Awoke at 1:30 so far I’ve watered, weeded, watched you tube (nasty neighbors & comedian Tom Mabe) cleaned kitchen, showered and now heading to grocery store for more ice cream. Hurricanes are arriving at 9 so no nap today.
What do you do when you can’t sleep?

I take Ambien, so I usually don't have that problem. I'd probably be on my iPad if I couldn't sleep. Weeding would not be in the mix.

My goodness you are so productive! I usually lay there trying to get to sleep, I might read or go watch some TV downstairs so I don't wake Ken. Hope you get a nap in today.

Sorry you're not sleeping well Tom.
When I have nights like that which is quite often.....I usually toss and turn. They say that is the last thing to do.
There have been times I go on my computer, read or I watch TV.
Hope you sleep better tonight!

I have the 20-minute rule. Can't sleep, get up...
1. read in the living room (try to sleep again after 1 hour)
2. watch TV/Netflix in the distant front room (repeat the end of #1)
3. sleeplessness is usually associated with some kind of ache of pain. If you have something from the pharmacy, try that (repeat #1 with trying to sleep).
4. get us and stay up. Your tiredness may make the next night a restful one.

I envy my wife who can sleep for 10 hours and want more. 5 to 6 hours is an accomplishment for me.
