Saturday Six

BWS tips button

How many hours per night/day do you sleep?  Lately, with sick kids, I don't get much. A horrifying lack of sleep that leaves me not sure what day it is or what time it is. I get out of bed planning for when I'll next be able to lie down. But, usually, about 6-7 hours. Even though I think I need about 10.

Night owl or morning person? Definite night owl! Which is why I never get enough sleep! But, Hubs and I need to spend time together after the kiddos go to bed. You know, watching tv together.

What do you wear to bed? This totally depends on how tired I am, what I wore that day, and if I took a shower before bed. Anything from the clothes I wore that day to my bathrobe, to a t-shirt of Hubs's, or cute pjs.

Sleep crutches? (Sleep with a radio, fan, t.v. on? Have to have something particular in order to doze?) TV on- though one of us gets up and turns it off in the middle of the night. Glass of water and blackberry beside the bed....though not close enough to each other that my bb is in any danger. Learned that one the hard way.

Do you remember your dreams when you wake up? Usually only when I'm pregnant because those are really crazy, bizarre dreams. Though, if I have one of those when I'm not pregnant, I instantly think that I am pregnant.

Any strange stories about sleepwalking/talking or anything of that nature?  I used to mutter things in my sleep. Haven't in a while- or maybe Hubs is too busy snoring away to pay attention and make fun of me for it. My college roommate and I used to keep a "quote board" in our dorm room of funny things that we or our friends said and sometimes the things she would say in her sleep would make it on there. Like the time she sat up in bed and told me, "I have to give my long-distance pillow to the President."

It's been a long time since I've posted anything other than PR-stuff on the weekends! Click the Saturday 6 button to join in with Boobies, Babies & A Blog and The Zombie Housewife.

Hope you all have a wonderful Fall weekend!

I'm so glad to hear that you sometimes sleep in the clothes you wore that day. I do the same, and I'm sure some people would think that's really awful.

I have a sleeptalking/walking story or two, LOL

You should of kept track of all the sleep talking. Some woman is making money of recording her husband's.

I always sleep in my jammies, or nothing. But, if it makes you feel any better, I often sleep in the jammies that I have had on ALL DAY because I was too lazy to even bother getting dressed. :P

Sleep hmm, not much these days. Sam getter bigger is hard on my arm (suffer from constant and loss of motion). Night is when the pain is the worst so it's hard to get comfortable :P

I sometimes (okay, maybe even usually) sleep in the clothes that I wore that day.

I'm lazy.

I also stay up way too late (usually reading blogs)

I need about 10 hours, and I am a night person as well so god help me whenever I do have children.

I love the quote board idea.

As the single Mom of two I am sooo happy if I get 6 hours. Usually it somewhere in the 5 1/2 range. So not enough. And my crutch these days is Ambien :-)

I am finding the older I get the less I sleep. Right now I am averaging about 5-6 hours. I know it is not enough, but there is so much to get done in the day/night. I am hoping at some point I can make it up!
I talk in my sleep a lot. Both girls do also, my son not all. It must be the girl hormones. My husband and I can sit in bed and hear our girls talk- pretty funny when you get over the strange factor. I talk the most when I am pregnant and my husband says I am downright mean - though I totally deny it!

I'm spoiled now that I get 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep...oh so nice! I usually sleep in a t-shirt and short in the summer and tonight I am in flannel bottoms and a long sleeve top since I froze last night. If I hadn't been so tired, I would have put on a sweatshirt!

I don't think I have gotten more than 6 hours of sleep a night since before I had kids... Hubs on the other hand.. The kids ALWAYS GET ME UP!!!

I was a childhood sleepwalker. Strange phenomenon.

I hope you get back to your 10 hours of sleep soon. Sleep deprivation is no good!

Sorry about your sick kids! I used to be a night owl, but something weird happened because I suddenly happen to be very much a morning person. I find myself enjoying being up and about at 5:30 AM on a Saturday! Not sure how long this will last, though :)

I love what your college roomie said--that's hilarious!

As far as I know, I'm a night tosser and turner, but I've never sleepwalked before. I think that would freak me out if I saw someone do it!

Fun post.

Sleep talking can be quite entertaining--sleep walking (like my brother does) can be a little spooky.
