I would like to know the percentage of people who have more trouble sleeping on Sunday night than any other day of the week. Sunday after Sunday, no matter much rest I do or do not get during the course of the weekend or even earlier that Sunday, I find myself tossing and turning when it comes time to go to bed, as does my ladyfriend. Sometimes we go to bed early, thinking that's the cure, and it does not work. Other times, like last night, we try to wait until we are sleepy and go to bed around 1:30 or so, hoping that 6 or 7 hours we get will be enough. Last night, my lady went right to sleep, and I stayed up for a good two hours or so.

During that two hour period I watched football highlights, I dabbled on my laptop a bit, I watched people filter out of the strip club outside my house, I briefly contemplated a little self love, I drank copious amounts of water, and that was only in a 30 minute span. Then when I did fall asleep, I was awakened like 20 minutes later by the very tv I was using to occupy myself when I COULDN'T sleep. So I turned the television off, and found myself tossing and turning again. It's just torture, and I don't want to turn to Ambien or anything like that, because then I'll be addicted.

So my 4 readers, I turn to you. Give me suggestions for a sound Sunday night slumber. I seem to do just fine Monday thru Saturday.

Try drinking cup of Sleepy Time or Chammomile tea an hour before you are ready to go to sleep; knocks me right on out.

Yeah... ditto the tea suggestion AND read a book with it.

agree with miss lady...hot chamomile tea, or better yet...a hot bath in lavendar oil, followed by chamomile tea. And then have sex. That makes me pass out.
