Fragmented Fridays

I am taking the day off because I’m tired. The other day I came home from work and put Luna Pie (my 1-year-old) and myself to bed at 7:00 pm and you know what? It rocked! I woke up the next morning at 5am because I’d already been in bed for 10 hours. I need to let myself rest more instead of always trying to get something done.

So I’m gonna rest. I’ll catch up with you later.

But I want to let you know that something pretty exciting will be happening here next week. Something that might perhaps involve a certain paper bag that I have been dutifully wearing for 3 years. I’m just saying you might wanna keep a look-out ’cause you never know what you might see.


And now your Friday Fortune Cookie
(don’t forget to add “in bed” at the end, if you are so inclined):

People who say, “I’ll rest when I’m dead” don’t know what they are talking about.

    Taking any chance you have to rest when you are the mother of little ones is always a good choice.

    wow you are going to turn the paper bag inside out?  I think you should make paper airplanes out of it.

    I would have browsed over here earlier but I didn’t see your link at Mrs. 4444’s blog.  I still don’t but I was looking in my feed.  I don’t know really why I mention that but I did want to tell you I mentioned your old comment meme in my FF post today.

    7 am bedtime sounds wonderful.  Get your rest – you deserve it.  Maybe I’ll take suit…next week.  

  • viridian61

    I went to bed early last night but couldn’t fall asleep!  I hope that isn’t true for you – that you get some good shut eye.

  • Ann in the UP

    Good for you, getting some rest.  Try to do it more often.  I hope you aren’t just teasing about the paper bag—-but you’re awfully cute even with the bag.

  • Profwaynewsmith

    Sleep is a nice commodity.

  • Tami Miller

    A mom must always make time for herself.  It makes her a better mom and makes the kids much happier.  
    So are you going green with your bag?

    • unknownmami

      Not green…but something to do with the bag.

  • Mrs4444

    I’m happy for you! Ten hours of sleep is an event worth celebrating!! I look forward to seeing what you have planned. A cloth bag, perhaps?haha

    Have a restful weekend. Thanks for linking up.

  • StarTraci

    I will be breathing in and out of my own paper bag awaiting the news.


  • tracismixedbag

    Rest is so good. I think I don’t notice how good it is until I don’t have it.

    I can’t wait to see where your paper bag will show up.
