Hiding out

I either had a major case of the Mondays today or I was officially overwhelmed.  The boys and I stayed in our pajamas for the better part of the morning and when I put them down for their naps, I had all these things that I needed to do swirling around in my head.  So many things…exciting things…and some not so exciting things…it was literally making my head spin.  Feeling so overwhelmed is not the best feeling…all I wanted to do was climb in my bed and hide out under my covers.  You ever have those days?

After a hour and a half long nap…no shame in my game, kids.  I like a nap.  Not a 20 minute power nap, but a put lines on your face nap where you crash so hard that upon waking, for a second, you are a little confused.  Those are my kind of naps.  Thank the sweet Lord above, that my kiddos take after me and can N-A-P, too.  When I woke up, I jotted down a list of things I needed to get done and I.felt.so.much.better.  I am a list maker at heart and I cannot begin to tell you about the joy I get from being able to cross something off my list.  For some reason seeing it all on paper, calms me.  It instantly allows my poor brain to relax and not worry about forgetting something.

This evening, when I got in bed to go over my list, I realized that Sam had scribbled his thoughts at the top.  It made me laugh, and the fact that he added several bullet points like

  • feed the dogs
  • clean the house
  • shower

to my list made me laugh even harder.  So, tonight, I hope you won’t be offended with my brainless post…it really needs the night off.  😉
