Over-time and over-extended

I worked the Midnight shift last night, well technically this morning. I am still here until 4pm. I feel like I have Cheech and Chong eyes. I have consumed enough coffee and Click to burn a decent sized hole in my stomach. Enough bitching, bitch.
The point of my post you ask:
What is it about over extending myself with a double shift that leads me to want to do shit? Like I want to climb a mountain, ride my bike and rearrange my whole house. Is it because after 24 hours of being awake I am running on caffeine and dreams? I don't know. What I do know is I am about ready to make some changes again.
I think it is like when a kid goes through a growth spurt. First they get a little lazy and round and then all of a sudden they sprout up and thin out. I feel like I have been just going through the motions. I do not have a lot of time for anything I want to do Monday through Friday. The home/kid schedule keeps me busy from the minute I get home until their bedtime. Once 8:30 comes do I really want to tackle any projects? Lately not so much. This leads to me having a ton of ideas for the weekend but also the need to go out and stretch my legs. How do people do this?
I have not been doing my typical lists and lists of things I need to do because it just leads to feeling pressure when I don't get those things done. I also tend to book more things that my calender can hold. Who pays? The girls. Mom is tired, cranky and miserable which leads to kids who are bitchy, crying and yelling.
My goal for now is Christmas. Getting the tree and more importantly where the heck to put it. Getting the presents wrapped and if I am lucky some time to weed out some of the old toys.
So I guess my list says:
Now if I can only last until 4pm.
