Mug-O-Comfort Swap...

I'm a total airhead. I just don't know where my mind has been. 
In other places obviously... 

Because I totally forgot about to post about the last swap I did!

   

 I got my swap from Karen at Creative Expressions. This was a great swap for me. I LOVE tea, and we have a HUGE mug collection in this house. I'll admit that I have more than 1 mug that I love to use.


 Until I got this! 
  

 It is the CUTEST thing in the world! and SO me!

Now I'll show you the rest of the package.

Look at this loot. A box of blueberry tea, 2 tins of different loose teas from a local shop, some flavored honey sticks from a local place, a totally cute little "tea" pot candle holder with a candle, and a GREAT loose tea scoop. (Mine has died and gone to the great garbage in the sky, so I've been using my french press.. which is annoying sometimes)

I had so much fun getting to know Karen with this swap. I think we'll be good email/blogging friends.

There's a new swap going on over at Chaotic Goddess!
I LOVE this group! And the two ladies that run it are WONDERFUL!
Go on over and take a look!

Who needs sleep...

I've suffered with insomnia since I was about 16. 

On and off medication to help me sleep.

Tried everything in the book to try to sleep...

Yet lately... It's just not working for me.

I fall asleep around 12.00-12.30, after taking my nightly meds around 10-11. 

It never fails. Between 2.30-4.30 I wake up, and I'm awake for hours.

Lils sleeping while I'm not. I feel bad for her also tho, because I am always messing up her sleep.
But then again, she'll sleep all day long.

Tried everything to go back to sleep, only to eventually end up playing games on my phone, or reading from my kindle.

Eventually falling to sleep hours later, and not getting out of bed until sometime after 10.30-12.00. Depending on how long I was awake.

I'm trying to get on a decent schedule, but I just always end up sleeping right thru my alarm clock.

I'm tired of not having a regular sleeping schedule. 

Guess I'll have to talk to the doctor about something different to take.

Do you have problems sleeping?

What do you do when you can't sleep.

missing in action...

walks up to the microphone

Hello!
My name is Sarah,
and I'm a Pinterest addict.

I've been lost in my own little world the last 5 days or so.

I've been on Pinterest, pinning.

and when I haven't been doing that, I've been crocheting slippers...

I haven't finished the book for Book Club on Thursday.
Which is actually a very good book so far. 
We're reading A Week In Winter by Maeve Binchy

I think I may need some rehab.

Or maybe I just need to "just keep pinning!"
hahaha... little Dory joke there.
