I am so proud of myself. I stuck to my guns yesterday. My daughter stayed in bed until 3 o'clock...when school ended. At 3:05 precisely I sprung her from her cell. What a difference this morning. She made a full transformation from a complete wreck to an absolute delight. She really is a chip off the old block. Without sleep, she does not function.
I spent the day diligently working doing all the yucky boring stuff I've been avoiding. YAY ME!
Some of you might be thinking-so what? What's the big deal. TRUST ME, it is a big deal for me. I am very good an getting in the car (okay minivan-whatever) and running around town getting things done. When it comes to staying in the house and puttering away at the minuscule little things that add up to a disaster when avoided, I stink.
I rewarded myself by watching an entire episode of "The Tudors" uninterrupted. Sort of. I can never truly watch anything for an hour, thank goodness for On Demand..so I can hit pause when someone needs me to wipe their butt or cut up an apple. My husband really should learn to use a knife! :)
Which leads me to another subject. My new obsession... I am really getting into this whole King Henry the Eighth thing and I need to discuss it! Later on I want to chat about "The Tudors," "The Other Boleyn Girl" (book as well as movie), Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Natalie Portman...all of it!
Oh and one final thing...(can you tell I've already had 2 cups of coffee and a Diet Coke this morning?) Tonight is the finale of "The Real Housewives of NYC!" Don't miss it...I'm sure there will be lots to talk about tomorrow.
Enough babbling. Gotta get my cute little 4 year old to school, then it's off to the elementary school to staple artwork. The art show is in one month...NEED MORE CAFFEINE!!!!
