12-13 Hours of Sleep Just Don't Cut It Anymore

If I don't get at least 12 or 13 hours of sleep, there is no sense of trying to get me out of bed. For the last week, I have been sleeping at least 13 hours. That means, if I want to *try* and make it to my aqua class tomorrow morning at 10:35 am, then I must go to bed around 8 or 9pm tonight, but that is soooo not going to happen, as I only got up today just after noon, and there is no way I'll be able to fall asleep that early tonight. I even went to bed early last night - at 11pm, and there was just no waking me up, and there is no point in setting an alarm anymore.

I am struggling to find a gift for my 4 year old nephew's birthday. He's not 4 yet, but he'll be 4 in November. We're going to visit for the weekend in 3 weeks, and attend his birthday party, but I just can't seem to find anything for him. I did pick up a Star Wars Mr. Potato Head, just cuz I thought it was cute, but I don't know if he'd be into it. Worse comes to worse, I'll give it to my Star Wars Obsessed hubby.

Today, I didn't get much done, except my eyebrows waxed (boy did that feel good afterwards). I feel like a whole new person now - I guess it uplifted my spirits a little bit. What else? I also did an errand for my father, and then did some retail therapy in the area that I was in. I bought a few things for Sean, even though I'm having 2 baby showers in the next week and a half, I just saw a few things that I wanted to get him, and well, if I end up getting similar, I have the bill, and it's returnable. So I'm not worried. I also did a little secret pal shopping, and I can't wait to send her out package number 1! I just need to find the right size box to ship it in, so that it can all go into one shipment, and not in two seperate boxes.

Tomorrow is Wednesday, and I will draw the lucky winner's name for my blogaversary draw! Everyone who left comments on my blog's birthday, their names will go into a jar, and someone will be a lucky winner!!! Woohoo!

I also did some baby shower thank you gift shopping today, I needed a few gifts for those hosting and donating their house or their time for my baby showers. All the gifts were easy to pick out - I don't know why it's so hard to shop for men - women are just sooo easy to shop for! Even 4 year old nephew's are hard to shop for (it was easier when he was younger!!)

Anyhow, I am going to get a few chores done, and then watch Nip/Tuck at 10pm, and then go to bed. I want to try and make deep end aqua tomorrow morning.

Oh enjoy that sleep now - because soon enough you'll be up peeing every two hours and then get stuck looking up at the ceiling counting the light marks made from the light outside...

Trust me on this one! I was a 10+ hour girl... if I didn't sleep a good 10+ hours STRAIGHT I was as grumpy as can be... now I celebrate making it more than two hours without having to get out of bed to visit the old bathroom!

I am jealous so please sleep for me!
