Gosh, for a while there I thought that the tiredness was going to skip me, because I had all the energy in the world......Then all of a sudden out of nowhere yesterday the tiredness hit me like ton of bricks, by 7:30pm I could barely keep my eyes open but I had to force myself to stay awake until I could get my 3 yr old son asleep, so finally I went to bed around 10pm, I barely made it in the bed and I immediately went to sleep (it normally takes me at least 1.5 hours to get to sleep), didn't even hear my alarm go off this morning so I woke up late and by 10am this morning I can barely keep my eyes open again, and I don't get off until 4:30!

For those who work full time and have young, extremely active children at home, how do you do it? Cause I need some tips on how to get through my day while being so darn exhausted.

Aww .Foxy! *hugs*

.Aly is our first child, so I didn't have any small ones to keep up with, but I was working a 40+ hour week, and man it was hard! And since everyone was telling me to cut the caffiene, I was one tired mess!

About the only thing I could do was nap as much as possible and eat healthy. Fruit gave me lots of energy.

Hang in there babe!

With having my 18 month old running me around the house all day, I get extremely tired. I cut back on my morning coffee which is making things worse but there isn't much I can do. I rest whenever is possible and my bedtime became a lot earlier.

I Hear Ya!
I am right there with you, foxy! I work around 45+ hours a week and I also have a three year old. It is very hard. It also usually takes me about 1.5 to 2 hours to fall asleep but the past week has been much different. It is nice in that I can fall asleep easy, but so hard in the morning! Living in the wa state dreariness doesn't help either. When I was pregnant with my son, we lived in az so my moods weren't as "up and down." oh, how I miss az right about now!


So, if you find out some tips...Clue me in! I would love to hear them.

P.S. Did I miss something? Are you pregnant now??? Sorry - I am blaming it on my pregnancy airhead fog stage. Yep, that is what I am blaming it on right now - nothing more. Laughing
