Adventures in the Night

Huh? What? I haven't posted for more than a year? I don't know what you're talking about.

I know that this post's title may seem raunchy to some people... if that's t your case, then I apologize ahead of time. No raunchy... in this post.

The other night was a first. I sleepwalked. In my memory, I've never sleepwalked before. All that I can actually remember is kneeling down in front of Emily's side of the closet, FRANTICALLY SEARCHING THROUGH HER SHOES. That's right. I don't know remember why, but I was looking for one of her shoes that I was positive HAD A MICROCHIP PLACED IN IT; according to Emily, I called it a 'coin.' WHA--? I have no memory of what I was dreaming that had led me to look for this shoe, or why there was some kind of a chip inside a shoe, or why I was even looking for it. But that's what I was doing. Ok.

I must have woken Emily up, either by turning on the lamp at my bedside table or asking her where it was, because I'm pretty sure that her trying to calm  me down was what brought me to full consciousness. Well, somewhat of a  full consciousness. I think I had said, "I know it's here - I'm just trying to find it," and then stopped and starred at her shoes for a while. It was only after I realized that I had NO IDEA what I was doing that I slowly got back into bed and went back to sleep. Doo doo doo...

But really, what the hull?

At first I was really scared by it. Thought I was crazy for not realizing what I was doing until I was deep "in the act." But after thinking about it further... I want to sleepwalk more! Call me crazy, but this a whole new world of sleeping that I've never even experienced before! I've been missing OUT! I mean, I could be going on some crazy BAD-A** adventures: beating all sorts of Wii games, chasing Trevor Cat (SOON, thankfully!) and... yeah, stuff like that!! Right?!

Sleepwalking 101: SIGN ME UP!


  1. My husband used to sleep walk when he was a kid. One night he left the house and went down the street and around the corner to his friends house. They heard someone at the door trying to get in woke him up and took him home. So just make sure you can't get out on your own.

  2. LOL Ames! At least you come by it honestly, right? I mean, you have heard the stories of Dad's sleepwalking. If not, you really should hear about the time Dad thought he ate the devil... or the time he built an obstacle course... right in their bedroom. And apparently Chris has had full on conversations with me while I was asleep. At first, he actually thought I was awake, and now he does it for fun. And then we both about it in the morning. Good times... Love ya!

  3. PS those Wonka things look way more gross in the picture than they do in real life.
