A Sleepy Day
Paige (4) started attending the morning preschool class this week. She now goes four days (Mon. - Thurs.) a week instead of only two. Today is day three and I can't wake her up. She is pooped.

Mom is pooped too! I fell asleep last night with Paige at 7:30 on my bed. No one came and woke me up, so around 2:30 this morning I woke up, my body was done sleeping.

I folded a whole bunch of laundry, picked up the house, and did some paperwork. It was great. A very productive time.

The only problem is that it is now 7:00 a.m. and I want to go back to bed. However, there are children to take care of and take to school. Bummer. (OK, did that just date me?)

I also have a workman showing up this morning to fix a 12 x 12" hole in my upstairs drywall. How, you may ask, did you get a hole that size in your wall?

Well, you see, my wonderful husband decided to wrestle his very large 14 year old son in the hallway. For fun.

The force of there bodies hitting the wall shattered it, creating the very large hole.

As we may be putting our house on the market in a few weeks I thought it would be wise to fix the hole asap.

I'm pretty sure a large hole in the hallway is not a feature most home buyers are seeking.

I think I'm going to lay on the couch and watch American Idol and Dancing with the Stars while my nice workman fixes the hole.

Just think about the story he'll have to tell his wife when he gets home about the crazy lady with all the kids who lays on her couch all day and watches reality TV shows.

Should be a good conversation at dinner tonight.

axYou are so funny! Enjoy the couch. With all the work you did in the middle of the night, you earned some couch time!

GRIN! My kids came home to me dozing on the couch yesterday - they thought I was sick. Nope, just tired from three nights in a row of really cruddy sleep. I felt guilty, but also was waaaay too tired to get up and fight it! Tired beat guilty, 1-0!

Hey Julie, I've done the same thing numerous times. The whole day you end up feeling sluggish. However, it's amazing what you can accomplish in the wee hours without any interruptions!

Thanks for visiting me again! There is a couple from my church who are planning to adopt 2 kiddos from ethiopia. I guess when you have 5, what's 2 more? Seriously, I would not be stressed to adopt 2 right now because I feel that once you get past 3, it's all the same...managing chaos!

I will keep atrack of your journey too!

That's funny - our boys and their Dad wrestle all the time - and we have the dings in our walls to prove it, too. Just not as big as your "ding" LOL. Hope you get some rest tonight!

Ah, what I wouldn't give to be a couch potato right now. I shouldn't complain, I was up late last night with Hubby watching 3 episodes of Battlestar Galactica, we are so addicted to this series, so I got my TV time in. But then I had to get up at 5:30 AM with Baby Bug (our 6 month old foster daughter) and now I'm dragging.
