I Can't Sleep!

I Can't Sleep!

Like many nights, I have the hardest time sleeping. I can either fall asleep, but will wake up three to four hours later. Or I have trouble falling asleep. I've tried lemon verbena (it works really well). I've also tried melatonin (it leaves me groggy). The last time I took an Ambien, I woke up after 5 hours and was miserable for the entire day. Below, is  advice  from some of my FaceBook friends. What are some of your remedies for those restless nights?

Heather  Sorry to hear you can't sleep. Sometimes a good book and a cup of tea helps me. I'm just always a nite owl and feel like I have to complete everything before I can go to bed. Otherwise I lay there and think of all the things I didn't do. Maybe this is a mom thing.

Making Waves

Making Waves

In the face of squalls, the Vista del Lago High girls swim team continues to push forward, carving out a legacy in the water at one of the area’s newest schools.

The Eagles are not funded by the Folsom-Cordova Unified School District, have a pool they can’t compete in for half the season and field no other aquatics program on campus which diminishes their numbers. But, bolstered by a fourth-place finish at last month’s Sac-Joaquin Section Swimming Championships, Vista del Lago’s girls have earned the reputation in the swimming community as a program on the rise.

“It’s really neat to (watch) – they’re setting the tone,” said Eagles coach Joel Garceau, who also heads the swim teams at Folsom High. “They’re setting the traditions.”

The three schools that finished ahead of Vista del Lago – St. Francis, Davis and Rio Americano, respectively – boast a combined 26 section swim titles, so, truly, there is no shame in fourth place.
