Baa Baa Black Sheep

Last night I was having a very difficult time falling asleep, likely due to the four hour nap that I’d so smartly taken, waking up just mere hours before my usual bedtime. I tossed and I turned and I finally decided that counting sheep was the way to go. I lay on my back and counted, slowly in time with my breathing. Out loud, to annoy Derek, of course.

Derek, in turn, decided to help me in my sheep-counting ventures by playing the role of wool-covered smelly creature. Between each number he would let out a loud, “baaaa.” This, however, was simply not convincing enough, and he felt he needed to add in the act of leaping over the fence. Me being the fence. The problem was that these sheep were particularly lazy (he says clumsy) and had a bad habit of not clearing the “fence,” landing instead as jabs into my arm.

Needless to say, I didn’t get much sleep last night. Baaaa.

  1. What a goober. 🙂

    I get to see you in two days!!! The laptop is broken, so I’m not on the computer much, I will call you tomorrow and we’ll chat.

    Miss you!!!

  2. Caryn- I do that, but then I get too into it and I want to start to write it down… and then I’m up and writing and it never works out well.

    dawnmarie- Yeah, we’re a little odd.

    Vegas- Oh, usually! I love bedtime- it’s my favorite time to annoy my husband. (That’s not true, I actually hate bedtime. But it really is my favorite time to annoy Derek.)

    Megs- Woo, tomorrow! We have lots to talk about. 🙂

    Toni- Hehe, yeah. Not so much.

    Sherry- Awww! Hey, I could tell you all about how loud he snores if that would help. Truly, it’s amazing that I can sleep through it at all!

  3. I had so much fun with you the other night, and we missed you last night. How was the concert? Incredible I hope for what you paid for tickets. 🙂

  4. Aimee- For sure.
