You Awake?

So what do you do at 4 in the morning? Sleep! Wow, that is a novel concept. Me? Sleep? No way. Seems that 4 a.m. is the perfect time to do all kinds of things. You see here is my waking thoughts at that un-godly hour of the morning.

Humm, neighbor is leaving for work. Sorry he has to be there so early. Sorry that his driveway seems to right at my bedroom window. Sorry still that I think he must have to come through my bedroom window to get in his truck. Well, it sounds like it.

Mumbling about the dogs scratching at the door. Quietly under my breath so I don't wake Dear Hubby. Bet Dear Hubby is cursing the dogs under his breath so he don't wake me.

Get up and let dogs in bedroom before they scratch the door down.

Wow, I am up....that is something that sure feels de-ja-vu for me. Think I am here most mornings. Looking at the bed from the doorway. See sleeping hubby, happy dogs and me not in bed.

Go clean up dog mess in kitchen. Clean up cat mess in plants. Clean up cat litter so they will not use plants. Let dogs out now that they are scratching at the door again. I am a maid to my dogs and cats. Let dogs back in.

Did you know you can still wash your hair in the kitchen sink. Glad I left some shampoo and condition here. Wish I had left a toothbrush and toothpaste. Remember I have a "Wisp" in my purse. Yipee! Clean hair and better feeling teeth. Grab brush from purse too.

Make coffee! Curse myself for waiting so long to do that. Hug myself for the heck of it.

Start a load of laundry. Take other laundry out of dryer and fold/hang. Mark that chore off of mental list. Decide to go ahead and sweep and mop floors. Ok.

Realize it is no longer 4 a.m. Boy time flies when your not having fun. Fix myself a cup of coffee. Wonder how FaceBook managed with out me for 6 hours. Know I have 1 hour to myself so I can play online. Be glad that there is some time for just that.

Get on blog and talk to my friends.
So what do y'all do at 4 a.m.?


  1. Sleep!

    I used to GO to bed at 4. But now I try to get to bed by 10, up at 6:45.

  2. LOL, See now this is perfectly normal to me. But maybe thats not comforting :)

  3. 4 AM is about the time Skyler starts needing to be turned over and get comfy, so I am up...

  4. Hey Kiddo! I haven't been to bed yet and it's 4:51am. I just now thought about those cans LOL! Sorry about that! I'll get them as soon as this ice thing is over, I Promise. Anyway, you have an award waiting for you at my blog! It's a long post, so just keeeeeeeeeep scrolling LOL! I didn't realize how long it was going to be til I was almost done.

    Love ya bunches!

  5. At 4 am I am usually still sleeping, at 4:15 my first alarm goes off and I turn off or snooze it and doze back off. At 4:25 my snooozed alarm goes off again and I turn it off and doze back to sleep. At 4:45 my final alarm goes off and I snuggle with Kevin then finally get out of bed to get ready for work. You are entirely too active at 4:00 am!!!

  6. Last week I was staying up until about that time. Sleep deprivation sucks!

  7. Hey Kiddo! Sorry about that! For some reason, it does that some times. I think mainly when I realize it's too long of post and I try to delete some of the empty space, maybe I accidentally delete the comment thingy. Anyway thank you I got it fixed. Where it said post selections, it was clicked on disallow somehow. Were you able to get your award? I didn't see it on your blog.

    Love ya!


  8. Thankfully I'm sleeping at that hour. My insomnia starts at the other end.

  9. Whoa - 4am?? that's absurd. I hate 4am!!!
    I haven't washed my hair in the kitchen sink in FOREVER. I used to do this when my girlfriends would come over an we would color each others hair.
    I wonder if I would wash my floors if I stayed up til 4am.....cause I don't do it at other times, maybe that's the key.
    Sometimes I check FB from my phone late at night before going to sleep, just to see what I've missed...


Yippee! You came to talk to me. Thanks.
You know how special that makes me feel?
Like I swallowed the moon and the stars and I just shine now!
