The sun keeps trying to peek through heavy clouds, but yet again the clouds are winning. We had a nice bright sunny day for Mother's day and that was great. I hope your day was beautiful too.
I haven't posted anything for the last three days.
My mind seems to be a bit muddled lately; maybe it's the weather, or maybe it's because I am just plain tired.
I have often told myself that I don't need much sleep. I've got things to do and not enough daylight in which to do it; so I would "borrow time" from sleepy time hours.
For years it seems that I would go to sleep at 2am and sometimes later... only to awake at 6 and I seemed to be fine.
Working "part time" only meant that I took the paperwork home and would work way into the wee hours. "Full time" meant Double Time.
Working late nights on this little blog brought me such great enjoyment that I pushed the urge for sleep away just so that I could post.
But now this week.....I feel like burnt toast.
Caring for my Mom, taking care of two households, two kids and a husband has brought me to this point.
I am BONE TIRED.
NO matter how hard I try, I awake exhausted and spend the day feeling "absent".
In fact after Church on Sunday when my Husband suggested going out for a walk and then to Dinner...quite frankly ( now if you guys blab on me I'll just deny it) I kind of felt like saying..."Please, no walking, no strolling, no anything...I just want a nap!"
But I didn't. How could I? I went along with the idea and had a great time. But by the end of the day My bones felt wobbly and I was right back to feeling exhausted.
So I am taking a few days off.
Now, as a Mom you know that is virtually impossible. Laundry still needs to be done and who is going to feed this family? and God forbid that anyone else feed or bathe the dog.....and people can we talk about the toilet?....OK maybe not.
Now I need to go out and find my daughter an outfit for her band concert.
Wash a couple of loads of laundry.
Check on Mom and make sure to pick up some things for her at the store.
Mop the floor.
fold and put away laundry
Clean the office
balance "Unbalance-able" checkbook
pick up daughter from practise
......... etc etc etc
nothing spectacular, just regular "Mom stuff"
I think somewhere in there I can close my eyes for a bit.
Between 7-7:10pm It'll all about the ZZZZZZZ's!
Nope...have a Church group tonight. Maybe I'll take a nappypoo tomorrow.
It's ALL good! see you all in a few days! Unless The lottery smiles my way and then I'll be typing this little blog from Hawaii!
