I always get the most inspiration and drive to write a blog late at night...what is that about?!

I mean seriously, there are sooo many hours during the day when I could be doing this but I don't. Yes, I have been a night owl for the whole of my 28yrs on this planet. I can't really help it's inherited. Honest!

My mom and her sister, well actually almost all the women on my mother's side of the family are night owls. Now that's not to say that we don't like our time all comfy and cozy in the bed...we do...we just like to be after midnight.

I love having days where I don't have to get up. Not having to be anywhere by such and such time. A day where I don't have to set the alarm or worry about hitting the ground running...though that only happens because I tend to sleep a little longer than I should on days that I DO have to be somewhere at a certain time. Namely work!

I have started to notice a change in behaviour in the last few years though...and it saddens me and makes me feel old!

A couple of years ago, I had to get up on a day sleep-in day to go to the bathroom! My BLADDER woke me up and I had to get up!! Now, this may not seem like a big deal to anyone else but I have always considered having your bladder wake you up in the morning as a sign of your *cough* "maturity" *cough* and I did not, and still don't, really consider myself that "mature"...well you know what I mean...I just can't say it plain and remain in the good graces of all of my more "mature" friends!

So that was one example...another is something that just came to me lately...I can't sleep as long as I used to because it hurts my back...I can not believe I just typed that!! Sad day! And it truly
is a sad day because I feel that the days of my sleeping forever and ever are gone...all due to my back! Boo! I used to love staying up late and then sleeping til noon or occasionally later! Loved it!!

But alas, those days are more in my past than in my present and future. I will get over it soon enough, Im sure.

Anyways... here I am typing a blog when I should sooo be sleeping! I have to get up in 5 and half hours to be at work at 6:45 and its 11:55!! As I have now just spent a crazy amount of time writing about something completely different than what I originally intended to, I am going to sign off for now and try to come back tomorrow and post what I wanted to tonight. Don't worry, I haven't hit the "maturity" level of not being able to remember what I was going to say...well, most of the time, but this is something that Ive been meaning to write for a while and just have not had the time to sit and do.

Tomorrow that time should come!
G'night all! Or G'morning depending on how you look at it!! Lol!

Girl, this post is cracking me up. Your 'maturity..' Grin!

Honey, just drink a little less water before you hit the bed, and you won't have to embrace the maturity for a bit longer :)

love you

Maturity? Okay, what does that make me REALLY OLD? Seriously, I am still waiting to grow up. And I'm a night owl, too! Love those late night hours.
