something to be thankful for

In the spirit of Thanksgiving I am going to post about something I am thankful for everyday, time and spirit willing! It will be known as "STBTF" tomorrow and in future days.

Today I am thankful for the credits my school has transferred in, hence my not needing to take the required PE class or the required how-to-be-a-college-student class. They pulled two credits from my military career, and after searching a little I think it's based on military basic training/boot camp. Um, I went through basic training in 1989, but who's complaining!? I only needed one credit for that. They also awarded me the one credit from my university level how-to-be-a-college-student class! I also noticed they gave me 28 credits from my psych degree. Don't know how that all fits into the ball game. Need to research that one!

That would all be equivalent to time, money and energy. Thank you to the powers that be. Now I'm only hoping they also transfer my 5 A&P credits and am still awaiting that decision.

sleep habits of an infant

Insomnia: trouble falling asleep, staying asleep, or waking up too early.

How about all the above?

That's me! It goes in cycles. I'll have a few nights where I either wake up in the middle of the night, such as tonight, or I wake up around 4 a.m.

Either way, not good!

Then I guess because I am so exhausted I'll have a few nights where I'll sleep like a log, and every parent's dream...
through the night! Too bad I'm 37 years old! Might as well be an infant!

One cause of insomnia is stress. No!? You don't say!

"Having un-refreshing sleep (not feeling well rested), even after sleeping 7 to 8 hours at night". 7-8 hours!? If only! My average these days is probably more like 5 and that's a stretch many nights.
