Phoning it in

Maybe the Tank is to blame, for waking up at six a.m.. On a Saturday. It was still dark!

Perhaps it's the seven loads of laundry (washed, dried, sorted, folded, and PUT AWAY!) that I did this afternoon.

Maybe it's the three loads of dishes and four meals I've cooked in the last 36 hours.

It could be the turbo-speed housecleaning I did this morning, which, clean! Yay!

Possibly also the whirlwind drop-in visit from Soon-to-be-Ex-Husband this afternoon, which kind of sucked, but left both girls in a reasonably pleasant mood.

But whatever the reason, I am tired tonight. Weekends are meant for R&R, for fun activities, for lounging around in your pajamas with a cup of tea. Weekends are for sleeping in. Weekends are supposed to be, you know, like, pleasant. No drudgery allowed.

Better luck tomorrow.

My kids got up at 6 yesterday. Ugh. And they were both home all day AND Dan was home late and it snowed. Today I got to sleep in (although 8:30 didn't use to be sleeping in) and then I spent the whole day ironing out our budget for the month. I could not make things balance for the longest time. We did clean the floors -- no sticky spots at last!

Anyway, I hear ya on What happened to fun on Saturdays?

I work seven days and hold down three jobs...I dont even sit down for a cup of tea on weekends....friday nights I set aside for cleaning so the weekend means time off from cleaning....but still. I get to sleep in on sundays...thats my sleep in morning....I sometimes go stay with my parents so they do the breakfast routine...can't sleep past 7am even when I know I am allowed...its become my body clock..
