damned insomnia

1. I am glad I tried to get sleep by turning everything off before 11 pm (it didn't work, i woke up at 3 am)

2. I am glad that instead of continuing to scratch myself silly when I woke up at 3 am I applied a good lotion

3. I am glad I decided to set an alarm to try to get us up earlier so we could really attempt a decent schedule which just might help my insomnia (even if I immediately fell back asleep due to the early morning sleep disturbance)
