One of those days...

My day started at around 1 a.m. or so this morning. Well, maybe I'm being a little dramatic, but that's when the baby woke up and I put her in my bed. She is getting a little head cold so she's congested and you know how a baby who sucks their fingers can be when their nose is stuffy.

So, she's trying to suck her thumb and breath at the same time. She tosses and turns. Kicks. Sits up. Whimpers. Crawls half way down the bed. All the while keeping me awake.

I re-position her, pat her, roll her over, wipe her nose, hold her leg so she won't crawl away if I doze off. I cover her, re-cover her, wipe her nose again. Get the aspirator thingy to get the snot out. Doesn't help... and the entire processes starts all over again.

I think I may have gotten one hour of straight sleep and a million small dozes in. So we're running late this morning. The baby screams while I get everyone ready. And I'm trying to figure out how to get everything done in anticipation of my trip to Miami on Friday.

My eyes are burning from lack of sleep. My stomach hurts and I have that sleepy laziness that takes over when it's cloudy and cold outside. But I also have a mound of laundry to put away. A form to fill out that needs to be turned in tomorrow. Clothes to pack (for me and the children). Errands to run and all the other daily things along with the getting-prepared-for-traveling things.

So, if you don't hear from me much today then you know what I'm doing. I'm either goofing off and trying to muster the energy to get everything done. Or I'm working my butt off to get everything done! LOL!

Happy hump day!
