What are You Doing at 3am?

My husband and I are insomniacs. We have the same problem if we wake up to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night, we can't go back to sleep. ( I am pregnant so I have a reason to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night, but WTH is with E's tiny bladder?)
Then our minds wander to all the problems and concerns we have and forget sleeping. So we talk or make fun of terrible infomercials on in the middle of the night*.
If I know he is awake I will wake up to talk to him or he will just get out of bed at 3am and stay up.
Of course by the time we fall back asleep it is almost time for L, our little rooster, to wake up. He is up by 6:30 every day!
So we are both very tired every day now. E doesn't nap and I really never nap, because I just wake up crabby and in a foul mood.

Here I am at 1:30pm exhausted and waiting for bedtime.

* Except the Jack Lalanne, the godfather of fitness, juicer informercial. Oh, how I wish I had $100 right now to buy this juicer. You an jsut put a whole apple in! Peel and all!
It promises energy and delicious possibilities! I need energy and endless delicious possibilities!


  1. What am I doing at 3am? Usually surfing the web for porn, playing Playstation 2, watching DVD's or reading. I typically go to bed around 4 or so.

  2. sleeping, peeing or rolling from side to side.

    I try to go to the bathroom once in the night, if humanly possible. I refuse to wake myself up more than I have to.

    The rolling over part is the worst! Repositioning pillows, etc. blah.

  3. One of my friends ordered one of the Jack Lalane juicers off of ebay. I don't know what he paid, but I know he got a good deal and he absolutely loves his juicer.

    I fully know that stress. I get it all the time... i usually give in and just come downstairs, make some coffee and get online.
    I know of the juicer you speak of, I must have one as well. ;)
