As the nightowl that I am…..I’m sittin’ here alone….with the laptop……*sigh*

I’ve always loved the nighttime…..it was kind of my “own” time…..even when I was a kid…..could start up some imaginary worlds right at bedtime…..in my teens I used to rearrange my room….so my mother would have a fit the next morning when she found most of my furniture in the living room….’cause the rearranging didn’t always worked as I planned…..and I went to bed so I would get SOME shuteye before goin’ to school….

When I had my first baby, Olivia, we got “cable”, so that if she woke up a lot at night I could stay up watchin’ TV waitin’ for her goin’ back to sleep……Olivia started to sleep whole nights when she was 2½ months old…….bummer!!!! 😉

No, I’m very grateful for that fact……but I stayed up watchin’ TV without her…..then I got restless and started some other projects while my hubby and daughter slept…..

Before we got the kids I used to bake in the middle of the night….that was the time I would get inspired……so I started a “tradition”……around my birthday I took a day off from work….usually a Friday or Saturday….slept in late…..had a normal day at home….maybe washin’ some clothes, cleanin’ a bit…..grocery shoppin’….you know…the every day stuff……then hubby would come home from work, we’d had din-din…..then washed up the dishes…..maybe sat in front of the computer for a while or watched some TV….and later….much much later……I would get in the kitchen and start bakin’…..up to seven different types of cookies, or cakes, or bundts……so I stayed up all night….poor hubby fell often asleep on the couch or went to bed……I used to call it a night around 2 or 3 A.M……went to bed……got up around 9ish or 10ish for some breakfast and maybe some more bakin’ and around noon our friends used to drop in for some coffee and cake….. 🙂

I used to love those nights……once a year…..of course I would bake other nights too….but those were special…..then came the kids and I haven’t done that in almost 11 years now….maybe it’s time to get back in the saddle, huh? 😉

It’s almost 3 A.M…….better go get some sleep tonight…..it’s been a rough day on the emotions….but I’m very pleased with the fact that I finally got to start writing online…..it’s been on my mind for a long time now…..

Night, night peeps! Take care, sweet dreams and sleep tight! <3
