My secret is out!

I was just visiting around the blogs today, waiting on my yeast for my pizza dough... and I stumbled upon my name on somebody else's blog! She labeled me a night owl! (And she even spelled my name right! I LOVE when people do that! Thanks!) How did she ever figure that one out?!

As most of you know, we've been gone all of June and July, and I didn't hardly stitch at all, I think maybe two days total. Since we've been back, I've stitched every single evening.. and for the past, oh ten days at least, I've stitched until 2AM! Well, actually since the opening ceremonies of the Olympics!

I keep telling myself I'm going to go to bed early, but when it's 10:00 and DH is in bed and the boys are just quieting down in their own beds, I hate to "waste" the quiet time! So I tell myself, just stitch until 11:00. Then I say, just til 12:00 and then last night at 1:30 am I say to myself, Should I start another project? I still have 3o minutes!

It's terrible, really it is! But I just love the peace and quiet from about 10-2! Course school starts Monday... Andrew will be up around 6:30 and Luke at 8:00. So I'm thinking...go to bed early, get up with Andrew, send him off to school at 7:00... stitch until 8:00 when I have to get up with Luke.. right?

What's really gonna happen is this: Stitch until 2am. Drag myself out of bed at 6am and wake up Andrew...rush him out the door. Go back to sleep until 8:00 when I get Luke up.. get him to school by 8:45 and then wonder all day why I didn't go to bed earlier! I'll swear to myself that I'll go to bed early that night. So 9:30 rolls around, I'll tuck the boys in bed (while answering for the millionth time, "Why do I have to go to bed?" My answer: "Every single kid in the world has to go to bed, so you do too!") Dh will either be on his way to bed, or already in bed.. And I'll say to myself: "Maybe just a few stitches!" And then before I know it, it will be 2AM and we'll start the whole process over!

Which do you think it will be?! :)

If you're at all like me, and it sounds like you are, it will be the latter...just a few more stitches!! I wish I could stitch more, but I work rotating shifts and it's hard to keep up with everything else, much less stitching sometimes! Good luck!!

I don't stay up till 2 am, but I do stay up later than I should because I also hate to lose that little bit of "me" time after everyone has quieted down after a long, busy day. ;)
