Oh yes, sorry. I'm a bit foggy......must have gotten too much sleep this morning: since I didn't get out of bed until after 11 am!!!
That's right. I let the coffee Left Brain brought me at 9 am grow cold, untouched (that wasn't so easy actually), and stayed in bed. Now don't hate me too much. While it was true that I stayed all comfy under the covers while LB wrangled the children, I didn't really sleep much. You see, he has no problem sleeping when they run amuck-amuck-amuck throughout the house; as a shift worker, he is used to it and can tune it all out. Believe Me - You would not believe what he can tune out. I kinda admire it, kinda want to hit him over the head for it, ya know? So while I lay there, listening to the yelling, running, fighting, begging, demanding, crying and tried to go back to sleep, 2 questions kept nagging my brain:
1) This is pointless, they can't be quiet ever - should I just get up?
and 2) can you really impart wisdom through use of a iron skillet applied to the back of the head? Because I am willing to try and have an available test subject.
And just when I thought I couldn't take it anymore, despite being so tired I thought he might actually have to pull me out of the bed, I heard those words every mom dreams of hearing, the ones that give you strength to carry on.......or bury back under the covers in this case:
I am not sure, but I may have heard angels singing as I finally, and finely drifted back to dreamland.
And now here I am after a nice shower, a quick trip to the grocery store, a napping baby and fresh, HOT cup of coffee......catching up with you fine folks. And while a day at the spa, or out with some friends might have been more enjoyable, as a busy mom I know, sometimes you just have to take what you can get.
So how has your week started?
