Today I woke from my (still) broken slumber to a sore jaw. Temporomandibular joint disorder*. This is a sure sign for me that I have been grinding my teeth (I know. An extremely attractive habit and one that you wish you could acquire I am sure!). I only do that when I am stressed.
I am behind the eight ball in most areas of my life. Parenting, school-Mum duties, work, domestic goddess chores, blogging, wifely matters and of course, friendships.
I spent some of my day today looking at my current workload, working out the things that I can complete and the things I can't. I delegated some tasks at work. Prepared for some meetings I have coming up that need some clear headed thought. Made some telephone calls in my lunch hour that I had been meaning to make for ages. Booked our camping trip in October. Did some regular stretches throughout the day. Drank lots of water.
I came home from work and took some Nurofen. I then had some extra cuddles with my four gorgeous children. I've decided to 'have a night off' and will be off to bed early tonight. I know I owe a lot of you some blog love and I am desperate to catch up on the past few days of your lives through your blog posts, but I am afraid that that will all have to wait a couple of days.
Tomorrow I have a full day packed with parenting madness and then a sleepover at the Children's Hospital with Doo Dah to investigate his snoring issues (my one good sleeper!). So you will see me again on Friday night at 10pm EST when I will be hosting another edition of the Weekend Rewind. If you haven't joined us in the past, please stop by to see what all the fuss is about. It is loads of fun and ever so easy to participate in.
Have you ever slept over at a hospital? What was your experience like? Aside from the dreadful food?
*Don't worry too much about the TMJ. It will be gone as soon as I stop grinding my teeth. Which will happen as soon as I stop stressing about things. Which will happen as soon as I stop thinking about things...
