Stick a Fork in Me

This picture taken while looking for a campsite at 2 am this weekend.
[More on that later...]
I'm currently feeling more like C is looking in this picture than how I'm looking. The deliriously funny state of tired hasn't quite set in.

For some reason all I can think of today is that song that me and my sister Lindsay used to sing when we were younger that goes about like this: "Sometimes dontchya feel like you are drunk behind the wheel!" I'm sure there is a much more popular song with those same lyrics, but the tune is most likely different than what's going on in my head.

I am 100% burned out. My brain doesn't work right now.

I should be thinking about:

  1. dinner tonight

  2. softball game later

  3. finishing this article that's 75% done already

  4. designing

  5. scrapbooking

  6. networking

  7. projects, projects, projects

  8. how to get myself out of bed in the morning

  9. finding time to do everything that I want to/feel obligated to do

  10. try some of the millions of new recipes I've come across

  11. pick up my books from the library

  12. support C in his psycho school day today

  13. figure out how to help a beautiful, wonderful girl at my church whose husband decided he doesn't want to be married anymore. :(

  14. figure out how to be a better friend to a friend who's having a really, really hard day

  15. schedule visiting teaching

  16. catch up the checkbook [1st month trying REALLY hard to keep track of everything and I still forgot about $275 we had to pay to get a drain unclogged. sheesh.]

  17. transfer money to cover the dirt cheap car insurance C set up for us last month

  18. blog our garden/Moab trip 2.0/recipes for you lovely ladies

  19. design stuff for the multiple collabs I've committed to

  20. get almond milk to make yogurt with this weekend [and then blog that too.]

I'm not really stressed. I'm just tired, I think. Yesterday, I stayed an hour and a half late at work so I could finish the voice-overs on tutorial videos for our next product launch and I'm beat. [Not to mention I came in early yesterday, and every day for the past month...] And then, my colleague got laid off a couple days ago, so the number of accounts I'm managing just doubled.
And honestly, being a stay-at-home mom is tugging at my heartstrings every single morning and makes it quite difficult to get out of bed and go. When is it going to be my turn?


  1. We're in the middle of setting up car insurance right now... may I ask where you got it dirt cheap?? :)

  2. trying to remember the tune to that one...but Fastball is the only thing that's coming to memory. Hmm. I think you're brilliant, a tad highstrung, and so so talented. It will come. Let it rock. Let it roll. Order pizza. Hang with Cameron. Watch Parenthood. :)

  3. Wow! You have so much going on and you handle it all so well! I know you will be an awesome mom when the time comes, and you will teach your kids some amazing things about how to live life to the fullest!

  4. i agree with everyone. long list and i will tell you it never ends, i think it actually get longer the older you get...prioritize and enjoy the rock!! this may have just inspired another post for me...sorry, i am a copy cat, you know that!

  5. I read this with a huge smile on my face when I got to the tiny part at the bottom

    you and your twins give me hope. hope I need and am feeling sorry for myself about right now
