13 Sentences Why I Could Not Sleep Last Night:

1. For the past 3 nights the television in my bedroom turns itself on at 9:53pm; I wake up and shut it off but it takes me awhile to get back to sleep because having the tv turn on by itself scares the Bejeezus out of me. (Does anyone have a clue as to how this could be happening?) (Is my house possessed?)

2. When I finally fell asleep (at 11:00pm) my lovely daughter Jen, whose bedroom is directly under mine, called my cellphone.

3. I answered it thinking it was an emergency because everyone that knows me knows that I am fast asleep by 9:00pm each and every night.

4. The emergency was that she had received an email that was sent to her from a woman scorned in Tennessee about a man that allegedly stole some money from her and Jen wanted to know if I knew who this guy was....I had received the same email earlier and deleted it because even though I do know the man involved, it's not my business so I'm staying out of it.

5. At about 3am I started to fall asleep again but had to wake up at 5am to get ready for the day.

6. When I got back home from working out at the gym it was 7:40am and I decided to jump back into bed and get some more sleep; I figured I could wake up at 9am and still have enough time to get to work before 10am.

8. Just as I was falling asleep, my son, Dave, twin to Jen, knocks on my door.

9. He's been complaining that his clothes keep disappearing, this morning was no different....last night he laid out his clothes for today on other bed in his other bedroom (he uses 2 bedrooms).

10. This morning the clothes were gone! (Again, is my house possessed?)

11. Now I am baffled as to who is stealing his clothes, but it is happening, he's not crazy, the clothes are missing.

12. That was it for my nap.

13. I thought my life would be so much easier when my kids grew up....I was wrong, very wrong.

Great day. You mean I wasn't the only one up last night? But I tend to get clogged up at some point during the night because the windows are open - hubby does it while he's sleeping after work from 4 p.m. to 11 p.m. - and it does me in every time. So I was up at 3 a.m. knowing the alarm was going to go off in 2 1/2 hours and I was pissed aboout it. Still tired now.

Now, it is odd your TV is doing it's own thing but are you sure there is no alarm accidentally set in some area of the TV operations menu that you weren't aware of?

And if your son's clothes are walking away, for goodness sake, where are they ending up?

Very strange indeed.

Keep us posted on the missing clothing mystery!

There is no such thing, I am convinced, as getting away from the kids' problems!

Ha ha ha... ROFL... T, you are so funny. And now I know why you wanted to trade me houses!

And dangit again... sorry I missed you on my blog chat on Wednesday. Thursday I wasn't on all day until about 8pm. So I had to stop by here for sure and get my giggles.

AND I still need to send you some pics...

Love ya!

I don't know what to say about the missing clothes, but my in-laws have had the same problem with their TV. They said it's some kind of short in the wires or something. (His brother works with electronics.)

So, weird as it is, I'd say no. Your TV is not possessed. As for the clothes, maybe a prank by his sister?
