Well I finally got my brain back and my body, I hope. This is the first day in MONTHS I have felt like I am worth a "hill of beans" much less like a functioning mommy. But I have gotten chores done this morning that usually take me all day and still have energy left to finish the day. The lesson I have learned, always get your sleep.
My weakness at night right now is online TV. I know this is a weakness so I cutoff our cable 9 months ago or I would most definitely not get off the couch. I also only allow myself to watch while sitting in an uncomfortable chair in front of the computer. This keeps me from staying too long, at least I like to think so. But my backside surprises me how long it can sit in an uncomfortable chair just to get a little peace and quiet.
This is the time of night that I should finish my chores and go to bed but I am reluctant. That bed is so gosh darn bare without the DH around. I don't like to get in unless I am passing out on the pillow so I wait until my tush can't take it and my eyes are closing on me.
My other distraction at night, I am ashamed to say, playing my son's computer game. You know the kind where you build a colony and an army then attack the enemy colonies. I am doing really well. I have a Level 35 home city. It took me months to get there. Of course this started because DH wasn't around to help him learn his new game so I had to figure it out so I could teach him. Then he wanted me to play for him to win his games. Then he wanted to watch me play to learn. Now we take turns. The things a mom will do?!
