T is for Tired

Where's that white flag?
Sweet Lincoln's mullet, I am tired.
Mrs. Shife left yesterday to go to a continuing ed conference and I am all alone.
Things were going pretty well until bedtime.
Kyle and Hayden decided they wanted to sleep in my bed and that was an adventure.
I felt like I was fighting Mike Tyson with all the body blows and head shots I got during the evening.
Oh, and Ms. Frizzle was in the bed also.
And she's a blanket hog.

She lays on top of them and then spreads herself out like she's in the final round of Twister.
Unless you keep your Craftsman 2-1/2 ton floor jack under the nightstand in the bedroom, you aren't getting the blankets back.
But there was a light at the end of the tunnel.
I took the afternoon off today so I thought I could probably squeeze in a nap before the kids get home from school.
Then I forgot that we were watching Nash, the almost 1-year-old golden doodle, today.
You remember Nash, right?
The last time we watched him we had an awkward moment with Kyle dry-humping pillows.
Feel free to read all about it right here.
I'm not going anywhere.
And you're back.
I tried napping but Frizzle and Nash are about as subtle as a fart in a crowded elevator.
They have been going at it the minute Nash walked through the door and it doesn't like it's going to end anytime soon.

It's like they know I want to take a nap and once I start to doze off then it's ... 
Knock down something.
Lick private parts.
Hear Mr. Shife use new and exciting cuss words.
Repeat until evening.
Happy Friday, everybody.

I will persevere. I will keep moving forward. I will be the stream.


  1. Hope you get a nap in soon! Abby and Tar can barely
    share our king sized bed - forget us... ;-)

  2. That is funny! It's amazing how much more work there is when one person is gone. And that's why we only board one dog at a time, the older and lazier the better :)

  3. That pig gif is seriously cracking me up!!

    As far as I'm concerned, having a nap interrupted is a special kind of hell. Good luck with the rest of the time you're on duty alone!

  4. I bet you loved it all, really! I know I shouldn't laugh but it's the way you tell 'em. I could picture it all, having once owned very active labradors.

  5. Farting in an elevator is never a good idea. I hope you get a good nights sleep soon.

  6. Holy Cow! You've a lot on your plate!

  7. I understand. I completely understand. Thanks again for the kind words on my site. This isn't a a great time for me, but your words are a great help. Two things. I'll be sending you a friend request on Facebook, so look for that. The other? I just bought tickets this week to take Colin to his first Peacemakers show next month. I'm sure you could hear him scream 'Yes!' from here.
