Oh My Goodness

I am tired.  Like headache, could fall asleep right when my head hit the pillow tired.  I think I have a problem with taking too much on.  Eh?  The real problem is that I like to make things for people for Christmas.  Now on its own, that's not a problem.  But, when it comes to having a baby running around and not being great at sewing, or really having the necessary space, it becomes a problem.

Let's far I've made five scarfs (one still needs to be made and three of them need to be stitched by hand to close the gaps), three crowns, three ribbon wands, two pencil roll-ups, one train roll-up, one onesie, a few fabric letters, four small hand warmers, and two fabric memory games.  I still need to make a rice-filled heating pad, two recipe card boxes, more fabric letters, a car roll-up, and something for Miles.

Oy vey.

It makes me laugh, though.  I was so super stoked to get all of my pictures edited so I could work on Christmas projects and now I'm so super stoked to be done with all of them.  I'm just worn out.  These projects have messed up our schedule around here.  Anna doesn't go to sleep until midnight (which is fairly normal since I stay home with her so there's no real reason to wake up early if it's just a normal day), and she sleeps for 12 hours normally.  So, she wakes up between 12 and 12:30 generally.  The other day she didn't fall asleep until 1ish so she woke up around 1:15.  Goodness.  I've been going to sleep between 3 and 4 lately and I'm not a fan of that.  I really haven't even been very tired when laying down which leads to its own issues.  Usually I don't have trouble falling asleep, but since I've been doing so much right up until bed time I have trouble winding down.  Also, when I'm laying there with my eyes closed I'll start to think about where my eyes are pointed.  Then, when I do that they start to feel like they're looking in the corner of my eye, then I get uncomfortable and have to open my eyes and try again.  It's obnoxious and downright strange.

I don't think I'll have that problem tonight, though. 

Anna got to sleep around 11:30, and I would have followed shortly after.  But, Miles is running a paper route for our landlord this week so he's napping until 2 so I'm staying up so I can wake him up.  He doesn't want to take the chance of not waking up, and frankly I don't blame him.  With as tired as I am I probably wouldn't hear my alarm if it went off.

Oh!  Starting Monday (I think) I'm going to start doing the 30-Day Shred!  It's a workout video by Jillian Michaels that's supposed to be super spectacular.  In general I lack motivation, determination, and discipline so I think having an already set timeline will be helpful.  Also, I think the workouts are all only 20 minutes, so it shouldn't be too bad.  I'm stoked about it.  So, maybe one day I can post some before and after pictures...maybe.

Also, I'm sick...ish.  I woke up this morning feeling stuffy in my sinuses.  It got a bit better as the day went on, but sadly, it's back.  I've also been sneezing a bit and have a headache (though that's probably more just because I'm tired).  Anna's been stuffy lately so maybe I got it from her.  Oh well, I just hope we both feel better soon.  This is no fun.
