Insomnia

My husband and I have been trying to have a date night at home once a week.  We'll watch a movie or a show, complete with the fixings of a movie date-popcorn, candy, drinks (what kind of drinks depends on what's going on the next day and to an extent what happened during the day already).

Last night, it was Duck Dynasty and the season finale of Penny Dreadful (how we didn't watch it when we'd watched all the other episodes is beyond me), Crunch 'n Munch Buttery Toffee, Charleston Chew minis, and water.

Turns out this was a bad idea.  First of all, despite MY insistence that we do this, I wanted to go to bed at around 9 PM.  Which was when we had to pick up our two youngest from church youth group.

All I wanted was for them to go to bed so I could eat that Buttery Toffee Crunch 'n Munch.  Seriously, my husband is LUCKY I didn't eat that whole box on the way home.  Of course, they had to come home and eat dinner.  The nerve, really!

So they went to bed, and it was time to wait for the oldest to go to bed.  That never happened, because we both fell asleep or started to.  We went to bed.

And I woke up around 2 hours later, with terrible heartburn.  But it was the kind that is mostly gas, which I know, TMI.

Anyways, I read somewhere once that if you have heartburn, you should lay on your left side.  I tried that, and my sleeping husband decided that was my sign for him to become super sleepy amorous.

I ran away to the living room.  A good thing to because I was crying my stomach hurt so much.

I am one of the strange people that even though I'm sick, I can't sit still.  So, I cleaned the kitchen, moved stuff around in the living room and swept and mopped the kitchen and the bathroom.  Then I looked through my craft stuff, and found my fat quarters so I don't have to buy more for my sewing class next month.

Now, I just need to vacuum the living room, which I didn't think would be the coolest thing to do at like 12:30 in the morning.  I HAVE done it though, when the husband wasn't here and while the children were in bed asleep.  I figure there's a better chance for him to hear the vacuum since the bedroom is right over the living room.  So I wait.  And I plan.

Dinner that is!

I finished the project I was working on, whatever that was, I cannot remember without looking, so I decided that I would go through my box and start finishing my UFOs that I hid.  So yesterday, I finished the Summer Squares Beach Tote that I started sometime last year.  I put it aside because it was looking like I'd need another ball of yarn to finish it and the yarn was (still is) insanely expensive (to my cheapskate mind).  I finally bought some more of the yarn and here we are months later and I'm done!

I am working along on Rain Drops by Yumiko Alexander.  It's a great knitting pattern that uses 100% wool yarn and I get to felt it!  I'm very excited about felting the bag, as I've seen some of the others that were done and they look great.  Mine will too!

Well, the kids are getting up and leaving for school, so I will bid you all adieu.  I hope your Thursday is filled with love and many blessings.
