Oh I am so sorry again.. LIsten to me....Read this go close your eyes and go to my special place...It's all yours..

 Close your eyes.. think about a meadow soft and green, a slight breeze, beautiful Bluebells, and Trilliums growing wild around the meadow, which is nestled right in the middle of a The most beautiful redwood forest....You are here lying in this small clearing with the sun trickling down like a beam onto the lush green meadow grass..and your face. The birds singing and the sound of a small underground creek which pokes its head just above ground and tumbles lightly over a small embankment where it forms the most beautiful waterfall which flows softly down through the wooded area along side the clearing, traveling on about 500 more feet where it just vanishes into the earth again making its underground Journey onto its destination of the rushing river...

Smell the fresh air and listen to the sounds of nature around you as you here the slight rustle of leaves in the wind..feel the sunshining down upon your face with a warmth that spreads across your body filling you with a soft groggy warm glow as your eyes begin to drift oft into a restful slumber and your mind clears of its worries and finds peace and solitude there beneath the beauty that surrounds you! restful thoughts quiet moments soft trickles of water and peace.... Dreaming now in the quiet slumber of your mind.....Sleep well friend.....

The birds singing Pesky birds !!...kill em all !! and the sound of a small underground creek which pokes its head just above ground and tumbles lightly over a small embankment where it forms the most beautiful waterfall which flows softly down through the wooded area along side the clearing, traveling on about 500 more feet where it just vanishes into the earth again making its underground Journey onto its destination of the rushing river... Now  I want to do a wee wee !!  ;D

Been up again all night.. am feeling pretty worn out but still can't sleep...so bored....Here it is 1;00 in the afternoon and I am still in my nightgown..I haven't even gotten dressed, but I didn't chang until 4:00 am this morning .. In hopes that sleep would come if I tried to fool it! Yeah right Instead I was rather bad and posted and emailed out of boredom! You should never email when your bored you might bore people to death and depress them!!

Me too, I thought with everything that happened and no sleep the last couple nights, that maybe I could crash earlir but ther is no sign of sleep! I am so sorry.. you either.. Have the kids got off to school.. I hope you find a poit to dose off for a couple hours, I am thinking of putting in a tape a friend loaned me a Shirley Maclaine video to watch, I love her!Shirley Maclaine that is.. My friend is great to, but thats not what I meant! I hope your day goes well.

I lost my mind years ago...think I left it near a vending machine when I was 12 !!...it probably got thrown away with the rest of the trash !!....

Think I'll go and bang my head on the wall.....!!..keep an ear out for a 'hollow' sound !!

Thanks Karen.....

You should get some sleep...at least go to bed !!...you've still got most the night left haven't you ?

Be well...speak later

Hugs

What frustrates me is that when I do go to sleep it is quite literally for five minutes !!...just like we discussed earlier !!

I've found that approximately 5 minutes of strenuous exercise right before bed helps me sleep like a baby. ;D
