The PJ Pants Mystery

Lord, have mercy.  Some days, for no particular reason, are just tough.  From the moment I woke up today, I have been struggling to keep my eyes open.  My temper has been short.  My hair is a hot mess and I certainly overslept my alarm so a shower was quickly off my morning menu.

My sleep was very restless last night.  I tossed and turned a lot and I know that remember having several dreams, though I can't remember what any of them were.

When I climbed into bed last night, I remarked to my husband how cold I was and he recoiled at the ice cold touch of my foot.  But just to illustrate how "off" my day has been from the beginning, I will tell you that I woke up this morning without my pajama pants on.

I have no recollection whatsoever of taking my PJ pants off and my husband swears up and down that he had nothing to do with it.  It was very symbolic of my entire day so far though. 

So now I'm drinking caffeine like it's my job so I can make it through my actual job this evening without crashing and burning before closing time.  It's days like this that make me wish I didn't have to work evening and I could just recharge a bit tonight.

Also on my mind is my good friend Julie's son who goes to get his tonsils and adenoids taken out today so I am praying for a quick and smooth surgery and a recovery for the little man that involves chocolate malts and lots of lazy time!

I'm fighting the urge to toss a tray of cookies in the oven.  Chocolate chip cookies always seem like a great idea when I'm tired, cold, and crabby.

Tuesday night was "Crazy Hair Night" at church so we decided to do something wild to Isaiah's hair:

This could be the sleep deprived brain talking, but I actually kind of like a Mohawk on this kid.  I also love that he's making the sign for "I Love You" rather than some bad-boy devil horns symbol of some sort.

Perhaps yesterday's activities have something to do with my lethargy today.  Hard to say.

Have you filed your taxes yet?  We are dragging our feet a bit on that task because we want to find someone to do them for us this year because all the messy moving stuff last year is going to complicate things.  It's always a challenge to go in and get something like this done because that means that we have to haul all three boys with us and I always feel stressed when I have my entire wrecking crew with me in an office setting of some sort.  Nothing fun for them to do plus the requirement of reasonable volume plus parents needing to actually accomplish something is almost always a recipe for disaster.

Micah just started whining that "He's huuuuunnnngry!!!" even though we just got back from going out for lunch with Daddy.  That boy.

Did you see what happened yesterday?  Yesterday was a very exciting day around Arena Five because I ended up getting more than 4,600 hits to the blog!  I know that doesn't sound very impressive, but it's a pretty big deal for a teeny little blog like mine.  It's far and away the busiest day Arena Five has had!  How did this happen?  Fix your eyes on the screenshot that explains it all:

Yup, Becky Higgins herself linked to my blog on her Facebook page and within two hours I saw my traffic spike like crazy!  For those of you who are entrenched in the Project Life community as I am, you can understand why I was geeking out pretty intensely when my friend Sarah sent me this text while I was out picking up Isaiah from preschool:

Crazy!!!  It just goes to show how much of a dork I am because I was taking all these screenshots and stuff in anticipation of documenting her recognizing my work in my weekly Project Life album.  Thank you again to everyone who stopped by to offer compliments, congratulations, and to ask questions.  I felt like a mini celebrity for a couple hours!

I'm going to go snuggle with the boys on the couch and try not to fall asleep.  I promise to be perkier tomorrow!  :)

And I really wish I could remember taking off my PJ pants.  I was FREEZING this morning!
