9 hours of sleep!

I KNOW!

Can you believe it???

Why don't I go to bed at a reasonable hour EVERY night? It's not about what time I get up in the morning - that is something I can set easily and really don't mind getting up early when necessary (don't get me wrong - I love a good 'sleep in'), also our kids aren't babies anymore so we don't have the 'you get up' 'no, you get up' arguments any more (don't get me wrong - I didn't lose those one's very often ... my wife is so good! ;) ).

The problem is - I just don't like going to bed! I thought when I grew up that the soft sheets and fluffy pillow in my own Master Bedroom with a beautiful wife would be all the allure I would ever need to want to snuggle up and wander off to dreamland.

But it isn't.

I like late night TV talk-shows like Leno, Letterman, O'Brien & Ferguson. I like internet surfing like facebook, habsworld & politics. I like late night snacks like ice cream, cookies & (of course) cocoa puffs. These and other things have fed my bad habit of going to bed WAYYYYY too late.

But I feel SO good today. What a productive day. I thought by noon that it must be the end of the day since I had accomplished so much.

Stay tuned for the continuing saga of ... As the Pillow Turns!

Will Rob have an encore performance of going to bed at a reasonable hour?
Will the next day be so productive?
Will he fall to the Cocoa Puff craving again?
Will he EVER eat Cocoa Puffs at bedtime again?
Why do pirates love parrots?
Why can't you buy grape ice cream?

Can't wait to learn the answers to these questions and MORE!

You are hilarious. Oh to have 9 hours of sleep. Guess something to look forward to when the kids are only. Mine just get up way too early!
You do realize that you lost August as well don't you?
