Before I tell you about the situation with my 'sleep monster' last night, let me thank grimmandgrete of Etsy for putting my "Purse Sueded Hand Bag" ...
...in her "Summer-It Ain't Over 'til It's Over" Treasury! And please take the time to check out her shop too! She has the most beautiful jewelry in her shop! This is just one piece:
It's a "Ginger. Green Czech Glass. Sunflower Necklace". Isn't it gorgeous?! Wait until you see the other pieces!!
I've been doing pretty good in the treasury department lately! I'm hoping all of this exposure will turn into some sales soon. One sale in over a month (which I got this weekend) is not a whole lot!!...Anyway, these are the other shops sharing this treasury with me:

Okay, back to my 'Sleep Monster' story. I was very tired last night, so I decided to go to bed early. (Plus I knew that today was the start of the first round play of the U.S. Open Tennis matches!! The earlier I went to bed, the earlier I could be up and geting ready to watch!! LOL)
I put the TV channel on the sports highlights, turned it down real low, and set the TV timer to go off in about an hour (by that time I figured I'd be sound asleep!). Zzzzzzz...HUH?! What was that noise?!...I looked around didn't see anything. Drifted back off........*swishy swishy!!!*....HUH?! Up I popped again!...This went on...NO KIDDING...about 4 times before I was in such an alert panic and couldn't go back to sleep that I woke up hubby and asked him to do some investigating! I was sure someone was trying to get in the house or something, because I was sure I saw a light coming from the other room too!!! (The mind plays some terrible tricks on you when you're tired!)
He wasn't in his most attractive detective gear...
...His Batman mask wasn't even on! Ha! Ha! (I don't think he knew this mask was still on his head.) If there had been someone in the house hiding, this view coming around the corner might have made them giggle and give themselves away! That's what I did...when I looked up from my C-Pap mask!! He was giggling at me and I was giggling at him!
He was giggling because he figured out who the culprit was that was making all of the noise...
...It was my trash can (which is a basket with a trash bag over it)! Apparently my fan was blowing the bag up and down through the side holes every once in a while. UGH!
SOME 'Sleep Monster'!!! And hubby was giggling about this because he and I have had arguments lately about his attempts at lowering our grocery bill by buying reduced price items...and THESE GARBAGE BAGS were one of his buys!!!! They are too thin, don't fit the trash can, and make noise when air hits them in the middle of the night!!! OUT THEY GO!!!! Grrrrrrr! Can a hormonal woman get some sleep around here?!!
His solution, for the time being, was this...
...He threw the heavy phone book in the trash can to weight it down...Ahhhhhhh! Quiet....Zzzzzz....Huh?! Oh,....it's just my C-Pap machine. ^_^ I hope you all slept well!
(In honor of Joanna and Alex's one year wedding anniversary, (of the blog "A Cup Of Jo") I'll share my poem today that I wrote about that same subject. Happy Anniversary Jo and Alex!!! Happy Dance for you!)
We've had one year
of laughs and fun.
I knew we'd make it,
The wedding's over.
The tears are dry.
We're still together,
Year number two
will be easy-maybe!
We'll make it so.
Making it last
will be our career.
We'll go headlong,
For years to come
we'll be right here,
and I'll love you more
each year-My Dear!
