Tossing and Turning

Unable to fall asleep, my mind started to wander. Something was making me feel uneasy. But what was it? Searching, I mentally went through my list of things to do at work. Did I remember to send that e-mail to my coworker? Yes. Did I return that reporter's phone call? Yes. Hmm....

OH NO!

I haven't cleaned out my deleted folder in my work e-mail account since before Christmas break! The horror!

Yes, people. This is what keeps me up at night.

That and also being afraid to get up to use the bathroom. That's right. I'm five.

Too funny! Sometimes I find myself thinking about the most random things at night.

I'm not much older. I feel your pain.

i'm afraid to get up to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night too. when i do (only if i have to go REALLY bad) i think of the most scariest stuff happening (you know strange people in the mirror, someone jumping out at me, etc). lol

I don't get up to use the bathroom at night. I am afraid of the dark and the walk to the bathroom is too damn creepy.

We can be 5 together.

Jacqueline, I think it's the only time of the day I actually have time to think.

Deutlich, High five for being five!

Ria, I am the same way! Sometimes I stomp around to be extra loud in order to "accidentally" wake Andrew--so he'll save me if something bad happens.

Jossie, The bathroom is exactly three feet from my bedroom. A lot can happen in those three feet. Am I right?

Truth: Sometimes when coming back to my bed after making a late night run to the bathroom, I have to check in my closet. You know, just in case a murderer decided to hide in there while I was walking across the hall and back. I'm five too.

I'm don't like sleeping with the closet doors open because my clothes look an awful lot like zombies in the dark.

So yeah, I'm joining your "I'm Five" club! :D

Last night nightmares about not finishing my next grant on time kept me up.

No man, sometimes it's too dark in the middle of the night.

I don't get up either.

Jane said...

You sound almost as bad as me! The other night, I could NOT sleep until I had mentally composed a stand-up comedy routine. I highly doubt that I will be doing stand-up comedy in the next 50 years. Clearly, I'm insane.

I didn't go to the bathroom last night when I had to because my slippers were near a spider I had to kill before bed, and I was worried there was a spider in my slippers. So I didn't get up to pee. Yeah. Crazy.

i hate getting up in the middle of the night too, always weirds me out.

I worry about getting out of bed and an arm reaching from underneath the bed grabbing my ankle.

I also worry about coming back to finding spiders, ants or rodents taking up homage under my warm covers.
