The Plans of Mice and Moms…

I should never make any declarations here about how I will have something posted by a specific date! You’d think I would learn this – but I can be slow sometimes…

Nap Strikes continue. Late nights and early morning wakings have been added. Mommy’s lack of sleep – combined with two tired girls and and many looming deadlines have had a serious effect on me.

BRAIN FREEZE!

And not the good kind you get from eating ice cream too fast!

I have a serious paper due Sunday for my class – haven’t touched it. I’ve had posts I need to write – A Woman Inspired Conference sessions to attend – a much needed Bible study that started Monday blogs I want to visit – people I want and need to be in touch with…

And two little girls who are either bored (or mad that mommy is on the computer) because we’ve had two separate incidents (on consecutive days) of discovering bottles of body wash or other goopy “treasure” which apparently NEED to be smeared all over the floor – or hair – or clothing…

You’d think I would be able to laugh and take pictures. I would love to have the evidence to show in a massive screen slide show at someone’s Sweet Sixteen party or Wedding Reception – but in my current condition, picture taking has been the last thing on my mind…

Instead – I am trying to quit fighting the process and just go with the flow. Which means FAR LESS time at the computer. Even though I’m a speed reader and speed typist…

As deadlines loom – SOMEHOW the paper will get written and I will manage to get the necessary things done. I’m powerblogging while they’re still asleep this morning but am going to spend time with my hubby before he goes into work.

So for this week – I’m going to color, blow bubbles, and have tickle fights. My brain needs a break and I need to enjoy my Mommyness!
