That unattainable dream of all moms....


After church today, I decided I was going to try to take a nap. Of course, first I had to answer lots of questions at church, learn they wanted me to sing at a small program on Tuesday and then practice a song real fast with someone. Then I went home and had to make sure children and hubby were all fed. I created a group for out cub scout pack, rechartered the pack (which is a lot more work than it sounds), filled out forms, emailed leaders, created documents for the pack.... yada yada. I'm also a book blogger and have gotten very behind. So, I decided I needed to read. I did that for a while, but then my eyes wouldn't stay open so I curled up in bed.

Suddenly, I jump up with wide eyes screaming and laughing. My darling husband decided to come in and tickle me. Once he finally stopped, I asked him why he did that. He was trying to wake me up. *insert eye roll here*.

I put my head back on the pillow and I heard the whine. Yes, the one that the dog makes as soon as your head hits the pillow because they know that's the perfect time to pee. Of course, no one else in my family can hear this high pitched whining. I have no idea why. I shimmy out of my warm blankets and stomp my way down the hallway to tell my children they need to let out the dogs. Of course, this cannot be an easy task. The kids have to argue about which task is whose. Finally, I tell them who does what and they still don't agree. Mean mom has to yell and they do their tasks. The kids and dogs go outside and play.

Finally, finally!!! I get to sleep. YAY for sweet unconsciousness. Unfortunately, it doesn't last long because I can hear the children and the hubby talking loudly. My daughter going, "Mom sure has been asleep for a long time!" I look at my phone... less than an hour.

I sigh.... and get up.
