Not Sleeping

It is 12:37am and I should be fast asleep.  I went to bed at 11pm feeling very tired, settled down to  sleep and  the suddenly  I was wide awake. Tossing and turning doesn't help, it justs makes for frustration and it disturbs my darling.

So  I got up, made a cup of tea and switched the tv on.  Have you seen the junk on tv after midnight?  Ok it isn't so hot before midnight but after...forget it.  I am beginning to wonder why we have a television.  I have recorded Oprah so she is on at the moment, but not caught my attention this time.

So I have been doing one of my favourite things for the past hour, Blog-Hopping, from weight loss to crafting to cooking to weird. I don't linger long at weird, but the others I do, some inspire, some make me laugh and some make me cry.

There are some really wonderful blogs out there that I dip into now and again.  I follow many, but I also have some in my favourites that I dip into  just now and again.  If I Followed any more than I do now I would be in trouble time wise, I am often tempted, especially if I read a comment on a blog that grabs my attention, I will go look at that blog.Then I have to make a tough decision, if I want to follow it I have to let another go.  So I usually put it in my favourites and check it out now and again.  I can't give up the blogs I follow, it would be like giving up on friends.

Am I investing too much time and interest on blogging?
Am I placing too much importance on friendships with people I have never met and probably never will?
Mmm.. should I have written this post?

Sorry you are having trouble sleeping; hopefully the Sandman spinkles some of his magic dust over you soon.

Aw, I hate the sleepless thing - been waking up in the wee small hours and not able to get back to sleep a lot lately. It is most annoying.

I've been fretting about blogs a lote lately too as time has been so short and my mood hasn't been too good really. Still, I do enjoy reading them and if I am wavering diet-wise, it does help to get me back into the correct mindset, so they are great for keeping focussed.

Plus, I just love those peeps!

They are just that She- friends who you have yet to meet. They rely on being able to pop into your blog as much as you need to follow them so continue just as you are. You are my very very best friend but it still gives me a buzz when you put a comment on my blog too. It can make a good start to what might be a difficult day or a good ending to what has been a bad day. Some people rely on blogs for social interaction due to isolation etc so there are so many reasons to carry it on you xxx

Oh please carry on blogging Sheilagh. I dont think that there could ever be too much time wasted on friends, virtual or not. After all, we all have a lot in common or else you would not have met them in the first place. I for one love reading your blog, and many others. Sometimes I find the time to comment, but even on the days where I really don't have enough time, I still love to flick through them all and its good to know there are people out there that go through the same battles as me on a daily basis. It makes you realise your not alone. Especially, if like me, I dont attend meetings, I get weighed at home, but without the interaction of you guys, and the help, inspiration, and encouragement that I get from you all, I know that this journey would be a very lonely one x x x

I do it for selfish reasons. Bloggers give me all the feedback, anytime, that that I need to be successful. It doesn't matter if you meet them or not. We are helping each other. You need to be smart about it. I think your intention behind bloggin is important too. That will help you balance things out.

And who knows.....we could meet. It could happen.

hugs my friend

I know I allow myself too much time with blogs. But they are undeniably helpful. I have learned so much that has made a real difference in my journey.
