Tuesday’s Tribute-sleeping in

What is it?
Well, we’ll tell you what it is NOTIt’s Not About YOU. It’s about SOMEONE ELSE. It’s our chance, each of us, to shine our light on someone else.

Huh? Whaddya mean?
We each spend a lot of time talking about ourselves and our lives, but we are also fairly GIVING people too…Tuesday’s Tribute is a chance to talk about OTHER people, OTHER blogs, OTHER lives.

Now’s your chance to shine your light on someone else.

I have some serious angels in my family.

A miracle occurred this morning.

I slept in until 8:45 am.

This has not happened in YEARS. YEARS. Many years.

All made possible by my sister who had half of my kids over for a sleep over and my mother-in-law who took the twins for the night.

Just to be nice.

Here’s to you, my miracle workers.

I’m so grateful.

    Oh I do love sleeping in. Unfortunately my interal clock does not allow such a thing. I wake with the sun and am always eager to start my day. Even when I want to go back to sleep I just lay there thinking of all the things I'm missing.

  4. what a treat!!! don't get used to it!

  5. Sleeping in is the best!!! We got to do a lot of that when my husband was on vacation:-)

  6. mommaof4wife2r says

    ahhhh 845…wow! i am standing in awe and wonder of how this could happen. but i am sooo happy for you!

  7. The Pink Potpourri says

    wow, congratulations! what a wonderful, special treat for you. i'll have to keep that in mind to do for my sisters when they have kids someday!

  8. Oh, I'm jealous!! Moose thought 6:30 was a good wake-up time. Luckily, he just cuddled for another hour. 🙂 Take a nap, too, if you can!

  9. :o) Good for you!!

  10. Grand Pooba says

    Hi! So I've been to your blog before (love it btw) but I just found out you're a friend of Heathers! She was my roommate in college! So anyway, I had to come back and say hello!

  11. Oh that is so fabulous!!!! Someday, someday I hope for that too.

  12. Sleeping in feels like the ultimate pampering. So glad you got to do that today!

  13. Oh how nice! I love sleeping in.

  14. Straight to Your Hart says

    Oh, what wonderful angels. Sleeping in is such pure bliss. Hope you had a splendid nights rest.

  15. Molly Doe says

    I am green. Very green. But underneath that jealousy is some happiness for you- and hope, that someday in my future, I might get to do the same.

  16. That is wonderful news to hear. I love sleep and I am not sure when it will happen for me. I know for sure next month. My little one is going to Grandma's and Grandpa's for a night. Just to let you know my Round Robin is this Friday. Hope you stop by. Have a great day.

  17. Oh my goodness! That IS a miracle!! How wonderful!

  18. Oh, how nice for you!!!

  19. That's great news.
    Yesterday my kids slept in till 10am.
    I still don't know why, unless they secretly stayed up and played till late the night before.
    I kept checking on them to see if they were still alive.

  20. FAB.U.LOUS!! That is the biggest treat in the world these days. Here's to more sleeping in mornings…hopefully!

  21. Why the other day, I gave up. See how giving I am?

  22. Sleeping in? What's that? I think I remember doing something like that pre children…

  23. Stu Pidasso says

    Family can be soooooooo cool……sometimes. Hope you enjoyed your mini-vacation.

  29. Kathy B! says

    Wow! That's like heaven on earth. Hang onto that high as it won't be repeated in a looong time (if your house is anything like mine…)

  30. Well I bet you felt well-rested!!!

  31. Casey's trio says

    Oh you lucky girl! I was just standing at the sink brushing my teeth dreaming of a day when I can sleep in again….seriously. And 8:45 is totally sleeping in for me these days. SO JEALOUS!!
