I am so tired.  Sososososososo tired.  No, not just tired but bone-wearingly, exhausted.


I remember being tired with my DD, even with my lost pregnancies, but this is crazy. 


Within an hour of getting up in the morning, I'm ready for a nap.  By afternoon, I can hardly summon the will to read a book to my little bookworm. I just want to curl in a ball and close my eyes and sleep, sleep, sleep.


Of course, it doesn't help that I'm suffering from middle of the night insomnia.

I'm not sleepy, but I feel exhausted. Like just lifting my arms or walking is too much effort.

Tired to the core. I can sleep for the first few hours after I go to bed but then wake up and can't fall back to sleep until the sun starts to come up and then my boys wake up =(. Luckily I don't have any problem falling asleep durring the boy's nap time.

i feel so so so tired, and am glad that yl feel the same. Drives me a little nuts. It doesn't help that we are having a crazy heat wave too. I'm so unmotivated! At least I'm getting a lot of reading done... that is something I suppose.


Tonight I went to the store to buy everything needed to make homemade pizza, came home, put it all on the counter, pulled out the cutting board, walked over to the phone and ordered in. 


this is so not how I usually am. i love to cook. tonight though it just was not going to happen. oh well.

Once I get to sleep, I've been sleeping 10 hours or so. I wake up feeling like I didn't get any sleep. My husband was laid off, so he's home and I can take a nap if I want. That is, if I can get to sleep. I've tried twice today only to just get up because there was no hope.
