I'm tired...

Tuesday, May 20, 2014

Ever have one of those days where you just want to go to bed at 6pm? I am having one of those days. Sometimes being a parent or maybe it is just being an adult is exhausting. It isn't even that I did a crazy amount of things today, but I think my To Do list is looming on my shoulders so much that it makes me tired just thinking about it.

Today I walked at 6am, came home and got myself and the kids ready. Dropped both kids off at a different schools at two different times, came home and started the crock pot, cleaned the house and folded laundry. Picked up Owen at noon and came home for lunch. Then while Owen took a tub I cleaned the bathroom. While Owen rested I did some computer stuff that I needed to do, bills, ordered a canvas bottom for the guinea pig play yard and updated my Amazon subscribe and save order for this month, etc.. Went to pick up Olivia and she and a friend came home. We spent time with the guinea pigs and then played outside. I did sit and read through a magazine while they played. Came in finished dinner and ate. As Mike was getting ready to put Owen to bed we realize that his sheets were wet from this morning (how did I not know this?) So right at bedtime I was changing sheets. Now I just finished picking up the house (which doesn't look like I cleaned it) and still have this sitting on my washer and dryer.....

Anyone want to put it away for me?
Seriously could we just buy new clothes? No, because that would not fit in our budget ;)
So, here is a peek at my May Calendar...does it make you tired just looking at it?
I would LOVE to say that June will be better, but it won't. Just in the first two weeks, we have a birthday party, trip to New York, dance recital, Girl scout camp out, school fair, preschool graduation and I am going to find time to see some friends! When the end of the year finally gets here, I am going to need 8 weeks to recover!
Now I am sitting here writing this blog...It is 8:39pm. The laundry is piled up, I now have sheets and blankets in the washer, I need to check some things off my list and Olivia is still not sleeping. She is currently whining for a band aid. I don't know about anyone else, but once I walk out of the room in the evening after putting them to bed, I lose all my patience. It is like the threshold of their room is my time clock, once over it, I am checked out. So unless there was some serious gushing blood I don't want to deal with it and even then I wouldn't want to deal with it, but I would like to think, I would be more sympathetic!
These boys have the right idea!
So there you have it...keepin' it real people. Tired and just trying to keep up the best I can! Even with all the chaos, I wouldn't change it for the world! Now back to what I should be doing so that I can go to bed. Tomorrow my day starts at 5am! Night all!
