On lack of sleep ... and I'm too tired to remember what else

Fresh when it gets here from Julie Barrett
Thursday, July 23, 2009

So I've been trying something that's supposed to "promote natural sleep habits" and cut down on the hot flashes. It worked for a few nights. I'll keep it up for the month. I've paid for the damn pills already, I may as well use them.

Yes, I'm desperate. Sleep is fleeting these days. I'm told it's a common condition for women my age and I should just grab the rest while I can. Even if I don't sleep I should just kick back and relax. Read a book, watch a movie, close my eyes for a bit. I try, and that does help. But it still doesn't beat a night of sleep.

Oh, it's been worse. And right now the alternative seems to be to take a truckload of hormones. Given the risks, I think I'll pass. And Paul (oh, I love that man!) agrees. So there ya go.

This too shall pass. In the meantime, I should see it as an excuse to get in a truckload of reading and research on the various WIP's. That's the ticket.

One more bit o' news: "Two of the Deadliest" is #1 on the Amazon Mystery anthology list. The Kindle edition is #2, and the large print edition is #15. This is very exciting. Thanks to everyone who has purchased a copy. I hope you enjoy it!
