A tired momma.

Wednesday July 30, 2008
I had a hard time sleeping last night and didn't fall asleep until sometime after 3 so today I was one tired momma. After getting up a little late I made sure to read my scriptures before I got my day going because I knew I was gonna need all the help I could get. Robert ended up coming back home from work because they sent him home due to a miscommunication so I was glad to have him home again. I need to soak up all the time I can get from him before he leaves. So I spent a lot of time scrubbing and spiffifying (yep... I made that word up!) my bathrooms today and now they are all sparkly and clean. I love that feeling. But that scrubbing and what not pretty much did me in for the day. Usually I'm not such a wuss but like I said, I was one tired momma. We just hung out and whatnot during the day and then I made a really good dinner of broccoli cheese soup and chicken salad sandwiches. I think this is my favorite meal these days. I usually make the sandwiches with croissants but that was too expensive so I just made them on toasted french bread and it was just as good. After dinner it was time for my show. By this time I was over tired and a big grouch. Sorry family! My kids were super tired as well and were fuss butts and they were driving me crazy. Joaquin has been head butting and scratching and pinching me like crazy because he's always on the move and even though I know he doesn't do it intentionally, it gets to me after a while. Robert graciously went and put them in the bath so I could have a little bit of sanity. But I had to ruin that by going in there and smacking Baily's mouth because she kept drinking the bubble bath water after Robert kept telling her no a million times. Robert looked at me like he was appalled and I felt like the biggest jerk. I hate that but sometimes I don't know how to handle when she's so defiant and will not listen to what we tell her. I really need to work on my patience. Anyway before I was a jerk the kids were having fun. Baily was decorating her brother's head with bubbles and it was so cute. But back to SYTYCD- I'm rooting for Joshua. He's my fave for sure after tonight and I really want him to win. My second choice would be Katee. The only one I want to go home for sure is Mark but other than that I'm don't really care about the others. Mostly though I just want Joshua to win. So GOOOO Joshua! We had had family prayer and scriptures (3 for 3 this week- wahoo!) earlier so as soon as the show was over I put the kids to bed and they fell asleep fast since they were so tired. I'm grateful for that. I was able to get some stuff done for Primary and now I think I'll go join them in sleep land. Hopefully the whole sleep thing goes better tonight than last night.
