TODAY'S LIST: WHY I AM TIRED

  1. I stay up too late, getting my fix of back episodes of "House."
  2. I stay up too late, reading blogs.
  3. I stay up too late, trying to find interesting things to eat, even though I said I wouldn't eat after 7:00 because Oprah says it's THE rule. Oprah doesn't know everything. Does she? I usually don't eat it, I just look for it. I DON'T EAT IT PAM, I PROMISE.
  4. I stay up too late, worrying about things like, is it spelled "to" or "too." The Grammar Nazi's should tell me so I can go to bed--after watching "House," of course.
  5. I'm taking YET another round of antibiotics.
  6. I'm worrying.
  7. I'm old.
  8. And perhaps moldy.
  9. I'm dying. Aren't we all? Don't panic. I'm pretty sure we are.
  10. I think I should blog every day and then when I can't I have the stupor's and who can go to bed with the stupors? I usually go to bed with Phil but maybe the stupors are more interesting and maybe they snore less.
  11. I have too much to do and not enough a) time b) ambition c) talent d) motivation e) energy--because I stay up to late.
  12. I think perhaps the Epstein Bar Syndrome has reared it's ugly head. Again. That would also explain the stupors.

The end. The bitter, total end of life as we know it, as only people who stay up too late can really understand.

Oh, llama, you are unbearably cute. The most brilliant people stay up too late. Seriously, it's the artist in us. And I laughed when I read about going to bed with stupors instead of Phil and them not snoring. And you do have talent, so there. And I would be happy too teach you about two and to and too. Haha. Just kidding. Oh, you're silly, and your blog is such a gift.

xo,

Tierney

Just found you!
Realy enjoy your blog!

I can relate. I wake us as tired in the morning as when I went to bed.

Going to bed is over-rated. I decided that this morning. At night you have the window open and dogs bark so you close it and then the other window is still open and the blinds are banging and the door is banging and your arms fall asleep and you have rotten dreams and you wake yourself up coughing because probably you don't drink enough water and your husband snores and doesn't hear the dog or the windows but wakes up and goes out in the middle of the night to bring in his seedlings from the greenhouse and that wakes you up even more. Plus he's wierd.

So I'm with you, you poor little crumb ball.

Yes... I agree with your post. However.. my mind goes wild at 4 in the morning when I can't go back to sleep. I call them the "Night Monsters" I think the must appear after 10:00 p.m. until morning.

I need a nap just reading all that...

Lynne, we truly are bosom friends. That's the kind of friends that Ann of Green Gables had. I'm such a poopy go to sleeper. That would be fine if I could sleep in, or if I weren't so useless the next day after having no sleep. My favorite thing that keeps me from not sleeping, is worrying about if I'm going to be able to sleep.

Annette said...

You have a knack for hitting on truths and making me laugh at the same time. Is knack a word? I may stay up all night worrying about that. I hope you're not getting sick again.

Shawn said...

Oh, my dear---I am up with you reading blogs and doing e-mails until at least 2:00 a.m. What the heck is wrong with me?

I am always tired, also----go figure.

Pam's Place said...

I grok it, Lynne. Maybe we should have a late nite conference here. Should we all subscribe to "Go to Meeting dot come" ? Since we're all away in the middle of the night anyway.

Karen Deborah said...

yep that is it and it's not a disease its menopause.
the stupors I can relate to that.

Pam said...

Oh the lists we could make with no provocation. Like, how to go to the movies with a friend!

Besides, sleep is just a bad habit.
