What is going on?

It is now 3:23 a.m. and I am unable to sleep.

Sleeplessness is nothing I have ever struggled with - I'm the kinda gal who is sound asleep five minutes after I snuggle in bed. Occasionally I'll wake really early and be ready for the day, but I have no idea what is going on tonight or, I guess I should really say, this morning.

I tossed and turned for about two hours. Then I got up and walked around. Looked out the windows. Took the flashlight and checked to see if the skunk was in or out of his vacation home under my house. Watched infomercials for stuff I had no idea they even made (or that I needed so badly!) Went into the studio and primed two canvases. Sent a few emails. Studied the two new nautical charts of the Down East coastline.

Still I'm awake. WIDE awake.
So I think I'll plant some cucumber seeds and if I'm still not sleepy, I'm cleaning the refrigerator.

Anyone have any tips for a very sleepless night/morning?

I usually do that around the full moon for a few days. I just know not to go to bed until really late then. Sounds like you were as productive as could be though! ~Lili

DRUGS.
Sorry, but that's all I got.
Since I have 3 different sleep disorders, I can truly empathize with you. Hope this is just temporary!
