Tiny stars

We have tiny glow-in-the-dark stars on the ceiling of our bedroom. They're barely visible in daylight, but snap off the lights in the evening, and our ceiling comes to life.

We put them there when our 25 year-old-niece was an infant. She learned to love those stars before she could talk. Who needs a pacifier when your room has stars.

I noticed those stars this morning at 4 a.m.  Someone was walking down the road in front of our house, and both dogs went berserk.

Normally I fall back to sleep instantly at that hour, but not this morning. I wasn't worried, I wasn't stressed, and I didn't have to go to the bathroom...but still I was wide awake.

Tonight I'm paying the price. It's barely 9 p.m. and listing to starboard.

It's time to say "Good night, sweet dreams."

I hope you have a remarkable weekend.

  2. It happens to me often. Then I need to catch up on my sleep or I get cranky... lol... I don't have stars in my ceiling though but there are some in the spare bedroom.
    Have a good weekend.

  3. I would have loved those ceiling lights when I was a kid. I hope you too have a great weekend. Take care.

  4. Always love the color you add. The idea of the stars was a good one, sounds nice.
    OH yeah, I like a guy with a little list!

  5. The Hurricane had stars on her bedroom ceiling when we lived in Illinois. I would like to have stars, but I bet they would drive Willy Dunne Wooters crazy.


  6. I would love to have tiny stars on my ceiling I think it is a cool idea

  7. I know that listing feeling only too well! I hope you get a great and refreshing sleep tonight!

  8. My son had those stars in his room when he was little...he loved them! Rest easy, my friend!
