Sleep - Who Needs it?
Some of you may have noticed that I have a poll in the sidebar about how much sleep you get each night. I'm an 8 hour girl. I don't always get 8 hours, but I am pretty much nonfunctional if I get less than 8. Actually, it's been a really long time since I've gotten 8 continuous hours of sleep. My nights are all tainted in some way or another. Case in point: last night we were reviewing our budget. Always fun. It was midnight when I finally crawled into bed. As I'm trying to sleep all I can think about is a song from Barbie's Princess and the Pauper movie. Yeah... "If you love meeeee for meeeeeeee..." And that goes on for WAY too long. I finally drift off and this is what I dream about.
Yes... I dreamt about that specific video. Kind of a restless sleep. Then, Red gets up to use the bathroom... he falls asleep in there. So, I get up, knock on the door, he finishes up, and then leaves the light on in the bathroom. Which lights up our room perfectly. So I get up... only to realize that I should NOT have drank all of that water right before bed. I finally get back to bed and Barbie comes twirling back into my brain... and then she duels Harry Potter. So, when Little Bug brought the Root Beer to me at 7:00 this morning, I was NOT ready to get up! I am grateful that he slept in though... he's usually up between 6-6:30. I would love to be able to say "Tonight will be different" But that would probably be a lie... it will just be different songs, movies and kids. And now... I'm off to do laundry! Joy.

p.s. my giveaway post is no longer a sticky post... it was confusing Carrot Jello ;) .....but if you'd still like to enter, just scroll down! There is a direct link at the carnivalat Rocks in My Dryer, so there's really no reason to have a sticky post.

I bet the people who came up with that video did it during a bout of insomnia. maybe you could do a disturbingly benign video too and then you could sleep. and keep the pipe bomb part was way kewl

I used to get 10 hours of sleep a night (before kids). Now it's more like 5 -6 hours. No wonder I'm always so tired! LOL!

Get a paper route. Then at least you're making money while you're NOT sleeping.

I'll give you mine. I'm about ready to retire.
