Crash Day

Today I crashed.

Those of you who are parents (particularly moms) or full-time employees, when do you find time to write? I usually do it at night. When everyone else is in bed. Along with the laundry, the dishes, the vacuuming, and everything else. Therefore, my bedtime is almost always midnight.

I also teach English classes in the early morning, sometimes at 5am, sometimes at 6am.

So I average 5-6 hours of sleep a night. Generally, this isn't a problem. But about once a week, it catches up to me.

Today was that day. I got up at 5am and taught. Finished one class and took a 15 min. nap before my next one. Done teaching by 7am. Fed the baby, put cereal on the table for the kids, and went back to bed.

Total crash. I finally dragged myself out of bed around 10am.

Yikes! Thank heavens this only happens once a week or so!

We just finished lunch and are on our way out the door to the pool. BUT don't forget to add up your promoting-me points and post them in the comments here. I'll use random.org to select a winner on Friday!

Awwww, you poor thing. I know how hard it is despite being a bloke. I've had to be mum on many occasions.

Keep your chin up, girl. (((hug)))

I USED to do this. In college. Not anymore. Once or twice a month I have a total veg-out day. But holy cow you have SO much going on!

And I too, am up WAY too late at night. WAY.

@Jolene,yeah my husband always goes to bed around 10 and is like, "are you coming?" and I'm ALWAYS like, "No! It's not midnight yet!"
