Run, run, run

Sometimes I feel like all I do is run. And not run in the exercise sense, run in the busy-doing-stuff kind of way. And I'm just beat.
Yesterday was help at school, have playdate, watch a friends kid after school and go to the grocery store.
Today was scouting for food (cub scouts pick up donations for the local food bank) for both Chase & Tristan, then a scout meeting for Tristan, home to make a quick lunch and wrap a gift, then take Chase to a birthday party, home to make cake for my FIL, make dinner, entertain in-laws, rearrange Chase's ENTIRE room to make space for the air hockey table they bought for the kids, then grump at my kids until it's their bedtime because I'm so worn out.
Tomorrow I'm out of here by 9am to meet my mom at 10am then to Becky's house so I can FINALLY get some time to scrapbook. I haven't been able to scrap in over a week and I'm having withdrawals. It makes me grumpy when I don't scrap! LOL
The only blissful thing to look forward to is Monday. The boys will get on the bus in the morning and I have NOTHING on the calendar that day. No helping out at school, no sports or dance, no people over, no errands to run, nothing. Thank goodness!
I think what I really need is a "Me" day. I need to get out of the house, away from my everyday responsibilities and just relax. It will never happen, at least not in the near future. But one can dream.

I like the idea of a "me" day -- I think you should just make it happen!
