Daily Life: Who needs sleep?

10 Aug

It’s now day two of our trip and both E and I are lacking sleep! We got to Maryland in time for lunch and then checked into the hotel right at nap time. Instead of actually napping though E just laid in her makeshift crib and sung twinkle twinkle little star over and over.. I have to admit I am seriously impressed with how still and quite she was for the two hours but the napping part of it didn’t happen!! I was a little worried how the rest of the day would go and I had every right to be!

E decided since she had some down time she would be a riot at the viewing.. lucky me!! I spent the majority of the night chasing her around, watching her melt into a tantrum every time I said no, and try not to look to embarrassed when she growled and everyone. That’s right – my daughter RAWRS like a dinosaur or monster… at everyone. (Thank you Caillou)

That was pretty much my day yesterday 😛

This morning I woke up 4:30 and couldn’t go back to sleep. You would think from being completely exhausted I’d pass out no problem but that’s just not the case! Instead I’ve been up working on feature’s and miscellaneous work. So this car ride to Philly? I hope we both get some shut-eye 😉

Daily Life: My Husband Must Think I’m Crazy

10 Jun

Last night B went to bed a little later than usual yet I stayed up like a crazy person! Then once I got in bed I finished reading my book 😛 The part in which he must think I am crazy.. I woke up at 4:30 a.m. and couldn’t go back to sleep. Yeap.. four hours of sleep. Usually I only wake up super early when I have a ton on my mind or I was drinking the night before. In this case it was neither. I just woke up with some serious energy and I am ready to start my day! Although there’s not much that I can do at 5:00 a.m. when my sewing machine is broken and the grocery store doesn’t open this earlier (even if it did E doesn’t wake up this early!).

So what do I do when this happens? I sit in the dark living room writing a blog post 😛

Most of the time when I do wake up this early I end up falling asleep on the couch an hour later but today might not be the same. Once B gets out of the shower I am going to hop in and then make my grocery list and cut coupons. I plan on making some sweet deals today!! Let’s hope it works out 😀

If all goes well today I plan on spending the day with E on the deck in her pool and me laying out getting a tan!! We all know I could desperately use one 😉

Hope everyone else is having a relaxing Friday as well!

Love Always,


Daily Life: The Notebook Begins

29 May

Okay, so I am not exactly sure what happened to me last night. It might have been the three cups of caffeine that I drank (I haven’t had caffeine in at least a month) or it might have been pure excitement and inspiration but I went into crazy mode! For those of you who don’t know crazy mode, let me explain.

You know that feeling when one idea leads to another and then you have a list of things you want to get or do to make it happen. Then you have a few questions that might involve doing a little research. Then you have this plan that sounds fantastic and a time limit and budget. Then on top of that you get this completely random totally off subject idea about something else. Then start planning and fantasizing about that. Next thing you know your mind is going in a million directions and you want to do it all!! Now!!

That was my crazy mode. It was so crazy that I couldn’t get any sleep. So like everyone suggest when you have a million things on your mind and all you want to do is sleep.. I wrote them down in a notebook but somehow that suggestion that is sure to work doesn’t. I find myself laying in bed going over everything I wrote down again and again yet still awake.

After finally falling asleep at 1:30 last night I woke up at 5:30 a.m. ready to go! I got this burst of energy like it was time to get up and get it started. Me being the person who daydreams, plans my day, budgets, and does some serious thinking in the shower – I thought that might be the perfect way to start the day. Nope. I couldn’t wait to get out of the shower to start doing all my plans that I had already planned to do.

Then here I am. After y shower. 6:30 a.m. and I have no idea where to start. My brian is so clustered with so many ideas at one time I want to do it ALL! Another problem: I only have half of the things I need to start half these projects..

Looks like I’ll be crocheting and waiting for my mom to go shopping with me. I need a clear head to help me stay on track! Until then I am keeping this new notebook beside and I might not let it out of my sight incase I have any more crazy ideas!

This could be an interesting day!

Love Always,
