Counting sheep keeps me up

When you have to be at work by 5:30am insomnia is highly annoying. Yesterday I finally went to sleep at 4. You would think I would be exhausted and falling asleep on my feet. Yes I am, except when I start thinking about going to sleep. Right now I am lying in bed wide awake. I went through this 4 years ago after a very painful breakup. I didn't sleep properly for a year and a half. My friend used to talk to me for hours at a time every night for that entire time. He was the one who would lull me to sleep. Well, I don't have that option so lets make lists!

5 things that made me happy today

1. Going to church.
2. Taking a shower mid day
3. Feeling the warm sun.
4. Realizing the kids camp I am working at tomorrow doesn't start until 1pm.
5. A sweet friend who always greets me with a smile and hug.

Books that made a difference to me
1. Dangerous Angels by Francesca Lia Block
2. Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
3. The Ice Queen by Alice Hoffman
4. A Year in the World by Frances Mayes
5. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
6. The scriptures by God :)

Movies I can watch over and over
1. Serendipity
2. Forgetting Sarah Marshall
3. Little Women
4. The Notebook

The best songs ever (aka the ones I can remember right now)
1. Thinking over by Dana Glover
2. I'll be by Edwin McCain or The Goo-Goo Dolls
3. These are the Days by Sugarland
4. Happy Ending by Sugarland
5. Seabreeze by Tyrone Wells
6. Broken Glass by Annie Lennox
7. 32 flavors by Ani DiFranco
8. Criminal by Fiona Apple
9. Silent all these years by Tori Amos...actually the entire cd Little Earthquakes

2 things I wish I could change
1. Feelings
2. My need to control everything

I have the predicament that I sleep fine but wake up every two or three hours with a start because I think I'm late for work or that I didn't wake up in time at all.
