I have “Chronic Insomnia of Unknown Causes” that is the sleep clinic’s diagnosis. Duhhhhhh I knew that! I just wanted them to tell me how to fix it. Cause I’ve been trying every other remedy I’ve heard for years. The sleep clinic’s only solution was drugs.. One drug to help me sleep and another to stop me from feeling the lethargic side effect the next day. I do have to admit on rare occasion I pop a pill to sleep but its pretty rare since my prescription is about 4 years old or so.

I used to lay in bed for hours exhausted and in tears because I was so tired but my mind and body won’t turn off. Now I have learned to function on little sleep and instead of laying there… doing nothing… exhausted… get up… grab a glass of red wine and do something productive. Tonight I tried to sleep but that was not in my stars so I poured a glass of wine, put on some tunes and did some crafts and make a crock pot of potato leek soup for tomorrow. Guess who doesn’t have to cook at all tomorrow!

I will post a separate blog post with my recipe after I make sure it tastes good. Watch for the link.

Some people know that wearing a flower in my hair is kinda my signature. Its a very rare occasion when you don’t see one in my hair and that’s usually cause I simply forgot…  Some of the ones I have were starting to get pretty rough looking… others are just lost. So tonight I decided to heat up the glue gun and make a few new ones!

I have also been working on organizing and decorating my bed room in pink and black so I hung some sparkly pink ribbon on my closet door so I have a place for my hair flowers until I do the actual project I have in mind to display/store them. (picture coming soon).

See the ugly retro bed tray I redid in sparkly pink:

    I almost never leave a renospse, however I read a few of the comments here Contact Us . | My Aging and Wellness. I actually do have a couple of questions for you if it’s okay. Is it just me or does it seem like a few of these renospses appear like they are written by brain dead people? And, if you are writing at additional online sites, I’d like to keep up with everything fresh you have to post. Would you make a list of the complete urls of your social community pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
