How long does it take to fall asleep? NaBloPoMo

Tricky question. Once I finally talk myself into laying down, it takes fifteen minutes or less to fall asleep. Of course, that does not mean I stay asleep.

I usually wake up at least twice because I’m searching for something in a dream and wake up looking for whatever it is. One time I woke up in the parking lot of my apartment building. Luckily I had pants on. 

A good night’s sleep is sometimes elusive at my house. I’m open to suggestions. 

I found this cool poster of the side effects of sleep deprivation on Pinterest from Anna Anderson Walker. She also has a blog “Torchlight Conceptions” at Her latest blog is about sneezing. Interesting stuff. 



“Just a small town girl – living in a lonely world.” Concert tickets are practically essential. Musicals are the key to life. I like movies, music,books, and corny jokes.


  1. I’m on medicine that causes me to do all kinds of weird stuff in my sleep including “sleep eating”. I am a vegetarian and I have woken up three times eating some kind of cold meat. A leftover cheeseburger, some cold spaghetti with meat sauce. One morning I woke up and lying on my pillow with me was a cold piece of barbequed chicken that I had apparently eaten a little off of and then slept the night with. It’s pretty disconcerting, you know? I have found if I eat sugar it is more likely to happen; probably my body needing protein, so I have quit eating sweets and it hasn’t happened in a while thankfully, LOL!
