Why Is It Thursday and Not Friday?

I am dreading getting up early tomorrow. I’m so exhausted! Not just exhausted because I haven’t had enough sleep in 22 weeks but also just worn out of mornings. Brooke and Payson have schools that start an hour apart so I get Brooke ready for school and whoever else is already up eats breakfast with her. Then we head out the door, gathering everyone up and getting them in the car and we drive down to her school and drop her off. Then we come home and I feed the rest of the family and then I get Payson ready and gather everyone up to head out the door a little less than an hour later to drop him off. It sucks.
Plus, I’m taking care of the kids alone 24/7 minus maybe two hours a week so it’s just very tiring. Everett has been crying a LOT during the night and I have no idea why. We’ve been sick since November and he still is sick with what looks like a new cold but why is he up crying all night? He asks to breastfeed and I only let him maybe once because it hurts.too.freaking.bad so maybe that’s why but honestly he’d been sleeping okay without breastfeeding for the last week so… maybe it is just him feeling sick. Whatever it is I’m so freaking exhausted!! I have nightmares about my marriage and divorce and when he wakes me up in the middle of the night I have severe anxiety attacks and despite being so tired I feel like I could actually die, I can’t fall back to sleep! He does that a good 5-10 times at night so… I’m getting such little sleep.

So yeah, I’m a zombie and I only took two pictures today. But I have a few photos from my point and shoot camera so I’ll just share them. I don’t usually share those but, for the sake of blogging something…

I made cookies for family home evening and Everett got into the bag. I saw him right before bed doing this:

I already blogged about my pregnancy checkup but here are the two point and shoot pictures we took that day.

During the ultrasound. Allan came, I figured he’d probably want to see his daughter so I texted him when it was and he came from work to see the ultrasound. And he took this picture. And then the ultrasound tech told him no photos allowed. That seems like a silly rule.

Sierra took a couple pictures when we went to Wendy’s for lunch.

And these were the only pictures I took today, while making lasagna. Everett loves to be at the counter “helping” during each meal prep.

  • You are doing an amazing job, you really are. I have no idea how you are managing, given all that you have going on and are going through. Even if you don't feel like it, you are an incredibly strong women. I hope each day gets a little bit better for you. Hang in there!

  • Ariana, Oh yucky! So sorry you are feeling so poorly. I had a thought, take it if you want. I use homeopathy for my family. Granted I am JUST a mom, nothing more, but I would be willing to send you a few remedies (free) to see if they might help you. Homeopathy is totally safe to take during pregnancy, the one safe thing you can take while pregnant. Anyways, you can email me if you would like to give it a try. Homeopathic remedies are pretty 'cheap' in general, but when cash is short, six bucks is not cheap, especially if you don't know if it will work or not. I have a home remedy kit (it has 50n different remedies in it) that I could put together a remedy for you to try. Just email me at: kerri and krew at gmail dot com. Just take out the spaces and use the 'at' and 'dot' signs as appropriate. Just one mom wanting to help another mom out! Hope you feel better soon!Blessings,Kerri
