Sleepless in Pensacola....

sleepless Pictures, Images and Photos

....and there ain't nothin' romantic about it!!! ha! Hubby started working an extremely awkward shift this week so he doesn't get home until about 1:30am. I'm refusing to complain about this one bit because after so many deployments i'm beyond thankful that he comes home at all! However, it doesn't mean i like it! I don't sleep well when he isn't home. Why is it that every little noise is SOOOO much louder when he's not there??? So last night i watched my dvr'ed Biggest Loser (oh my goodness is anyone else watching this??), read some of my book and finally started to get sleepy around 11:15 so i turned of the lamp and layed there. And layed there. Again, why is it that i couldn't keep my eyes open when i was distracted but turn the light off and lay there trying to go to sleep and it ain't happenin'?!? Finally i remember looking at the clock and it said 11:43 and then i wake up to Colby in our room scared because "something was pulling him in his bed". What? It was 12. Awesome 17 minute nap that was. Off to pray with Colby and try to get him settled again. Back in bed at 12:20 to start the whole laying there trying to get to sleep again routine. 1:15am and the Hubs walks in the door. Alarm system (which is great most of the time but not last night!) does its thing and it goes a little something like this....BEEP BEEP BEEP FRONT DOOR. Like really loud. Normally not an issue because i close the laundry room door before going to bed so that it won't wake the boys. Forgot to close the door. Brayden wakes up calling for Daddy. Wonderful. Go get Brayden settled back down while hubby is getting ready for bed. 1:30 i finally fall back into bed and have hubs check to make sure alarm is set for 5:45. It was close to 2 before i fell asleep. I am SOOO TIRED! But excited because i think we are going to Lowe's when hubby wakes up to get mulch and stuff for the front landscaping that looks so pitiful!! Here's to getting a good night's sleep tonight!!

ps...i totally look that awesome when i'm laying in bed sleepless! yeah..i really do! ;)

Your night sounds about like mine...be sure to read about it on my post for today! I'm exhausted and will definitely be taking a nap later or I'm not going to make it! May we both sleep better tonight! :)

Oh, and I look exactly like that woman when I go to bed at night, too! My hubby is one lucky man...yeah, right! LOL!

Sorry that you had a rough night. I have had plenty of those so I totally sympathize.

The Biggest Loser was great last night. I was so glad that Joelle was voted off. She just really had a bad attitude. Very sad that she allowed this to mess up her friendship with Carla. Oh well....
