As readers might remember, I have had insomnia off and on for a number of years.  Not constantly, it happens about once a year and lasts for 3-4 months.  Very irritating, to say the least.

Anyway, a few weeks ago I had a bad cold and combined with that, I wasn’t sleeping at all.  I was a zombie through the day and exhausted in the evening, yet, I couldn’t sleep.

I decided to cut out caffeine.  No more coffee in the mornings, no cola products.  For the first while, it was tough not having that pick me up in the morning.  I am drinking decaf coffee since I do like a hot beverage in the morning and don’t really care all that much for tea.  I am also drinking a lot more water, several glasses during the day and at least two later in the evening.

The good news:  I am sleeping quite well.  I do wake up a time or two every night but typically that is to get rid of some of the extra water I am drinking.  I am sleeping over 7 hours a night though so that’s awesome.  Not much of a bad side, other than I am missing the occasional latte from Starbucks.  I have totally given up on caffeine products and although I could go back to regular coffee and see if it affects me, I’d rather sleep, so, by caffeine.

The Fall has zipped by.  Baseball season ended a few weeks ago, it was good to umpire into October this year.  I am on the Board of Directors for Babe Ruth again, it will give me something to do and maybe keep me out of a bit of trouble.  I am on vacation this week, using up the remainder of my time for the year.  It has been a nice relaxing week.

Nothing much else going on, I guess I am preparing for winter hiberation.
