defination: to put in a state of extreme physical or nervous fatigue.

I have been using that word a lot lately. I am not really sure where I picked it up from, but it seems like such a perfect word for how I feel sometimes.

Travis works pretty much all day every day...he usually doesn't get home until late in the evening on weekday nights so once the weekend rolls around I am more than ready for a break from the kiddos (no offence to them of course) and I am more than ready to spend some time with my sweetie.

On Saturday we had worked on a few things around the house and decided that we needed to go to Home Depot (I swear I go there every other day now!). It really was a one man (or woman) job, but we decided to go together. I know I didn't want to stay home by myself with the little ones, and I am pretty sure Travis didn't either.

To make a long and boring story short, Audrey was constantly whining the whole time, and Phoenix was crying full blast in the car for a solid 20-25 minutes. No amount of loud music can drown it out. (He no longer takes naps in the car) It is moments like those, especially at the end of a long week when I just want to relax, that I feel frazzled.

I saw on Jon & Kate Plus 8 (may it rest in peace) that Jon and Kate would wear ear plugs for road trips. Inspired. Maybe I will join a gym to...
