Sleepless Night

Sleepless night makes for a sleepy day. I guess this is one of the wise things said to me when I was a young girl. Well, brilliant. Bravo for whoever first said this. It keeps playing through my head as I toss and turn, toss and turn.

Along with this continual sentence that I keep repeating, a stack of books by my bed are talking to me, a to-do list is growing very very long, how I can be nicer, stronger, healthier, and more creative are creeping in and how no matter what time I drift off, I will be wide awake at first light. I stink at sleeping in. I envy those of you that can sleep till lunch time.

Now, if I could only get something done, but the house is quite. Everyone is asleep. I can not accomplish much and be brilliant at this hour. So, I will check my wordpress, email, twitter, bubblews, Pinterest , work on my writings, and add to my lists on color note.

To those of you struggling to sleep, don’t forget all those helpful words we were taught as young children. Like my sleepless night, sleepy day one. A couple come to mind- Close the door, you weren’t born in a barn.  And, Don’t make that face. You know it will stick that way forever. Please leave a comment if you have some helpful words. Sleep tight, don’t let the bedbugs bite. Always greatly disliked that one! So, wakey wakey, eggs and bakey!

68 Days Go Alexander!

Getting armed with notebooks, pens, calendars, menu’s, decorating ideas, and other blogs here on WordPress.

I have started a board on Pinterest  labeled Marines The Few The Proud.  I love that people share their ideas for letters and gift boxes and encouragement all around the world on Pinterest and other sites.  Go ahead and check out my Pinterest and my FacebookJennifer New 

Gary found a very wonderful, helpful, informative site usmcgradparrisisland.org.  I can not wait to have some alone time  to learn from this dear lady that worked so hard to inform us parents about graduation day at Parris Island.  The notebooks and calendars are so I can write everything down that is starting to swirl through my head during the day and while I sleep.

Many prayers being sent up, but much more blessings being sent down.

Jennifer love and happiness
