Lack of sleep is catching up with me... BIG TIME!
I have not slept well in 20 years...
You know, since I became a mother.
Now, I just seem to struggle to fall asleep and stay asleep. I frequently end up waking up and reading or some thing for a couple of hours and then falling back asleep for an hour or so before I need to be up and at 'em.
I do fine most of the time. I have just gotten used to it. Today, however, I am really tired... really, really tired.
I look around the house and there is so much I should be doing, but all I want to do is close my eyes.
The kids are running around like maniacs and the laundry is growing by the minute...the kitchen needs a good scrubbing, the kids need one too, and I need to make dinner, clean up and get everyone out the door for church tonight... oh, yeah... I also need to get Miranda over to her drivers ed class.
Maybe I should start drinking coffee!
