I really don't have any idea where this week went.

I have spent most of it exhausted due to our little guy not sleeping well.  It is wreaking havoc on Mr. Finn and me.  I didn't drag myself out of bed until 10 a.m.  Not that I was asleep until 10, but I was too tired.  The screams of children made it a necessity to leave the comforts of my bed.  Mr. Finn did not have this luxury and drug himself to work in pursuit of the means to support our family.  

As I was sitting here in a stupor the Emergency Alarm started screaming and almost gave me a heart attack.  Apparently the Emergency Broadcast System is issuing its 258th Tornado Warning of the season.  Yeah!  I couldn't be more excited.  Can you tell?

It is a beautiful place to live but I really dislike tornado season.  You never really know when to be scared or just be on the watch.

Now I just have to get the kids to bed.  Hard to believe it took me all day to do this post and it is now 7:30 p.m.  I still have to get them fed so they will stay asleep all night.

Here's to dreaming....all night long.

Cheers to that! Somedays I think I should just stay awake all night, I'd feel about the same anyway!!! :) As for tornados! I miss them SO bad! I think it might be different now that I have children but as a kid growing up they were the coolest things EVER!!! You should record one of the storms and post it! I'm craving Missouri SO bad! :)

I hope the sleep cycle is balancing out! I am sure that I suffered permanent brain damage from those sleep-deprived years. It's either that, or early onset dementia...

Oh, Robin, I'm sorry. There's not much that's worse in my book than extreme sleep deprivation.

I got your package. Sorry I wasn't here when you came by. I'm saving it to open on Sunday since it's my birthday that day. I can't wait to see what's inside. :)
