Late Night Trying to Kick the Hamster Off the Wheel

I start a new job in the morning.  It’s a job, there’s work, but I *get* to work in a quilt fabric shop.  I’m really excited.  It’s like a candy shop for any quilter.  I literally sigh every time I walk in the shop I just love it that much.  So I’m sitting here at almost 2 o’clock in the morning with this hampster running around inside my head.  You know the one.  Thoughts about this and that and the other going around and around over and over again constantly turning this way and that way keeping you awake until you give up on sleep and crawl back out of bed and stumble into the livingroom to boot up your computer and log on to Facebook and type a blog post in an effort to exhaust the hampster who seems to thinks it’s really COOOL to be up at this time of night.  (Thanks for breathing for me.) I typed up a note on Facebook (another one) that’s little lists of 3 things about me.  …

Oh… This is SO. Not. Good.

  I like to window shop.  a lot. Sometimes it keeps me out of trouble.  I really try not to wish for things I don’t have, simply to see what’s pretty.  I had stayed away from even looking at one store online for a long time.  I’m not sure why… maybe subconsciously I knew.  I just knew that I would love the store.  But I looked.  And I do.  I’m in such trouble…. I went to Pottery Barn.

I’m up! I’m Up! Nooooooo…..

I really should be in bed.  I would be.  If I wasn’t just getting mad at myself for not being able to fall asleep.  Again.  It happens on a fairly regular basis.  I’m told that as you get older it’s something that just sort of evolves.  Great.  Ducky.  I miss sleep… why do I suddenly have Bare Naked Ladies running through my head?  Who needs sleep?  Me!!!  I need sleep.  I get cranky when I don’t get enough sleep.  Ok.. I try not to be cranky.  I don’t have time to be cranky.  I won’t be.  Thank heavens I don’t have to be up at the crack of dawn tomorrow, or the next day or the next.  I’m REALLY grateful for that.  REALLY.  Maybe I’m finally tired….
