A little burnt...


I think I've finally come to the conclusion that I'm burning the candle at both ends a little more than I should be! Everything that I've been doing is catching up with me and it just means I need more sleep and a little more "me" time!

What with having the kids and then Sophia here 4 days a week as well plus working at the store about 3 or 4 days a week of late, it's been busy! It's not even just that though...I've been making the mistake of staying up too late after getting my second wind in the evening and then I just feel wiped in the morning. Kyle and Nathan waking up at 6am all week hasn't made it any better either! I need to make sure I'm getting to bed earlier and I think that'll make all the difference because I want to be able to enjoy the kids and not be grumpy with them! I really do enjoy getting out and going to work. I can't imagine not having the scrapbooking store to go to a few times a week! Helps keep me sane!


I have a few scrappy projects I want to be working on, so it's a matter of finding the time this week to do a couple of challenges and work with my new Scrapperie kit! I also saw a fantastic project on Tobi's blog that you really should check out! I so want to try this now! She replicated one of the great decorations that Starbucks has and it turned out so well! She's a very talented woman and teaches at the store I work in, so check it out!


Well, better run for now, but have an amazing day!
Cheers,
Colleen

Oh wouldn't it be nice to be able to thrive on a few short hours of sleep!? I do the same thing at night and then pay for it in the morning when my baby gets up!

Breathe woman! I am the same way right now...I stay up late for me time only to be tired and grouchy the next day.

It's a never ending battle!

Have a good day!
