The last 3 nights I have been so emotionally full and drained all at once. By the end of the night I can barely keep my eyes open long enough to say goodnight to the kiddos, let alone make it to bed in a timely fashion. Normally, this wouldn’t be a big deal. I would just let my body take over and head to bed. The issue as of late is I am about a month in a half behind in paperwork for our foster kiddos and I have been “going to do the girls hair” for about a solid 3 weeks now.
Doing the girls hair isn’t an easy feat. As in, we are talking about mid back length naturally curly 4c hair… Le sigh! Basically what that means is tons of detangling that does absolutely nothing because its tangled before I even get to the end of the hairs that I combing. Not complaining, because I am rather proud of myself for helping their hairs to grow that long. Just saying, its a lot of work.
Tonight I did Miss Marie’s head of hairs, because I tend to neglect hers more then her sisters. That was the longest process and I had to trim the ends. Lets just say, i just finished. I was about to head to bed when I remembered I hadn’t blogged for the night. And I’m just remembering I didn’t blog last night. Oh well, one day out of 30…
Today has been a great day, Miss Marie had a state gymnastics meet right outside of south Austin. She did her best performance yet, but still not enough to get her to Level 4… But we were able to hang out with close gymnastics friends and Mouse went with so it was a girls weekend. One where I’ve officially spent WAYYYY too much money. Yesterday Mouse’s Nutcracker family had a wine tasting fundraiser. Lets just say I walked away with three new wines to try out and a fe other things, ones I was for sure I would get out bid on. But didn’t… LOL!
I swear one of these days I will learn my lesson.
Anyways, todays truth is…. I have reached the stage in life where I fall asleep before my kiddos. Its down right depressing, and makes me chuckle all at the same time. I am looking forward to when I reach the stage of having energy again.
