join the league of tired supergirls

The other day I was perusing the different thoughts and brilliance
of you all on the world wide web who have commented here at tired supergirl.
You all are very creative and smart and probably look a whole lot better
in a superhero costume made from spandex than I would ever hope to.
Not that I ever hope to wear a superhero costume made from spandex.
I really love fabric that breathes and wearing a spandex body suit would make me want to sing the chorus to that Jordin Sparks/Chris Brown song "No Air".
Tell me how I'm supposed to breathe with no air
Can't live, can't breathe with no air

Unfortunately, it is extremely difficult to find a super hero unitard in 100% cotton.
But I digress.
If you are a tired supergirl (or tired superguy),
(love Jesus, love life, love people, encounter problems on occasion that
require a roundhouse kick while quoting scripture and could use a good
week's worth of sleep at any given moment)
and you would like to identify yourself as such,
send me a link to your blog - either leave it here in the comments
or shoot me an email. (
I'll be setting up a links page here in the next few days.
(I say the next few days because in my vast knowledge of technology,
it may take me a few days to figure out how to lay it all out or
bribe my husband to set it up for me.)
I would love to link to your blog, to your world, to your thoughts and insights
because those of us who need Jesus and love chocolate really should stick together.
Even if we don't wear spandex.

I would love to be a part of the Tired Supergirl club! If being a girl and being tired are 2 of the 3 requirements - I'm a shu-in!

Can you be a Tired Supergirl if your next birthday represents the half century mark? 'Cause I'm definitely tired :-)
August 15th we leave for Argentina. Yeah, almost fifty, trying to learn a new language. And some say God doesn't have a sense of humor!
I was already a southern girl, now I'm just headin' a little farther south. And you can find me at:

Holly said...

I too enjoy reading your blog! I got linked to you through my cousin's Jessi and Bets!

I can be found at

I'm so glad to NOT have to wear spandex - of course if there was less chocolate eating that might not be such a big deal!

Bets said...

I have actually worn a superhero costume.... can't say that it was attractive, but my nephew did enjoy the effort for his birthday! Really, the knee high boots and red tights are rather empowering....hehehe. I even have pictures!

KO said...

Hey guess what! I've got a blog...

Kara said...

Hey - I just gave one of your famous books away on my blog today (the pre-order anyway).


I didn't even get a featured author comment on my blog either. Sigh.

What's this world coming to?


Kelly @ Love Well said...

Tired? Check.
Problems that require roundhouse kick? Check.
Girl? Check.

Think you're super? Check.

(Was that one of the questions?)

Back in college (when I was a size 2 or something crazy like that) I had a black cat-suit leotard that I wore for me dance classes... I am sure it is still around here somewhere, but I am also sure it would only fit around my ankles now :)
I am not sure I qualify as super, but I am definitely a tired girl!
Well, I am off to find some chocolate, come find me at:

Lindsey said...

So I'm definitely tired and I think that qualifies me to be a tired supergirl!

I love to read your blog. Your posts are funny, real, and always clever. I always enjoy my visits here!

Paula said...

Maybe if you wore some spandex Scott would be eager to help you with the website.

Lets do coffee soon.

Julie said...

I check your blog faithfully everyday waiting for a new post. Your blog is one of my favorites and I am so excited about your upcoming book. I'm great friends with Kara (me-moddy). I think I qualify for the League of Tired Supergirls with 2 boys only 16 months apart. Did I mention the oldest isn't even 3? Ahh! Crazy life. You can read about it at

Dear Sue,
Sign me up! I am all about Jesus and chocolate and no-spandex.

Also, if you discover a way to get a week's worth of sleep, please advise.

Your friend and fellow TSG,

Jessi said...

I know my sis already checked in here, but I totally wanted to 'out' her on the spandex thing and let you know she actually has a picture of herself in said spandex as part of today's post on her might wanna check it out...


Lindsey said...
