Jones is still having a hard time with the start of school and both boys have decided to respond to the stress by not sleeping. I have issues with insomnia on a good night, so being woken up several times a night and not being able to fall back to sleep is leading to one tired mommy. So, I’m physically exhausted from not sleeping and emotionally and mentally exhausted from trying to help ease Jones’ transition.
So, no TIART today. No giveaway winner today. Heck, not even any running today. I just wasn’t feeling the love, plus I’ve tweaked a muscle in my shoulder/back and it hurts to breathe too deeply/lift my arm/sleep. I’m stretching and icing and it’s improving, but I decided that with everything else going on, I need to just give myself a break.
Oh, and the runner who pushed me into traffic? I’m sure it wasn’t intentional, but she had her ipod on and was walking on the left. Just as I decided to pass her on the right, she decided to not only start running, but to move right as she started. I had to jump off the curb. I’m pretty sure I scared her though, as I yelled “Excuse me” and she jumped about three feet. If you’re gonna listen to an ipod in a heavy traffic, heavy pedestrian area, at least turn down the volume.
Ok, enough of the Debbie Downer post. We have a nice weekend planned. Jones’ artwork is being displayed at the local Arts Center as part of their summer class exhibition, we are going to a brewpub to pick out the beer for our big annual party, we are hitting a local corn maze, and the neighborhood block party is this weekend. Now I just need to figure out where to squeeze in the run I missed today (and the already planned 10 miler).

His artwork in a gallery? That's so cool!
Hang in there! I can feel the exhaustion in your post. That is WAY cool about Jones the artist!
Sounds like a good weekend to help balance this week. Hope you get some sleep in there too! 🙂
Take it easy, girl. This crap manages to work itself out in the end. Enjoy your weekend!
I feel you on the ipod!! Hope you have a good weekend 🙂
Sorry to hear that Jones is having a rought start to the new school year and that this has caused sleeplessness all around! Hopefully, you all get some rest this weekend!
I hope today is better!
An actual art gallery is WAY better than on the fridge with a magnet. :o)
Sorry you're having a rough week – hope the weekend is better and you can get some sleep!
Feel better! I hope the kids settle down soon for you too.
aww. Poor little buddy – I hope that his angst works itself out soon and he can settle into the routine.Sorry to hear that you are also not getting enough sleep 🙂 I commiserate. Have fun picking out beer!
Ohh yeah – ipods can be so dangerous when people crank them up and don't pay attention. Hope you have a nice, relaxing weekend. Sounds like you need it!
