It's about me this time!

How about another round of 'Random Things'. But this time about me!

-My energy level has tanked. Like, I could fall asleep right now as I type and my mouth is in a permanent yawn. There are probably many different reasons for this but I'm betting the biggest one is that I find it impossible to fall asleep before midnight every night.

-I have finally, and for the last time ever, quit smoking. It only took almost 17 years after I first started to be able to say it and mean it. And over the last week I've been tested, let me tell you. Probably the worst. time. ever. to quit but we can't predict what life throws at us.

-I'm going back and forth between saving up to buy a treadmill and trying to find a gym buddy and joining Spa Lady. The treadmill would probably be more cost effective but the gym! They have Zumba classes! That I'd probably never attend but still!

(This is where Jeff pipes in and reminds me that a) where the fuck would we put a treadmill? and b) I couldn't find the time to go to the gym before so what's changed? And I would say: Darling, I let you babble on about all your crap. Let me do the same.)

(But I am serious about wanting to do one of those 2 things. I've got it all planned out.)

-I'm in the process of growing out my hair. I'm an idiot and assumed that all I'd have to do is not go to my hair stylist. A word of warning to anyone trying to grow out a pixie cut, you still need to have your hair looked after or else it'll look like a big 'ol poofball. That, or you'll look like a sheepdog with all that damn hair in your eyes. It's not very attractive. Luckily I have an appointment this evening and I can go back to being stunning. Phew.

-One more thing, and you knew I wouldn't be able to not mention my kids right? This whole no-energy thing is making for one not very fun house right now. Because in addition to me being exhausted, the kids are no longer napping which means they are extra lovable and charming come about 2:30 in the afternoon. It makes it hard to keep tempers even and the yelling to a minimum. And that goes for EVERYONE in the house. We're all bitchy lately. I'm really wishing for one of those 'Easy' buttons about now.

On that note, I've got one child (I'll give you one guess who) whining and pointing at the fridge for some YOOOOGURRRRT. I've been told.

Chamomile tea is my friend. Breakfast for dinner is sometimes the best dinner a girl could have. Or my absolute favorite: FEND FOR YOURSELVES (aka leftovers, and I am not getting it for you!) And sometimes, I say 'screw it' and leave the kitchen a disaster overnight.
Blur seems to have shunned the naps as well, and she's not the kind to whine so much as she's the kind to become TAZ for 4 hours at night, and drive absolutely everyone else bonkers.

I can't sleep before midnight either. It's so frustrating and luckily I don't have to get up in the morning for anything, but if I did it would be a huge problem. I'm totally sorry for you on that one. :( Good luck with the gym or the treadmill or whatever you decide to do. I'd love to have a gym buddy too. That would definitely make it easier to get motivated.

So happy you quit smoking Chani! Now, I have to quit drinking, and we'll all be fab! :)

Good luck on quitting smoking! You'll be so proud of yourself once you get past this
