Its Raining, Its Pouring, the Old Man is Snoring

When I was younger I was the heaviest sleeper. The kind of sleeper that wakes up in the same position as when they went to sleep, the kind that never ever EVER woke up once I was asleep. The kind that would sleep so deeply that I would talk and mumble a lot.

One time when I was really little I did something like yell out "Dad! DAD!!" and when he came in and asked what was wrong, I would mumble, "never mind..." This went on three or four times, until I'm sure he wanted to punch me in the face.

When I was 12 and went to 'Girls Camp' the first time, they tried to wake me up to go on a morning run and swim and got stuck into talking to me for about five minutes. "Well...I really WANT to go, but I'm just so tired..." until I finally woke up and said "What? Oh, no I want to sleep." And they left me alone, I'm sure wanting to punch me in the face.

One time when I was in high school I had a computer in my bedroom and my sister came in to use it after she had been out that night. I was sleeping, and the click clacking of the keyboard was making me crazy. Until I snapped on her and just started yelling. I think I called her some bad names. I was so out of it crazy that my mom didn't even say anything, I think I scared her. I chased my sister out of my room and went back to bed. She, I'm sure, wanted to punch me in the face.

Then I got married and had my first kid and I've never slept again. And now I want to punch myself in the face.

The end.


  1. Your face punching slash sleeping habits are very funny.

  2. BAH! I am doing that ugly scream-laughter right now....


    I have never felt an earthquake. 'Cause I always sleep right through them. And I mumble a LOT. At girl's camp I was given the "No, No, NO! Sleeptalker" award because one night I chanted that phrase for over an hour. Darren used to try and have conversations with me while I was half coherent to make me mad, guessed it...I once punched him in the face.

    And that's the gospel truth.

  3. BAH!!!! HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I don't usually want to punch myself in the face, it's more of a desire to beat my head against a brick wall.

    I love you Mel.

  4. LOL. That's a lot of face punching. Glad none of them happened...:)
    I love to sleep. And I hate my Alarm Clock. The guy wakes me up all the time.

  5. Oh my gosh Sheryl, you seriously punched him in the face?!?! Thats awesome!! HAHAHAHAHA!

  6. Love the title of your blog. And rain...I live in the hoo.

  7. I have never been a very sound sleeper. And YUP, you can kiss a good nights complete sleep away---cause even when your kids become teenages, they'll keep you up at night with sleepovers, or just not getting home on time.....then you'll be tending grandkids, and watch over them like a hawk all night......then you become old and have to pee 2 or 3 times a night.
    I could punch myself in the face.

  8. ha ha ha!!! LOL!!!

    my sister stephanie was just like this! one time she fell asleep while we were watching an action movie and she sat up and started screaming "EVERYONE GET DOWN!" and then started shooting a fake gun and making machine gun sounds.

    it was so hilarious because girls can not for the life of them make machine gun sounds!

  9. I feel sorry for you but this is funny so I'm laughing instead.
