Good morning everyone! I know Shanny lurks around here late at night and early morning. I wish I didn't have insomnia and was in bed asleep. Count your blessings when you fall fast asleep every night!:)

Boy that is so true . . . it does me no good whatever to go to bed if I'm not sleepy - I just toss & turn. There are occasional nights that I don't GET sleepy, and wind up staying up all night. Once I start nodding off & get to bed, I can sleep for six-eight hours & wake up rested, but it's the getting to the drowsy stage that seems to take forever.

My wife has a lot of trouble sleeping, personally I hit a pill and next thing i know it's morning. Generally it takes a bomb or impending danger to wake me up during my sleep.

Shanny, do you have Sleep Apnea? There are many diabetics with that problem and you can be tested to see if you have it. There is a machine that is used to enable people with that problem to sleep!!!

I do have sleep apnea, Richard; I'm on CPAP, and it's a godsend. And I'm sure it's why I can sleep for eight hours straight once I fall asleep. Amazing that such a non-invasive application can work such miracles!

Tonight I'm just fascinated reading abut geodes, first I started thinking about sequoias so I researched them some then I thought about geode so I researched them... ah the internet, learn anything you want 24/7 no overdue book fees either =)

One of my favorite hobbies is collecting geodes, amethyst, crystal and other beautiful stones. I have gone to shows where they are sold. I pick the ones that cost around $100 each and limit myself to one purchase per year. I always see some very wonderful ones that are so big and beautiful, but they are way out of my price range. The ones I have look so pretty on shelves and places scattered throughout our house.

I'm lovin them, I always have liked the look of them growing up and just last night remembered them on some weird tangents. Turns out my wife had never heard or seen one before this morning. So I think I am definitely going to get myself one. I really like the amethyst ones. Those are really nice looking. I love that super expensive one more then anything because of the shape and multiple openings... so may are just round or tall oval like... which isn't all that interesting...

Looks Like I Fit Right In..!!

I've always been a "Night Owl".. especially that my better half (as a Nurse), works a 12 hour shift from 7p - 7a three shifts a week. My usual hours are bed @ 2a or so.. and sleep until 10a (give or take).

I mean.. what else is there to do but to talk to you guys at this time at night. So I guess I'm not so weird after all. On second thought don't ask Mrs. Breeze 2 or she might tell you differently! ;) :D

It's not that late here.. 11:30. For 50 years I could just go to bed at any reasonable hour and 5 minutes later I was asleep.. but for the last 3 years I don't even try until at least midnight, usually it's more like 1am and I have to get up for work in the morning. I know it's bad but I can't seem to change it so I run on about 5.5 hours per night during the week and 7 hours per night on the weekend. Hubby works evenings and doesn't get home until 3 or 4am. I probably have apnea.. tonight at dinner I promised my sister (also a diabetic and has apnea) that in a year or so I'll get checked. I don't think I can handle new diabetes and new apnea at the same time.
