Tim works…..a lot.

We both have full-time jobs to support our saltwater addiction, and you know the whole roof over our heads thing.  Details.

The difference is, most nights he comes home and works instead of watching TV with me or snuggling.  He actually forced me to start blogging so that I could keep him company in the office.  Ok, that last part is a lie, but he does enjoy me not constantly begging him to come snuggle the extra company.

He works in real estate, foreclosures to be all literal.  In order to make money in that dog-eat-dog world, you have to put in some extra hours.  Which includes late nights and even get this….weekends.

He has a lot on his plate, and even more on his mind.  Which would explain why he can never sleep.

I have a hard time falling asleep, you know with all of my compulsive list making.  But Tim can’t fall asleep OR stay asleep.  Poor thing.

And it has nothing to do with this…

Still sorry honey.

Recently, one of our friends told us about a miracle.  Hi Nikki!

We had never heard of Melatonin, but she told us it is all natural and it actually works.  As opposed to most things you read and then try and then wonder who thought it was a good idea in the first place.

I’m the skeptic, so Tim took it about a week before I gave into the peer pressure.  I was jealous, he was sleeping so soundly that now I was the one that had to get up to let the dogs out.

I needed in on that.

I don’t want to jinx us like I did our Dori.  So I am just going to say we give it two thumbs way up in the air.  We have been giving it out like candy….to dogs, family, even the kids across the street.

Please don’t take that literally, we do not condone drug dealing.  Even if it is all natural.

If you look around here you can tell we are clearly not endorsed or perked for saying nice things.  But we like to share things that we like.

And we like Melatonin.

Most nights we take it about a half an hour before we climb into bed, so it can work it’s relaxing magic.  Then when our heads hit the pillow, we are out.  I usually have to get up at least once to go potty, but Timbo is now sleeping through the night.

I’m not saying it’s a miracle…but that’s only because last time I bragged about something, it died.

Are there any other miracles out there that we don’t know about yet?
