What's the point in making the bed?

Almost every night of my life I get tired so I get ready for bed. The only problem is, getting ready for bed involves brushing my teeth. The minty flavor of toothpaste, the clean feeling, and cold water wakes me up! So, by the time I actually lay down to go to sleep it takes me a good 10, 15, sometimes 30 minutes to fall asleep. Ever had this problem, or is it only me?

There is no need in our home to make the bed. I wake up about the same time Johnny gets home to go to bed. Sometimes I try to sleep in so I can catch some z's with my husband, but lately he has been getting home too late for me to even enjoy sleeping in. He wakes up, we have dinner, possibly enjoy a movie or a whatever then he is off to work and I'm off to bed. Our schedules used to be off by about 1 hour; I would go to work right before he got home. So we wouldn't see each other until about 5, Just in time for my dinner and his breakfast. Now that I have quit my job, I have a little alone time while Johnny gets the necessary sleep he needs to function. Most my time seems to be spent doing repetitive cleaning. blah. Oh, yeah and taking Tito out every 5 minutes to let him pee. Why on earth did we get a dog with the smallest bladder?

Anyway, this post is becoming pretty random. I am enjoying the time to myself and am reconsidering what I want to do with my life. I am now thinking, what the heck, I might just become a spin instructor. I have hated every job I have ever had. Each for different reasons. Johnny thinks I just don't like to work, and that may be true. I would rather believe I haven't found my niche yet. I hate doing something all day thinking, I don't like this. I am grateful for a husband who will work, and who got a degree in something that actually provides a career path (unlike mine haha). I am grateful that he is willing to take advantage of the education he has paid for (and earned) to work in that area of practice. Although, he may not enjoy it or want to do it for the rest of his life. I am just happy he can be the sole bread winner, buying me time to figure out what I want to do.

I am partly making a post just because I haven't done anything on this blog since I think October. My food blog has also been lacking. I have a love hate relationship with blogger. I think my friend Vanessa can relate. :) Speaking of Vanessa, she posted a note about 2009 and it made me think about all the events that happened to us last year. Wow, what a year. I can hardly remember what even happened - it went by so fast!

My toothpaste high is now gone, good night! And good morning Johnny :)

P.S. sorry no pics, my computer crashed and I now have none.

I DO love "Wild Hearts Can't Be Broken"! It's a classic!
I get the same way...I can't sleep once I've gotten ready for bed because of all that it takes to get ready for bed.
I hope you are doing well! I haven't seen your face since Halloween! Crazy! :)
