In Which I Take A Nap

I have a guilty confession to make. Today instead of going out to the house and working while Connor was at school, I went home and took a nap.

It was a nice nap, but I really should have been working at the house. However, I woke up this morning feeling totally burned out, as Connor decided several times during the night that he was Not Happy, and I know from experience that if I feel that way on Monday things do not bode well for the week. Since this week is turning out to be an especially busy one in terms of doctor's appointments and meetings, it's especially important for me to get some relaxation time in.

So I took a nap, and felt much better afterwards.

Thanksgiving break wasn't really a break for me, which is funny. Thanksgiving break was five days of All Connor, All The Time. So it makes quite a bit of sense why I would feel kind of exhausted after the holiday. I need my three hours of time to myself four days a week to preserve my sanity. That's why I was so cheery dropping the little guy off this morning; I was imagining my head hitting the pillow.

Everyone needs a lazy day sometimes!

Oh, Jess! I can *so* relate! The kids have been off from school since Tuesday (and Emmett was sick, so he didn't go that day). I am sitting in front of my computer, drinking coffee through clenched teeth, ignoring children and counting_down_the_minutes until I can drop them off at preschool. My big treats for the day? Showering without an audience! And vacuuming without having to fight Emmett for the attachments! It's going to be an awesome day.

I'm happy you took a nap. It's the little things that make it all bearable, isn't it? :)
