Mommy in a Coma, I know, I know, it's serious.


Seriously, I have been humming my version of this song ever since Christmas, because I cannot wake up from my holiday coma.

All I want to do is sleeeeeeeeeeeeeeep.  And then wake up and eat leftover Christmas cookies.  And then sleeeeeeeeeeep some more.

I think I've burned through all my mommy reserves.  I had a 4-day weekend and spent the entire time present shopping or wrapping presents or supervising the unwrapping of presents or present assembling or enforcing present sharing.  And don't get me started on the present playing.  I got home from work yesterday evening expecting to park myself on the couch and instead got sucked into an hour-long bout of Sorry!, the game of sweet revenge.  I was on Aidan and Owen's team.  I will spare you the play-by-play, but let 's just say that "sweet revenge" is a concept best not served to three year olds.

I would love to provide a recap of our Christmas celebration with pictures, but frankly, I don't think I took any.  Just imagine a weekend filled with a flurry of wrapping paper and you pretty much got it.

Anyways, I'm trying to hop back on my blogging saddle, which is difficult when you are still comatose.  But here I am, hopping away.  Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!  And thank you for all of the birthday wishes!

I'm feeling the Christmas Coma and I don't have any kids! :) I can't imagine how deep your coma runs.

Sounds like you had a busy, but fun Christmas!

I'm right there with you...I'm so tired and don't want to think about all the things I need to do now that Christmas is over. XOXO

That's what I want as well. To just sleep and sleep and sleep. But the people at my work have seriously frowned down on that.

Me too. I've been sleeping like crazy. I actually asked my ob/gyn whether I should consult with my psychiatrist, because I was afraid that it heralded a resurgence of depression, but she said it wasn't unusual for women to be totally pooped once the adrenalin of Christmas wears off and all the sleep deprivation of baking and midnight present-wrapping wears off.

Hooray for higher ed! I get this week off.

I hear you. I want to sleep.

And I didn't know it was your birthday, Happy Birthday. :)

Yea, you're back!!! As a 54 yr old mom, I remember the day my sis in law asked me when my kids slept through the night. My oldest was about 12 at the time. My answer "I don't know. There's always one or more of them still getting me up." So here's a hearty wish for lots of sleep. And if you can't. . . you can always blog :)

Hah! Feeling the same way over here - still recuperating from Christmas - and those two words shouldn't even be used in the same sentence.... Hope you recover from your coma soon and have a happy New Year!
