It's 9:58PM here and my "get to bed" alarm will go off in 2 minutes. If you see me here later, scold me! Good night!

We'll be keeping an eye on you.   :skeptical:   :lol:

Oh, this is cute! I didn't realize it was for *all* of us. No, I'm not going to bed yet (I wish!)...
In conclusion, I can leave you with no better advice than that given after every sermon by Msgr Vincent Giammarino, who was pastor of St Michael’s Church in Atlantic City in the 1950s:

    “My dear good people: Do what you have to do, When you’re supposed to do it, The best way you can do it,   For the Love of God. Amen.”

Did you get some rest?

Fell asleep around 3:30. Thanks for all the suggestions, friends. Rosaries are the best sleep aide. And think about it. If I die in my sleep, it's nice to know that my last words were ones of prayer.

I once told a monk that I felt very bad because I'd always fall asleep at night praying the Rosary.  He said, "What better way to fall asleep than in the arms of your Mother?"

Going. Really going. Goodnight all. Get some decent sleep. You have NO idea what tomorrow may bring.

Awww. :) St. Therese often used to fall asleep during her mental prayer. She called it "the prayer of St. Peter." Lol.

Ok. So I'm going to bed early. Hopefully I'll actually sleep through. I wake up about 3 hrs after falling asleep. Then spend hours trying to fall back to sleep. Good time to pray, but sometimes I get too frustrated after a while of trying. Not asking for remedy, just complaining. Sometimes I can get very personal with God. But usually I just get caught up thinking about all that is worrisome and it takes forever to shut it off. Many times I watch the sun come up. Grrrrrrr...

I hear you..my brain does that too.  I wish the mind came with an "off" switch!

Getting ready to go to bed, within the next hour or so...

Good night!

Ok. Lynne do we have permission to tell you to get the crap to bed if we see you here in an hour fifteen?
