I really don't have anything to blog about or any time to do it, but here I am.
I'm crazy tired today. I don't know why. Actually I have a pretty good idea. I got up and went running yesterday morning at 5:15. This is the usual time, but I wonder if it was a little too early after the marathon. It actually felt good to run, but it caught up to me today.
Ok, I think the other reason I'm so dang tired is that I told myself I was going to stop drinking Coke until after the marathon. I've cheated a little, but for the most part, I'm staying strong. I'm sure this exhaustion is partly because my body is wondering where its caffeine fix is. I'm this close to caving.
I would really like to have a day where we just sleep in and do nothing all day. That sounds so nice. I should relax and just watch TV or read a book or something. I should. I cleaned yesterday (although it doesn't ever stay clean for long), I'm pretty much caught up on laundry (except I am putting off folding the last batch). Peter gets to go over to her friends for a play date at 10:00. I have AJ today (my cute little neice), but she's pretty easy going.
Here's my way of watching the kids while I'm tired. We all went out (me, Peter & AJ), climbed on the tramp, and I laid down in the middle while the girls jumped over me. Can you say lazy?
I'm also going through a very serious homemaker funk. I am boycotting it all. I have absolutely no motivation or desire to do any kind of housework (no surprise, there), and also any kind of decorating. I see many of you posting your cute little fall projects. I don't even want to walk downstairs to get the decorations I have to put them up, much less take them back down again, just to put away. I don't want to decorate for Christmas either. I am really, really DREADING the holidays. I know....bah humbug. What a grinch. I am planning on getting a Festival of Trees tree this year on auction, so I don't have to decorate. Clint got us on the auction list last year. It goes to a good cause, and my kids will still get a tree. That will be the ONLY decorating I will do this year.
Cooking? Forget it. I went to the Taste of Home Cooking Show last night with my MIL and SILs & GIL. While, I can appreciate eating a good home cooked meal, I have absolutely no desire to make one. Oh, I'm not a bad cook. Back in the day, I used to be a pretty good cook, and I liked to do it. But, it's hard to get into the spirit of cooking when there is no one to eat it. Kids won't eat more than just cheese tacos and mac n cheese, hubby doesn't come home early enough for dinner, unless he gets off early for me to go somewhere (like the cooking show), and we're not eating anyway.
Oh, and my yard is being overtaken by weeds. Cuz I don't want to do yardwork either.
I have lost all desire to do anything domestic. How do I get out of this funk?
Somebody help me, pleeeaase!!!!!!!!
