Not so Marvelous Monday...

This was one of those days when you just really don't want to get out of bed in the morning. I figured I would probably be tired, but I felt like I'd been run over by a truck! I've been dragging myself around for a while now with allergies bothering me and then not getting much sleep Friday night. I fee like I could sleep for about 16 hours and then might wake up feeling refreshed. That, however, we all know is not going to happen when you have 2 kids that get up at 6am and don't know what sleeping in is! One of them is already in bed again for a nap though and well have another this afternoon! The other will sleep for hours this afternoon would be my guess! Oh well...such is life!

I managed to get myself out of bed and jump in the shower and that helped a little. I'm on my first (big) cup of coffee, but there will no doubt be another too! I just have to remember to try and keep my patience in check when I'm like this because my fuse gets much shorter - particularly with Kyle and it's not really his fault other than that he's being 3! He was supposed to go to preschool this morning (and give me a break!), but as much as I don't want to, I'm keeping him home since his nose is still runny and he even sounds congested when he talks. I don't know if other parents bother since I've seen so many runny nosed kids at school, but I hope other people would as well. With any luck, he'll be OK to go on Wednesday!

I got one more layout done this weekend as part of a black and white challenge! It was challenging for me because I'm all about colour, but I like the way it turned out and it's just about how I'm now taking care of Sophia too. The two pictures with me in them were taken by Kyle! He sure loves the camera and taking pictures! I can only hope he enjoys photography as much as I do. He likes card making too, so maybe he'll even want to scrap with me as he gets a little older?!

Well, Kyle and I are going to play the matching game while Nathan and Sophia are napping, so I'd better be off!

I think today was like that for a lot of people. Its 2:40, and I'd like nothing more than to cuddle up on the couch and take a nap. I had a hard time waking up this morning, and what little bit of energy I had is long gone now. ~*~Happy Monday!~*~
