Thursday Thirteen #34: Randomness

Thirteen Things out of my groggy ramblings:

1. One night of less than 6 hours of sleep makes functioning hard.

2. Two nights of less than 6 hours of sleep makes functioning exceedingly difficult.

3. School starts in 5 days.

4. My oldest will be getting ON the bus at 6:00 am.

5. Whoever determined that all of the schools would have their various Open Houses and Orientations during the same week did not have children going to 3 different schools.

6. A combination of no sleep and LOTS of coffee means I CAN function, but I have the jitters.

7. Realizing that Football Tryouts lasted all week really screwed with my schedule.

8. Thank goodness for school activity buses!

9. And friends willing to pick up children when you can't get there in time!

10. Having children who can cook is a HUGE help!

11. It is starting to feel like it *might* be getting close to fall.

12. I have wierd dreams when I haven't had enough sleep.

13. I wish I had more time for blog hopping...I'm missing all of my favorite reads!

Egads on #4! If I had to convince ANY of our kiddollos to try and "be ready" before 6am, it would be a nightmare of biblical proportions! My thoughts and prayers are with you... and get some sleep! :)

I hear you with barely functioning with little sleep. I only have 2 so I don;t know how you do it with 6. My mom had 6 and I remember never being on time EXCEPT to church and school.

Good luck and i hope you have a great weekend.

Hopefully, once school gets started, you can get back to some sort of routine! In the mean time, have some coffee (forget the jitters)!
