Y'all it is after midnight, AND I CAN"T SLEEP. I have been trying to sleep, I have been thinking about sleeping. But I can't seem to do it. My head won't SHUT UP. I tried praying (just because I do at night) and my head kept meandering off. AN example..

God thank you for this day. Thank you for Thing 1's enthusiasm for ...hmmm I wonder if I painted a huge USA in the playroom, no that's too big maybe in the schoolroom of our next house. DANG - sorry God - Thank you Lord for the blessing of our new nephew, Wow I can't wait to buy him baby clothes, I wonder what they'll name him. I haven't even seen SIL pregggers yet. This is pitiful I can't even PRAY. Hmm, I should blog about this. I should get up and go blog about me not being able to sleep and me thinking about blogging about not being able to get to sleep.

WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME??? I am wide awake (and giggling over my inanity and silliness)
I can't sleep (and my hubby can - and does so, LOUDLY!) (See Shannon! A COMMA!)

If you're still with me (boy, are you bored! WAIT! Don't leave! Whatd' I say?) I have a question. SO, you have met a new friend that called you for the first time How long do you wait to return the favor? (I feel 14, how stupid - of course it could be the lack of SLEEP! Did I mention my hubby snores??) If you don't know what TIRL go here I'll wait (I don't have anything else planned) Good-night what is wrong with me? I am snarky tonight. So is it polite to return the call or shall I wait for her to call again? Help me out people! What's the bloggy etiquette ?

And I really do have a neat idea for the schoolroom in our next house (the one I fantasize about all the time - it also comes with washing machines that do the laundry themselves, children who actually like to clean up their toys, a potty with an automatic lid closer, and Rosie the Robot ~from the Jetsons~ to do anything else I have forgotten) Back to my idea.

The idea is to paint a large USA on one wall, paint in all the states and then get pictures of all our relatives and either attach the pics to the state they live in or attach the pictures to the wall next to them and do the thingies (gettin technical here, try to keep up!) like you see on maps when they can't fit the name on the states (or if you're a redneck, like the little boxes above the cars when you're watchin a Nascar race ~I only know that 'cuz I done married inta a Nascar family, Thing 1 was Dale Jr last Halloween, and Tony Stewart the year before that) I think It would be neat for the kids to get where they all live. Then above the USA (ya know where Canada usually is) I am thinking of painting clouds and the words "Dancing for Jesus" and pictures of the Great Grandparents (my kids were lucky enough at one time to have 5 living great grandparents we have lost 3 since Thing 2's birth).

That's it! I'm taking a unisom and goin to bed. AGAIN. G'night

Gee...I know a guy that did a big US mural one time and each of the states was painted with its flag. HMMM...I'm pretty sure I could convince him to help you with yours when you are ready. :)

Listen, if you're thinking about moving, don't paint so much on the wall and then have to paint OVER it to sell (less clutter, neutral tones, better staging of home). INSTEAD, you could paint it on a stretched canvas, hang it, and TAKE IT with you the next time you move. Too much work to leave behind, no?

I don't sleep well. Never have. Maybe a couple of times a month...
