White Flag'in It

I'm in a bad mood... I don't want to be. I want to be all happy and cheery and light, because of all things it's Friday AND the sun is beaming outside!!!

I am in a bad mood cause I am so cranky and it all falls back on to the exhaustion. The total and utter exhaustion. The getting up two, three, four times a night--Alyson's feedings, Jonathan's yelling out, the list goes on and on....

 I don't know what happened to "normal" but my normal sneaked out the door while I was wasn't sleeping (along with my good mood.)

It's partly my own fault. I haven't slept for more that six hours in seven months. I probably could get in an eight hour night but that means going to bed at eight o'clock, but I feel like I'm being reprimanded? After I get all the kids in bed it's "me" time. The only time I get during the day to do what I want. And it's so easy to forget how tired I was that morning when I am giddy that I get to choose what I want...maybe even watch a show on TV that is rated PG!!! Or sit on a chair reading wonderful blogs UNINTERRUPTED...or nothing...just doing NOTHING.

I'm officially raising my white flag! I'm exhausted....and going to spend some quality time napping this weekend. I may even go to bed one night at eight...okay nine but that's the earliest...

Oh well thats good and proper - hope you've enjoyed your rest! And some 'me' time. Many thanks for taking the time to stop by my humble blog! Really appreciate it - esp under the circumstances. I don't expect I'll ever know what your kind of exhausted is like (I can't have children). You do have a beautiful family. Shah .X

Thank you for the comments on my family. I like how your blog is "real". I love reading and seeing other people's perspective on things. I hope you have a great weekend =)

Wow, I share in that exhaustion; no matter how I try, there's never any catch-up. One day keeps rolling into another and so on...

Maybe it's just the heavy blanket of Winter (at least for me here in NY) that promotes these melancholy feelings...I need, we all need, some Spring!

Hopped-over from FTLOB this morning, wanted to wish you a Happy Sunday! Sneak away and go curl up in a corner where they can't find you; at least for an hour!
