I know I will pay for this tomorrow but my normal hours to sleep are from around 3-4am to 10-11am. I can't sleep right now and the alarm is going off in about 2 hours! I will be going all day today too,lol. Am I the only one?

This is me exactly! lmao I hate when people call at 10am and are irritated because I am sleeping!!! I'm like "Hey, did you do 3 loads of laundry between 2 & 4am?? Did you sleep 2hrs then get 3 kids ready for school?" I know they just think I'm lazy,lmao.

nope. i alternate between napping and making sure the site is up and running and all that good stuff.

and even if i did go out, i saw nothing in the ads this year that would have been worth it.

OMG, THANK YOU! I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one who thought this. I have no intentions of going out tomorrow, other than going to Big O Tire to get new brakes. I may swing by Game Stop on my way home, just to pick up a few Cheap Used PSP movies as stocking stuffers for my DS though.

Anywho.....my bf's sisters invited me to go with them. They are leaving in oh....5 minutes. LOL NUTS!! But then again, what the heck am I still doing up?? :P

Not going to sleep here either. The online shopping I'm doing, the stores are coming on at such staggered times that I have no chance to sleep. Then it's off to the stores!

I have been napping all day...and then got up for the amazon sale but I can't get in to the movies so it looks like I will be picking those up at walmart with the $25.00 microwave.

Well I had planned on getting a little sleep before we went out. I am so excited I was able to get everything on my list at Kohl's that I can't sleep. Good thing because DH got up to go and now he is sick :(

Summer is horrible since I don't want to waste the warm sunny days.....I get no sleep either,lol.


I ended up having to lay down with DS4 so he'd sleep and fell asleep for 30 minutes.....I think it was worse than if I got no sleep. Then I came home and couldn't get warm so I fell asleep around 8:20am and got up at 9:15am for the amazon.com vote thing. Soooooo tired,lol. I still won't be able to fall asleep until 3am tomorrow though,lol.

:yup:Yep, same here. We are all trying to get back on a "normal" sleep pattern for us. We are falling asleep at weird times and I couldn't go to sleep until about 3am this morning after sleeping most of the day yesterday.

We never sleep before BF shopping! We spend Thanksgiving evening going through the ads and getting our lists together. Then we hit the internet and scoop up some stuff and then we usually head out at midnight or so. Our outlet mall opens at midnight so we start there and are at Walmart by 3am scoping out the pallets. We usually are back home and in for a long nap by 11am.

Why Sleep? Of course when you get in line at 1:30AM that doesn't leave much time to snooze. . . :) C
