Floating Tissues in the Night

We'll see how Linda does teaching Combat and Pump this morning on about 2 1/2 hours of sleep.  Same, Same.... just horrible insomnia all night long.  It was the "can't fall asleep" and the "can't stay asleep" kind all rolled into one.  She finally gave up at 5:10 a.m.  It's only 7:15 now and she is soooo tired.  After classes she wanted to hit the pool for a few hours with Tierney and then go to the outlet mall.  Plus, the yard isn't going to mow itself today so she better buck-up and just get it done.  Someone recommend Melatonin, a natural sleep herb.  Linda is going to get some today and then also try not eating after 7:00 p.m.  Since she eats dinner after church activities, a lot of the time it's 9:30 or later.  Famous Internet Dr. Web MD said that digestion can cause insomnia. 
What a good idea!  A pillow-tissue holder!

The one time she did fall asleep, I woke her up because I was afraid of the rain.  She was having a great dream and as she came awake, the parts of her dream floated away on single-ply tissues in the wind.  It was so real, she saw the tissues floating around the room when her eyes were open.  Linda's sleep patterns, muscle twitching, hallucinations and crazy dreams would make for a very interesting sleep study.
