What is it with sleeping?

It is almost ten o'clock which means that it's time for me to be making my lunch and going to bed. But I'm doing neither. I have blogsickness. It's like homesickness, but for writing. I've been way too busy recently to do any blogging, and I miss it very much.

Brad and I were talking on our way home from Wednesday night meeting tonight how absurd it is that the majority of the time we have together is spent in an unconscious state. We are awake all day and very much apart. In fact, we hardly see each other at all. And then we come home, have a few hours awake together, ( and if he works the night shift, it's more like half an hour) and then we fall asleep. It is so maddening! We are right next to each other all night, but we are totally unaware and unable to enjoy each other's company.

Sigh. Wish I had more time to write. But I should go visit my husband for a few minutes before I am reduced oblivion for fewer hours than I would like.

That's "reduced TO oblivion"...

You can tell I need a few more hours of oblivion...

I have long thought what an abolute waste of time it is to sleep! Just think how much more productive we could be, or in this case how much more time we would have to spend together, if only we didn't need to sleep. Big "if" I know...

Time lost to sleep has been frustrating to man for eons... ...recent studies in the transportation sector have shown that sleep deprivation is just as bad as being drunk! Maybe we could petition God to add about 8 more hours to our days-er-maybe we wouldn't want that if it delayed His return???

Wouldn't it be nice to only need an hour of sleep a night? And to have that much more time to enjoy life and spend time together and be outside, etc?
