One of THOSE Nights....

  • We went swimming yesterday at a resort with Ryan and Shannon and company.
  • I ate 4 slices of Papa Johns Pizza and a Dr. Pepper and a handful of peanut butter M&Ms.
  • Got home at 9 ish.
  • Tried on my new nursing g's. Too big. Annoyed about it.
  • Stayed up and read till 11 about Labor and Delivery. Not a good mind relaxer.
  • 11:13 headed to bed.
  • Checked the clock again at 11:53...still wide awake.
  • Finally drifted off after singing primary songs such as: I am a Child of God, I Like to Look for Rainbows, A Child's Prayer and I Love to See the Temple.
  • 2:27 woke up as if it were 10:00 in the morning but with real bad acid reflex (sp?). Thank you Papa. Better Ingredients. Better Pizza. My big toe.
  • Made chocolate milk.
  • Killed two freakin cock roaches. (didn't do the dishes before bed)
  • Peed
  • ATTEMPTED bed again. Laid and Laid and thought about everything in the world including labor, tearing, breast feeding, knowing when labor starts and all that. Dixie Chicks song, "I Can Love You Better" was stuck in my head.
  • Almost in la la land. I could feel that floating feeling when the kid woke up. He loves chocolate milk. He'll be disappointed when he drinks my milk I guess.
  • Tossed and Turned. Had to pee.
  • Back to bed. Got so comfy. Said yet another prayer to fall asleep. 4:07 dying of thirst. Got up for more water. Didn't even look for cock roaches this time.
  • Back to bed. It was happening. I was excited when I hear a loud, "BEEP! BEEP! BEEP! BEEP!" Thank you Cody's phone and friend for texting at 4:15. Very thoughtful. Kid is awake again and kicking me in the ribs now. Feels amazing.
  • I've given up on the idea of sleep and just decided to lay there till morning. Cody had a nightmare and flew out of bed which startled me of course. He wiped his sweaty brow on me. Gross.
  • 5:15 Cody's alarm goes off and he told me how tired he was. I barely had a decent response.
  • Got up with Cody and now blogging and watching the early show. Its 5:52 and I'm starving. I'm going to be pretty edgey today. Look out....consider that your warning.

It doesn't seem too bad once its written down but I know everyone has had a night like this. Aren't they the best? I would rather have to be staying up like this with a newborn...not JUST BECAUSE! $#%&*!#$%&*!&$*#!@#$*&%$@!!!!!!!!!
