Today, I am worn out. I woke up feeling not a bit refreshed, but just as exhausted as when my head hit the pillow eight hours earlier. So I took the easy way our, popping in a Mighty Machines movie for Caleb, gave him breakfast (his choice today was a hot dog), and collapsed into the recliner. An hour an a half later, first movie over, second started, and I fell right back asleep. Again, next thing I knew, the movie was over, and it was lunch time. Mac & cheese, Cars, and yet again, I was in and out of sleep in the chair.
This is highly unusual, especially how perfect it looks outside. Why I can't muster any energy is beyond me. Coffee, brownies, protein... nothing is waking me up. Bleh. Tomorrow will be better, and I'll be the good, involved mommy I should be.
On a better note, we had such an incredible dinner last night, I just have to share.
Eric's masterful grilled chicken in a tortilla wrap with fresh romaine lettuce, roasted red peppers, feta cheese, and bacon. I made some quick gnocchi and drizzled it with olive oil mixed with basil fresh from our garden, pepper, Parmesan cheese, and Italian seasoning. We ate on the patio in our backyard, and it was the perfect temperature with a light breeze, and we were in heaven. It really was a wonderful evening.
