This is going to be short. I had typed this all up previously and then the thing decided to lock up right when I was getting ready to publish it. It’s been a crazy day and I can’t remember everything that I had written before so here it goes…
It’s the beginning of a new week and I hadn’t had much sleep the night before; like I went to sleep 1 1/2 hours before the alarm went off. Luckily I didn’t have to go to work today, but I had to get Kristian to school. I walked around this morning in a daze. My mantra for the morning was, "I just have to make it back home. I just have to make it back home." Once I made it home, I had to make myself not start cleaning and actually lay down for some sleep. I didn’t sleep long cause I still needed to clean the bathrooms and take my husbands clothes to the cleaners before noon. But the awesome wife and mother that I am, I got it all done, started dinner, made a supply of simple syrup for my tea (I’m an avid tea drinker. Loose leaf is the best and if you can get an hibiscus even better), stopped at the store for toilet tissue (this family of three goes through tissue like a family of six) and broccoli, and still got Kristian by 3:15. I continued on with my awesome mom status by spending 45 minutes wrestling with Kristian Leapster Tag. Kristian is starting to read now and told me today, "Momma, I want to have reading time everyday where I read my books by myself." The 45 minutes was spent reloading the software and downloading the new book that she got for Christmas, then I still needed to work with her on reading it. Of course as soon as she started reading she got sleepy.
In all fairness, she had said she wasn’t feeling well when I picked her up from school. I gave her some Tylenol and then she crawled up into my lap and said, "Momma, I want you." It was the sweetest thing to my ears. I love to her my baby say that to me and then I stuck my nose into her neck and took in that wonderful baby smell. I know she’s five, but she will always be my baby. I just put her in her bed and got me a piece of the French Silk pie I mentioned the other day. I know I shouldn’t be eating pie this late, but this pie is my weakness…I don’t make it that often for this reason. (check out the picture) My tip about French Silk pie…add some coffee to the chocolate (it makes it more chocolatey) and add some orange zest to the whole recipe, it sets if off.
I need to get some sleep tonight
…tomorrow is laundry day, Kristian has ballet and I have book club; but I missed "Diner, Drive-ins, and Dives" watching "Confessions of a Shopaholic" (I hope they make the rest of the books of the series into movies, it was an awesome series). The next time it comes on again at 1am. I don’t know if I can do it though. I’ll write to ya’ll again soon….
