The happening place to be …

I was tired today. REALLY tired. So much so that I actually took a nap. It wasn’t very long and super broken but it was definitely valuable. And it was a happy nap too. I say that because of the two dreams I had. The first dream I had was of dolphins playing in our backyard. They were so loud and having a ball! I worried that they would disturb our neighbors. I admit, this one is strange on all sorts of levels. The second dream I had was about a lively party going on in our backyard. People were talking and laughing. They were having a great time! I’ll be honest, I have no idea what got into my head that explains why I would dream of our backyard TWICE in one nap. But I did. I guess my subconscious dream-state mind thinks our backyard is fantastic … and aquatic animal friendly.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you end up in the most happening place to be!!!


Thanks, but no thanks …

I went to sleep last night completely exhausted. It was a LONG day. Then l had insomnia. PERFECT timing as usual (note sarcasm). I decided to finally give up on sleep at around 4:30 this morning. I should be happy I guess. I get more hours in my day to enjoy, right?!?! I should feel lucky. Sorta?

Well, I hope you all have a day where you completely understand the saying "thanks, but no thanks"!!!

No pajamas allowed …

Despite getting home at an ungodly hour yesterday Libs attended a sleepover at a friends' house. She really wanted to go, so I let her. My only hesitation was that she also had to be at tennis by 7:45 this morning. Her friend lives across town from us so we knew that this would challenging. Since both of us live by the mantra that SLEEP IS FOR SISSIES we decided to give it our best shot at getting her to tennis without incident. Which we did. Libs had a fun time at the sleepover and I got her to tennis EARLY. In planning this all out Libs had only one request of me … and it cracked me the heck up.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you WEAR REAL CLOTHES!!!

Ahead of the game …

I have been known to drive my crew to school wearing my pajamas. Heck, I even have fun joking around about having to get out of the car in them. HA! Usually my first "pajama sighting" is at least a few weeks into school. Around that 6 week mark, life gets hard and … well … I start wishing for summer again. Or at least a long weekend. Anyway, today was Libs first day of Hell Week at tennis. I didn't sleep well last night. I have WAY too much on my mind and I had an iced coffee WAY too late in the day. So when my alarm went off this morning it was ugly. I dragged my lifeless body out of bed and made sure Libs was up. Then I proceeded to pee (come on, we all do it), brush my teeth and then I curled up on the couch throwing out verbal "help" to keep Libs on time. When it came time to leave, I rolled off the couch, took a quick glance at my hair in the mirror (yikes), grabbed my keys and got out the door. There is NO LATE during Hell Week and if you aren't 15 minutes early you ARE late. So needless to say Libs was early. REALLY early. She was the first one to arrive and that has to make her look good in the coachs' eyes. Right?!?! So between Libs punctuality and me getting an early start on my jammie wearing school drop-offs I'd say that we are both off to a great start. I think.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you are ahead of the game!!!

Spinning …

We have had a busy summer. It's been fun but we have been on the go since George's graduation day in June. It's honestly been a whirlwind. The past few days we have had at home we spent catching up on life. And by life I mean laundry, HA! Well, that was part of it anyway. But we also had even more running around to do. Ugh. Next week Sid is moving into her new house and George will be moving into his dorm. So we had lots of shopping and packing that needed to be done this week. Not to mention Libs and Reese! Luckily they have a few more weeks of summer left so I still have some time to get their back-to-school things in order. Thank. God.

Last night George and I finished the last of our errands to get him ready for college. I felt so relieved! So relieved that I think my body shut down when I went to sleep last night. I woke up in the same position I fell asleep in. Ouch. And I was rudely reminded by my body that I drank no water yesterday. How is that even possible?!?! Busy anxious mom-ness is how that is possible! Needless to say I was so dizzy when I woke up that I could hardly walk. I guess my body has had quite enough of this summer schedule and has decided it's time for me to rest. OK, fine … I'll reluctantly listen.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you aren't spinning!!!

Just sitting here …

Have you ever been so tired (lazy) that even the mere thought of getting up from your spot was exhausting? Like the only thing you want more than your next breath of fresh air, is the power to WILL your bed to you? OK, maybe I’m being a little dramatic but you get my point. I don’t want to move.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you just sit there!!!
