(what is this even a picture of? it’s the only one on my camera this week)
This was one of those weeks where I felt like “this is the longest week of my life” and “where did this week go” all at once. Halloween recovery, pre-holiday purges, a little early on-line Christmas shopping, conferences, conferences and more conferences. I am excited for the weekend…but I also need a good night’s rest. Miss Janey Pants decided that she wanted to stay up late last night-we are doing the two-to-one nap transition thingy, and hence, my brain is buzzing with exhaustion.
I have every intention of participating in Stephanie’s November gratitude posts, and I hope it’s not too late to start on November 9th. I feel like a cheater pants, but it’s so important to take time to remember that life is good, and better late than never?
I have every intention of a good Christmas toy post also, a few of you have asked if I will do that again this year…and a teenage gift guide written by Abbey and maybe one prompted by Matt and Isaac (because we all know boy’s are the most difficult to buy for!) but it will take me a week or two or three to get that together.
Isn’t it crazy how overwhelming life can feel when you are tired?
Andrew asked me the other day, “Mom how do you fall asleep at night if you just can’t?”
I said, “That almost never happens to me anymore Andrew, but when it does, and when it did when I was little, I would say Hail Mary’s and that always works.” It does work-it works for me when my mind goes crazy at night and fills with worries and doubts. But like I told Andrew-that hardly ever happens anymore because after a day’s work, I am out like a light.
