Saturday morning insomnia

I don't know what it is, but there is a phenomenon going on in our house called Saturday Morning Insomnia. It seems that for some reason if there is a Saturday that doesn't require us to be up early to go somewhere that inevitably I am WIDE awake hours before it is necessary. Sometimes it's as early as 3:30 and I wake up all on my own. Sometimes I am woken up by the boys, and sometimes (as in today) I get woken up by my boys AND Cory's "acidental" alarm clock set for a ridiculously early time. Hunter woke up at 5:00 am. Cory was a wonderful hubby and went in to take care of him. I tried and tried to fall back asleep and just as I was about to drift to slumber land Cory's phone alarm went off at 5:30 am and continued to go off until I was sufficiently awake - no WIDE awake.

I tried laying there for about 15 minutes, but it was clear that I wasn't falling back to sleep anytime soon so I got up and hit the computer to scrapbook. Sure, I should have probably folded laundry, unloaded the dishwasher, gotten organized....but if I had to be awake so early I was going to do something I wanted to - not something I needed to do :)

We woke up this morning by being shaken, not stirred. WOW - first earthquake to ever wake up Justin and he was on the bottom floor where usually we don't feel earthquakes. It shook my vases and pictures on my floor and about shook me out of bed, which again, is unusual because usually earthquakes are only a whisper on this floor. On the top floor, the house usually swings back and forth. It really felt like the house was going to tear in half.

A little more exciting than the accidental alarm - which happens occasionally at our house too. Glad you got to do something you wanted instead of chores.

LOVE YOU, Aunt Charlotte

Unfortunately, when the alarm goes off at the wrong time at our house, it's my fault, since I'm the alarm setter. We got woken up today with cat drama at 5:30; fortunately I went back to sleep.

I admire your ability to grab an hour here and there to do what you love--I tend to wait for a big chunk of time, which seldom comes. . . Have a great weekend! Love, Sandra
