I am spent. I have no energy to do anything constructive, or creative, and all I want to do in the world is fall into bed with my book. (It doesn't help that it's pitch dark outside either.)
(As I type "pitch dark" I wonder what the hell that actually means....I may have to look it up...)
There's a toddler who doesn't much like it when I try to pull this. That is, of course, unless I'm totally fine with trying to read said book while toddler jumps all around me on the bed, and
occasionally every 10 seconds throws a pillow on my head.
How do soccer mom's do it? As my child gets older, will I be expected to come home from work and drive my children to 4 different activities, all whilst stamping holiday cards next to me on the passenger seat, and baking 178 dozen cookies when I get home? (Please say no, please say no!)
Sorry for the ramble. As you can likely tell, I'm exhausted.
Pitch black (or pitch dark) is a derivative of "black as pitch." Pitch is a substance used for paving or caulking, that is actually the residue remaining after the distillation of coal tar or wood tar. It's very black, thus "pitch black."
There - you learned something new today!
