The other night I had terrible insomnia. The kind where I don’t do anything productive, I just stare at the tv and computer until I realize its 5AM…
This is bad on so many levels, but the most amusing one is the facebook overdose.
Yes, I am giving myself an intervention.
When you can’t sleep it feels sorta like being drugged and aware. Or drunk enough that things are off kilter. Like your perception on what is an appropriate comment. Or who you should chat with.
I think that Facebook is awesome and necessary in a lot of ways.
Thank Cheesits I am not on twitter… I could easily go without. I will be skimming updates, and reducing commenting.
I’ve noticed that these binges end with exhaustion, but a clearer head. A realization of what is more valuable to me. In that way it is a benefit.
So Sunday, after my 2 hours of sleep, I got up, avoided the computer, and put together 2 no sew fleece blankets for the boys. Hawley has had one since he was an infant that he received from a friend of mine. I started giving it to him when he would nurse and pull at my hair. The tassels took my hairs place, and he adores that blanket.
I thought if I got one with Star Wars on it, he might eventually let go of the tatty destroyed baby blanket. Probably not. Murphy’s balnket is a fleece and satin edged number from Little Giraffe. It has seen better days.
Both of the boys are into their new blankets. I have a new respect for how long it take to put them together and what a pain in the wrist they can be. But it doesn’t take a lot of thought and was perfect in my semi delirium.
I also got my two Lucky Jackson patterns prepped for stitching. This was a more creative effort.
It was fun, and I look forward to stitching them completely. I worked on them while watching How I Met Your Mother. Yes, I think Neil Patrick Harris as Barney Stinson is the redeeming element for this otherwise formula sitcom. But, it’s still fun catching up on episodes thanks to Netflix.
I don’t know how many times I will mention 365 Lucky Days, but it is the inspiration for two wedding gifts I will be working on for the summer. One of those weddings is for one of my readers, so I can’t tell you my ideas!
But, I will share the one for my cousin when I get it figured out.
I got to hang out with my Jessica.
I think that’s what I will call her from now on. We do not get much girl time, so we watched Twilight Saga: breaking Dawn pt 1, ate cinnamon rolls and drank a couple beers. Yes folks, “donuts and beer” and juvenile romance. Maybe that’s why I facebook binged.
i am working on this today, as well as lots of laundry.
I am doing a lot listening to Ani DiFranco also. Especially Not a Pretty Girl. I listened to that one a lot in college.
Happy Monday, President’s Day, no school. We are catching up on chores and hanging out as a family today. Enjoy!
