Nap Time?

snoopyI am whiped out.  It has been one of those days.  I have been sick and have been at home the last two days sleeping.  Today I went back to work and even worked through lunch.  And now I am ready for a nap.  I could sleep just about anywhere.
nap timeBut I can’t take one because I have to go work at my part time job in 30 minutes.  Doesn’t it always happen that the days you want a nap the most  you don’t get one?  And the days where you don’t want to take a nap are the days where you have time for a nap.  So today, if you have time, take a nap for me, and know that I am jealous.  Happy Napping 🙂basset nap

In the middle of the night…

Top  Reasons Why I Wake up in the Middle of the Night

1-I am cold
2-My shoulder hurts
3-I had a bad dream
4-Either Adam or I is sick
5-Adam wakes me up thinking I actually said something important
6-Adam is snoring
7-I just remembered something I forgot to do
8-I have a headache
9-Adam has stolen the covers
10-I can’t sleep

One of the first four things happen almost every night, the others happen but not as often.

All I Want…

Right now, all I want is
1-a good nights sleep
2-my clean house to stay clean

Is that too much to ask?

I have been so good lately, going to bed in time to get 8 hours of sleep, but I wake up at all times of the night, and for the past 3 mornings, I have woken up 15-30 minutes before my alarm clock.  And that is one of the most annoying things ever.  I am so tired.  I just want a good nights sleep.

I had gotten really behind on cleaning the house because I have been so busy.  Monday night I cleaned the whole first floor (I haven’t quite made it upstairs yet).  But now, I just want it to stay clean.  Since I cleaned it, every out of place thing or clutter makes me cringe.  I do pretty well of keeping it clean the first few days, but soon I’ll get too annoyed with always putting things back where they go that I’ll just stop.  Hopefully I make it longer this time.  Why can’t my house just stay clean?  And the laundry and dishes stay done?  That is all I ask.

Like most other working people, I hate mondays.  Especially the Monday after daylight savings, spring fowards, Sunday.  This morning I thought it was 2am when my alarm went off because it was pitch black outside.  It probably didn’t help that I didn’t sleep well.  Adam got strep this weekend, and I am feeling sick again and I am afraid that I got it again.  And since I haven’t been sleeping well, I’m suspecting that my body just doesn’t have the chance to get better.  What a drag.  I’m still feeling pretty sick and I might have to go back to the doctor.  Joy.

Was your monday as rough as mine?

February–a month of ups and downs

If you asked me how my February was I would tell you “Fantastic!”  But then, if I sat down and thought about it, I might have to change my answer.  There were definitely great parts of February, but there were also the bad parts of February.

Our microwave is dying
I found out I have a torn tendon in my shoulder–read about it here
Sleeping on the couch for most of the month
I only read three books
Stress with money
Got strep
Adam was gone studying a lot
Failed at doilies

My birthday!!
I watched almost a movie a day
I read three really great books
I found out I got a scholarship to attend the Religious Communicators Convention in February
Predicted 21 of the 24 ocscar winners
Valentines day with my hubby
Made some really good recipes (yum)
Was a published guest blogger
Watched 6 best picture movies
Got the most “yes”es at the Emmanuel phoneathon
Crocheted a bearded hat
Finally watched Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter
And finally, I have all you wonderful people reading my blog!

Well, the good did outweigh the bad, so I think we can still call it a Fabulous February.  Here’s to a Marvelous March!
