Sweet Sleep

This whole time change is throwing me way off. I just looked at the clock thinking it was going to say midnight...it's only 10 . How long does it take to get used to it? Why don't I remember have any issues before? Am I getting old? Where am I? Who are all these people?

Maybe it just has to do with the whole 9 months pregnant thing...yes that's what I'll say it is. Because, as I stated before I can only use this for 3 more weeks, so there it is. I am exhausted and thought it was midnight because I am exhausted and 9 months pregnant. And I'm so exhausted that I'm starting to repeat myself.

Asher has a "list" that starts the day after Christmas. This list is somewhat imaginary because quite frankly it's so long he forgets half the stuff he put on it. It's just him walking down the aisle saying "put that on my list... and that... and that!" And me going "Ok, Asher it's on your list." Every commercial too, darn those toy commercials. And guess who he passed this cute little habit on to? Apparently Bella wants the entire cast of Dora on her "list." That's not even possible. Do you want to know how many times a day I hear "put that on my list!"...No, you don't. You'd try to steal my vacation to Mexico if you did.

So do you know what I would LOVE on my "list?" Besides my son's energy...one of those windows for my car like limos have so I could roll it up whenever I wanted. Which would basically be always. I'm sorry I love my kids..dearly, you know I do. But something about being in close confined quarters brings out the worst in us all. Thank God for seat belts and car seats and threats of a cop being behind us to keep them in line. And why oh why do my kids beg me to turn up the music and then try to ask me a question 10 seconds later? Anyone??

I don't know where that came from. Now I'm going off on a completely random tangent. I was talking about the time change, right?

I'm tired. Really tired. I've tried to get a nap over the last couple days but even with my door shut, pillow over my head, and daddy watching them (or football?) I can't get one. Every time I start to drift off a little screeching noise wakes me up. That screeching noise would be my sweet daughter vocalizing her annoyance with her big brother. It's only been happening recently. I'm blaming the cold medicine, bless her heart.

But really, why the time change? Can someone tell me who it benefits because I'm really curious. I'd google it like I do all the other answers to my undying questions but my eyes are burning and I need to sleep while the screecher is sleeping. And yes,I am aware that I didn't make my post last night, but I fell asleep. True story.

I have so much I am thankful for including my well intentioned, football watching husband, my energizer bunny and my screecher, but mostly right now I'm thankful for sleep.

Thank you for the sweet sleep that your word promises Lord...because I need it tonight.

Proverbs 3:24- "When you lie down, your sleep will be sweet"
