Could These Be The Sleeping Pills I Needed?!

      I am in shock that it's the time the clock says it is!! I feel like Alice in Wonderland or something. Like I went down a rabbit hole into a world of sleeplessness...and all of a sudden I woke up into a world where I can't get enough of it!! LOL
      I'm not kidding!...Day before yesterday, just out of the blue, my mind said: "You're sleepy. You should take a nap."...It was 10:30 a.m. when it said that.....So I did! And I woke up at around 5:30 p.m. O_O I didn't get excited because I thought it was probably just a fluke after days and days...or weeks and weeks (I've kinda lost track!) of not sleeping!!
      Then yesterday my mind said: "I think you need another nap."...And just so you know, No! I'm not actually hearing voices! LOL It was just sort of a strong feeling that I translated into words...Anyway, I laid myself down. It turned into a four hour or so "nap"!
     I woke up in the early evening, still feeling like I could sleep some more...but I didn't dare allow myself to go back to sleep! If I did, I was sure that it would mean I'd be up all night again! O_O So, hubby and I got some things done, giggled our way through writing an update to our 'couples blog',...By the way, do you follow our blog?! If so, sorry it's so long between postings. We do it when the feeling hits us...If you wanna follow it, click --> HERE <--...Then we had a late dinner, took our vitamins and went to bed.
      It was now about 10:30 p.m. After a kiss goodnight, and a back and body rub...(hubby does this every night for me, to help my circulation and to relax my muscles)...hubby, as usual, went immediately off to dreamland. I laid there for a few minutes blinking and breathing into my C-Pap machine. LOL
      I turned the T.V. to the music channel, hummed some Stevie Nicks, and the next thing I was 8 O'clock.....this morning!!!! I remember waking up around 2 O'clock, blinking a few times, and then resetting the timer for the music channel. One hour please! ^_^ I'm wide awake right now....behind time on doing my blog, but awake! Relaxed. Rested. Ready to go!! ^_^
      This sudden sleep bonanza has me wondering what I did differently to start getting all of this sleep. The answer?...Hubby bought me a large bag of M&Ms with almonds the other day, and I've been snacking on them all times of day and night...Could M&MS be the sleeping pill I've needed all this time!! LOL If so...well, alrighty then!! Point me to the candy aisle!! ^_^
       I know, I know! It's probably got nothing to do with the M&Ms....but I'm gonna stay stocked up with M&Ms with almonds anyway.....just in case! ^_^ ...Speaking of candy, I finally listed my candy holder slipper in my shop yesterday...HERE... and as an incentive to get somebody to buy it, I'm throwing in a large bag of fruity tootsie rolls (the ones shown in the photos). I Google searched yesterday to make sure I could send candy in the mail. ^_^ I can!!
      Now....just because I feel kinda guilty being all awake, and talking your heads off and everything, I'm gonna share a couple of Etsy finds to break up the monotony. ^_^ Enjoy!!

       And.....I'm off! LOL Have a good day Everybody! :-)


It feels good to be awake!
Eyes wide open. Brain cells too!
Now my mind and eyes need focus.
Let's go find something to do!


  1. I'm heading out right now to buy some M&M's and I don't have any sleep problems..but you never ounce or 50 is worth a pound of cure..or something like that! (or a 20lb gain on the scale with my luck!) Glad the sandman in visiting and I hope it continues!

    1. Hi Yaya! :-) Enjoy your M&Ms! Whether you sleep more or not is immaterial! LOL...and lose the scale. ^_^

  2. I'm so glad to hear that you got some much needed sleep. If M&M's help you sleep I think you ought to stock up them just in case :D
    Love that NYC watercolour. I could see that hanging on my wall.

    1. ^_^ Yep! I bought me some more M&Ms today! I'm sleeping like a baby! LOL I'm 'striking while the iron is hot'. I know this 'medicine' is not gonna last! ^_^
