Guess what I got today...

Happy Sunday! It's 1:00 in the morning as I'm writing this. I know I know... I said the other day that I was going to work on the whole actually sleeping at night thing. I will! Starting right after this post. *wink* I have tried lots of times to just go to bed earlier but if I do it too much earlier at once I just can't sleep so it's pointless. I have to go to bed just a little earlier, an hour tops, each night until I'm back into a healthy schedule. So 1am (or 1:30 when I'm done posting?) in the morning is not really bad if you consider that last night I was up until 3:30am! So if I can get my body to fall asleep anywhere this side of 3am it will be a miracle. Plus I had caffiene today and I love my Dr. Pepper once or twice a week but I'm one of those people who can't even look at caffeine or I'm wired for a week.
So here is my goal;
Tonight (or rather this morning) to sleep by 2:30am.
Sunday night (monday morning?) to sleep by 1:30am.
Monday night (Tuesday morning?) to sleep by 12:30am.
Tuesday night I should be able to go to bed on the near side of midnight if all goes as planned! :D Woohoo! I really love to stay up late but I just don't have the boundless energy to do it anymore like when I was 17! Especially not with my dear children thinking it's grand fun to wake up at 5am. What are they thinking?! Morning people! :p They didn't get it from me, that's for sure. ;) I'll bet it's my mom's morning person genes. They skipped a generation or something because *I* sure didn't get any morning person genes!

So now you're sitting there wondering if I had a point to this post or was I planning on just rambling on about how I should go to bed but don't... Yeah my main goal was just to yap about my sleeping habits but now that I've sufficiently bored you I might be able to squeeze in something a little more interesting... Hmmm.... *thinking* What shall I talk about? ;)

Okay okay I can't hold it in anymore... I went to WalMart today! Okay well not today actually since it's 1:21am now which means it's technically Sunday, hence the "happy Sunday" comment. So that means it was technically yesterday we went to WalMart even though that was a few hours ago but that is neither here nor there so... *takes deep breath* I bought fabric "yesterday" (aka a few hours ago, Saturday, today that is technically not today, you get it...)!!!
Woohoo! I am going to make myself a simple skirt so I got some fabric and am all excited now. *big grin*
Okay I'm done now. I apologize for having wasted 10 minutes of your life reading this that you cannot get back, but I was just so happy over the prospect of brand new fabric that I couldn't contain myself. :D You see, I've been living off someone else's castoff fabric stash that was given to me of scraps and remnants for the last... oh... 10 years or so. It was wonderful generous of them and I have loved every scrap! But after 10 years, what little I have left is rotting now. :( So when I got new, fresh, picked out by me fabric today, I was kind of like a kid getting ice cream for the first time or something. Although I about fainted when I looked at the prices on the bolts of fabric and saw that most were about $4-6 per yard. *feeling a little fainty again* Is fainty a word? I don't think it is. Hmmm...
Anywayzies I'm going to go to sleep now so that I will wake up and then I get to make my pretty new skirt. And I will try to post pictures so stay tuned! *wink* Now that you're totally intrigued and can't resist.


  1. That is awesome and I cannot wait to see your skirt!

  2. Thanks! It's simple because I am not very good at sewing yet. I learned when I was like 11 but I don't consider myself good at it. I haven't done it much to GET good at it.


I love Comments! ♥ Please remember to mind your manners though. ;)
