Day #73 and I'm Awake

LAST CHANCE to enter the GIVEAWAY ends today at Noon CST.

Some would say that's a good be awake.  Just not at 3am!  Why is it I can't sleep?  This is the second night in three days I have been awake before 5am.  Friday night was the worst, I fell asleep before 8pm...BIG MISTAKE!  I was woke up by Hubby coming to bed at 11:30pm.  I tried to go back to sleep, not happening.  So by 1am I just got up, watched a few episodes of Army Wives Season 1 on Netflix, and finally fell back asleep on the couch around 6:30am.   Second mistake was sleeping on the couch!  Between loud children and the whiny dog I was awake again at 8:30am.  This morning I woke up at 2am.  Again I tried to go back to sleep to no avail.  I've been searching the web, reading mindless gossip, and watching the clock...what has my life come to?  (SIGH) 

This is what I have come up with regards to life and sleep.  Each  stage of your life has a different sleep cycle.  When you are a kid you need a lot of sleep because your body is growing.  When you become a teenager the goal is to see how little sleep you can get and still function.  When you become a parent, sleep is no longer an option.  First they don't sleep through the night, then someone has a bad dream and wants to sleep with you, or you're cleaning vomit because someone didn't quite make it to the bathroom.  One would think it gets better as your children get older, but for some reason it doesn't.  Then the worry sets in.  They are out with friends, on a date, or driving home from work.  I never really understood why my Mom made us (older sister, younger brother) call when we got to where we were going until I became a parent.  I guess the saying is true, "Guess I'll sleep when I'm dead!"
