I Heart Me Monday Week Seven

This week’s prompt from the lovely J Notes is:

What could you go today to make your life easier?

Well, I’m writing this in bed from my iPhone, as one of the things I can do today to make life easier is get a good night’s sleep!

I’m terrible for having to drag myself to bed at nights. It’s my only time to really unwind and have me-time that doesn’t have a time limit. Know what I mean?

I completely forgot about writing this post until now. If I was being stupid (which is often the case in the evenings when I’d do almost anything to not go to bed) I’d go back downstairs, switch my mac back on and write this up, add in the correct links and picture (which I’ll edit in later) and then no doubt lose a couple more hours just getting lost on the interwebs!

Today though, as I’ve been staying up later over our Feb break, I need to have an early one so that I can get my butt up and ready to face the day without making the boys late, so bedtime it is for me!

Keeping my fingers crossed that Max won’t fully wake tonight in a couple of hours. I’m hoping that it’s been because he’s heard the tv on or me pottering about downstairs the last few nights that he’s woken up. If it’s dark and we’re all asleep that shouldn’t happen, right??

Edited to add the pretty badge and links. And to add that I feel WONDERFUL having had a full 8 hours of sleep! Max slept through! YAY!

    I think making my life easier would be Amy falling asleep when put to bed.

    Ah, sleep. What a difference it makes, although I got 8 hours on Saturday and felt crushed all day yesterday… Go figure :-S

    I know what you mean, sleep is a necessity but some of us do anything to avoid it. I LOVE my sleep but LOVE my child-free night times too. Been trying to go to bed earlier for a year now. When I do it the effect is huge. Still slip back to habit though. Like now, tapping away at 11.12pm with no sign of giving up.

    Oh god yes, I am *exactly* the same! So hard to switch off when you want to DO so much! >_<

    Hmmmm, what could I do today to make my life easier? More like what could I not do!!

    I would be absolutely the same about the sleep thing except that my husband always goes up when the news has finished and I tend to go with him. Thank goodness for sensible spouses!

    Hehe yeah see my exes all seem to have been night owls like me, so that never worked well!

    I do hope you have had a good half-term of sleeping as you wish Marylin xxx
