Sleep? What's That?

Getting to bed is hard to do,
Hard to do, to do, to do.
Getting to bed is hard to do,
To do, to do, to do.
(Sung in my most primary children like voice)

Ok, not kidding though, I've had a hard time making it to bed very early or rather at all.  I'm definitely not getting my "In Bed at 11pm" points for the "Great in Eight" challenge I'm doing. (more to come on that)  There is just so much to do and not nearly enough time to do it.  Granted I didn't feel well the past couple days so I didn't do much other than sleep during the day, but I need to be sleeping at night.
Like I said there's just too much to do. I'm not sure how to do it all.  
I have homework in pretty much every class.  Tons of it in my Stats, Movement Theory, and Foundations classes.  All of which I'm behind in.  Even more so now since I didn't make it to class the past 2 days.  I've been pretty much neglecting my housework and feels like I've been neglecting the kids as far as playtime goes.  "Sorry kiddos it's movies again today since Mommy doesn't feel good." :(
I'm so tired during the day and I know it's because I don't get to bed before midnight...Ever.  
(Note that I'm writing this at 2am)

Problem:  I do my housework and homework at night usually lasting until midnight, but by then I've caught my second wind and I can't go to sleep no matter how hard I try.  

Solutions:  None at the moment.  If you have any...PLEASE HELP!!

  1. Of course you know I'll comment on this. :) You are doing terrific considering all you have going on in life. Set the timer for housework and scramble to get the necessities done: dishes, enough laundry to keep you going, tidy up. (in fact, Mye is big enough to bribe - if she'll pick up the living room toys or whatever, she can have a ____ ) Put a movie on while you get part of your homework done in the afternoon - then whack away again at it in the evening. Chop it up in little sections if you have to.
    I love you! I'm proud of how hard you're working to get through school. It's not easy on you or the family but keeping a good attitude about it will make it fun to look back on. :) ((((HUGS))))
