In reply to:
It seems that working on projects is useful to me for those nights that I just can't sleep
Yep that is what I do. Dale travels a lot. He is gone more than he is home this time of year. Then I don't sleep well, so I am usually up in the wee hours of the morning or in the middle of the night--working, Laundry, housework, projects, projects, projects.
Yeah, he wouldn't know what to do if I was any different. He says that is what caught his eye in High school. I always marched to my own beat and was/am a Tom boy. Ah, of course, it can make me be a handful to handle too
