I am dog tired.
As tired as a dog. Like a dog who is super tired. (I’m not really sure where that expression originated from but I just don’t get it.)
I’m this close to belly flopping into bed but first wanted to tell you a little bit about our Thursday. We went to Asheville to do a little shopping – Katy, Henry, Clara, Charlie Ruth, Porter and I. That’s right – two adults, two kids and two nursing babies. Not sure we thought that one through, Kate. What is it about shopping that makes you SO tired?!! I always feel exhausted – maybe it’s because where we live you have to drive at least an hour away to really “shop.” Is it the drive?? The kids? (yes) Not enough water? I come home and just lay like a zombie on the couch for the rest of the night.
The day started off GREAT – Porter slept until 5am and I was able to get in a longer morning run (with some sprints at the track thrown in!). Fingers crossed that this is the start of him sleeping through the night! It felt really good to get out there for a workout before anyone else woke up. The rest of the day was dictated by nursing schedules, bathroom breaks, meals, snacks and diaper changes – it was nice to have that little piece all to myself.
I’ll let the pics tell the rest of the story.
And yep – all I bought were snacks. Snacks and cereal.
Have the best weekend, friends! Come back Monday for a RECIPE <-that’s right…a recipe. Stop laughing, Dad.
QUESTION: Does shopping just suck all your energy out of you?? Just me?
