I used to have a “mommy curfew.” I would be in bed by 10pm the latest! However, lately I’ve been staying up later. I guess it’s just taking longer to unwind at the end of the day. I CANNOT go to bed without my unwind time. It’s absolutely necessary to have at least an hour of down time…which usually doesn’t start till 9pm. I need this time. I just seem to be taking more and more of it and then suffering in the morning.
I’m getting tired and run down and I know it’s a lack of sleep. I need to instill my curfew again. I started the week off right and went to bed at 9:30. That was a product of pure exhaustion from our busy weekend. October has been a crazy month thus far. Three days of vehicle fire school, up at 5am, birthday parties, soccer, croup, and fall activities. I’m severely exhausted…and I’m supposed to run a 5K this weekend. Oye! I can’t even think about running right now.
It’s time to start drinking my Mona-Vie again. My energy level was so much better then. And I must, MUST, instill my curfew. Momma needs rest (I also need little young ones to all sleep through the night). I’m missing the days of the pool where they were completely tuckered out and slept all night.
I just realized I put the ice cream in the refrigerator instead of the freezer…chocolate soup anyone?
I need a nap!
