confessions of one lazy woman

Tomorrow is Valentine's Day. (Can't hit publish now because of the giveaway week posts.)

There were so many things I intended to get done today including the play group my friend worked hard to put together, and a trip to the store so we can eat something other than sandwiches or eggs for dinner. I planned on making some Valentine's and delivering them too. It was going to be a busy, full, productive kind of day.

Then I stayed up until 11:30 last night reading Reached. I knew, I KNEW better. I even told myself, "Do not pick that book. Heather! Don't do it! Put it down! Put it down now!" And then I opened it anyway. Which would have been okay, but then Pirate woke up at 4:00AM thinking it was time for breakfast and playing and by the time I convinced him otherwise, I was too awake to go back to sleep.

The day went downhill from there.

I took a shower early in the day, because I was going to have this amazing productive day. Then I got out of the shower to realize I was completely out of clean underwear. I know people more brave than me that wouldn't have let that stop them from going anywhere. Commando? Who cares? Me. I do. I care. I just can't do it.

By the time the laundry was finished, and I'd attended to Pirate's needs, play group was half over. And of course, while I waited for laundry I talked myself into reading my book. Then because play group was half over and Pirate didn't want to go, I thought, Well I should at least go to the store! but by then my no-night's-sleep was caught up to me and I was just too tired. After nap time, I told myself.

Nap time. Hahahaaha!

My son functions (though a little on the cranky side) fine on 5 hours of sleep. (Did I not mention? He didn't go to sleep until 11 last night.)

There are dishes crawling out of my sink, my floors are despicable, I have nothing for dinner, not a single Valentine ready to take to anyone, and I'm just this much too tire to care.

I've got all day tomorrow, right?

I swear I'm not just saying this-- I LOVE posts like this. I love that you can say, HEY WORLD, I'm a real person who wants to read a good book when I have a moment to myself, who has good intentions and sometimes life doesn't cooperate (life and a small pirate) and things don't get done. Valentine's Day is one day out of the year-- you still have 364 other days to tell people you love them :)

I am so glad that I am not the only one that has days like that...and all because of small children that can function fine on so little sleep, when Mommy hasn't been able to do so for many years. I hope this week is going better! Just as I hope my day, that started at 3am, goes well (I luckily have a husband that is home and allowed me a couple more hours sleep).
