Now I lay me down to sleep...and think of eleventy billion unrelated items

Some nights I screw myself by not falling asleep when I'm initially really tired. Wednesday night that was right around 9. In bed at 11:30, my brain was still active. Like this:

I should try the L'Oreal bronzing lotion, Jergens isn't cutting it.
Everybody needs a bosom for a pillow, everybody needs a bosom
I don't even like that song.
The Phillies won.
The rain sounds nice. I should just listen.
Geege, lay down. (said out loud)
Gus, lay down. (said out loud)
Everyone lay down! (said out loud)
Did I leave MFD water? Yes.
Everybody needs a bosom for a pillow
How does the rest of that song go?
New library books.
I should replant the day lilies Hugo took out.
I hate yard work.
Tomorrow should be Friday.
Where should I put the clothes hanger in the yard?
I cannot wait to have that up, fresh sheets...
CSI was creepy.
Don't think about creepy things.
Happy things happy things.
Next time I buy bath towels I'm buying bright yellow.
It would be cool to have one of those old school mini recorders.
Target trip. Don't think about t-shirts.
Do I have Borax on my list? (lean over and check list on phone, add Borax)
Should I just get up and read?
I wish all the rugs in this house were patterned. No chevron. I'm sick of chevron.
This nail polish has stayed on really well.
I could use this as a blog post tomorrow.

And so I did. Happy Little Friday.

Linking up for Thursday Thoughts.

  1. Aaaahhh! You have a committee too! (I have that e-book, by the way)

    I recommend giving them ice cream cones... if that doesn't quiet them, try peanut butter. Seriously, picture them trying to talk with peanut butter in their mouths. (They prefer ice cream, so sometimes that works because it makes them happy. When they are relentless, go directly to the peanut butter. And not the cheap shit... make it Jif, or Haagen Das)

  2. OMG...ha ha ha I do the same thing. I was about to fall asleep on the sofa at 9:30 last night so I went upstairs to bed. At one point around 10:30, I was thinking:
    * I wonder if my lives have reloaded on Candy Crush? No...don't look. Chris will get mad because he just cut the light off.
    Two peas, I tell ya....wish we lived closer!
    Happy Lil' Friday!! Just one more day!

  3. This is hilarious because this was ME last Thursday night. And why I only got 2.5 hours of sleep! I hate it when I can't shut my brain off. Hopefully tonight will be better for you!!! Love you!

  4. Lol! When I put my head on the pillow I'm out w/in a few minutes. But I often and ready for bed at 9 and will stay up on my laptop reading blogs and goofing off and before I know it I have a 2nd wind and stay up for 2 more hours. Hate that!

  5. LOL, this is me pretty much every night. Last night it was "OK, gonna try the OCM. Wait, do I really want to put oil ON MY FACE??? Matzo Ball, STOP clawing. Matzo Ball, STOP! Oil? On my face? I hope the rain isn't getting inside. Maybe I should close the window. Dont feel like getting up. I have to pee. GOMI!"

  6. Been there...done that! The worst thing for me is when I go to check something on my phone because I thought of something I need to make a list for...and then I just keep playing on it. Check Twitter, when I run out of new tweets I check Facebook. Run out of Facebook feeds, make my move in Words with Friends, then play some mind numbing game for 20 minutes.

  7. I want that go the F to sleep book so bad, lol. dang it for having kids that are literate!

  8. hahaha i HATE when that happens! it's the worst. csi IS creepy.

  9. I have those nights when, as soon as I get horizontal, it's thinky time! You can use my bosom for a pillow if you'd like. It's large.

  10. I totally do the same. My thought process starts out at something stupid and quickly devolves into getting fired up at something (often something my husband did or didn't do). Yesterday it was a quick downward spiral from thinking about what we were going to do this weekend to accusing my husband of never making the bed.

  11. Ugh, those nights are the worst!! That's awesome you get to hang a clothes hanger in your yard, though!! I saw one on a t.v. show the other day and now I want one. Except our clothes would never dry because it rains 364.5 days a year.

  12. And I thought my sleep situation was because of my age! Now you girls have it. You have Life in the Fast Lane all the time. I did run around like a nut for 35 yrs and it made me sleep like SOME babies(you never slept, Steph-as a baby. I love the deep sleep, but it eludes me, too. However, it did sound like you were kind of productive sleep-thinking!
    A good, deep sleep is more important than we ever thought!#PRICELESS Carpe diem, everyone.
    love your MOMMA

  13. You kill me!!!!! And I have this book! No lie. Got it as a gag gift annnnnnnd my oldest found it and read it without me knowing!! I thought I was gonna die!!

  14. I do this too!! Drives me NUTS! Also- try the Estee Lauder (spell?) tanning lotion BEST in the business and sooo worth the extra spend.. i've done jergens etc and well... go Estee Lauder I swear by it these days of white legs!

  15. I am the same way. I'm a weirdo and actually keep a notebook by my bed because only when I try to sleep do I come up with awesome ideas, or realize I totally forgot something! Haha

    Tomorrow is friday!

  16. as soon as i crawl into bed, i'm pretty much out like a 930pm. how sad!

  17. @Mare, I believe our Committees would get along!

    @Shelby. Thank you kindly, ma'am.

    @Laurie thank you for introducing Lil' Friday to me, I will say it every Thursday for eternity.

    @Mother, I can usually sleep most nights, but some nights it doesn't turn off.

  18. This was hilarious! I do the same thing.

  19. And now I am desperately trying to think of that song. So that's what I'll be doing tonight when I can't sleep.

  20. This is so funny. I always say that I can't turn my brain off. And yes, CSI is creepy. (not as creepy as Criminal Minds though)

  21. i swear you get into my brain, and then post the shit before i have time to. :)

  22. Hahaha, I do the same thing. Then I imagine Morgan Freeman's voice telling me to go the fuck to sleep and it usually works.

  23. Hahah! I love this! I usually read until I can't keep my eyes open, turn off the light and pass out. If I didn't I'd have to bring out a notebook and pen to keep track of all my thoughts and to-dos.

    And thanks. Now "Brimful of Asha" is in my head.
