It was a fall-asleep-in-your-clothes sort of day.
One moment I was feeding Judah before putting him down for the night, the next moment I was waking up fully clothed (with my contacts still in – yuck) sometime in the middle of the night.
For every good intention I had of squeezing in some work after the kids went down, my body had another idea.
Seems lately I can barely keep my eyes open.
Lists sit untouched. Laundry sits unfolded. Emails sit waiting for replies. Blogs sit ignored. Projects sit half-done.
I’m behind on every single thing I’m working on, full of new ideas I’m unable to implement, lagging on some of my day-to-day responsibilities, and wondering how to live this season well.
I still have so much to learn.
I probably need to get into the habit of taking an afternoon nap again, like I did for the first few months after Judah was born.
(For the record, Judah is not a fan of sleep. And that? That pretty much just makes me tired. All the time.)
I will say this: for all the things I’m failing at, one thing I’m doing right – I’m playing with my boys and helping them to grow and learn.
(Levi knows his left and right. Seriously? Can I just brag about that a tiny bit? I think it’s amazing considering I still sometimes have to stop and think about which one is which. So yes, my children are genius. *snicker* At least I can be proud of them. *grin*)
I’m multi-tasking less. Trying to listen more. Focusing on enjoying life more.
I know I’ll never regret that.
But still? Dang, I’m tired.
And dang, I’m half-drowning in the not-yet-done.
Q for you: I didn’t write last night because I fell asleep at 7:30pm fully clothed. When’s the last time you were that tired?
