What do you find yourself doing on those sleepless nights?

Many nights I have found that Mr Sleep has forgot about my existence and has left me wide eyed and with extra hours of free time.
On those sleepless nights i usually find myself playing my guitar to accompany the orchestra of barking dogs and wild life outside my house.

Im curious, What do you find yourself doing on those sleepless nights.
Please don't write down "surf the internet" or "youtube" ;) I want to read interesting
stories.

    Ha!! So you want us to lie to you?.....LOL

    It's hard to stay away from the computer isn't it?

    I personally enjoy reading.....sometimes when I have coffee too late in the day....I pay the hefty price of being up past what I consider normal bed time.

    Books are my best companion. I can sit and read 3-4 hours and get lost in a book.

    Other times, like when I am under stress, and I wake up like at 4 in the morning.....I do what every normal housewife usually does....make coffee.....start a load of laundy.....bake some cranberry bread.....sweep.....and wait for the sun/son(along with the rest of the family) to come out.

    It's a bummer when our sleep cycle is thrown off.

    zzzzzz....Mary
