Cuddles and coffee …

I’m not sure if there is a better way to start my day than the way I did this morning. It was certainly MY calm before MY storm, HA!

Well, I hope you all have a day that starts with cuddles and coffee!!!

Twitchy and tired …

After a busy day and a run that left my legs a bit out of sorts I am ready to call this day OVER.

Well, I hope you all had a day that didn’t leave you twitchy and tired!!!

Run down …

At the end of another busy day we found ourselves out to dinner AGAIN last night. UGH. To put it into perspective, Libs didn’t finish up at school until 7 pm and she probably could have stayed longer if I had let her. Again, UGH.

Sitting at dinner last night I was abundantly thankful that I didn’t have to cook. I really don’t like eating out during the weekdays, but I was so tired and hungry that I didn’t care. I’d even been feeling a bit sketchy earlier in the day too. Almost like I was about to come down with something. I dismissed it because I’ve been so busy and stressed these past few weeks. Add in the poor night’s sleep that I had the other day when Reese had her growing pains and it wasn’t a good equation. I, however, chose to remain in complete denial. Bad idea. Again, again, UGH.

As we were enjoying our not-homemade blessing of a dinner last night, I caught a glimpse of something on Reese’s face. SNOT. Her nose was dripping ever so slightly. I instantly began claiming that the chill in the air both inside and outside the restaurant must be causing it. As she began to drip more I moved into accusing allergens as the culprit. This was clearly a desperate stretch since the child doesn’t even have allergies! By the time we got home Reese was in full drip mode. Somehow I still managed to give her a bath, dry her hair and get her into bed a few minutes before her bed time. Moments like that, I feel like I have magical powers.

Unfortunately the magic wore off pretty quickly. My poor baby girl was not having a good nights sleep. I rubbed her back, repositioned her and cuddled her all night long. At around 4 am she seemed to be more comfortable than she had been all night and was sound asleep. I was SO THANKFUL!

So what did I do? Sleep, right?!?! NOPE. I got up and rummaged through paperwork. Really Jennifer, REALLY?!?! Oh and I forgot to mention that at some point in the darkness of night, my denial officially wore off. I began to feeling sniffly too.

1000 times, UGH.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you don’t feel run down!!!

Playing hooky …

I don’t like to leave the house after December 23. My family will attest to this. We usually host Christmas Eve so this works. I much prefer being cozy at home than fighting crowds and traffic. But that means I have to have ALL my holiday shopping and errands done a day before. This is usually not difficult for me. But this year I have failed miserably! So much so that my family is rallying to help me get it all done. Sid even decided not to work at our shop today which is HUGE. This kid never misses work! And I appreciate her help even HUGE-ER.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you feel like playing HOOKY!!!

Taking a moment for myself …

Ever have one of those crazy, nutso, busy days where all you need to keep going is a shred of time for yourself just to breathe? Yep, me too. And I’m shamelessly taking it!

Well, I hope you all have a day where you take a moment just for yourself!!!
