My Favorite Time of the Day

Is now. It's 11:06, and really I should be in bed. Especially since sleep was lacking the last few nights.

But it's nights like tonight that I get a little me time in. Kids and Chris are asleep. I already crawled into bed, but as soon as the snoring started, I crawled out.

I check creative blogs - scrapbooking blogs, photography blogs, cooking ones. I lurk through facebook. I catch up on stuff that my normal life is just too busy to check out.

I'm sitting here in a peaceful house. Some laundry got done. Some dishes got done. Even the oven got cleaned. Life is good right now.

PS - when I was taking a pic on the i photo, I always check out to see what the kids have done. Every once in awhile they re-find the feature and take pics of themselves. Kinda cool to see what they do and how they act without a grown ups influence. The Braydon photo is recent, but the KJ photo is old. Both adorable in their own right I thought I would share them.

I hope you had a good night's rest. I LOVE my "me" time at night!

I do this a lot too. Stan falls asleep the second his head hits the pillow so there are a lot of nights I get back out of bed and come downstairs.

Cute pictures of all three of you ;)

I have a hard time going to bed and I have a hard time getting up!

I agree - early mornings or late nights when everyone is asleep are the best. If only I could stay up past 10 o'clock on Fridays. :)

I'm not a night person at all, but lately, I've found myself staying up a little later just to have some "me" time. What I'm actually doing is sitting down at my scrap desk and thinking through the details of the LO I'm working on so that the next day, when I get 5 minutes here or there, I know what direction I'm heading with it.
