Mommy tiredness...


Right now, about 2:30 in the afternoon...I always hit the afternoon mommy tired-time. I'd like to say it was because of the pregnancy...but really I got tired around the same time before baby Peanut got in this body. However, my nightly tiredness...I can almost undoubtably contribute to the baby...I am a night owl, much to Gav's dismay, and so its weird to crash out on the couch almost nightly before 10 pm. It seems, though, all of a sudden, Gav has an unusual urge to stay up and do things in the night. Weirs...because hardly 2 months ago...he was the one falling asleep every night before 11pm. Interesting.

Maybe my body is extra sleepy...because since we have had the house on the market...it is perfectly clean day in and day out. So, in my spare time...instead of stressing about which part of the house really needs my attention....my body takes command and decides a nap sounds about right. Its a bizarre notion....to have a house clean 24-7 and only have to touch up when a potential buyer calls. Why didn't I think of this sooner? Keeping a clean house and only touching up as needed....quite the revelation to me=)

It's funny--keeping a clean house all the time seems like such a simple concept, but it is a lot of work! I think you're wise to give into the tiredness. Naps are wonderful things!

Your home is quite the size and definitely has a HUGE yard to maintain. So that is quite the task in itself. Hopefully you get "the" offer soon!!!

Good luck with the tiredness! And with your house! I have tried the "keep the house clean and just do touchups" but Dixie definitely has a different agenda. So for now I'm giving in. ...a messy house for the next couple of years isn't so bad, right?! :)

Can you believe we didn't discover the "clean" concept earlier? I find myself bored out of my mind b/c the house is clean all the time so I can't do that, and I can't do projects b/c it'll dirty it up. But it's SO NICE to have a clean house all the time!
I might try out the "clean all the time" concept in my next house and see how easy it is to keep up without having the motivation of selling!

Since my bestfriend falls asleep early now, it's all about Midnight PlayStation Madden Football with chocolate chip cookies and a tall glass of milk, G =)
