Well two out of three isn't bad! I managed to skip church today, but in my defense, let me just say that I DID attend my four hour long presidency meeting! (Rather than being damned for skipping church, I consider myself "blessings owed" for that very reason!)
Let me explain.
The boy had nightmares last night, so I finally just crawled into bed with him...until 3 a.m when I couldn't take any more [barely-hanging-onto-the-bed-so-my-son-can-sleep-while-drooling-on-my-pillow] lack of rest. Hence, I didn't feel up to battling all three kids at church during their usual lunch and naptimes! (Accordingly, my husband didn't feel like sticking a thousand needles in HIS eyes either, so we opted for the "home schooling approach" to the sabbath.)
As you've probably already guessed, I woke up this morning feeling crappy. When my husband got home from his meeting, I told him point blank that I was going back to bed. And I think Mr. Barefoot might be having a good influence on him (see in other news) because I slept like a rock! And when I got up, the house was clean AND in one piece, my children were all HAPPY, and I was well-rested! What an amazing day!
Now, after my full night of planning, decision-making, and (at times) sheer boredom discussing the NEXT 6 MONTHS of YW, I'm exhausted!
...though I just might have time to cross off everything on my Sunday agenda...technically, there are still two hours left in my day!
