    It's 2:25 Am

    Yes, it's 2:25 am where I live and tomorrow I'll have to get up at 7:30 and drive to school to get my a-level-results. I wonder what they'll think when I'm sleeping when I'm supposed to come to the front. Like Susanna in Girl, Interrupted. Luckily I have a girlfriend who'll have...

    But I can't, next door is having a huge party

    and its so loud. I know I sound so old but I fought for four hours of screaming kids to get to bed and I'm so tired. My husband is at a Batchelor party and he will be no help tomarrow so. 😄 I will be delirious.

    Should Be, But Oh Well.

    It's Friday night. I don't have to wake up tomorrow. And I've got beer (jeez, I'm such an alci! Drinking alone. I ought to be ashamed!) and I've got semi-decent tv. No reason to go to sleep any time soon. It's 3:40 at the moment =P Shouldn't be up too late, though =P

    I keep staying up late

    because I don't want it to be tomorrow. It's a futile firm of denial and I wish I could snap out of it.

    Between my two children, Paris and London, I should be sleeping but I'm a night owl.  There's something about the night and its whispers that enthrall me.

    ...but I don't want to.

    Bedtime comes too early in my opinion. I think at my age, I shouldn't be told when I should go to bed. There is just so much fun to be had! I don't want to miss anything. I'm probably going to be so tired at school tomorrow. Oh well! I could probably work on the homework I never...

    I can never really sleep:/ I usually have to

    take sleeping pills to sleep but i cant find the bottle of sleeping pills. So I am just awake thinking about the day I had with my boyfriend who is also my best friend. I wish I was sleeping in his arms. I always sleep best by him:/

    When you have a super cute dream and you clearly remember everything that happened and it just puts you in a great mood for the rest of the day. UGH. This is why I love sleeping.
