Mommy's Day Off

Today I took the day off. I did not plan on it, but I was frustrated and tired. My daughter raged a war against sleep last night. At this point, I am waiting for the girly to crash. She has amazing stamina, you know. I am actually slightly concerned. Anyways…
So I woke up after very little sleep and took the kids to day camp at the day care across the street. I really intended to come home and get to work on Mt. St. Laundry since it is very evident that there really is no Laundry Fairy much to my dismay. I also now have a boatload of new kids clothes to add to the website. My daughter wants pretty much everything in the girl’s section to which I told her she needs to start saving her allowance. (She is 4 and already saves her allowance to spend on clothing, mostly tutu skirts.) However, I got online to check my email, and I just realized that it wasn’t going to happen. At all. Nope. So I did the only thing I could do. I went back to bed. It was wonderful. I should do this more often. Okay, probably not, but sometimes I should. I don’t take care of myself like I should. I know this. I am trying to work on a better schedule, but sometimes it is hard to fit everything into a day, especially when I am a single mom for at least three weeks (sometimes more) a month.  Everything else takes precedence. It’s not right, but it happens.
So today I learned that taking a day off is not going to stop the earth’s rotation or cause the end of the universe. Yes,  I am still behind, but oh well. I got sleep. I am much happier. I think that is a little more important.

    I took Friday and Monday off because of Festival this weekend. The place fell apart without me. It really did.
    I wish I was kidding. I NEVER take time off, and then when I do, everything goes to heck. So unfair.

    Good for you for getting sleep! I didn’t feel any shift in the space time continuum either. 😉 Sometimes mommies just need days off.
