Random Nothingness and Some More

So, I am still sick and while I am not totally miserable I am beyond tired. Exhausted in fact. Seriously if I could just sleep for a few hours I think it would do wonders. But my husband was out of town for the early part of this week again, which means virtually no rest for me. He returned home tonight.

Then my grandmother fell last week and broke vertebrae (spelling) in her back. So, I've been going over there to fill prescriptions for her and make her dinner. It's not that I mind, because I don't. I'm happy to do it, but when I am sick and all I want to do is sleep the simplest of things wear me out.

Much of this I bring on myself. Instead of taking it easy and resting when I could I plow ahead with my normal, oh, trying to stick to the artibrary "house purging" schedule I made last week. The good news is that despite taking Monday and Tuesday off because I just felt like absolute crap, I did manage to finish the rest of the upstairs today. Every single room and closet has been gutted, organized, cleaned, and put back neat and orderly. I can't even begin to tell you how good that feels. I just need to have the carpets upstairs cleaned now and one floor of the house will be complete.

The main floor is a different story. We still have our Christmas tree up, which I am sick of looking at. My husband's job this week is to get it out of here ASAP. My daughter went from wanting to keep it forever to deciding she didn't like it as much when all the needles fell off everytime she touched it.

Totally changing the father leaves for DC this weekend (He and my mom are moving there for the next four years at least) and he wanted us to set up webcam accounts so he can talk to the grandkids. So, I did so today and tested it on my brother who lives in Wisconsin and then set up an account for my mom as well. I realize I am probably behind in the times here, but can I tell you how awesome that is? I am going to have a lot of fun playing with it.

This could be why I am tired.....I could be (and really should be) in bed right now. Both kids have been asleep for over 2 hours now and here I am blogging and then looking around the living room and kitchen at all that I could be cleaning (and probably will end up cleaning before I even think of going to bed). So, I have nothing to complain about I guess.

What do you find yourself wasting time on? Or doing instead of sleeping?

I spend WAY too much time on the internet. Way too much. I hop on and off throughout the day and then after dinner I'm on it for say, 45 minutes-1hr and then I'm here right now in the morning. It's like I've got to get my fix. AOL, Google Reader, Facebook and my reality show website.

I have no time to waste at home (because I'm barely there). Sometimes, I think cleaning is a waste because it could be time spent with Bear, having fun.

Honestly, there's almost nothing I'd rather be doing more than sleeping right now. I hope you feel better soon!

Blogging takes a lot of time, and I also can do a lot of reading instead of sleeping. The right book will draw me in for hours.

Nancy, I hop on an off during the day when there is a lull when my son naps (if he naps) or I am making them lunch.
Robyn, I agree about the cleaning. I'm rather compulsive in that area drives me nuts when things are messy.
Joanne, I'm reading the new Wally Lamb book right now and have stayed up late too many nights reading "just one more chapter" that turns into another 10 chapters.
