I AM: oh so very tired right now.

I WANT: to sleep until I wake up and then sleep some more.

I WISH: my house was clean, I was a size 9 and that I could keep my house clean.

I HATE: it when Paul rubs on me all night long. It makes me tired and cranky the next day. Of course, in his defense, I did kind of fall asleep while he was trying to be amorous last night.....but I still hate the rubbing during the night.

I MISS: Cousin Stacey.

I FEAR: that I am really screwing my kids up.

I HEAR: "I'll Be" by Edwin McCain

I WONDER: if I cover Paul up with his camouflage blanket, will I wake him up and ruin any chance I have of getting the bed to myself tonight?

I REGRET: not getting my tubes tied right after Kady was born. Insurance would've covered it
then. Now it looks like we're going to pay for a vasectomy. (Not for me. For him.)

I AM NOT: going to get enough sleep tonight.

I DANCE: when there are no grownups around.

I SING: all the time. I also hum constantly.

I CRY: at the drop of a freakin' hat.

I AM NOT ALWAYS: honest when I tell Paul I'm "tired". Sometimes I just flat don't want to.

I MAKE WITH MY HANDS: ...well, tonight, it was 14 tie-dyed t-shirts.

I WRITE: to make y'all laugh.

I CONFUSE: my husband. It's really not that hard, to be honest. And it's fun.

I NEED: a hot shower, a massage and a lot of sleep.

I SHOULD: go to bed.

I START: my day at 5:30 every morning. That is my least favorite part of my job.

I FINISH: my day by putting on chapstick before I turn out the light. Every night. I have incrediblyl soft lips, too.

I TAG: Mrs. Coach and Tater. Seriously, Tater. UPDATE THE BLOG, WILL YA?

I love these damn things - and I too finish each night with chapstick - this is how I know you are "good people".

Bad people have chapped lips. At least in my world.

Hey Diva-How much is a vasectomy? Steve needs one. LOL

I told him I was done with hospitals. Maybe he and your husband should go together to get one?? haha

Just FYI, a friend of mine works for a Urologist and said a vasectomy actually is only effective for about 7 years. Just something to ponder.....

We....the people
