I Couldn't Sleep this Morning . . .

So I got up at 3:30 a.m. I think I've figured out my problem, though. My dh is a night owl often coming to bed between 1 and 3 a.m. And that is my waking period now so when he does that I am trying and trying to get back to sleep and have such a hard time.

I feel like such a party pooper going to bed around 10 p.m., but I just don't function well in the late afternoon/evening. I'm at my best in the wee hours of the morning; although, at 3:30 a.m. all I'm capable of doing is some internet surfing. ;)

Lots of thoughts running around in my head. Feeling like life is about to take a turn. Don't know how I feel about it. Sometimes I feel excited and then other times I wonder if I am ever going to feel settled. Do you feel settled? Does that feeling really exist or am I just wrong inside my head? Do you know that you are where you are to stay is where you should be and stay forever? I wonder what that feels like.

Ok, totally rambling now.

How 'bout some eye candy?

Here's an Inque Boutique layout. I love cardstock driven layouts, and this picture of Jimmy is just so him.



Here's one about my favorite stuffed animal. I'm not really the sentimental kind. (Don't tell my kids that as I stuff old school papers under other things in the trash. I mean, how long does one keep a math paper?) But my Mom had this stuffed dog when she was a girl, and I had it in my crib when I was wee tiny, and I've had him ever since. "Big Doggy" held a place of honor on my bed all the way through my college days. He's missing stuffing in the middle from several nights of anguished crying and lonely moments where I squeezed him tight. He's been a great friend, and I'm in no hurry to get rid of him. Do you have a stuffed wubby somewhere that you're hanging on to?



And finally a card to round out the display (hee, hee: I'm really tired. Remember I've been up since 3:30 a.m. and that's been 15 hours now). Another Inque Boutique project:



Ok, I'd better stop now. I'm not even sure I will be able to proofread this. Is it to early to go to bed? Think the kids will go for it?

  2. just came across your blog....I
    love the layout with the "old" stuffy. and it reminded me of something really cool. My cousin took her five year old sons' stuffed animal to "Build-A-Bear" and for $5 (?) had him restuffed. The cute part was that part of the restuffing included him getting a heart. I had to share....
