From the Midst of the Fog

I don't know if it has been the week of high temperatures and humidity that has put my brain in a fog, or what. Perhaps I was out in the sun for a little too long yesterday when I was hanging my laundry outside to dry. Which it baked quite quickly by the way.

This week has found me rising earlier than normal. My youngest son has been participating in a day camp and he needs to be at the area middle school shortly after 7 AM. Neither he or myself are very early risers. I didn't have any trouble getting up this morning at 5:30 AM and was amazed at how much I had accomplished before lunch, but the afternoons are what get to me.... my mind begins to fuzz and blurr.

I think it doesn't help that I have so many things that I am trying to keep straight - doctor appointments that need to be made, correspondence and phone calls that need returned and then there always is the HOUSE. I have so much cleaning I desire to get accomplished, but have not gotten very far. Perhaps I will do much better when both my guys are away to camp and I am forced to actually do something.

I looked at the calendar and realized that it is only Tuesday. It feels like it should be at least Thursday by now. Have you ever had one of those weeks? I don't know if it's one of those mid life things where the brain is getting a little fuzzy or if I can blame it on the heat. Maybe I need to go eat some chocolate. :)

I feel the same way! It has been unbearably hot here in the Piedmont of NC. I have told my kids and husband all week that the heat has killed some of my brain cells!
I am with you on getting up early, it's just not for me! LOL! But, no matter how late I sleep, the afternoons are rough for me. I always get the urge to lay down for a nap, but that is hard for a homeschool mom to do.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts and I will visit your blog again! I enjoyed it!

Oh how I can relate! And...YES!....let's DO blame it on mid-life and the hot muggy weather! ha (I'm down here in muggy Mississippi you know!) I just can't seem to get my energy going!
Maybe we'll all start feeling better soon!
God bless,
