WTH??? It's 4 AM!!!!

I've been up since 4:00 this morning.




Normally, I am the type of girl who lays her head down on the pillow and I'm down for the count. Other then sometimes waking up to use the bathroom, I'm a goner all night long. Sometimes I'm out even before laying down. I can fall asleep at my desk (shhhh don't tell my boss), in the car, sitting up, sitting sideways, bent backwards (don't ask) and yes, even on the potty. I guess that has something to do with me having Narcolepsy huh? But for some reason the past few weeks, sleep keeps escaping me. It's RIGHT. THERE. but I just can't grasp it. I'm reaching for it, stretching out to grab it but at the last second, it moves away.

I have had a lot of things going on lately, some of which I haven't even shared with you guys, my three readers, so I guess that could be a big reason for the long sleepless nights. I'm so tired at night and sometimes I can fall asleep like normal. But then, in the middle of the night, I wake up and can't go back to sleep. Of course, then I'm completely exhausted and fighting to keep my eyes open around now, 6 am, when it's time for me to get up and ready for work. Doesn't seem quite fair that I'm ready to fall back to sleep only when it's time to get up again!

I have Saturdays and Sundays off of work but J works on Saturdays so it's just me and B today. Our new favorite ritual is to go to Einstein Bagels after dropping my mom off at work. So we'll do that this morning for breakfast. Then the rest of the day will be spent cleaning up this house. Its not messy by anyones normal standards but J is a neat freak and is not normal! So it's messy for us. And I have a bunch of laundry to do. Guess it's been all the hours I've been spending here on the couch playing on my laptop that's been affecting the housework. Who knew if you were constantely screwing around, reading blogs, that your house would look like a bomb hit it? On the upside though, I've made some new spidy friends in all the cobwebs that have grown in the corners of my rooms. I'm telling everyone they're Halloween decorations and then won't have to deal with them until November...

I'm off and running to start my day. Hope everyone has a great Saturday!

Hi Andrea......just found you over at SITS! I hate when I wake up and can't fall back asleep. Totally ruins the day. I know it usually happens when I have a lot going on. Hopefully tonight you will get a good nights sleep!!!

Somewhere out there in blogland there must be a name for what happens to our homes when we start discovering all the wonderful blogs out there! Mine's looking very neglected. I like that your using live specimens in your holiday decor, lol.

Hey! I stopped by, found you at twitter when you found me. So can I be your fourth reader? Sorry about no sleep. I suffer from boughts of insomnia sometimes. If you want I can send you a tape of my husband telling a boring high school story from almost twenty years ago. It puts me to sleep everytime. I like it over here. I'm glad I stopped by!

I woke up at 3:30 am earlier this week, it sucked. Once I'm awake, I'm up until it's time to go back to bed which is around 11pm. I try to sleep in on the weekends but my internal alarm clock normally goes off at 5am.

Hey! I hope you finally got some sleep. It's 6:55 am PST and I haven't gone to sleep since yesterday. Sleep is escaping us both but I hope you lasso him to the ground and beat it into submission and then when you're through, can you pass it on to me? haha

oh, I really like it over here. You're funny, and honest and intense-- real.

Anyone who can pull off real spider webs for Halloween is someone I need to know!

Hope you get that sleep soon,

Spread the Love!

Can't Get Enough? How about these?
