One Tired Momma

It has been said that a picture is worth a thousand words. This picture of Missy depicts me at the end of this week...tired. It has been a good week, but it has also been a whirlwind week for us. Michael has worked an enormous amount of hours to bring a project to completion at work. The kids have all been out of school which has given us free time to play. We have done an abundance of that mixed with some farm work and housework and now I am tired. Need I say more about Pizza Hut for dinner? We don't usually get meals out, but upon occasion I throw up the white flag and surrender to a pizza brought back to our home.
My husband and I communicate on just about everything. This past week has found us unable to chat about daily things. He has been in an area that phone calls and emails are not available, and I have not had a working cell phone to reach me when I am out. This is a recipe for disaster. I had told 2 of our children that they could have friends spend the night. He told 2 more of our children they could have friends spend the night...this all happened last night. When it was all said and done we had 4 extra kids show up last night for a night of entertainment. The night was full of laughter and fun. That was all fine and dandy until I got tired of hearing laughter at 2:30 a.m. This Momma had had enough. Finally everybody was down for the count including myself.
I am thankful for the start of a new day and praying for an opportunity for a nap.
grace and peace,
