Who needs sleep?

Anyone else out there a total insomniac? I love the song Who Needs Sleep by barenaked ladies because I am a total insomniac so I can really turn up the song, and rock out to it at 3 a.m. 

I have been running on about ..maybe 12 hours of sleep for the entire week. Lets just say I was dreaming while awake. And finally I just had 5 wonderful hours of uninterrupted sleep followed by a day of napping, 1 hour after another. Yes. Napping all day long. 1 hour at a time. Okay. If your an insomniac you totally get how wonderful that can be.  Well, an afternoon of napping, actually anyone can appreciate that lol. Obviously everyone has been sleep deprived at some point so all can relate. However I just feel the need to vent, to share, to blog i suppose. 

So here is the thing with me and sleep. There has never been a happy medium for me. It has always been one extreme or the other. Either I do nothing but sleep, or I don't sleep at all. And when I say I don't sleep at all. I mean I average 1-2 hours a sleep a day. Or I'm on the flip side of that, and I can't keep my eyes open. During those times My forehead would already have hit the keys while typing this blog. LOL.  Have you ever shopped online in your sleep? LOL. oh yes I have. That's always a shocker especially when your on a tight budget. Sent a giberish email? god bless my close friends and family. They know me enough to know by now when the email they are reading goes from making sense to sudden gibberish that is the point when I fell asleep. 

As if the sleep issue isn't a bowl full of fun on it's own I also walk and talk in my sleep. I'm a great secret keeper, unless you catch me sleeping, then I can't be held accountable for what I might say.

I have been accused of from time to time making messes in the kitchen in the middle of the night. Someone might wake up and find containers of random food poured onto the counter and mixed together. For morning there was a container of breadcrumbs poured into a pile with a spoon in the center of them, and I have a vague memory of a dream about standing in the kitchen eating cheerios. That sorta thing happens from time to time.

Okay, so here is a laugh at myself story. So, it's easter. My mom is doing the fun spring decorating, making the house look all pretty, and she is also boiling eggs and decorating them. I'm not a huge fan of boiled eggs. . So. :: shakes head just thinking of it:: I'm standing in the kitchen talking to my mom, and I say to her. I had a dream last night that I was eating your hard boiled eggs, and that they were really dry.  So, she checks. All of her eggs are intact, none gone. It was only a dream!  .... a few days go by. And I go to take the trash in my bedroom out...when ..wait..what is that in my trash......a Styrofoam glitter and sequin and lace covered egg that my mom had been decorating the house with..and yes my blogger has a bite out of it.

I must go create!

So excited to see 22 followers! Almost half way to the giveaway! Already thinking about the next giveaway.

 Have a fantastic day! SWEET DREAMS!

I can relate I used to sleep walk when I was little and scare everyone! Even family that would stay with us from time to time. I know that there are sleep specialist that can help with it (I'd like to see you try to get up during a sleep study ;)) if you think you need to go that route. I have trouble falling asleep then its soooo hard to get up in the morning! Hope you got some sleep last night!

Wow! I'm not a good sleeper either, but not to your extent.

A few years ago my youngest daughter had a dream that she pulled her tooth out. She actually did pull a tooth out (it wasn't loose) and placed it on her windowsill. It wasn't until she saw the tooth the next morning that she remembered the dream. Freaked her out to say the least. Thank God it wasn't one of her permanent teeth!
