Sunday is such an amazing day!
I love the opportunity to rejuvenate. I get to refill my bucket that I dip into through the week.
It is a chance to set (or reset) goals.
It is a change from the week.
Even though there is the stress of getting everyone and everything ready, it is still peaceful.
We listen to different music. (Songs singing praise.)
We watch different movies. (Use to just say Disney, but now Veggie Tales or movies put out by the church.)
We hang out with different people. (Family or those in need.)
We serve differently. It's more focused. Instead of thinking about taking cookies/bread, it is teaching and sharing.

So this has been a long, hard week.
I have been reading a ton! I finally started reading some books by Traci Hunter Abramson. I really enjoy them. She used to work for the CIA, but then stayed home with her children. Any way, she's pretty good.
So yeah, been reading. Not sure if it helps to lay around reading, but it's been hard to concentrate on much, do much. O know I need to have some down time. I know I am lucky (Blessed really) that I have learned to work through the pain. I am blessed with an amazing husband who makes breakfast everyday. Who comes home and doesn't care what the house looks like, but will just jump in and start helping.
But what if I wanted to do something? What if I wanted to sew? What if I wanted to work on the basement? What about that?
I did finally get up Thursday afternoon and scraped the floor in the bathroom since we are going to be tiling it.
That felt good. Then not good later. But I was done doing nothing. Of course I paid for it today. Oh well. I read another book and watched the opening of the Olympics.

Today was so not good.
For starters, I didn't get enough sleep last night. I'm sure that made things worse.
I guess it just frustrates me that it's hard to function. Just when I think I can handle my situation, the pain becomes worse. Just when I think I might be able to focus and accomplish something, I have a hard time figuring out how to do something.
I spent the morning getting breakfast, had kids get breakfast (Delta made pancakes), and everyone got ready for the day.
I finished one book I had been reading, and started another. (I'm currently reading books by Traci Hunter Abramson.)
Jayden decided that we should go to the movie today. (We do the summer movie thingamajig, where you purchase tickets for the whole summer at half the price.)
Then after that we went to the library to borrow a movie (because the movie showing was different than the one advertised). The library didn't have it, but got a movie for me.
I let the kids have friends over, then I laid down and read some more.
Tony came home and is fixing dinner while I type this hoping that maybe getting my thoughts down will help me be able to handle how I feel.

So I'm getting exhausted! These late nights after busy-go-go-go-and-do days are wearing me out.
To the point where what ever you want to eat is fine with me.
Chips? For lunch? Sure, go ahead.
Ramen noodles for breakfast? And lunch? And dinner? Okay.
So when I came across this post on Instagram, I was very intrigued. It reminded me of how the beginning of summer looked. And I think I can still do nothing and it will work. Slushies made with apple juice and strawberries! Brilliant!
Because let's face it, I have no energy left for super awesome snacks!
So, yeah, head over to http://www.tipsfromatypicalmomblog.com/2016/08/ad-organize-fridge-freezer-back-school.html
