OhmygoshIamsotired.
Oh.my.gosh.I.am.so.tired.
Ohmygosh....I am so. tired.

If I say it enough different ways, maybe I won't feel that way anymore.

It was one of "those" nights for me. Fell asleep at about 10ish and then woke up magically - wide awake! - at 1:30am.

I tried to coax myself back to sleep, but it didn't work. wide. awake. ugh.

So, I got up and came to the computer to write a thousand emails and do some of the million things I have to do this week.

Then, at 5:30am, I dragged my tired body back to bed and laid down to catch some more winks.

wide. awake.

Have you ever experienced that?

My body was so. tired.

But, my brain was going a hundred miles per hour and not wanting to rest.

So, I got back up. made a hot baked oatmeal breakfast. got the kids up and ready for school. and as they were eating their breakfast, 10 minutes before we had to leave, it hit me.

zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz..........

mom? mom? MOM!?

8:10am. I felt like I was drugged. I drove them to school (I think) and dropped them off and then came home to fall back to sleep.

wide awake.

no WAY!

So, I did what any exhausted tired woman would do. I read the bible. And just as I was fallin asleep... I read this part of Isaiah...

Awake, awake! Clothe yourself with strength,
O arm of the LORD;
awake, as in days gone by,
as in generations of old.

It was just too funny

Oh, you poor thing! I haven't had too many of these experiences, but I can sleep through the craziest things. Just think you can get some great sleep this weekend.

The worst is having to drive when you are so tired like that. It's scarey! Now go take a nap, you need it.

(I don't know how I missed this post, it never showed up in bloglines, hmmmm. Maybe I can't trust bloglines anymore.)

hehe, funny how the bible verses you read can correspond with your everyday life when you least expect it...
