do you ever have a day where you are just tired and don't know what to do with your time? today i worked at wyatt's school for a couple hours and then came home, ran an errand and then home again for lunch. knowing i didn't have to pick wyatt up from school, i lay down for a rest. of course i couldn't sleep but i did just rest. then got up and worked on uploading (?) photos to my blog.then back to lay down again and watch some recorded tv shows. now i need to eat something for dinner and get ready to go to wyatts ballgame. but i am tired and don't really feel like doing much of anything. the tv has been my friend today. i feel lost and yet i have so many things i could be doing around here. tell me that you sometimes have days like this too, where you just can't figure out how to use your time.....please.
what goes around, comes around.....
speak with kindness....

I have really exhausted days, but my lil darlings never let me sit, or have five minutes to myself to think, I fell asleep in the chair yesterday for about 30 minutes when all the lil kids napped (RARE happening), but most days I just keep moving because there is never a lack of something to do.

Hope you are feeling more rested today.

Yep, I have lots of days like that. Usually more in the winter months, but it still happens in the nicer months. I think it's just our bodies way of telling us to slow down and take a break, so that we don't completely burn out.

I agree, a day here or there like that is a day of catch up.

My days are always being pulled in hundred different directions with something always to do. I think it would be nice to have a day kinda like that but I get what your saying in that you have things to do but you kinda want to put if off a little or cant sort the order.

Life sometimes get to rushed and very busy, Take your time out if needed and dont feel guilty heck life is life!

Considering I'm still entirely way beyond exhausted from being pregnant, I have many many days like that.... more than I honestly care to admit at this point. Its quite frustrating too because before this pregnancy, even with being pregnant with the others, I was always on top of things. Now I sort, prioritize, & always make time for a nap or two or three.

Yes. A couple of days ago, I thought I could lay down on the couch and catch a quick nap before I had to pick kids up from school.....The day before the dc were gifted markers.... Well apparently I did nap because they drew all over the walls right above the couch.
Rhetorical ?? How old are you? I know you are a grandma.....My mom gets really tired with almost no exertion Hope it's not that for you.

I get days like this, I try and nap any chance I get being pregnant, on medication for HG that makes me tired and having my 15mo old wears me out!
