    Very complete list — and I also struggle with sleep because:
    – the cat sits on my head
    – the cat beats up the other cat
    – the cat sticks a claw up my nose to tell me he’s hungry

    Something tells me my cat is my problem.

      Ha! Excellent analysis… and yet, CATS RULE!

    Yay! I love when you do lists.
    I scarily relate to no.s 2, 4, 8, 10 (rarely, but I guess I can be greedy lol), 16, 17, 19, 25… (at this point I feel we may have been twins who were separated at birth).
    OMG I wish I had no. 5.
    7 & 12 – so funny, I literally posted about Social Media evils and addiction the other day… reading my mind 🙂
    14 – replace meteors with zombies and I’m in haha.

      My good friend in Australia, hello! We think – and laugh – alike!

    LOL at celebrity baby names! And I was about to get offended about your dig at my politcal party until you turned out to be an equal opportunity digger. So it’s all good.

      Ha! I’m totally an equal opportunity offender! Thanks for dropping by 🙂

    Ha, ha! I can never coordinate reasons one and two.

    Insomnia. Insomnia keeps me awake. It’s one of those uninvited visitors that won’t go away.

    I love the idea of reading the bedtime story to your inner child. Do it!

    Paper plates. The ones I bought for a baby shower that:
    a) didn’t match the theme
    b) I didn’t have enough of
    c) were the wrong size (Lunch plates? Dinner plates? Who knows?)

    Followed by–forks. The ones I bought for a baby shower that:
    a) didn’t match the theme
    b) I didn’t have enough of
    c) were the wrong size (Dinner forks? Cake forks? Who knows?)

      Ha! Social and special event disasters are always great fodder.

    That Kim Richards is a tough nut to crack!
