Checking in on the Bedtime Challenge and other stuff.

As you may or may not know Shark Week starts next Sunday (August 10th).

People keep asking me when I'm starting school back.  After one of my friends shared this awesome link with me I think I know my answer.  Our first week of school is going to be Shark Week.  Awesome sauce!!

As for my bedtime challenge, here's where we stand.  Saturday night I went to bed at 12:40 a.m.  I got up Sunday morning at 7:30 a.m.  Good news - I got 6 1/2 hours sleep.  Bad news - It is not good to wake up at 7:30 a.m. if you are trying to get 8 people out the door by 9 a.m.  And I don't mean any ole "out the door".  On Sundays everyone has on their nice clothes which require ironing (more often than not) and I require makeup and hair.  Little girls need bows and people want to eat.  It's not nice to yell on your way to the Lord's house either.  Again, I should have gone to bed earlier.  I must.  

Sunday night I went to bed at 11:30 p.m.  I was really proud of myself as this was closer to my bedtime goal.  It took just a little while to fall asleep since I was totally worn out.  Monday morning, sadly, I slept until 7:30 a.m. again.  My honey turned off the alarm at 6 a.m.  I heard it.  I heard him get in the shower and I smelled coffee brewing, but I could. not. move.  He slipped out and left me in the dark peaceful room all alone.  I fell back asleep and woke up at 7:30!!  He was so happy and proud of himself for getting out of there without waking me up, as he thinks I need more sleep, but I was pretty bummed because I think I need more hours in my morning.   

Last night and today don't even count.  I got almost no sleep last night.  My husband has developed an infection from his surgery and is not doing well.  He spent the night hurting and I spent the night worrying.  I attempted to go to bed at 1:30 a.m. but didn't fall right to sleep.  I got up at 7:30 a.m. 

This challenge is not going well so far but it is going to get better!  Lord willing I will be up by 6 a.m. the rest of the week.  

How is the challenge going for you??

Before I go, here are a few other little things I wanted to pass along...

Did you know Doorposts is having a summer sale?  I got a cool freebie last night.  Head over to the Homegrown Cozy facebook page and get the information (and the coupon code).  And while you are there please give us a "like" too, if you haven't already.

Every now and then I read something I like to share with my readers.  Here's an article I read a while back that I liked and thought maybe you would too - "To the Lady Ashamed to be Pregnant with Her Fourth".  If you have a minute perhaps you may want to read it.     

Lastly, this.  I like it.   

Make it a cozy day!!
