Of Late: Off my game

Thursday, September 26, 2013

I should be taking a nap. It is one of those rare occasions that both of my kids are sleeping. These moments are precious to me. As much as I love my children, having a little bit of time to myself during the day is glorious. It doesn't always happen, and I'm certainly not counting on it, so when it does I don't want to do anything else than sit and enjoy the silence and the solitude. Especially today.

After minimal sleep last night, I think I was up every hour on the hour since 1am, for one reason or another. Blahhh, exhausted. So exhausted that I tried to leave the grocery store without paying this morning. Got my items scanned and bagged, then I took off, only to hear the checkout lady calling out to me. Oh man, my head is not in the game!

When I got home, I looked down to realise I still had my pyjama top on, I remember taking it off this morning, trying a few shirts on that didn't really fit my post baby body as well as I would like, and then grabbed a tank to put on, I guess I grabbed the wrong one, hence, pyjamas! Luckily I had a very cute baby strapped to me in the Ergo so hopefully nobody noticed. I just had to have a little chuckle to myself, I'm so out of it!

It has been one of those weeks where I just feel like I'm lagging. I can't seem to catch up and I'm getting left behind. Last week I felt like I had it all together... I'm not sure what happened in between! The house is a wreck, the days are a blur,, the dinners are simple and thrown together, tempers are short, the nights I have a hard time getting off the couch and doing something productive, but we've been watching 'So I married an Axe Murderer', one of our favourite movies, because a little laughter makes everything better and makes me relax! HEAD MOVE NOW!!!

I guess almost three months of interrupted nights (not including the pregnancy interrupted nights) is just started to take its toll. I guess I can't have it all together, all the time right ;)

I can't wait for the weekend, did I mention LONG WEEKEND!

I hope you were able to bring your 'A' game this week!! Somebody needs to, and it ain't my turn right now!

Good thing they are so cute!

  1. This post reminds me of the time I found myself at the library in my slippers...pink sheepskin slippers!
    We all have these days and these weeks.
    I hope you get some rest over the weekend...enough to make everything click back into place and for your A game to return!
