Sleeping Beauty

This month has been completely crazy. It has never been so hard going back to work after the holidays like this year. Age, perhaps? Oh no, here she goes again. Speaking of age, my son made a mistake at school today and told his classmates I was 49 instead of 39! Can you believe it? I'll ignore spelling mistakes. Who cares about multiplication! Bad grade, no problem! But never, and I mean never, get your mom's age wrong. And if you do, make sure you knock a few years off.

So back to me being tired. Forget tired, I am absolutely knackered! All day long I have visions of my bed and I daydream of snoring away. I really need to get my act together and recover some of the excess energy I used to have because it's not a pretty picture right now. I need a crash course in time management. Between work, family and volunteer work, I'm having a hard time finding quiet time for myself. Today I made myself go shopping. Just few months ago it was the other way round, I had to keep myself far away from malls and shops. Although it felt quite good going on a shopping spree, it was so rushed that I really didn't enjoy it like in the good old days.

And I'm just about to embark on the ICLW marathon. I don't think my dream of becoming the iron commentor will ever come true, at least certainly not this month by the look of things.

Off I go!

I hope you get some rest. Take care and I forget how old I am sometimes!! (Almost 47 years old btw)

You can do it! (Become an Iron Commentator, that is!) I'm trying it's not easy but I am so so so determined.

Hope you are feeling more lively later on!

My kids get my age wrong all the time, too. Of course they also think I have a birthday in the summer (instead of January) - really it's just they are confusing their step mother's age and birthday with mine.

I'm all for putting yourself first...even for just an hour! (even if it means taking a quick nap) he-he-


oh- PS - the only thing worse then your kids getting YOUR age wrong is YOU getting your BOSS's age wrong (did in last night!)

Parenthood is exhausting work. I firmly believe the reason kids have so much energy is that they siphon it away from us.

I hope you get some rest and feel better.
