Abelincoln, have you ever tried Meletonin? Worked wonders for me. If I have had too much sleep I notice I have a hard time falling asleep and staying asleep. Another reason to have regular sleep bed times. Duh. Maybe that is why you feel sleepy during the day. You may not be getting restful sleep Ha...

I love Fiestaware. I used to have my grandmother's and lost it moving around in my careless youth. Cringe. I am seriously considering getting the new stuff. My sister has it and loves it.
