I thought I was exhausted last summer. Every December, I think I'm exhausted again. But, this time I know, truly, I'M EXHAUSTED.
My house is dirty. So is my laundry. Thank goodness, my kids can bathe themselves - or we all know, they would be dirty too. Scratch that, they are dirty. No, not really. They are not smelly, but their rooms are a mess.
My mom and my sister have been in town. Nolan's continuation was on Monday. Friday night was the "end of the year party" down the street. Seven boys spent the night. I went to bed early. I woke up at 1:30 and asked if they wanted pizza. I turned the oven on and poured myself a bottle of wine..... ;-) Oh, I'm sorry, that was a glass of wine. At 4am, it was bedtime. I slept til 8. They slept til 10.
I"M TIRED. I'm also not complaining. Well, yes, I am, but I'm thankful I can complain. I do love the chaos. The craziness. This last year has helped put it all in perspective.
For continuation, this group of kids, actually planned ahead - TP'd the school - and slept on the field in their tents. Quite honestly, it was a proud, sad, happy moment. Wow. What a great group of kids. What a great group of dads whom volunteered to chaperone.
School is over. I have to go to New York tomorrow for A DAY. Seriously? A four hour flight for a two hour meeting??? Who is this girl?
My mom is here. My sister is with my cousin. I have an intern in the office. Boys to dads. Leaving in the morning for New York. I'm TIRED. OF ALL THIS.
Oh Gypsy Girl where are you????? I didn't miss all this. Or maybe, I did. For a moment.
It's all going to be worth it. Right? If you are unsure of what an IRONMAN is - look it up. Because, that would make my life look like a walk in the park. And, I wouldn't trade it for anything.
