Not enough coffee in my world!

OK, today is going to be one of those days where I can't drink enough coffee. 

Where is this and how do I get one?

I have a lot of days like this. I have come to realize that I put up a front on here and make it look like I have everything together. I make these fun projects, play with the kids and the hubby. But lets face it, most days I just want to rip my hair out or crawl back into bed and sleep for four days but that's not possible. Even on my days off, the minions are up by 7, notice I said "by" seven. Meaning, they are usually awake well before that. The minions have NO concept of "weekends" or "Summer." 

This never happens!

Man, I remember sleeping late during the summer when I was growing up. I am glad they have energy to be active but once in a while I would like them to let me sleep till 9. What's worse is my husband is a salesman and works EVERY Saturday. So, not only do I not get to sleep in on my day off, I am the only one taking care of all four of them ALL Day and they are a hand full. Sorry, I think I need more coffee and possibly a happy pill. 

Maybe it's just because its summer. I work 40 hours a week, my husband works closer to 60. We feel really guilty about not being able to be at home with the kids right now so i think we are trying to make up for it by being really busy and "having fun" every minute we aren't working. Its exhausting and overwhelming. I like to think that maybe I need a vacation but then I would need a vacation after that vacation to recover from Fun with four kids for a week! This came to mind.

Maybe me and the hubby need a weekend away. I want to go to the beach, but I don't think the kids would ever forgive us for going without them. Whatever, this is my life. I am so Tired.
