Fall Is Fun

I Need Sleep

Seriously, I just feel so much lack of ambition, motivation…anything that I feel I should have just stayed in bed. My husband let me sleep in yet again this morning since I haven’t had a decent nights sleep in an entire week. As much as I honestly appreciate the gesture, it didn’t help.

I have always been the ‘sleeper’ in our relationship. If I’m tired, I’m generally out like the proverbial light. And, I’m usually able to sleep through just about anything to include fire alarms, tornado sirens and screaming children. Admittedly, this week hasn’t been prime for sleep. With Miss L waking up due to sickness, I was bound to miss some winks. But now, it’s almost as if my body has decided that not sleeping is some fantastic new idea.

I do eventually fall asleep each night…roughly two hours after I initially go to bed and after much tossing and turning. Then I sleep lightly and wake a few times, for up to an hour each, leaving me feeling completely unrested, crabby and unmotivated.

Despite all that I’m still keeping up on the house, playing with the kids, making meals and doing my mom/wife stuff, but I’ll tell you I’m not into it at all. The bare minimum is more than enough for me right now.

Slow Down… (Thanks Tanya)

Have you ever watched kids
On a merry-go-round?
Or listened to the rain
Slapping on the ground?
Ever followed a butterfly’s erratic flight?
Or gazed at the sun into the fading night?
You better slow down.
Don’t dance so fast.
Time is short.
The music won’t last.
Do you run through each day
On the fly?
When you ask
How are you?
Do you hear the reply?
When the day is done
Do you lie in your bed
With the next hundred chores
Running through your head?
You’d better slow down
Don’t dance so fast.
Time is short.
The music won’t last.
Ever told your child,
We’ll do it tomorrow?
And in your haste,
Not see his sorrow?
Ever lost touch,
Let a good friendship die
Cause you never had time
To call and say,’Hi’
You’d better slow down.
Don’t dance so fast.
Time is short.
The music won’t last.
When you run so fast to get somewhere
You miss half the fun of getting there.
When you worry and hurry through your day,
It is like an unopened gift thrown away.
Life is not a race.
Do take it slower
Hear the music
Before the song is over.

I Have to Thank My Husband Today

First, for getting up with the kids this morning and letting me sleep until 11AM! Even though I was quite a prickly bear when it was time to roll out of bed. For setting up the playstation so the kids could check out the games, and even hanging out in the living room with us despite the interest in the Nascar racing game. For playing Hi-Ho Cherry-O with Luli while I dealt with a tantrum last night. For trying to help sort out the tantrum from Monday. For trying this week to be a bit more involved.
