Sleepless ramblings that started at 2am this morning…

So this must be the night I drive myself insane this week.

I thought I was doing better in the me vs things that go bump in the night arena. Granted, I have been staying up until like 3 every night this week watching tv until I pass out… Which helps. But not so much in the waking up early with the toddler.

I’m just jumpy tonight. Which I hate.

I was hoping to fall asleep before 2.. But alas it’s 2:08. Logically I know that the house is probably just creaking, since I have been keeping the heat lower than normal in an effort to not have a skyrocketing gas bill. I don’t hear all the creaks and pops that freak me out when the heat is on.

My feet are freezing… Maybe I should go turn it up a degree or two. Maybe that will help me sleep.

So I turned up the heat.
It’s now 4:16am.

My night thus far:
2:30 fell asleep with the lights on.
3:00 hubby called to say he was done working and going to bed.
4:00 woke up to pee.
4:06 dozed off, only to awaken suddenly after hearing imaginary noise.

Yea. I’m tired.

Somewhere between 6 and 6:30… Rudely awakened by a toddler wanting juice and Cheerios. I say rudely because I believe that she punched me or hit me. And then was climbing on me to try to wake me up. So much fun.

Finally I dragged my super tired butt downstairs to get the juice and Cheerios. Now spongebob is on the tv and I can only hope she falls back to sleep when she’s done eating. I doubt I will make it that long.

Well, it is not well into the afternoon. 3:20 to be exact.

I think I passed out again right after I delivered the juice and Cheerios to she who beckoned for them. At some point she curled up with me and went back to sleep.  I figured that would happen.

I finally got up and moving at about 11. She didn’t get up until noon. Which gave me a little time to pick up the living room and fold some towels.

I guess I should go tend to my laundry… I needed to wash the sheets since when my dear toddler woke up, she and my bed were covered in pee.  Seriously, she was soaked from her neck to her knees. I will never understand how that happens… other than I wasnt conscious enough to change her before I went back to sleep this morning.

I guess I’ve bored you enough with my ramblings for today…
