the whole sleep thing is too much

Sunday, July 20, 2008

Ok, I made the goal to get up at 6 am every morning. that's it. not to get up and exercise, just to drag my butt out of bed. I literally have 30 days until school starts and I can't seem to do it. Saturday morning I didn't have the kids so, it was oh so nice to sleep in a bit! I went out to get a coffee pot (never much of a coffee drinker), in hopes that the smell of fresh brewed coffee would remind me to GET UP! But, my bedroom is too far from the kitchen to even smell it. Plus it is sooo hot here, any hot liquids do not sound great. However, I am making iced coffee and really do like that. Last night I put the kids to bed in their room in hopes to get a better nights sleep. Not the case at all. Nate woke up at midnight needing something to drink, then at 2 she cried and wanted me to sleep with her in the bed. I crawled onto the foot of the bed and fell asleep until 3, went into my room. at 4, nate came in my room and cried to sleep with me (i have no will power at 4 am to a crying child. whatever you want to stop crying so i can go back to sleep!) soon after, brie realized she was alone in her room, and cried. fianally went back to sleep (or i did, who knows!) and she flipped out because there was a lightening bug in her room. she was screaming and crying and before you know it, my bed was full of too many arms and legs once again. didn't smell the coffee this morning either, and by the time i actually got up, the machine had shut itself off! 8:30 am i finally pulled us all out of bed to go to church. hey, we were only an half hour late, but we did all get breakfast. maybe i should just try monday-friday first. **sigh**
