I have been pretty much stuck on the hamster wheel of life lately. You know the one, right? The one where you just keep running and can’t catch up. The one where you’re constantly busy but never getting anything accomplished. The one where you are running towards no where. Yep. That’s the one. I’ve been living inside that hamster wheel for awhile now.
September was really busy. We were awake a lot. Not really wide eyed and bushy tail awake but the not sleeping kind of awake. I don’t want to jinx myself but last night marked the first night in weeks, maybe months now, that my babypants hasn’t been waking up every hour or two. Coming to a theater near you….well rested mama. Hopefully.
So while we were not sleeping it felt like we were really busy all the time. Busy getting absolutely nothing accomplished. Spinning our wheels and getting nowhere. Don’t get me wrong. I’m not trying to get anywhere crazy but simple places like the grocery store would be nice. September was much too busy and important for the mundane grocery store though. When Science Guy wasn’t jet hopping around the country and was actually home (which was rare), I was making him take me out to eat. The grocery store was too far a destination for the weak and weary. So was the laundry room. Also the vacuum cleaner seemed to be out of my reach from where I ran on the hamster wheel. In fact, just about most things were just a hair out of my reach.
I woke up this morning though with a to do list written in sharpie. Indelible sharpie. The markers dreams are made of. One night of sleep and a to do list written in sharpie….I’m ready to set the world on fire and blow this hamster wheel.
