I am working on a little sumthin' to show ya'll soon, but please forgive the lack of posting in the meantime.

And let's just say that the start of the kids' school year is kicking my butt. I am so tired! I move like a turtle in the morning and getting into the shower first thing is starting my day off very badly. Who wants to climb out of a warm bed and get sprayed by water? Not me. I would much rather go downstairs and curl up with my Bible and a cup of coffee until I start to feel human.

And let's not even start talking about homework because I might start to sound bitter.

I just can't wait until the kids start needing matching socks every day. Then the madness will truly be in full swing.

Matching socks are highly over-rated. Don't even go there.

Curled up w/ Bible and coffee is absolutely the PERFECT way to start the day. LOVE that.

As for me, today I'm considering boarding school for my precious treasures.

oh I hear ya girlfriend! i actually grab my coffee when i get up and then after the older kids are in school i hit the shower because the bathrooms get filled up quickly with the kids getting ready for school. fortunately, i don't have to get out of the van for anyone to see me in my pj's when i drop them off at school.

Yeah, I thought life would be so much easier with all the kids in school but not so much. I am so stinkin' busy and with the last of them getting home at 4pm, I feel like they barely have time to settle into play time before we are doing homework, making dinner, and getting ready for bed.

On the shower issue, I feel lucky if I get showered every other day and before 1pm in the afternoon. ;)

Ha! If I am lucky I get into the shower by 2 or 3 in the afternoon. Heaven help anyone that comes to my front door! Let's all grab our Bibles, our drugs of choice (I mean coffees) and meet somewhere tropical.

Praying for you my friend. I am right there with you! School is making me tired!

Oh trust me.....starting off with a shower first and THEN Bible reading has it's merits.

Many a morning I find myself dozed off Bible open dutifully. Maybe I should shower first to wake up better! LOL

I'm just so TIRED! LOL

Skip the Shower--go for the Starbucks! 'Nuff said! :)

Can't wait for the surprise!!!

Shelly said...

Oh...you are too funny! A shower first thing in the morning is like waking up at the beach for me. I can't think straight till I've had one...and I LOVE to pray for the focus of my day. So glad God makes us all so unique!!

As for the matching socks...I agree with Lori. They are highly over-rated! And...mismatches are much more fun!

I LOVE the comments about matching socks being overrated :) We actually started wearing mismatched ones ON PURPOSE, (at least when long pants season is here) when I realized, who is going care anyway?!?!? And I just might start a new fashion trend...of being HIP when your socks don't match :)
