Suffering From Insomnia...

Lately, I have found myself being wide awake at all hours of the night. For example, last night, I was bright, chipper, and ready to start my day at 3 AM. So, I got up, cleaned out my closet, baked a pound cake for Michael, gave Winston a bath, swept off the back patio, and put a roast in the crockpot. Now some of you, like my mother, may be thinking that this night shift thing is causing this insomnia, and although I think it may contribute, I don't believe it is the main cause. So what is the main cause??? One word...MICHAEL!! You probably won't believe me when I say this, but this skinny white boy can rattle the windows during his sleep...thus causing my insomnia. He is also responsible for saying the most hilarious things during his sleep. Here are a couple incidents that I can remember...

Last night, while my precious angel was resting and snoring, I decided to try to arouse him, allow him to change positions, and hopefully he would stop long enough for me to fall back asleep. That didn't happen as evidenced my long list of accomplishments before dawn. Instead, he rolled over on top of me, looked me straight in the eyes, and stated, "It's OK, Babes...nobody's snoring, just go put the clothes in the dryer, and you will be just fine." He then rolled over and went right back to snoring. HA! What?

Once, I woke up I realized that something dark was floating above my head. If you know me well, you know that I am very blind, and all I could see was this dark blob. Little did I know that it was Michael's arm. He was asleep with his arm straight up in the air. Before I could arouse enough to realize that this fell into the "not normal" category, he dropped his arm and I took an elbow blow to the cheek...again resulting in a case of insomnia.
So, the next time you are awake before daylight...don't feel alone! I am probably up with you, baking a pound cake!
