The award goes to the woman nodding off in the corner

The Webmaster thinks I am wonderful, caring, valiant wife. This is due to the fact that for the last 3 work mornings, I have popped myself out of bed at 7:30 am, roused the kids, piled them into the minivan and driven him to the park-and-ride while our other car was in the shop.

Note to self: If one wants to continue to be thought of as valiant, caring wife who is sacrificial with her time, perhaps one should try and stay awake for said praise.

As Juliet (Girl With Flat Hat) so brilliantly noted, I posted late/early yesterday. My usual M.O. is to post at my bedtime for a time after midnight, hence making said post look like current day’s post when seen by people. Well, let’s just say that sometimes I’m up really late, and the time you see is the real life Pacific Daylight (soon to be Standard) Time.

Four hours of sleep does not a functional mommy make. Wikipedia is evil. Television is bad for you. I have too much to do and not enough hours alone (i.e. children demanding that I give them apple juice and find their missing puzzle pieces NOW). I’m going to go try and catch up on that sleep now. Will work on projects when I can keep my eyes open. If anyone has creative strategies to keep two children – a two and three-quarter year old and a fourteen month old – occupied in an activity that is not TV, does not involve the great outdoors (currently very cold and wet), and will keep them from fighting with each other, please fill me in. I’m desperate, people. Catch you all later – will hopefully have enough brain cells left to explain myself after some sleep.

And the car is back, so my days of playing shuttle van driver are done for now! WOO-HOO!!!

    Toddler straight-jackets! It’s our only hope.

    GO TO SLEEP! It’s a lot easier to be creative when you’re not sleepwalking. 🙂
