Yeah, I know it's the long weekend, but I'm flipping tired. This quiet long weekend we were supposed to have has turned into 3 days of having people over. I am fundamentally antisocial. The kind of person who could literally live in a cave for a year and be perfectly happy as long as I have food.

This whole "entertaining" thing is tiring. Plus I talked to a lot of people on the phone today. Talking with multiple people + entertaining = exhausting.

I think I'm ready to go back to work.

Cleaning the house this morning, tonight, tomorrow morning, tomorrow night, Monday morning playdate means sterilization of toys so Julia toys don't infect others with Julia cooties, cleaning up after that, hosting Labor Day dinner with my mom, cleaning up after that.

Too much cleaning for one weekend. Why isn't having piles of laundry and dirty dishes around yourself socially acceptable? Because it is real life, or at least my life.

$16.40 for lunch out today. No coupons - aw shucks.

I really do like seeing people. Don't get me wrong. I think what kinda sucks is that long weekends are usually a napping treat. Today I didn't get a nap, tomorrow I won't get a nap. The only chance for a nap will be on Monday after the playdate and before my mom comes over. I'm really looking forward to that window of time. However, it may be just so that I won't be able to fit it in depending on the state of the house, my mind, etc.

I want a nap during the day!!!!

there is a song on the Dog Train album called I need a nap. Or maybe it's The Nap Song. Can't remember. Weird Al & Kate Winslet singing. It's great!

I hear you loud and clear!! Being sociable totally exhausts me. I am WAY more sociable online than I am in real life.... Too bad we don't live closer. We could be antisocial together ;0)

Karin, you should sing it to Colin and maybe he'll take the hint, and that means you can get an extra nap in!

LA, I'd love to be antisocial with you.
