My ex and I discussed how he can start taking the kids more, especially during my upcoming sinus surgery recovery. Yes, Peter Pan, you are going to have to be Wendy for a while. He even laughed at that. But if he takes them, they may miss a lesson or Scouts or something. I am very careful not to over schedule my kids, but they still have activities! I don't know how to do this. I have been sleeping from about midnight to 2 pm this week (except for getting the kids off to school and walking the dog), and I am still too tired to get through dinner and bed time without ending up directing events from the sofa with a dark cloth covering my eyes. Sigh.
I did manage to get 2/3rds of the Christmas stuff packed up, in great part due to my son's extremely hyper mood. He was so hyper he didn't realize how many trips I had him running up and down the stairs. The un-decorating of the tree went by with only one burst of tears from A, which is pretty good! I really was starting to doubt whether I would get them down at all. Yeah! Can I do the last third? That remains to be seen. How tired will I be tomorrow?
My Mom is planning on coming over to help my finish the quilt I am making (and have been making, sort of, for the last two years) for A's b'day on Monday. I am worried I will be too tired to do anything and it will really end up being the quilt that Grama made. K's birthday party is 5 o'clock tomorrow. How will I feel? Spin the wheel of misery! What symptoms will you come up with today!!
Wish me luck. I can hardly wait for surgery so I can get some rest!! My perfect scenario?? I spend surgery day mildly sedated snoozing until they cancel it due to lack of time, and I will just have rested!!
Off to clean the kitchen!
