I can't breathe or smell out of my nose so that's sort of a blessing and a curse type of thing. I mean, I really like to breathe, but I have three small children and not being able to smell is actually extremely helpful in my line of work given the mass amounts of poop and rotting milk in sippy cups I have to deal with around here.
I am horribly sleep deprived since Cole and Stella have been taking turns keeping me up for hours in the middle of the night during the last week. Yesterday I felt like my head might explode, which seemed bad, and my exhaustion was hitting me so hard I could barely function. So after lunch I did the craziest thing, I took a nap. It was awesome.
Is anyone else doing this?
I usually am horrible at falling asleep during the day, but I laid down and was out for three hours. I haven't done that since Stella was born. I really recommend it. Why don't my children beg for this every day?
Today though, there was no nap and I am pretending to care about the Super Bowl....but really I am just excited to see Tim Riggins, David Beckham, and Madonna. I'm tired, and sick, or maybe not sick, but definitely shouldn't be blogging. So how about you guys do some of the work?
I need some answers. Here are the questions.
- I need a crazy good, lose yourself in the story, book. What should I read? Please, oh please do not say Hunger Games, Twilight, The Help, or anything where I have to really concentrate to understand the English used....because I've read them. Think people! Think!
- This year is Alex and my 10 year anniversary and we want to go away for a few days to somewhere mountainous and full of all things appropriate for October that we can't get in Texas, like cool weather, elevation, and leaves of multiple colors. Any affordable ideas?
- I am determined for 2012 to be the year that I take my adult tap dance class. Where would I take such a class and would you be willing to attend my recital for support?
Remember, I'm sick, or not sick, I need your help.
