okay so i am an insomniac. i have been for years, decades even. sleep is one of my most favorite things to do—except when i’m supposed to be doing so just like RIGHT now. i was almost asleep earlier and then damn it i started playing with the stupid blogshares game and was wide the freak awake until now when i am finally yawning. i have ambien and i COULD take it on a more regular basis. however, if i don’t take it by midnight it’s useless for me because i literally will not be functioning until eight hours later. and truth be told i am unlikely to even be awake for at least eight hours. one of these days i’m going to bite the bullet and after i hear from Roaming Soldier i’m just going to bed. maybe tomorrow.
on to other news. today was a typical day out with mommy. ninety minutes at the doctor, ten minutes in hobby lobby for me, ninety minutes at the nail salon, thirty minutes total for me at wal-mart (really for her) and then best buy. i got back to get her and she was still not ready. i went into david’s bridal then and then to a dollar store before returning to find out that while her nails were almost done she just HAD to get her eyebrows waxed and then acted like a big baby when the woman was doing it. ohh and then since we’re out well lets go to red lobster as she wants some shrimp. it was a bit of a mixed blessing that a client kept calling because then it dawned on my mother i might be tired. we packed up what was left and came home. ummmm did i mention that this is normally my day off? did i mention i would have been in the bed half asleep had i not been playing taxi driver? did i mention at all that i really really really don’t like this situation at all? okay just checking.
however, i can say i was happy and a bit stunned actually that i got my order from the mothership today. yep that order that i placed yesterday and put a rush on got here today. now they said within five working days so i wasn’t expecting it till next week. but as it did i got to journey over to hobby lobby to get the numbers and letters for my sash which by the way is JUST PERFECT. i’m very glad that i didn’t go through ebay to get these things as they all fit and look great and are from the inspiration lol for the cookie peddling stories. and the only sashes i were seeing were very old and nearly covered. this way i can earn whatever patches RS thinks are appropriate ROFL whenever the cookie peddling ensemble is in play. He may be coming home soon and i will be SO tickled if that is the case. i’ll keep you posted. okay i think i should at least attempt to go to bed now.

Would Red mind slinging this girl a box of thin mints please? And yes, those yummy Shortbread cookies. *laughs*
Hope your RS comes home to do more than buy a box of cookies dearest Red.
I had insomnia for years until I stopped having caffiene after lunch. Apparently caffiene takes 8 hours to cycle out. All the tricks I have tried over the years didn’t work nearly as well as cutting out soda and tea.
I also just wanted to say that the girl scout sash is an awesome idea for a submissive and I am so stealing that for my real life and my fiction. Really, you should get an Inspiration Badge 🙂
sorry callie cookie sales are over for this year lol. all cookies in possession well must be used for RS lol.
shon i can see how caffiene would keep someone up but i don’t drink coffee or tea ever and rarely have sodas. if i could work nights i wouldn’t be an insomniac lol as i just function better after the hustle and bustle of everyone else’s day is over. i stop eating well before bed and save the tv–which disturbs me mightily if it’s not on–there aren’t any external factors keeping me up. as for the sash, feel free to steal just give me a copy or let me know how things worked out.
At least, your insomnia allows you to give us news… 😉 Mine is not like that… but, luckily, very rare…;-)
When it happens, I can stay up for hours, doing nothing else than waiting… wainting… often in panic…
Wish you’ll sleep fine later…;-)
i think i’ll sleep fine tonight, lovely chat with RS before the sun went down and i’m still smiling lol. life is good even if i can’t manage a simple sleepy moment.
