I mean, we ALL knew this day was coming....I had just hoped it wouldn't be so soon.
I am NOT pregnant.
I have, however, completely lost my mind.
(Unfortunately there are no pictures - which really is quite sad once you visualize the following)
Apparently, I'm really, really, tired.
Although, somehow I'm not tired enough to NOT write this down....hmmmm
So tired in fact, that when I was unloading the dryer at 7:30 this evening -
after decorating for Christmas, cleaning up some of that disaster, teaching school,
dealing with obscene amounts of poop, over seeing piano practice x2, making sure all people ate today,
reading bedtime stories, kissing and tucking in 4 little beans- after all of THAT....I knelt down to reach all the way into the back of the dryer, pulled out My Love's paintball pants, inhaled the Tide/Bounce combo deeply, and laid my head on the load of laundry in the basket.
And fell asleep.
For 20 minutes.
The ONLY difference between me and the woman pictured (other than stretch marks, dark circles under my eyes, non-gleaming floors, and my workout apparel for today consisting of a UCONN t-shirt and black capri sweats) was that my head was cushioned by a warm towel and a pair of gray Columbia pants.
How I wish My Love had walked in on that scene!
Perhaps I am extra tired because Boy Bean has been fighting an illness for a bit so sleep has been rather sketchy....
Maybe it is because that is just how you feel in this phase of life....
Or maybe, just maybe, I needed to nap on the laundry to be reminded to keep a Bounce in my step and to roll with the Tide.
That's laundry humor for you.
Stay clean people.
