The longest of Nights

Last night, right before I was going to hit the hay. Ben woke up,(2:30am) well, when Ben wakes up it is normally 5 hours before he will sleep again. This is always the way, if he falls asleep in the car at supper time, it's 10 or 11 before he can sleep again. This is pretty much the rule with him. Well, last night was no exception. Woke up at 2:30, back to sleep at 6:30 (ok, only 4 hours but still) And then up again at 9:30. Too much for me, … [Read more...]

A day off, but not really

I was so happy to wake up today and know that I didn't have to go to work. On average I get one day off a week now, and it is really affecting me. I can't seem to get anything done.

Sometimes I wish I didn’t have a phone…contest continues

At 9am my phone starts. Ring, Ring, Ring..."Hello" and all I hear on the other end is emptiness. Does this ever happen to you? Of course it does. If I was to guess, our house probably gets at least 10 calls from Nobody. Well, to me it is nobody, because if I don't hear someone return my hello, I hang up. The odd time I'll hang around, wait the 15 to 20 seconds for the recording to start, just to find out who it is...and usually, I have just won a … [Read more...]
