Can I go back to sleep?

I always considered myself both a morning and a night person... you know - the kind of person who functions fairly well either time of the day (now afternoons are another story ;-). Well, ever since entering the motherhood-constant-state-of-sleep-deprivation phase, it seems that i'm in a fog for the first part of my morning. Take just now for example - it's my turn to post the daily digest layout of the day/questions of the day at CMK, and I just posted layout of the day with a date of 3/16/09 (which I can't find a way to edit - argh!). Hey, at least I got the day and year right...

This month's prompt is up at the Forward Progress blog. I made a layout with 10 goals for the next year. Since I haven't completed any of the 5 goals in 5 months I made last month, I included those in.

That flower was cut from a Vera Bradley box I had saved... love the colors on it!

Journaling:My goals for the next year: By August 2009 - start a garden (started indoors 2/09, to be transferred outdoors when blossoming), lose 10 pounds (working on it), finish Twilight book series (on Book 3), continue to have lots of silly moments with my kids (on-going), do weekly menu planning (haven't started); By April 2010 - organize basement, sew a camera strap, purge magazines, file layouts in albums, blog at least 3x/week, go through old toys and sell what is no longer being used.

It's been a happy mail week for me - whoo! Got my Scrapbook Trends box the other day with some product and the April mag which is chock full of inspo, and yesterday I got my Fancy Pants box! The excitement of getting a box of favorite scrap product never gets old - I seriously just want to roll around in it, lol.

I'm off to go start my day with the little ones. Hope you all have a wonderful day! I think it *might* actually be spring-like weather here today (i'm really hoping I didn't just jinx myself!)!!

Staci, it could be worse. I am past the motherhood-constant-state-of-sleep-deprivation phase. I am now in the I'm-too-old-to-be-awake-more-than-8-hours phase. And of those 8 hours, I can only promise to have a semi-functioning brain for 3 of them. I spend the first two hours gently waking up. One more hour engaging my brain. Three hours to complete any task that requires cognitive thinking. One hour to complain about how exhausting those 3 hours were. And the final 2 hours are spent preparing for another good night's sleep. See what you've got to look forward to...lol!

On a serious note, I have to say this layout is AMAZING! I have looked at it over and over, each time seeing something else that blows me away. Great work, girlie!

Have fun with your babes. Hope you have fantastic weather this weekend! XO

I LOVE this layout, Staci!!! Fabulous details and what a great flower!! I need to look on my tags and boxes more often. Beautiful pics of you, too btw!

Sleep? What is that? No, seriously I have been pretty lucky as far as Em sleeping - my problem is I like to stay up late creating and then drag the next morning. ;)

What a wonderful LO! The whole feel of the LO is fantastic: fun and dreamy/romantic at the same time! I absolutely love that circle, the tomorrow-later-never ... made me laugh, I can relate!
