Why is it when you go to bed at night and are trying to go to sleep, but have thoughts going through your head, you get such brilliant ideas to blog about and the next morning they are gone! Just phhht, right out the window.

I suppose you could put a pad and pen on your nightstand to jot them down, but that would seem to much like work. Once I get all tucked in my covers I dont want to get out from under them to write something. Im the one who sleeps with the bedroom window open all winter...once I get all warmed up, I dont want to move!

Everyone have a good Thanksgiving? Anyone venture out shopping yesterday? I went to play poker Thanksgiving night with a few friends and they were talking about getting up at 3 am to go shopping!! I cant imagine. I had a turkey hangover yesterday....full of triptophane....just relaxed all day. It was a great Thanksgiving, and now Im waiting for Santa Claus to arrive!

Pixie done good on your blog! I want to stick around and have some hot cocoa! Happy Holidays, sweet cakes!

I get those great ideas in the car but by the time we get home I can't remember them. We both need one of those little voice recorders that start when you talk.

Hey Catch! You redecorated again! I like the new look but I sure hate to think about having to go Christmas shopping and would never even dream of shopping on "Black Friday".
I know what you mean about thinking up great ideas to blog about and then they just vanish from your mind before you can write them up. I do that all the time too.
Glad you stopped by this morning and I hope you had a great Thanksgiving.

No black friday shopping for me. We had a great Thanksgiving and now I am digging out Christmas decorations. I will be putting up the tree sometime this weekend. Always love the look on your blog. So festive this time. xoxoxoxo

That's why the notebook and marker are next to yer bed, gal.
Use a marker, like one of those sanfords, cause it's dark enough y'all won't need yer glasses.
And, y'won't be fumblin' fer a pencil sharpenner or such...

Jot down the idea, go back to sleep, qand just hope it's not too cryptic when you get up and read it in the morning.

EZ said...

ho ho ho catch-how many shopping days till Christmas?? hehe
I went to Staples at 5:30am to get a deal on a flash drive and a hard drive-I am a sick person.
Yeah turkey hang over- blahhh- where's the beef???
those grandkids sure do have the cutest dimples. wonder where they got them? The milkman maybe....
take care

Love your new look.

Theres no way you could get me to go shopping on black Friday.

Mr. Fabulous said...

That's what I do for ideas with the book--pad and pen by the bed.

That's how I got the idea for Ted, the 237 pound giant crime fighting cockroach :)

You know, I do the same thing- so often! It drives me crazy when I have these great thoughts, and then don't do anything with them! Anyway, I had a great Thanksgiving, I hope you did as well! :0)

Shaymus said...

hey I like the xmassy look of your blog...but its a bit hard to read some of the posts

Christine said...

We went shopping, but not at 3am!
I don't like fighting the crowds!
Santa was allready at the Mall!
My husband's the one who can sleep with the window open, says he can't sleep with it shut because it's too stuffy, but then I freeze, so I just steal his covers!HA!
My blogging problem is with the kids stopping me right in the middle of something, because they need my help. I lose my train of thought, and have to start over and over and over, because they can't all ask me at the same time. By the time I get to posting, I forget what I was going to post about! I'll have to put a pen and paper by the computer!!

Remiman said...

Catch,
Had a great time at our friends home on Thanksgiving.
My shopping will be confined to the internet. Even my wife has succumbed to online shopping.
I get up at 0330, but certainly not to go to Wally's world.
I do have a pencil and paper with me at all times! I've got CRS and it can be controled by writing lists, and ideas immediately as they come to mind. However if I get a creative thought after I'm in bed...goodnight ;-)

I would never get out of bed at all if the window was open all winter, you're tough! I would rather be flogged than to shop on black friday, but Pap left at 1:30 to attempt to fetch home a computer for Princess at a very cheap price. He was the 160th person in line, they had 50. Don't we have laws about bait and switch?

Shelli said...

You don't have to get out of bed, just reach over and grab it from the nightstand.

I had a good Thanksgiving but slept through most of it and the next day, too.

Lori's Minute said...

Had a great Thanksgiving! Hubby and daughter went out shopping for about two hours and got home safe and sound. I would never go out where there are crowds....

NMOTB said...

i just love your chritsmas blog!!! lol @ turkey hangover!!!! Take care

:P fuzzbox said...

Glad to see that you had a great Thanksgiving.

Michelle said...

I hate when that happens! I think about things to blog about, don't write them down because I'm sure I'll remember them later and of course I don't!

I stayed home on Friday - I am not one for getting up at the crack of dawn, fighting crowds and waiting in long lines - no thank you! My in-laws do it every year - tradition for them. They got up at 230 that morning to get to Wichita Falls by 5am for the store openings (they live over an hour away). They got 90% of their shopping done, so good for them, but I'm sleeping in LOL
