On insomnia

No one told me preteens suffered from insomnia. I know all about the other symptoms: acne, angst, attitude (and those are just for starters). I've been trying to convince my daughter to take advantage of the time by writing in her journal, listening to music, and reading. If only I had the time for such things. Typically, as soon as my head hits the pillows, and certainly two or three pages into the novel I'm currently reading, I'm fast asleep. (At least until offspring decides to get up and make yet another trip to the toilet.)

coverHere's what I'd be reading long into the night if I were not so tired, both of which I picked up over a week ago:
  • The Last Rake In London by Nicola Cornick
  • Your Scandalous Ways by Loretta Chase
I started Your Scandalous Ways and I'm still not done! Shameful!!
