just another manic monday

I'm having a hard time believing today is Monday.

Not only did it feel like the weekend went by way too fast and there's no way it can be Monday already, but for some reason all day today totally felt like it should be a Thursday or a Friday to me. That's depressing, being that it really is only Monday. Ugh!

Of course, my confusion and disbelief probably stems from having already been up for 17 hours today. It is only 7pm. But yes, I've been up since approximately 2am. Courtesy of the SawMan himself. You see, he decided a good time to be awake, talking and playing in his crib was from about 2 to 4 this morning. And of course he's right on the other side of the wall from our heads. So I got to lay there and listen to his blabbing and whining and thumping for almost 2 whole hours. I got up with him once and Ryan got up with him once. But it wasn't that he was unhappy or wanting anything; he just WAS NOT GOING BACK TO SLEEP. I felt like ever.
And then of course when he finally went silent at 4am, I was still wide awake. I could not get to sleep. And then I was getting really hungry. I ended up getting up and decided to have a snack and get out of bed for awhile since I was getting nowhere just laying there stressing about not sleeping. But when I came back to bed 20 minutes later, I was still wide awake. I think I finally fell asleep by 6 o'clock. And of course Ryan's alarm goes off at 6:30. Followed shortly by the arousal of both kids. So basically I was awake for the day at 2. Not my favorite way to start the morning.

Hmmm.... seems like there was something else I was going to write about today. Can't think now.
Porter's birthday party was yesterday by the way. Very cool party; we all had lots of fun. Nicole of course did a great job coming up with the cutest theme and so many great ideas along with it. If you're interested you can check out all the details and the pics over here.

Allrighty then..
I'm off to watch a movie with Ryan (we'll see how long I last LOL!) before bed.

I can relate somewhat...I couldn't GET to sleep last night.I tried everything short of sleeping pils. The last time I remember looking at the clock it was 3:00. But I am able to stay in bed after your dad leaves. I could hardly open my eyes when he left.I'll keep Sawman and you in my prayers,that you'll get the much needed sleep. Everything is easier after a good nights rest. XOXO
