I'll sleep in when I'm old

So my throat is a little sore. I'm tired. I need to stop going to bed at midnight. It just doesn't work when you can't sleep in until ten. Yeah, I like to have ten hours of sleep. Well, nine is okay too. Eight has never been enough for me. I go with the theory that everyone needs a different amount of sleep; and this is just me. Or it could be that I'm lazy. I'm not certain. Though I have read that the more sleep you get per night on average the longer you live.

Oh, do you want to hear something horrible? This was the thought that just popped unbidden into my head: "How wonderful it will be to be elderly and to get to sleep in again! And the longer I live, the more time I'll have to sleep in!" Wow, apparently I'm looking forward to being elderly. That's what children do to you, apparently. And apparently I really really like sleeping in (more than I thought!)

Hopefully some time before then I'll get to sleep in (I'd better!!). Though, as I recall, teenagers like to sleep in. Why, when I was a teenager I would go to bed at midnight on Friday and not roll out of bed until 2pm on Saturday. Somehow my parents tolerated this sort of behavior.

Trust me, I won't tolerate any such nonsense from my children. They're going to be up at nine on weekends, at the latest, to do chores (so that mommy can sleep in).

The last pic I'm laughing about not stepping in dog doo.

My sister-in-law: "Watch out for dog doo. Kate watch out for dog doo. Don't let the babies step in dog doo. Oh, there's some dog doo."

I feel a compulsion to explain the bemused expression on my face. Apparently it's my "don't step in dog doo" expression.


  1. You are truly such a nice, sweet person. It just makes me want to know you. hahahah.

    I love all of your posts!!
    This one in particular made me laugh!
    I can't wait to be where you are in life-with a new house/husband/baby.

    I mean, I love being 17, don't get me wrong. I love sleeping in until 2pm (:P), but I'm looking forward to the future. Really.

    Love that skirt-amazzzzing.

    Love always,

  2. I'm so glad I found your blog. You're ever so amusing.

    Sleep is best, best friend forever. FOREVER.

  3. I should be sleeping by now! it is 2:30 am!
    I really enjoy reading your posts! :)

  4. I love your posts too! Great skirt!! :D

  5. I'm still awake! It's 12:05!....but I'm going to sleep in....aahhh, teenagers :)

  6. I honestly think that's why I might not want children. I value my sleep too much. My mom never let me sleep in even on weekends, so now I sleep in just about everyday and I LOVE it!

  7. I'm so with you on the whole sleeping thing. I can sleep anywhere and for hours and hours and hours. Looks like we're gonna live till we're 200 at least.
    Absolutely adore what you've done to that skirt, it's fabulous (as is anything you wear).
    Have a fab weekend.

  8. you have such a pretty smile! love the leather skirt and this outfit is very edgy and cool!

    thanks for the sweet comment on my blog btw :)

  9. i slept until 8:40 this morning. it was glorious. still i could've gone longer. of course then my body would start aching and i'd be all stiff. isn't that funny? not really, it's just a sign of getting older. i'm not ready to get old. anyway, that skirt is the bomb. i love that you sewed it up into those cool gathers. such a great idea for a too big skirt. love it!

  10. i love your hair! you remind me of a 20's beauty! soooo fun :)


  11. I need lots of sleep too :D. Just today I took an afernoon nap to catch up on it XD. It makes me feel older than I am! All my friends can stay up as late as they want to but I just fall asleep the minute I get tired, there's no helping it!

    Your skirt is really interesting, I love it :D. And I like your colour combination!

  12. Is this another high-contrast picture? It's kind of blinding. But other than that, a good post. Hope you didn't step in dog doodie. Sleeping in is neat!

    Tasha xoxo


With two children and a tendency to procrastinate, I don't often return comments. But I do appreciate them! So thank you!
