Poo

Not just oh poo! But really, OH POO!!!!

Little Hauss made the trip to ATL with Gigi yesterday leaving hubby and I kid free again! We don't even have time to get excited about any quality time because I'm working like a mad woman to fit in my hours so I can have tomororw thru Monday off! I feel like the sacrifice is well worth it.

Well, that's how I felt about it on the first day! Getting to work at 5:45 am isn't fun, but when you look at the big picture - 5 whole days off - it starts making sense! Yesterday, I was sluggish! On top of my body thinking that staying up until 11:30 the night before waking up at 5 is ok, I have gone without make-up most of the summer! Even mascara! I know, it's crazy! I used to never leave the house without mascara! I've worn it a handful of times this summer and pretty much everytime, I've cried, so I thought it best to go without! Well, I guess I not only felt sluggish, I looked it - the whole shabang....puffy eyes, slouching posture, and just plain worn out! After all that, I didn't even get home until close to 9!

Today I felt more refreshed. I made myself go to bed at 9:30, which means about 10ishafter I laid there long enough to make myself drift off to sleep. It also means that I have done NOTHING at the house. It needs a good bitch slapping, but I just haven't had the energy or time to put into it. I KNOW that we are supposed to leave in the morning and I know that means laundry has to be done (ok, so hubby does this and it has zilch to do with me, but still), bags have to be packed, car needs to be cleaned out and gassed up, packed and stocked with snacks, pillows, books, and tunes!

Now, I can add cleaning carpets in the basement to my ever so growing list of things to get done!!! I totally flaked and forgot that hubby had a meeting this am at work, which meant he wouldn't be home at his usual 6:45am! Me, in my infiinite wisdom, left the dogs inside because I overslept thinking that it wouldn't be long until he was home and he could let them out! WRONG!!! His meeting wasn't even that long and he was home by 8:30! Enough time for "my" dog to poo all over the carpet leaving a mess for him to clean up! Great! He did the best he could with the handheld cleaner, but now I need to use the mackdaddy carpet shampooer to really get it out!

Needless to say hubby was NOT happy and now I've decided to leave work an hour early to try to accomplish at least the carpets before I'm supposed to be at dinner! I will get it done! I might be up all night getting the rest of it done, but knowing that I have a good 2 hours of uninterrupted time to accomplish some stuff, I am feeling much better about the ending of this day than I did about the beginning of it!

***Update on Poo Carpets***

They are cleaned and I managed to empty the dishwasher, do 2 loads of laundry, clean 2 bathrooms and declutter the kitchen (simply means I just moved it to the spare room!!!).

Now, off to pizza with the girls!

Laaasss have mercy! I'd just take a cut in the hours for one week rather than come in this place at 0545....I can go without SOMETHING to make up for it. Gots to have my beauty sleep, ya know??
