Chocolate cupcakes = calcium


I am so tired.

This morning I poured my cup of coffee before the machine was done making it.

Which doesn’t sound that desperate, until I tell you that we don’t have the ol’ pause-and-serve feature, so I had to mop up the counter and coffee pot when I was done.

Worth it!

Also, I was tempted to lap it up right from the spigot it comes out of, hamster-style.  So, really, I applaud my restraint.


Sometimes I wonder about my tiredness.

Why am I so tired?

I have even contemplated getting my thyroid checked.


Then, I remember what I have been doing, and it all becomes clear.


So far today, I have:

Made bread


(recipe coming soon!)

Cleaned the boys bathroom

Mopped the bathroom


Danced with my duster to some kids music

Swept the kitchen floor

Puzzle time with both boys

2 poopy diapers and one “Mommy I’m ready for a wipe!”

Organized our hall closet

Swept hall closet

Folded and put away 2 loads of laundry

Washed a load of cloth diapers

Fixed breakfast, snack, and lunch

Made cupcakes with Joseph

Frosted and sprinkled cupcakes

Cleaned up all of the above

Paint time for the boys



Sink bath for Isaac

Cleaned up paint time for the boys

Put both kids down for a nap.

And it’s only 1:27.


Really, I don’t mean to be complaining.  It’s been a lovely day so far, but it is a wonder that I am still upright.

In fact, as soon as I finish this post, my cupcakes and I are laying down to regroup.

Because the afternoon shift is coming in fast.

I think your thyroid is fine - looking at that list you have EVERY reason to be legitimately tired!
