I feel so scatter-brained and TIRED all the time, but I don't want to give up on this outlet, so I thought I'd share just a few tidbits so y'all know we're still kickin' over here. :)
14 - number of dance festival costumes I am helping to finish/put together for the priest/laurel couples for Saturday night's performance. Thanks to the uber-talented other women who have all sewed and hemmed the dresses together, I am adding the fringe and making headbands (WHICH I owe Stacy a huge thank you for making last night's "The Bachelor" a work party.)
6 - number of dance practices for aforementioned dance festival THIS WEEK! Anything for the kids, right?
1 - number of inches my hair has grown out since my last color job. Luckily I'm getting my hairs done this afternoon.
2 - number of nights I stayed up WAY to late this week. Of course, The Bachelor keeps me up on [Monday] nights even though it's practically painful watching all the catty women fight over "the sexiest Bachelor yet"'s affections. I just can't argue with the good conversation (I just hope Erin blogs about her afternoon yesterday) and food (like heavenly pumpkin cupcakes with real whipped cream on top.) We did get out of their last night at a better hour of midnight, but I was nearly falling asleep on the way home. Saturday night I finally got to sleep around 3am after scrappin' til midnight, talking to Erin until 1am, feeling gross in bed until 2am when Brock wandered into our room, and then until 3am while Brock kicked at me when I went to lie down with him.
2 - number of pages I finished in 6 hours. Can we all just say it? Sarah's a machine!
7 - number of days it's taken me to get my room cleaned . . . oh, wait, it's not done.
2 - number of migraine headaches that I've had this week. Moving into that phase is so lovely. Thursday I woke up with one (doesn't that defy logic?) and was down for pretty much all day. Sunday I was at choir and BAM got socked with another one. My poor kids are getting used to me "taking rests" and Tyler's not getting used to the house looking like I've been "taking rests." Such is life. My SUPER-DOOPER Visiting Teachers helped me this past week a ton, but not because they had to, because they're my friends. Donna brought me a darling "dealing with the icks" bag with cheese, crackers, nuts, kool-aid, and some onesies and then Sherry ended up keeping my boys for a couple hours when she called and I was ice-packing my migraine Thursday. Both were SO sweet and much appreciated. Both of them were headed out of town the days they helped me, and I'm sure it wasn't convenient or what they wanted to be doing when they had packing, their own kids, etc., but Thanks girls! You da best!
Anyway, there's a few tidbits. I know, hardly worthy of a glance, but I'll write more when I get a chance. Headed to the Halloween store for . . .
3 - number of my kids' costumes I need to finish putting together today before Kenzie's dance class.
