    go to the restroom.
    well I am no different.
    waking from a sound sleep night before last sat upright in bed and feet hit floor and all of a sudden started singing...
    So bye-bye, Miss American pie.
    Drove my chevy to the levee,
    But the levee was dry.
    How weird is that.
    I listen to the oldies station while sewing and I think they are brain washing me...LOL...or I'm getting to old !!

    Darn, I'm not that artistic. All I do is either go to the bathroom,
    or wake to find myself standing in the front room, staring at the
    phone, wondering just who it was that I was planning on calling.
    So I just go back to bed, still wondering. All I got out of that trip was icy feet and a realization that I really should hide most of the cats' toys, which magically get all over the floor at night.

    I either go to the bathroom, read or play Breaking Bubbles or whatever it's called on my Ipaq.

    Last night it was to let my Bailey puppy out to go potty.
    I used to sleep all night without waking. Ah! The joys of having a new puppy! :roll: I don't mind... I go right back to sleep. And he is SO worth it! :-D

    I rarely get up in the middle of the night. However,the leader of my exercise class for seniors plays that song on her I-pod occasionally for some of our moves. It does stick in your head.

    Uh Oh! I love that song and every time I hear it it gets stuck in my head for days, sometimes even weeks. I'll be singing it all day now!

    visiting the 3 yr old grandson. he loves GLEE and their music is on a CD in the car. So, every trip we took around town we listened to GLEE's Christmas music. It is nearing March. Just glad we weren't going to Florida! (in Ohio now) lol

    I always wake up in the AM with a song stuck in my head. No rhyme or reason to it.

    I NEVER wake up during the night! I'm not kidding- I'm out without any pills or anything.
    However, I frequently wake up with a tune in my head that I hear over and over all day :)
    If it's something i like I'm happy, if it's some dumb TV jingle I'm not! lol

    The very worst of the mind bending songs is that one from Disneyland, "It's A Small World" which will run over and over and over in your mind till you begin to think it is sewed in there and there's no Jack the Ripper to get it out!!! It's a small world, after all.

    It's a small world, after all. After all after all....

    I get up, do my business and then find I can't get back to sleep. It seems to be the same time every night, no matter what my liquid intake in the evening. I usually get up for a couple of hours and quilt. Do some of my best quilting between 1:30 am and 3:30! Maybe its because the dog is asleep in his crate and not sprawled across my feet or blocking the ironing board!

    Unfortunately... anywhere between 2am and 4am either bathroom or DH snoring. If it's Dh I just go to the livingroom and sleep on couch.

    When he wakes up he's upset that I didn't kick him! I'm allowed to kick,push, and elbow him so he stops! Revenge is sometimes sweet! lol! :twisted:

    It happens quite often to me - just amazing what songs get stuck in ypur head - here in southern WV there is an atty who has a very catchy song that I have woke up to more than once and have heard more than one person complaining of it running through their heads at night - my comment to this is "if I were in busness and wanted a theme song I'd want the people who wrote for _________ to write one for me".
