I am getting between 7-8 hours of sleep a night. I need more but that is better than I've been doing. I've been stressed because of a terminal illness in someone very close to me. So I find it hard to get to sleep at night. I fall asleep around 1 and wake up somehwere beween 7:30 and 8:45 -- depending. My new experiment with black-out cloth velcroed to the windows has arrived. It is just for 1 window. The guy is having problems getting the cloth from his supplier for some reason. So he made up one (I need 6) with a piece of the cloth he had that was stained -- just so we could do a test run to see if it worked OK. If it does, it will be a G*d send.
