Today's email from http://www.storypeople.com/:
I don't really like coffee, she said, but I don't really like it when my head hits my desk when I fall asleep either.
I hate insomnia. I try to gut it out, I'm awake until 3am, but have to get up at 7am. And then I'm useless. If I take one of the many different sleeping pills I've been prescribed over the years, I'm so dopey in the morning that I'm useless. I hate this! I've had it all my life -- these bouts of insomnia that can last three months or more. Lately, I can't even get a nap that helps.
Tonight I start my first silversmithing class -- it runs all weekend, locally, thank goodness, and is run by artist Sue Stockman. I honestly don't think that I'll suddenly become a silversmith. I really don't feel my talents or even interests lie in that direction, and heaven knows I don't need to buy MORE tools and equipment. But I really would like to learn to bezel set these antique buttons I have, and learn a bit more about simple riveting and chain making. I have NO idea what to expect, but I hope I can keep up!
