Thursday Thirteen: Absent


There Will Be No Thursday Thirteen This Week

1. Because I am exhausted.
2. I am typing words with the letters reversed.
3. I was up at four this morning.
4. My brain was whirling with story ideas.
5. And then the day kicked in.
6. A workout
7. and then busy with kids.
8. I miss them being in school.
9. Even though they’re fun to be with.
10. When they’re not whining at each other.
11. And I need to finish my book for book club this week.
12. And have I mentioned
13. I’m totally addicted to the Tour de France???

    I love lists and random thoughts/posts like this. Let’s me know that I’m not alone in the chaotic, busy and often tired state of life. 🙂

    Sometimes it’s just too hard! But you managed to get something out of the day. Good for you! It is definitely an encouragement to those of us who also have trouble coming up with 13 things.

    There will be no comment today because I actually did a TT this week. 😛

    If there’s a mother alive who doesn’t experience 8, 9, 10, well, I’ll take your word for it (I don’t even what to meet them lol)

    I can totally absolutely relate. I can feel the exhaustion reverberating… and feeding off of my own horror stories of rebellious energetic children that somehow came from my womb yet have no respect for that idea..

    I’m just so happy to hear someone else admit that yes, summer with the kids is fun, but yes I miss getting all those things done that I did while they were in school.

    Your non-lists have got to be among the most original things in T13-dom.

    My brain has been whirling with ideas recently too. Usually in the small hours of the morning. I hope you manage to get some rest while watching the Tour.
