Oh how I wish I could work from home. I have loved the last few days at home even with the sick kids! I got to run this morning and then I did an upper body workout. Just because I had no where to go, I also got my ab workout done. Then I took a nice long bath after I had iced. It was so great. I even managed to get some laundry done.

The kids all seem better. My oldest still looks a little pale but has made it through two days of school. My youngest was set to go back to daycare tomorrow but convinced her Grammy to take her home tonight for one more day off.

I know it is late and I should be sleeping but just can't fall asleep. Don't know what's wrong lately. I was trying to blame it on the house of sickness but it's more than that. I have my trusty sleep aid but last night had some hallucinations with it. Plus you need at least eight hours with it and I don't have that to give tonight. After an hour of laying in bed, I thought I would get up and blog a little. My sister once told me she holds her arms straight up in the air when she can't sleep. Eventually they get tired and you fall asleep. I was going to try it but it was so warm under the covers! Any other ideas? I have cut down (way down) on the caffeine so that can't be it.

Back to work tomorrow. Hope I can find my desk.

I'm glad the kids are better but sorry you are out of the house again! Hallucinations?! Scary. I hate not being able to sleep. I usu. eat when I can't sleep, but that is NOT good advice. ;) Reading usu. helps me, but not always. Definitely can't just lie there & watch the clock. That drives me bonkers. And I bet it's a lot to do with the kids & lack of routine. When things are out of whack at our house, I don't sleep well either.

Hang in there!

I am telling you the arm trick works!!! First you start with your wrists forward for a few minutes and then lay them back for a few minutes. Because of all this stress lately, I have my own personal motto that I chant in my head everynight until finally I fall asleep.

LOL. I didn't know if Jana had told you that...cause I do the exact same thing! Sandy said she does it too. Too funny.

You should im me - I'm usually awake too. Get to bed too late to take lunesta, it stinks.

Hope the kids are better.
