I Am Totally Exhausted

Grizzly Mama's done - she's grizzled. I can barely lift my arms and I just want to sleep for 2 days, now. The level of activity for this household has increased beyond what I am capable of dealing with. If it's not practices, it's concerts. If it's not concerts, it's Christmas activities. If it's not Christmas activities, it's community service projects. If it's not community service projects, it's shopping. If it's not shopping, it's doing laundry. If it's not doing laundry, it's working. If it's not working, it's getting the tree up and decorated. If it's not getting the tree up and decorated, it's vacuuming up the needles. If it's not vacuuming up the needles, it's getting the greens hung. If it's not getting the greens hung, it's getting all the outdoor lighting set. If it's not getting the outdoor lighting set, well. You get the idea.

I'm done. I'm taking a day off. Well - not totally off. We'll be baking cookies for a Christmas party that's coming up next week. Spritz. My favorite. We're bagging the co-op tomorrow morning, due to weather and the fact that Troll is taking my favoritist SUV into Philly for his commute - leaving me with that sportish type car that's no good in the snow - and we're supposed to get snow, ice, sleet - whatever - tomorrow in the a.m. I'm not driving in it. No.

We're going to bake cookies, do a couple of lessons, take long hot showers and I am going to try to chill out for a bit. Then we can face that BEAR of a Friday refreshed. (hopefully)

Ok you think you are busy now wait till they go to school if they decide to go... I mean right now you have the run of the hous and go when you feel like it so just be careful with both decisions. I know this wasnt that post but it goes hand in hand really. Take care and enjoy your partial day off.

It doesn't seem to matter whether they are in a traditional school or not, does it? lol.

AAH yes, nothing Like a warm bath and a nice snooze to refresh the mind and get back in focus.

Abouna and Mr. GG - so true and thank you. We had a nice rest-day, and those long hot showers and a good nights sleep for all made a big difference.

I could've done a post with this title almost every day for the last 2 weeks or so. I'm about ready to collapse but we leave to go out of town on Friday and I told my Mom that I'm going to sleep for like 2 days when I get to her house ;-).

Oh, Dee - I hear you. I hope that you can get that rest! We have been taking school very easy, and not having to get up early for any activities, and I'm still beat myself...
