Sleepless in Mobile

I am writing this blog at midnight...I can't go to sleep!!! Ugghh...I had a diet coke today and now I can't fall asleep! After being tired most the day, the caffeine needs to affect me now. I decided I would complain about it on my blog, well, because I don't have anyone to prod awake to keep me company (Kit is gone again for training). I'm just kidding-I don't make Kit stay awake if I can't sleep. He's usually the one battling insomnia and complaining about how hot I make the bed. It is funny how I slept 20 years without a body next to me...well, not counting poor little Whit who had to share her bed with me when I moved home before getting married (so sorry about the uncomfortable cuddlings) and now it is always hard to fall asleep without my husband's form next to me in bed. Hmmm...the problem is I know I have to be awake at 6:30 to take care of getting Jos off to school...Here's hoping playing on the internet and being a blogger-stalker for an hour will help lull me to sleep.

I never fall asleep early when Brian is gone. I usually stay up and watch mindless TV shows and end up tired the next day. Hope you got some sleep!

P.S. Our huge caterpillar friend decided to make himself a cocoon, so he's still sitting on our kitchen counter, and we're waiting patiently for a pretty butterfly!

Oh no! Poor Lib! It's funny and true! When Phillip's not here I have a hard time falling asleep...I'm not sure what makes it so darn difficult. I guess familarity. I hope things get better. I love you!

Ahhh! While I was posting a comment Ella decided to help herself to Henry's breakfast. Icky!! I guess you can count yourself lucky that while you had insomnia your boys were tucked quietly in bed...not chowing down on some dog food. ;S

I guess I am weird because I love it when I get the bed all to myself. I also love staying up late, but know that I will regret it the next day. Too bad last night I dragged myself to bed at 11or we could have had a late night "chat". Hope you weren't too tire this morning!

So true! The combination of hubby being gone and a big ol' caffeinated drink always keeps me up to all hours. As much as I love using the unexpected time for computer stuff, I usually find it keeps me awake rather than gets me tired. I recommend reading in a dim room, works like a charm.

I personally enjoy having the bed all to myself. But it is nice when I know that Nate's over there on the other side of our giant bed. However, I must admit that when I have caffeine too late in the day, I'm up stalking blogs into the night as well:)

I'm sorry that you can't sleep. I used to really like sleeping - and now I think of all the things that I need to get done and wish that sleeping was optional.

Perhaps drink diet coke for breakfast? By the way, I recently tried the diet cherry coke - TASTY!

Lib I totally understand! I'm up until at least 11 or midnight every night trying to get caught up on things myself which only makes trying to fall asleep worse. And it is always worse when your hubby isn't in bed with you. I'm glad you posted it on your blog because it makes me feel a bit more normal!

I know what you mean too, unfortunately, and it does make it harder when you have children that you have to get ready for school the next day.
When Mike use to work the night shifts, it was hard for me to fall asleep (I was such a scaredy cat). I would put on QVC, just to hear the talking. But the best thing that always puts me to sleep when it is late at night(I know this sounds bad, but it is true) is reading the scriptures.
It is nice to have blogs though to help us on those long sleepless nights.
