Eyes Wide Open

You've spent an entire week feeling tired and worn out.  Most nights you crawl into bed way too late and wake up way too early.  Then it happens.  Right there waiting for you is an early to bed evening where visions of soft warm sleepy moments lay.  Babies are sleeping soundly (beside you) and the house is still and quiet.  The duvet feels like it should and all in well in the world.

Then at 2:43 AM your eyes spring open for no apparent reason.  Just like that this night of sleepy bliss has turned into another late night...mare.  I hate when that happens.  I lay there praying (no really I am praying) that I would go back to sleep.  Eyes still wide open.  Then I move on to other prayers about my children, marriage, my friends marriages, doctors, world peace, meals in the making, TMZ... whatever I can come up with.  Eye lids still apart.  I figure I might as well make some use of this "extra" time.  Here are some things to do when your eyes won't do what they should:

1. Go on facebook  a laundry folding spree (Yippeeee! not.)
2. Clean out your fridge (that blondie feels so much better in your tummy) oven
3. Get back to your blog that you have neglected for (almost) months!
4. Watch YouTube  your baby sleep with ease (sooo jealous!)
5. Goggle the Ministry of Transportation because you need to get that renewal sticker before you get a nother  ticket!

I hope your late-night-early-morning was as productive as mine!

What do you do with your "extra time"?

Good to "see" you active in bloggy land again! I missed you! (((hugs))) I've had those mornings when I've woken up for NO reason and couldn't go back to sleep! Journaling helped but a surefire way to get back to sleep is to read the Bible and/or start praying. Sounds terrible, but it's the truth!
