I Tender My Resignation - Effective Immediately!

I am late posting today.  I have been dragging all day long....why you ask?  Well...Marcie and Kim hosted a Lock In for girls last night, ages 3rd grade and up, in our fellowship hall.  I helped...because I had done these before (20 years ago)....and thought..."if they can do can I."  I lasted until a little after 2 this morning....I am too old for this.  I had forgotten how much energy and squeals girls this age have.  Energy I don't have.  At 2 I told Marcie and Kim I was going home.  I called Frank before I came he wouldn't shoot me....and when he answered the phone I asked, "Whatcha doin'?"  He informed me..."SLEEPING."  I went home...and got in the bed around 2:30...and Frank lovingly waited until I was just about out before he rolled over, tapped me on the shoulder and asked, "Whatcha' Doin'?"  Point taken my dear!  I lasted longer than Frank thought I would.....the girls finally went to sleep at 5 this morning......I went back at 7 to wake everybody up so we could get them ready for their 8 a.m. Mommy pick up time.  I have to admit I delighted in noise as they began to stir.  It reminded me of one time when my son came in very six the next morning I decided to vacuum his room with our ultra noisy Electrolux.  Payback is hell!  After the girls were all gone...and the fellowship hall was put back in order....I told Marcie and Kim I quit!  I came home and Frank and I went to have breakfast, go the giant book sale, and Wal-mart....when we got home...11 ish....I died for the next 2 hours.  It was a tough day....and I am headed to the warmth and comfort of my bed right now.  Hope you all sleep well.  Who invented Lock-In's anyway?  Were they sadistic?  After last night I have decided that they are an event a deranged individual thought up.  Night all!  Sweet dreams!

LOL. You should have called.
I had a bad night of insomnia and couldn't sleep, even after taking an Ambien. Tossed and turned then FINALLY fell asleep around 5 am.
I am genetically wired for Sleep-Overs but I'm useless between 6 am and noon.

Bless you! My granddaughter had her first slumber party recently and my Daughter said, she didn't realize how much noise a few little girls could make. She said, squeals and giggles and chatter, oh my. I just smiled and nodded. It is payback time.

Oh my, you're a brave one! Nothing like a lock-in to remind you that you're getting old! :)
I think I would've killed CH if he had done that to me! I'm sure Frank thought it was hilarious! :D

Now that sounds like a lot of work and fun! Hope the kids had a great time. Hope you can catch up on your rest. Your a brave soul!
