Default On TOTV at 3:30 AM

The only thing stranger than being on TOTV at 3:30 AM when I can't sleep is the fact that I'm not alone, 8 other people are also online!!! :dontknow: I'm sure glad I'm retired!

What do the rest of you do if you have insomnia?

Well, I turn on the boob tube and find the most boring non-info-commercial thing I can find, set the sleep timer and force myself to watch it. If I'm still awake after 15 minutes, I give up, grab whatever book I'm reading and have at it.

I've also been known to clean at that time. In California, where grocery stores are open 24/7, I'd go grocery shopping -- no crowds, stores are pretty much stocked by 3:30 and the checkers don't want to stand around and chat with you.

Good suggestion Red. Never thought of going to Walmart which is open 24/7.

Grab a cup of coffee and log on to TOTV. The only problem is I don't go back to sleep because I keep surfing TOTV!

I to shop when I can't sleep. That is the only time I can stand Walmart. Love having the store to myself.
Speaking of by myself, we went to Marion Market yeasterday to get some onions that our Ohio friends love. Never again!!!!! It took a half hour just to get out of the market. My friends will just have to come tho TV and get their own next time. We were sure not alone there.

What do the rest of you do if you have insomnia?
I usually don't get up if I can't sleep. I have a couple of CD's with nature sounds. No chirping birds or screeching moneys allowed. One is rain. The other is the rhythmic, hypnotic sound of surf hitting the beach. The surf one is longer so that's the one I usually use.

The reason I can't sleep sometimes is because my brain wants to stay awake. I am sure that is the reason for most people. But for some reason the sound of the surf gets my brain's attention and shuts it up.

If I need to wake my brain up, I use Mozart or just crank up that lovely melody we all know and love, "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida" by Iron Butterfly.

Don't look at me -- I usually get to sleep between 1:00 and 2:00 am, up by 6:30 at the latest. If I sleep more than 5 hours, I'm either sick or feel like I'm sick since I'll wake up with a colossal headache from sleeping too much.

Made it great for high school and college -- since I needed less sleep, I'd have enough time to study in between other activities.

Actually makes it harder as an adult -- you're still ready to do things and the rest of the world wants to sleep. But I'm usually done with my chores before 10:00 am, which leaves time to goof around.

Eventhough I might be up at 3:30AM I wouldn't log on to TOTV. Then all the 3000+ members would confirm what they already expected - that I have no life. If I'm up at that time then I should be planning my activities for the day!!! :

Actually, the only people who can see if you're logged on are those who are logged on at the same time. Which means they have no life either! :redface:

Unless you stupidly do a post like this one which announces to the world I was on TOTV at 3 AM. :joke: Yes, it is embarassing to admit it! But it is hilarious to find other people on at 3 AM as well. ;D ;D
