A little Lil Rambler love and some extra crap.


The only thing I gave her was my curly hair and sassy attitude! Other than that, she's all Mr. Rambler.

Mr. Rambler's off on another work thing. Whatever.

Me, Woof Woof and Lil Rambler are holding down the fort. (eek, English professionals, I know, it should be Woof Woof, Lil Rambler and I....give this mama a break)

Mama is still working full time, shuttling back and forth between day care, worrying the dog will pee all over something new he hasn't if I don't get home, wondering if some home cleaning fairy will appear while I sleep and help me straighten the mess that is my home and concerned if she hears mama a zillion more times in a minutes worth of time span her brain might implode.

I turned into a zombie today. I downed a tall Espresso Truffle from Starbucks, a cup of work coffee, 2 Pepsi's and finally a Monster Energy drink to try to pep my step up.

Nothing worked!

Not even a pinkie toe's worth.

I fell asleep for a couple minutes on the work toilet.

There I said it. That's how tired I was/am still.

Thankfully, I left early. The shell of my body picked up the kid, drove home, spoke with a friend on how I have a new found respect for single parents. (SERIOUSLY, WOW) made play date/doggy date/lunch date with friend. Must remember, do NOT forget. You are tired. Someone remind me...Wait she reads me, so she'll remind me. Right Krissy?!? :)

And why do I find myself here blogging instead of sleeping?

I am asking myself the same question.

What a good description.
You took me there.
It was awful.
And now I need a nap.

Cammie said...

man she is SO darn CUTE!!!! So I am not the only one with a dog who likes to pee in the house? awesome

Saskia said...

I feel the same today... so knackered it's untrue (and I have also "rested my eyes" while in the work toilet too!!)

Lil Rambler is absolutely adorable! I love those photos.

Thanks for the recommendation... I'll look into it :)

You are a hoot! I will forever picture you, not as the Rambler, but as the woman sleeping on the toilet at work.

Get some sleep woman :)

Now you've had two reminders...

Annie said...

gosh she is CUTE.....
Get some rest you poor thing!!

Shorty said...

Such cute pictures of such a beautiful little girl! love them!

I hope you get some rest, my dear. And be careful driving. That's where I always nod off when I'm in zombie mode. Yes, beware of Shorty in Texas during rush hour periods...

Hang in there with the work thing. Feel free to vent anytime...you know me, I've got ammo, too, so we can just vent together and feel tons better!

Wishing you all the best, my Hawaiian BBFF!

OliveStreetStudio said...

Your daughter is absolutely adorable!! Sometimes I'm in the car and wonder HOW I got home bc my brain is shut off- it's like the car is on auto-pilot bc I'm so tired. scary! :-0

Aunt of 14 said...

Look at those baby blues! They are SO ADORABLE!

Stereos and Souffles said...

Cute picks! Now get some sleep :-)

K said...

I'm not sure how families with two full time working parents do it, let alone single parents. Much respect.

Hope you had a good sleep.

Orr's said...

I think you have the blog addict like most of us do. Welcome to the club, and the sleep on the toilet thing makes up some of the best naps I've ever had.

Lynnette Labelle said...

Girl, get some sleep! we'll be here when you wake up!!

Melissa said...

She is adorable! I agree. I have no idea how single parents can do it! It's amazing! Now, get some sleep!

Michelle said...

Ohhh that's hard to be a single mom. I had a hard day and it had nothing to do with being an only parent, so I'm not sure how I'd do it. Buuuuut it's 8pm and I'm tempted to go to bed now ;)

Fiauna said...

Little Rambler is seriously gorgeous. I'm sorry you are so tired. But, you fell asleep on the toilette?? At work???

Tooj said...

I have found myself going to the bathroom at work before just to sit and close my eyes. It helps.

Aubrey said...

Zzzzzzzzzz.

Brittany said...

Such a sweet, little face! Those eyes would get my heart every time! :)

K said...

Hi again.

The new pic is the kid. (You're the only one to notice the new picture so far.) It's about a year old now, but that photo has always cracked me up. Have a great Tuesday.

Jodi said...

Oh, she is SO cute! I'm sorry about the work week widow! Very hard! I did laugh at your day and caffeine intake though!

jineen said...

love the pics, get some rest! trust me, you aren't any good if you don't sleep. i have been awake for over 36 hours minus a one hour nap and i am moving slowly....

antibloggedy said...

Helloooo Niecy Pooooooo! give your mama some rest!!!!!!

Dear Rambler.....
Go to Moms and take a nap.

Mammatalk said...

You nap on the can, too?

Becky said...

Wow, and I thought I was tired?! Your little girl is very cute!

Controlling My Chaos said...

Wow, I can relate to falling asleep on the work toilet. When I was pregnant with my first, I would go into the handicap stall, lay my arm on the helper bar, then lay my head on my arm and take a power nap. It was the best.

Debbie said...

That sassy attitude will take her places!
