morning? already?

i hate morning. isn’t that sad? i am looking out the window… and it’s a beautiful new day… and i have a headache and am not very interested in moving. i am still sitting in my bed trying to make a plan for today. i haven’t been this bad lately… in fact i have been getting up to run and it’s been feeling so great! — not today. in fact, (this is such a LAME parent moment…) at 7:20am we hear the DOORBELL and its the neighbors coming to get the kids for the bus. eric and i are still asleep and the kids haven’t come in to wake us up. we both kindof shoot up and look at the clock and simultaneously lay back down. eric suggests ‘rock paper scissors’ to see who has to go get the kids fed and now DRIVE them to school. he goes “one time only… loser goes”. i won. me-still sitting in bed! thank my lucky stars.
i need to get some grocery shopping done. i think that the decorating project is what is draining me! i need to spray paint some frames and i am excited cause i figured out how i want to hang the curtain panels. the jury is still out on the wall color. (i, of course, LOVE it- eric, however, NOT loving it!)
ok..gotta get moving.

    You need a little R&R every so often. Even if it means lazing around the house for a bit.
    I can’t wait to see your decorating project when it is complete!!

    I’d say about 15 years ago I woke up, went downstairs and saw the painter’s putting pink paint on our living room wall (my parents house is an old victorian). I called my mom at work and said “Mother, the walls are pink”, she said, oh no honey they are just slightly tinted pink just wait til’ it dries…. of course we all know paint dries darker. Let your hubby know my Dad survived a pink room until this past year when they repainted. Who knew my mother was ahead of the times.
    I tend to push myself until I completely burn out then I end up having a jammie day and watching lifetime TV for women. By the end of the movie I don’t know if I’m crying from the moving or exhaustion. I told everyone I was going out of town this weekend, reality, I’m locking myself in my creative space and having some down time.
    I hope you find some time to defuse soon.

    Love the pink! That’s a great color that you chose. We recently painted our kitchen pink (my husband, too, finally gave in) and it is fabulous. Only lovers of pink can appreciate it though!

    What a good man you have there! Well done, Eric! I love a man who drives the kids to school and leaves his wife in bed! That kinda sounds like how it should be. Hehehe!
