Counting Sheep

Funny thing right now, I am very tired and I should be sleeping, but I just can't. It's 11:30 and I've only been trying for about 40 minutes, but I can tell it's going to be one of those nights when sleep is going to take a few hours to come. Mike's up doing some work so I thought I'd just come keep him company. Pretty soon Brooklynn is going to wake up and need to eat again, so I should be catching up on my zzz's but no can do. I did cheat and take a sleeping pill, but that will also take awhile to kick in. My sweet husband can sleep anytime, any where, with any noise. I will wake up to a pin drop. Darn him. It just gets so frustrating. If I wake up with the kids in the middle of the night, you can trust I am wide awake and it will take me a good while to go to sleep. If I get Mike up to take care of the kids he does it in his sleep. In the morning I will thank him for taking care of the boys, and he will respond, "I did? I don't remember that." It's so funny. Sometime I talk him to sleep. Right now he is probably on his 3rd Dr. Pepper of the night and guess who will be asleep sooner tonight? Oh well I am not too bitter. Got any good advice on how you fall asleep clue me in.

Trip to Vegas

Mine and Michael's anniversary was on Sunday. We celebrated six fun filled years. He surprised me with Phantom of the Opera tickets. We went to Vegas and watched it at the Venetian. It was wonderful! The tickets were expensive, we sat front and center, but it was well worth the cost. I loved it! The acting and singing was awesome, the special effects unbelievable and I could go on. I really felt like I was in the real theater. I highly recommend it. I obviously enjoyed myself.
Thanks Honey, I love you (more).

Hardy Har Har

I thought of a fun idea. For some strange reason I love pirate jokes. With Halloween coming up I thought it would be a great time for everyone to share any funny pirate jokes they know. Let's see if there are any I haven't heard. Did you know that September 19th was talk like a Pirate Day. Wish I would have known that earlier. Oh well.

Iron County Fair

We went to the fair, my kids loved it, Avani not so much. We tried putting her on a lot of things, but it always resulted in screaming tears and usually a short ride. To bad we didn't figure that out before we bought her tickets.

The other day I was doing the laundry and Adam came running up stairs. He said, "Brooklynn is crying." I asked him if he could make her happy. He said he could and went to her aid. Two minutes later he said, "Mom, come see I turned Brooklynn into a transformer, and she's so cool." I was worried and ran downstairs, imagining many scary scenarios that he had likely created. Luckily she wasn't harmed and was actually still happy.
