Caution: Run-on sentences ahead.
It’s just before midnight, but by the time I finish writing this, wrapping up some emails, putting a load in the dryer, and washing up for bed- which usually gives me a brief second wind, it could easily be 1 a.m. which has become my normal bedtime for the last month, despite my best intentions. And then, when I finally hit my pillow, burrow into my covers, close my eyes and breathe a final sigh of relief, well that’s the cue for any one out of my 4 Aumies to wake up and need mama.
Not papa mind you. Mama. Like even if I switch to my husband’s side of the bed, it does not throw off their sense of mama. Or maybe I mean scent of mama because the taking a regular shower thing has also been on the back burner.
Last week I shared a list of ten tasks on my to do list. I crossed off half and tripled what was left…you do the math because at the stroke of midnight (now), my brain turns back into mush and I’m not sure when my fairy godmother’s due back. She has in fact been replaced with a daily 4 p.m. pot of coffee.
Seriously, this weekend I will put concentrated effort in early to bed early to rise and try to re-establish good sleeping habits. Everything gets better when I sleep enough…my parenting, my skin, my ability to deal with not accomplishing my never-ending to do lists.
So, I may or may not blog this week, but…
I hereby give myself (and you!) permission to take a blog break. No guilt. No shame. All you have to do is:
