Sleep

How in the world do I get wonderful hubby back on the right sleep schedule? You would think I have an infant again. Remember those days? I feel like the walking dead. The sleeping pill worked for one night but now we are back up until one or two. Poor guy. Poor me. I am so sleep deprived I cant seem to make any type of decision. I just go in my sewing room and stare. So of course I am behind and playing catch up. He is going to get turned back around just in time to go again.

As promised here are a few more pictures from China. The first is a picture from Shenyang.From here he still had to drive almost 3 hours to get to Dandong( I think I spelled that wrong) which is right next to the N. Korean border. Shenyang is where the soccer games were for the olympics.This is a family greenhouse. I posted this one for you Jan! At night they roll the corn husks back down over the plastic. Since their weather is much like ours they have to have greenhouses or starve.

This was the view from Hubbys hotel window. That is the bridge the Americans bombed in 1950.The N. Koreans will not take it down, they want it left up as a reminder. The ferrris wheel you see was built not to operate but to give the illusion that they are having fun and are not in fact starving to death.Sad huh.No news on the baby watch. Favorite cousin was due yesterday. She did send me an audio file of his heartbeat.Its the sweetest thing you have ever heard.

Wow.... I'm trying to imagine how the heck they roll that husk around. Amazing. We have houses around here that are built all the way into the ground with grass and plants on the roof. That's what that reminds me of.

I don't know what to tell you on the sleep besides naps are your friends. Kind of like when you had a baby... sleep when you can ;-)

Researchers from the University of Warwick and University College London have found that lack of sleep can more than double the risk of death from cardiovascular disease, but that too much sleep can also double the risk of death.
