Counting Sheep

I’ve never had an issue sleeping.  In fact, if I could find a country that required daily naps, I’d move there immediately.  I LOVE sleeping.

Last night, I could not sleep, for some odd reason.  So here, just for you, is a review of the observations I made last night.  Due to my somewhat tired mind, it’s not really a story, or a conversation, or even easy to follow.  Whatever. Really, it’s a life lesson for all.  Enjoy. 

  • When your husband has a bad back, he sleeps flat on it. 
  • That leads to really, really loud snoring.
  • If you are unlucky enough to be the second one to bed, you will find it difficult to sleep.
  • Covering your head with a pillow merely muffles the noise.  It does not mask it.
  • Google suggests that putting the pillow over your spouses face will also not help.  And most likely, your roommate in prison will also snore loudly.
  • Moving to your almost four year olds bed has advantages, like a snuggle buddy.
  • But you can still hear your husband snoring, through the wall.
  • And, guess what? Your almost four year old also snores.
  • She’s cute thought, so staying is definitely worth it.
  • Although it makes one wonder, what they heck am I laying on top of?
  • OH.  It’s a rubber duck.
  • And three containers of Silly Putty.
  • Wait… what am I kicking?
  • Oh… A pink princess guitar.
  • Ah, OK, back to sleep.
  • What is that noise? An alarm clock??
  • Yes, it’s an unplugged alarm clock.  In the closet. With a battery back up.  
  • OK, I shut it off.
  • Seriously it’s going off again.  Ugh.
  • Wow, I’m really impressed with myself!  I didn’t throw that out the window!
  • Yes, Sam, we can get you some milk.
  • And yes, Sam, we can go potty.
  • Sam, stop crying.  It’s OK.  Mommy didn’t kill your ducky.  He likes sleeping under me.
  • Let’s go sleep in Mommy’s room.
  • Yes, you can bring your duck.
  • No, you cannot bring the guitar.
  • Yes, Daddy snores really loud.
  • Is that the alarm?
I’m really tired today.
