Multitasking. OR Reasons I need a clone
Yesterday I thought Okay, I've made it to the weekend. I can rest. WRONG. The laundry had to be caught up, house cleaned, et cetera. Then this morning I had the bright idea of taking down the girls' cribs and going on a hunt for new beds. That took almost all day (we just finished putting the new beds together about an hour ago). So now I've used up an entire day off. A day I was supposed to rest.
Tomorrow is church, and it's also my children church team's Sunday to teach. On top of that, I promised my sister and cousin I'd go to the movies with them after lunch. We're going to see Vampires Suck, which I really want to watch, but I'm just so tired at this exact moment that I'd honestly prefer staying home and napping.
I even planned on doing a Face Punch post for today, but didn't have the energy to be annoyed with anyone.
Aside from all of that nonsense, I feel like I didn't see my girls hardly at all this week. I'm working longer hours since I went from three days to two, and of course school takes a good eight hours a day. (Before school I was working a mere 12-14 hours a week, and the rest of the time I was stay-at-home mom.) I also had a get-together with an old friend Thursday night which lasted from six until almost midnight. No wonder I miss my kids.
I know after a few weeks I'll adjust and be fine. It's the initial changing that's the problem. I'm a creature of habit. Give me boring repetition - I'm happy with it.
Someone please tell me I'm not the only one who feels like this...
