Rise and blog

It's 2:30 a.m. Do you know where your children are? I know where mine are, they're sleeping.
Something I would like to be doing right about now.
For the second night in a row Kid 1 has inadvertently woken me up as she was preparing to go to bed.
That was a little over an hour ago. She's still on college time.
She misses college, I know. Heck, so do I. (Well, not really, but I thought it would sound funny there.)

I'm not happy because our alarm goes off at 5:15 a.m. and the only thing I can think about is how the heck am I going to function later today?

As I was lying awake, my mind started wandering. So I decided to "rise and blog."
Wonder if I will be able to "rise and shine" at the appropriate time.

i do that sometimes, then i can go back to sleep after (if i am lucky)!! sleep or not sleeping is a strange thing if you think about it. the dr. told me last year i had depression and that is why i couldn't sleep. i took meds for awhile and now it is better. hope you sleep soon my friend! i surely do...

smiles, bee

Shake, shake, shake...are you awake? At least you used your time wisely;~)

Patti, Patti, Patti . . . get some sleep!

Patti said...

empress bee: thanks for the sleep wishes

Lynn: You're right, I did use that extra time wisely.

Sarah: but when?

I try and tell mine that here in Straight World we have days and nights and nights are for sleeping. It doesn't do me any good either.

I thought I stayed up late in college, too, but I have nothing on what my kids do, apparently as a matter of routine. It's a constant irritation.

I wake up a lot as well and sit there thinking thinking thinking.

Hope you're holding up!

Patti said...

Curmudgeon: Nice to commiserate, isn't it? I don't remember staying up that late in the 70s either.

Sari: thanks for the nice thoughts
But if I wore ear plugs I wouldn't be able to hear the burglars. Not that we have anything valuable!

I wasn't going to mention last night's insomnia marathon but, since you did, so will I. I spent several hours thinking I should get up and blog but I kept hoping my eyes would suddenly slam shut...yea, right!

It must be nice to keep such late hours and not suffer...let's go ask Kid 1 how she does it!

joan: I guess things are different when you are 18.
