  1. when sleep won’t come
    they say you’ll cry and cry all night
    sleep can’t hide from you

    Happy 6WS!

  2. Whenever that happens to me…my artistic Muse take over…then I am up all night! 🙂

  3. I’m right there with you. I’m hoping a late night Oprah will do the trick. Good luck catching those Zzzzzs!

  4. 6 words for you this morning: “O sleep gently, what a sight.” from the Welsh lullaby Suo Gân.

      What are the rest of the words to that lullaby? Where can I find the tune? Maybe I can lull myself to sleep!

      • sorry I missed this earlier – I’had been up for a couple of days and passed out on the couch so, I got about 5 hrs sleep today. Yay!
        I wish I could remember them. I found it in an old book I had yrs ago. I haven’t thought of it in a long time till this morning.
        I hope you get some rest and a good deep sleep soon.

  5. My six word response:

    Sometimes, it’s a state of mind.

    Here’s mine…hope you can stop by to visit with me today if you can.

  6. drink some milk, have better sleep.

    Happy Saturday!

      This is what’s so puzzling to me: I drink hot cocoa EVERY night. The real stuff. Made with milk. Not that &^%$ sugary powder that comes in a packet or in a can. So why can’t I sleep, Doctor Jingle?

  7. ~oh no…i have had many times the same…maybe a hot cup of tea…i do hope you get some rest…warm wishes and brightest blessings~

  8. that must be terrible. i used to be a certified insomniac for years and i hated it. my sleepless nights gave me migraine attacks.

    if you have time, my 6ws post is here. happy weekend!

  9. Insomnia – the curse of the sleepless.

      Your sardonic wit

      Convulses me with laughter,

      Keeping me from sleep,

      Both now and ever after!

    I feel your pain! There is nothing worse than being tired, getting into bed, then tossing and turning–unable to sleep. I used to sleep like a baby, but not anymore…

    • magicalmysticalteacher

      Oh, I fall asleep just fine at bedtime. It’s the waking at 1 or 2 a.m. that’s killing me! 🙂

  11. Welcome to my world! Hope it doesn’t last long…

    Have a great weekend!

  12. oh me to I have been taking a tylenol pm before bed because can not fall asleep and stay asleep anymore

    • magicalmysticalteacher

      I hope your story doesn’t turn out to be my story, because I despise taking medication of any sort!

  13. Sadly, sleep is sometimes the most elusive and the most needed. Hope you get a good night sleep soon.
