Busy weekend = no rest for the weary

Hello All six of you who read my blog 

I’m so glad it’s Friday, but I’ve got a busy weekend planned and so much to do, that I am already looking forward to Sunday afternoon when I can chill on the couch and do NOTHING.  My son is turning 13 tomorrow (don’t even get me started – I’m so not ready for the teen years), and he has a basketball game at 8:30 a.m., then my middle daughter has cheer camp tomorrow after which she will be “cheering” at an elementary basketball game that afternoon. My son wants to have a couple of friends spend the night so, I have to make sure I have plenty of boy snacks at home (I’m thinking popcorn and pretzels and …what else? Trying to keep it healthy, but what healthy things do pubescent boys like to eat?)  Also have to fit in time for grandparents to come over and give the boy his bday gifts, plus have to find time to get the kitchen back together enough to allow visitors to see it.  Add to that the usual loveliness of laundry laundry and more laundry and already I’m exhausted. Oh, and did I mention I’m PMSing? A bunch? And I’m super tired? Yeah, it’s great to be me today. Really.

Hello, my name is Jill!

Typing all this out and suddenly I have a craving for something to eat even though I just ate lunch an hour ago.  Coincidence? I think not. I’m going to drink lots and lots of water this afternoon to see if that helps. I know I need to work out tonight, but I have a feeling I’m not going to have enough drive to make myself do it. I really need to clean my house a little bit tonight, so that might have to be my workout.

A couple of things have lead to my tiredness today:  Mallory woke up twice last night – once because she wet the bed (she’s a bedwetter and we had run out of Underjams) and then she had a coughing fit not long after that. When I finally got her settled in, I had a hard time settling down enough to sleep. My mind just wouldn’t turn off, and then when I finally did fall asleep, I had weird, disturbing dreams (tiny babies with shark teeth, boa constrictors everywhere, my sister and I getting into a fight) so today I feel like I have been run over by a mach truck. 

I’m too tired to even finish this post.  Just send me good healthy, energetic vibes my way so I can make it through the weekend without crashing and burning.

Let's hope this isn't me in 48 hours

Have a good weekend!  See ya on Monday.  🙂

  1. I hope that is NOT you after the weekend too! My son turns 13 on Sunday! I keep saying that he’s not old enough to be a teen-ager but then he’s over 6 feet tall so I know that’s silly to say.

    Take care of yourself this weekend.

  2. Jillie, you CAN’T be the mother of a teenager. What? Did you marry when you were 6 years old???

    That slug picture completely grosses me out.

    I hope you will carve out just a little couch time for yourself.

  3. I hope you didn’t crash and burn this weekend, Jill!
    Lack of sleep is a huge reason why I lack energy during the day. Whenever my girls have a bad night sleeping I have a day with little to no mojo.
    Hopefully you got some rest!!!
