I used to have it and could get by with just two or three hours of sleep a night.  Those days are gone and I must have a full night's sleep or I transform into CrankyBitch. 

Unfortunately, J has insomnia. 

If I go to bed early enough to get good and asleep before he wanders up to bed I am okay - and can usually sleep through his nocturnal wanderings.  But the last couple of nights I have been awake when he decided it was bed time.  Oh. My. God.  The man watches tv.  He reads.  He listens to his CDs.  He eats.  He drinks.  He flips channels on the television.  He eats again.  He watches tv and FINALLY finds something that interests him, so he cranks the volume up.  I mumble something about turning it down a lil please.  He then continues to flip channels.  Wander through to the kitchen for a drink of water.  Etc., Etc., and so on and so forth.

Tonight I stood up and announced (before I was fully awake) that now I understand why I go to bed so early, that if I am not comatose before he comes up then I just don't sleep well.  No response - he went back to watching the interviews with the Sister Wives. 

So now I am downstairs at 2:00 a.m.  I've wandered the house, I've eaten brownies, I've drank water, I've let the dog outdoors.. I've read the news, now I'm blogging.

I guess insomnia is contagious.  CrankyBitch will soon be making an appearance, I'm guessing.

I would probably have to stab him. Don't yall have like a HUGE house that you can watch TV in different locations and stuff?

Also, I was totally watching The Sister Wives interviews things last night. Is it just me, or does that dude come off as a TOTAL douche!?!?

Of course he's a total douche. He has snookered 5 different women into believing that God wants him to get laid by different women every night. Although I did notice when I watched it last year that he drove a really nice car - they all do - so what does he do for a living other then sell their lives to the tv stations?

And our house isn't that huge. We do have the big tv and sofa in the basement, but the sofa is broken and the only one brave enough to sit on it is Joe. lol

He is in some kind of or something. Totally weird those people. Still, I can't stop watching.

Put John in the "pool house". LOL!
