Too much of a good thing.

Oh my gosh, I think I had one too many Diet Cokes today. Here it is 1:30 am and the children are long gone to sleep and I am still tossing and turning and yawning and having caffeine spasms in my legs and I just can't get comfortable in bed, AND I'm sleeping on a Sleep Number bed on somebody else's number! It is just me and the hamster that are up. The hamster, I have discovered, is nocturnal and races around all night, which doesn't help when you are seeking sleep. He seems like a happy little guy tho, so I can't fault him. 

I would have been fine, except I decided to take the kids to McDonalds because I have no idea what to make for them that they will eat. They had their Happy Meal and I had mine, which included the one too many Diet Cokes.

My daughter and her husband are gone for a couple days while they take their daughter to college in Rexburg, Idaho. After that they are going to Jackson, Wyoming for some R and R. They never get away alone together unless I happen to be around. Chris, my SIL, has been singing that he's "going to Jackson" for a week now. I think he has been looking forward to this. They will be back Monday, no doubt smiling.

Meanwhile, I think and hope that Hurricane Earl skipped over my house in Virginia Beach, VA. I don't know how bad North Carolina got it, but apparently it calmed down a bit as it swept north up the coast line. A very good thing.

I will leave you with a photo of Kathryn and her hamster collection as I bid you goodnight, and go off to bed to try again to sleep, perchance to dream.

You're scoring some major mother-in-law points, I'd guess, so that's a very good thing! LOL! I can't decide which it sweetest -- Kathryn or the quilt. :-D ...I don't know about the hamster.

hope you finally got a bit of rest! loved the comment about the hamster's nocturnal habits...our guinea pig throws a party every Friday night. What a racket!
love the precious face on Kathryn (and the log cabin quilt), and her sweet little hamsters- real and "stuffed"!

OMGosh, we had hamsters when my kids were young and we'd removed the running wheel at night so we could sleep!!
I hope you were finally able to sleep!!

My kids had hamsters and I know exactly what you mean about the little nocturnal things, lol! My girls had them in the room next to my bedroom. I think this is when we made them start shutting their doorat night, lol! I can't have caffeine of any kind after 2:00 p.m. at the very latest or I'm up all night (that includes chocolate!). Have fun with the grandbabies! From what I heard on the news your house should be just fine :) Have a fun vacation!
