Tossing and Turning and can't sleep

This is crazy!   I woke up at 3:30 this morning.   It is no wonder I konk out on the couch at 9:30 every night.   The wee hours of this morning were thoughts of work!  I have taken today and tomorrow off to spend time with my daughter before she heads back to New England.   She and I and her sister are going out for a girl's day.   This will include Starbuck's (or similar) coffees, fabric shopping in Chestnut Hill, a cross stitch store in Limerick (a new one for me), lunch, giggles, laughter, fun and memories of a day spent with my girls.   My daughter in law may join us.   She has been fighting a cold for the last few days and will make a decision when she gets up and going this morning. 

So back to the work thoughts.......I finally stopped fighting it and rolled out of bed at 4:08 a.m.   The half hour prior had my thoughts turned to how I seem to be one of the few who seem to continue to work even on days off......no wonder I couldn't get back to sleep.  I had every intention of logging onto work to pound out a couple sets of minutes, send out meeting appointments for the next few weeks, etc., etc.  So me and my chenille robe and cup of coffee promptly logged onto the internet and SURFED!   I caught up on all my blog reading; I registered my new camera at the Canon site; I checked out the end of the year sales at some of the cross stitch online stores; I reviewed and cleared my hotmail inbox and have basically frittered away the last hour and a half.     It is what I call bubble gum for the brain.   Totally useless yet rewarding.    I hope to get a quick hour in between now and 7 and then will get ready for our shopping and fun.  Since I am not a reveler or party going on New Year's eve, the minutes can wait til then.............or not!


PS  Side three of my Petite Sampling Etui is completed!   On to side 4.

I can relate, Robin. I've been waking up between 2 and 4am for a couple of months now. By the time I get off work, I am just exausted.

Here's to both of us catching up on some sleep!

Hope you have a good time with your daughters.
