Getting back to reality after a vacation makes me tired!
Yesterday was a rough day with work. Rough day with kids. I told Sam at one point if he didn't shape up I was going to sell him on eBay. It was one of those days. No naps, constant calls, and I even had help from my sweet mother-in-law for a few hours!
Last night the kids went to sleep at 8:30 - it was heaven! I totally understand why parents enforce a bedtime. HAHA - why have I never done this before? (He's name is Sam and he's 2 and doesn't do anything I say - it was a miracle he feel asleep so early!)
Instead of being productive - I sat on the couch and watched New Girl and The Mindy Project (so good). I then decided to be a little productive and pulled out a table runner to bind so I could justify watching the season premier of Private Practice. It was only 10 - so I got caught up on an episode or two of General Hospital. I could spend a month watching all the shows I want to get caught up on!
As I sat in my quiet house - everyone asleep but me, the windows open, the sound of rain - the fall decorations surround me - it was THE BEST NIGHT OF MY LIFE! Ok, not really - but a much needed break and mind numbing do nothing kind of night.
I went to bed and couldn't sleep (I'm having issues falling asleep and staying asleep lately - is this cause I'm getting old?) I pinned a little and checked in on my blogs and couldn't believe my eyes when I read this post. Do you see this?
The winners are:
1. Grand prize winner Abby Latimer
I've never won ANYTHING from blog giveaways - EVER. Not only did I win - but I won on a modabakeshop - the makings for a whole quilt!!!! I was so excited!
Once I got over my shock of winning - I went back to pinning - and saw this pin.
I woke Mike up because I couldn't stop laughing. Not sure if it was because I'm so exhausted that I found it funny, or because of the day I had - but come on - if you've ever seen Dora - you know what this pin is saying. And I couldn't stop laughing - for like 5 minutes. Laugh out loud, tears, laughing....crazy I know over Dora - but I was smiling as I finally fell asleep.
It was a good night.
