Why Aren't You In Bed Girl?

A very reasonable & intelligent question!
It is just a shame that my answer is neither reasonable nor intelligent!
Insomnia? A headache? Hot flashes? Fire Ants? Snoring doggie? Alien invasion? No, nothing that normal.
My mind is simply racing tonight and I just can not sleep. I miss Bill. Yep. There. I said it. I miss my husband. I miss his snoring. I miss his socks on the floor.
In the aftermath of today's job news, I am missing him so powerfully that sleep is virtually impossible. I will crash (and probably burn) eventually but I have nowhere to go tomorrow so a nap might be in the offing. Ya thunk?
So, in the interim, I threw quite the festive Pity Party. Unfortunately, all the invited guests are off in various corners of the house, slumbering under vintage quilts and fluffy comforters.
Dan, Grace, Kip, Lucy and even little Henry all sent "Regrets" so I was forced to frolic all by my lonesome. But hey! More food for me!
First came the chocolates. A HUGE box of unopened Esther Price dark chocolate creams. No, I didn't eat them all but I made a dent. A crater actually. And no. I feel absolutely no remorse about it. Okay. Maybe just a wee bit. No...that wasn't remorse I felt, just indigestion.
Then came the Mikesell's Groovy potato chips. And the dip. French Onion to be exact. Hey! They were left over from the holidays and I had to clean out the refrigerator & pantry anyway. I did it for the sake of my family. I wouldn't want them to eat anything that might be past it's prime. I did it out of love. Stop snickering. I DID!
Of course, no party is complete without crudite'. You know those tiny, sweet pickles? There were only 3 left in the jar and it was taking up much too much space in the fridge.
And that celery would have just gone to waste. Yeah, yeah, those baby carrots too. And the cheese cubes. We were down to the last 15 in the bag. They were just taking up much needed ice cold real estate.
Washed them all down with Coca Cola, Root Beer and Ginger Ale. Uh huh. The last 3 cans and yes. I was doing it to free up space. I am all about organizing and re-arranging. Totally unselfish on my part.
Okay, I am starting feel a little drowsy. Groggy even. I guess it is time to put this party guest to bed. Move over Kip, you party pooping pet.
Night all....er...morning...er...well, see ya'll later. Have a good Thursday. I'll be thinking aboutcha.
Hugs,
Suzie Q

Oh no, I hope you don't get a belly ache from that "melting pot" of food...ick!

I'm up too, I was up when you were too.

Feel better friend!

I can't figure out why I'm still up, but I'll surely regret it in the morning.
I like the way you think. They is a good answer for everything. You are too funny!

Yes, Why aren't you in bed, girl? No, wait, I know this one! Babe, hang in there. As Hunter S. Thompson so eloquently stated, "When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro." And, you know I'm a weirdness all-star, so I'll get this worked out.

Love,
Me

You have such a knack with words, are you putting this in your new sketchbook/journal? Hope so, your writing is wonderful.

I was in your position a few years ago. My husband and I lived in seperate states for about 18 months. I know how you feel so sending positive vibes to the powers that be for you :)

Sheila said...

Wow Sue, I wish I would've known you were throwing an all-night party - I would've come over and joined you, and kept you company, and we could've eaten all that food together! ;)
Be thankful you washed everything down with Coca-Cola, Root Beer and Ginger ale instead of RUM and coke, REGULAR beer, and GIN, because you'd have one heckuva hangover today! LOL!
Anyway, hang in there, and hope you get some rest today!
Hugs to you,
Sheila

I have some great leftovers I can bring to your next all night party! There's part of a cheese ball and some summer sausage. I have cute little crackers. Oh...there's part of a brick of cream cheese in there too and I have some great pepper jelly that's good on it. And I still have an unopened bag of those peppermint Hershey Kisses. I should probably save those for Jolene...hope she'll come to the party!!!

At least you ate some veggies!!!

Pity parties are ok so go ahead. Hope it is short lived and that all turns out ok. You and your hubby will be in my prayers.

Don't mean to be a party pooper,but you will pay sooner rather than later I fear..................

Okay dear anon...you ever heard about *artistic license*? I doubt that, in reality, I even had that much food in the house.
Oh I WISH I had a big box of EP chocolate! Nada...

Hope that makes ya feel better!
