The children....

The children are sleeping all snug in their bed

while sounds of snoring was right next to my head.

I poked and I prodded my husband so dear

but it seems in mid sleep he can not feel or hear

So up from my bed I arose

wrapped in my blanket and bedtime clothes

I poured me some milk so that I might induce sleep

but alas I am a failure at counting those silly sheep.

I opened up the lap top with its glowing screen

and what before my wondering eyes was to be seen

You tube videos of cute little kittens

some had even lost their mittens

Facebook status updates were not to be found

it seems that no one is around.

So here I sit typing this nonsense thread

when really I should be sleeping in my bed.

original poem written by Thelma S...at 4:40 am when nothing makes sense anyway.

WOW!!! That's GREAT!!! You're talented!!!!

Don't feel bad, I was up at 4:15, and didn't really go back to sleep. No matter how hard I tried. It's rare I get more than 4-5hours. If I sleep 6 straight through, I'm jumping for joy. lol

That's great!


I'm sorry you didn't get enough sleep though. I got woken up at 4 the other day, and it was long day.

Thanks.  I love writing.......sometimes it just happens and I go with it. LOL

I haven't slept past 4 hours in so long I think I'd faint if I got more. LOL

Haha love it! The baby was up every 30-60 minutes from midnight until 8:30 when I finally decided it was futile to try to get him back to sleep. I need coffee.

I need a coffee IV this morning. LOL. Dh's snoring is out of control. LOL. I think it is due to allergies. Pollen has him messed up. I put my middle dd in bed with her sister and moved into her bed last night...LOL. I was desperate.
