Down Time

Whew! Everyone's gone home; Thanksgiving dinner is over and every thing cleaned up and put away; Itty Bitty's baptism went smoothly - the left over cake stuffed into the frig with the rest of the left overs. We all slept into today until about 8:45 a.m. I can't remember the last time I slept that late. Even the kiddos stayed in bed. Itty Bitty was very worn out from having extra family at the house, then the baptism and party yesterday. She slept through the night from about 11:30 p.m. until 8:30; she didn't even really wake up during the night to nurse. When I looked at the clock this morning, I started even worrying a little bit. But as soon as she woke up enough, she ate like a champ. And has been making up for it with nursing a lot during the day today. She's still worn out - sleeping a lot, but we all are. Unfortunately, hubby worked today to make up for the days off with the holiday. But Bug, Itty Bitty and I have been bums today. I've been catching up on laundry and putting the extra table and chairs away but other than that we've been dozing off and re-energizing ourselves for another full week of school for Bug, and volunteering, working and shopping for Mommy, and being dragged along for Itty Bitty. I'm not even going to the grocery store today. Just the thought of taking both kiddos into the grocery store is making me tired. I hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving!

I didn't even have family at my place, I didn't even have to cook anything or clean anything but I'm still wore out just from traveling to my mom's (which is funny considering she's only about 20-30 minutes away!) and spending a whole day with all my family. So I can only imagine how tired all you ladies that do cooking & hosting a dinner for family must feel! LOL.
