Sleep Aids

I have always had a hard time falling asleep.  Most times it is caused by my brain’s inability to shut off.  Ok, and the fact that I procrastinate going to sleep as much as possible.  As any of my former (or current) roommates will tell you, an excessive amount of my blabbering is required to make my mind clear enough to sleep.  The other night I was telling Aaron (for the 50 millionth time) how I was glad that I am not someone who needs something to sleep (like Ambien) but that I really need to create better sleep habits, like going to bed “on time” and making to-do lists, etc.

The next morning I told Aaron how it took me over an hour to fall asleep, because I was up thinking about really important things, like how I really need to make sweatpant overalls and how it would be great to make up some tote bags that say “working on my night cheese” with a felt cheese picture on them.  Aaron was almost speechless but managed to reply: “maybe you should look in to getting some Ambien.”

    What is night cheese?

    It’s from 30 Rock, where Liz (the main character) is eating a huge wedge of cheese and singing about it. So night cheese would be the cheese you eat at night, versus your midday or morning snack cheese.

    haha…when I was pregnant I would wake up in the night and lay there and think for about an hour. I have my best ideas come to me at that time. Weston always thought I was nutty when I would get up in the morning and tell him the results of my brainstorming session. That is funny…smart people have a struggle turning off the brain power!

    Hilarious. Aaron must have been dying. I have the same problem at night. I will do anything to avoid going to sleep and, if I do get myself to bed before being in a semi-c0matose state, stay up and think. Usually about horrible things, but sometimes there are some awesome ideas in there. Nothing as great as Night Cheese, though.

    Sometimes I have a hard time falling asleep. I usually lull myself to sleep by watching my favorite TV shows.
