Wake Up In The Morning Not Feeling Like P. Diddy, Not That I’m Bitter Or Anything

I like to think of myself as fairly laid back but there is a strain of high strung woman gene that runs through my family and every once in a while it rebels because I try to suppress it and I usually have trouble sleeping when the high strung woman gene gets antsy.

I’m a light sleeper, so usually if one of the girls wakes in the night (which thankfully is not very often now that they’re older) or one of the dogs gets up? I’m up.

The one time I’m guaranteed a fitful night’s sleep is when there are thunderstorms and, of course, it’s the season for stormy weather. Miss A could sleep through anything, but Miss C usually wakes up if it thunders in the night and Bailey, our neurotic senile 12 1/2 year old dog, reacts to severe weather by pacing and panting like she’s about to give birth to a 13-pound cat.

I guess what I’m trying to say is it looks like I’m going to be screwed in the sleep department this weekend.

Look at the forecast:

Anyone got an Ambien?

    Jennifer, I don’t think I’ve ever taken Unisom. Maybe I need to get some. Then again I might like it too much! I have taken Melatonin.

    Rebecca, we have two soccer games tomorrow! I’m thinking it’s a 50/50 chance that they are canceled. A friend from work is running in the marathon tomorrow. I’m hoping the weather isn’t as crazy as they have predicted.

    maybe you need to get Bailey some valium! As for the girls, well, I’ll be up, they can call me. The boys will sleep throught it all, unless it shakes Aaron’s window, then he will be up with me. Brian even told me to clean out the laundry room today. It was already on my to do list for the day. That is where we huddle.

    They predicted bad weather here too, but so far it’s been pretty light. I hope you are spared the craziness of it all.

    Hang in there and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

    When it rains, my poor old terrier comes and stares at me like, “Please can’t you make this stop?” Makes me want to get her some Ambien! (Hope all the weather lightens up for you.)
