Wanted: Rest

I'm really hopeful that maybe sometime by the middle of this week I'll have some time to rest...
I fell asleep yesterday in the car in the parking lot at Meijer.  I held on long enough to park, and then I fell asleep.  My daughter was reading her book, and read for another five minutes before starting the, "Um, Mommy, are we going in?". 
I fell asleep at my grandmother's house yesterday as we were celebrating my mom's birthday.
I fell asleep in my boyfriend's car today, in the parking lot at Cracker Barrel, of all places...he let me rest until they called our name, then he woke me up to go and eat lunch.
I fell asleep again on the couch watching "The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe" with my daughter tonight, and finally in my room a couple of hours ago, while waiting for a website to pull up.
I have to go the dentist Monday afternoon for my final root canal appointment (I'm getting the permanent crown put in), and it's a safe bet that I'll fall asleep in the dentist's chair.
I've been so tired that I've been skipping writing in my journal and catching up with others, and I hate missing out!  Plus my housekeeping has gone by the wayside...
The main culprits of my sleep deprivation have been the birthday celebrating, and working on VBS (which ended officially today, to great success!), and work, and ferrying my daughter to softball AND volleyball practices AND games.
I think Thursday I don't have anything going on, I'm going to try and rest then!
Now to celebrate a successful HeroQuest, here is a look at the much-loved and coveted Bruce Lee poster:

  1. Hi Sweets,

    You really need your sleep.  I know it hard with so much going on in your life right now.  I am now worried about you.  I keep you and your family in my prayers.  By the way, how is your auntie?  Anyway, I know you are very stressed and need to rest.  It is a good thing you did not go to summer school.  

    I am glad you your vacation Bible School was a success.  Our church just finished today too and they had 13 children.  They put on a skit in church today.  I could not help out since I had a test to study for last week along with a term paper to do.  What part of the VBS did you work in?

    My husband is a Bruce Lee fan.  He loves the martial arts.


  2. For the longest time I have pulled over and closed my eyes for about 15 to 20 minutes!  It is a drag. Then about a week or so ago I began to take my regiment of vitamins again. Worked like a charm!

  3. Bless you heart! I hope you get some rest soon.


  4. you need to catch up on some sleep!!  I know how you feel tho, Josh is still keeping me up all night.  once I got caught up I felt so much better...but I am right back to where you are after one night!  Hang in there and try and catch some sleep any way you can till you can totally catch up!!  
    I'm glad vbs went so good for you and your mom too!!
    Get some rest!!!  Hugs, Julie

  5. Sounds like you need a long rest  john

  6. You most definitely need some sleep!  Wow!  Falling asleep all over the place.  Woman, you must be exhausted!!!  I hope you can catch up soon.  If you don't take care of you first, then you can't take care of anybody, remember that.  Hugs!!!!
