These are the days…

It’s been one of those days.

A day when all I really want to do is lay in bed and sleep;

  • and if I’m not sleeping I want to be watching crappy TV (read: Dog the Bounty Hunter;)
  • and if I’m not watching crappy TV, I want to be surfing on the internet or on Twitter.

A day when I don’t want to worry about feeding anyone else but myself and even then all food will be in the form of chocolate.

A day when the kids can push every single button I have and when they are done they start over at the top.

A day when the thing I’m looking forward to the most is naptime, and then the oldest doesn’t nap.

A day when the kids are done being with me and quite frankly I’m done being with them.

A day when my husband cannot come home fast enough, and no I don’t care how many speed limits he breaks to get here.

A day that seems to have NO end in sight.

A day that leads into night with clean kids, cuddles on the bed while watching Ni Hao Kai-Lan and then kids who painfully go to sleep.

A day that blissfully ends.
