I think I have Narcolepsy

What is my problem? The short answer is I have a 2 yr old, about a 45 minute commute to and from work, and I get up between 5:15 and 5:30 every week day.

But, it’s causing me REAL problems. One in particular.

I can’t seem to stay awake for Ghosthunters. As you well know from blogs past, I’m a reality tv whore. And Ghosthunters is the pinnacle for me. I have a huge crush on Steve Gonsalvez and minor crushes on Jason and Grant. (Notsomuch on Steve Tango, but I’d hang out with him if it got me closer to the other guys.)

We got home late last night after being at the MIL’s house for pizza with my SIL and two of her kids. Mini went straight to bed and I sat upstairs in the office playing Majhongg (or however the heck you spell it) until I was sure he wouldn’t start crying for me once I got downstairs. By the time I got my face washed and had changed into my jimmies (I call them jammies, but spellcheck doesn’t agree), it was already ten after nine. I’m okay with that because usually the first 10 of Ghosthunters is just about them touring the place and setting up their equipment.

What I’m NOT okay with is the fact that I wait all week to watch this show, only to fall asleep at 9:35. It’s not FAAAAAAAAIIIIIIIRRRR. It happens EVERY. SINGLE. WEEK.

Seriously, I fall asleep before blue hairs have time to make it back to the retirement home after the 4pm Senior Special at Denny’s. Maybe I should start eating crack for dinner so I can stay awake.

I’d prefer to avoid drug addiction, so if anyone knows of any alternatives…I’m all ears.


Lipstick said... drug of choice is caffeine. I'm not picky-it can be hot chocalate, diet Dr. Pepper, caffeine tablets. It all works. Crazy enough I still collapse in bed and fall asleep.

Thanks for visiting me today!

Um....DVR. Then catch up during the mini's nap? I am at a loss on this one.
