No one told me that I was going to be tired every night if I get up early in the morning.
Hey! That’s a dirty trick.
Our youngest visitor had quite the time with this little gun.
It’s only 10 pm and I am totally exhausted. It feels like midnight. I can barely keep my eyes open (much less string sentences together in a coherent fashion), but I haven’t written email to my family, caught up on my homeschool emails or read all the hundreds of blog postings in my RSS reader.
These three 5 year olds are GREAT friends!
What I have done, however, is made Tim’s lunch, cleaned up the kitchen, run the dishwasher, emptied the washer, started the dryer, and put five children to bed.
As are their older sisters.
Not to mention:
- worked on my Beth Moore (Daniel) Bible study
- taught school
- prepared meals for my family
- visited with a friend and her five children over lunch
- welcomed five additional children for the afternoon (making it a total of 15 kids here at our home)
- delivered dinner to friends from church
- created an Impress presentation for my homeschooling co-op class
- picked up kids from their church outing
And so much more (hopefully not too much more as I can barely function right now).
Adam and Daniel take on the bad guys in their Lego Star Wars computer game.
I’ve decided to give myself permission to be tired. Of course, with computer troubles and a stubborn determination to add a few pictures to this post, it’s now just after 10:30 pm. And I wonder where the time goes. Sigh.
What time do you wake up in the morning? Any other night owls out there who have to get up early in order to ‘get everything done’ in their day? As if it were possible to get everything done. How many hours of sleep does a mom really need?
