I am having kind of a long day here. Too much to do and too little time to do it in. I am also pretty sleep deprived because the toddler has decided that she hates her bed and her room and screams as soon as I leave her there. There are like five kids, including the seven year old who can put her to bed and it is cool, but not me. If I put her to bed, you would think I am lowering her into acid. So I get her to sleep and sneak her in and try to put her in bed without waking her. If I wake here, then the five sisters who share her room will definitely wake up. She makes sure of it.
There is a Finland fundraising dinner tomorrow and I have food to make and costumes to wash and press for the kids. I have high school essays to grade and religion projects to prep. I have some knitting for other people to catch up on. I have some knitting for me I want to get done (a shawl I am knitting along with my best friend). I am writing a book, maintaining a blog, and trying to spend more time with hubs. Like most women I know, I am burning the candle at both ends and I have no idea why I am surprised that I sometimes feel burned out.
I think I am declaring Saturday burn out day. No stupid work. No school. No writing. I am making pancakes for breakfast and staying in PJs until noon. I need this break. Who is with me?
