Starbuck's Java Chip Ice Cream

I have such a weakness for Starbuck's and ice cream and when you can put them together, who can resist? However, as I get older (ugh!) I have discovered less of a tolerance for caffeine after 3pm. When I go to Starbuck's, at that hour, I can order de-caf. However the Java Chip ice cream does not have that option. So when my husband dished me a bowl at 9:30 last night (or is it technically still this evening?) I enjoyed it, but not so much now!

In case this doesn't time stamp, it is 1am my time. I am doing a load of laundry, checking email, and then am going to work on my scripture memorization. I was asleep, sort of. I was in that I-think-I'm-asleep state, but very conscience of everything going on (husband's breathing, dog rolling over, baby whimpering) that it's not very peaceful. My "dreams" are all the things I have to accomplish tomorrow. If you were to look at me, you'd probably assume I was sleeping (helpful when trying to escape small children in the middle of the afternoon), but really I'd know you were in the room and if I was particularly alert, I'd probably be able to tell what you were wearing even though my eyes were closed (extra-talented!).

Daughter #2 woke me up about 12:30am, having wet the bed. We are attempting to get rid of the pull-up this week. I give it a week of trying and then we go back to pull-ups to try again later. This is only day two and the laundry is piling up. After getting her cleaned up and sheets changed (not fun on a full size bed with the lights out and a baby sleeping three feet away), I was too awake to lay in bed going crazy.

I know I will pay for it tomorrow - very busy day, but I just can't sleep. I loved the ice cream, but I think it will have to be a splurge for once in a while and only before 3pm!

You're right. You should have called me, and then I could have been inspired to use my wakefulness productively by doing laundry and such, too. Donosaurus is tired and crabby this morning but still only took a 20 minute nap. He's crazy! Or maybe that's me. Have a lovely weekend!
