So Emme was a great sleeper about 2 months ago. She was waking up once a night and drifting right back into dreamland once she was feed! Ahhhh those were the days! Now she is nearly 6 months old and wakes up at least 3 times a night. Her last wake up is a 5am, yes 5am and she doesn't want to go back to sleep! I am a walking zombie to say the least and lets just say it is catching up with me. So last week I went to Target and if you aren't familiar with the Aspen area, Target is 1 hour away (so is Walmart and anywhere else to buy household supplies in family size quantities). So I had just been to Target 2 weeks prior (I try to only go once every couple of months) and even though it wasn't on my list (which I try to stick to my list as much as possible) I bought an enormous thing of toilet paper. Although I forgot about 3 things that were actually on the list. What do I make a list again? Of course once I got home I realized I already had an enormous thing of TP, so I now have TP EVRYWHERE. Seriously, our house is small and I have TP in both mine and Tigey's closets, under the sink, in the laundry room, EVERYWHERE. Whatever small mistake and it will get used eventually.
Saturday rolls around and we have a birthday party at 10am, the party is a half hour away. I am rushing around getting everyone ready, getting the presents together (it was a double bday party). Tigey and I are bickering, Alea is not behaving. Finally we get in the car at 10:00 on the dot. Drive to where I think the park is but can't find it, drive around some more and then decide to stop and ask someone, all the while Alea is freaking out because she is so excited. We finally find the park only to discover there is a soccer game and no party! WTH? I will just check my email on my phone, Nope forgot the phone at home. GRRR So we go to a friends house 10 minutes away and I use her computer. THE PARTY IS ON SUNDAY NOT SATURDAY! Really??? If you know me you know I typically never do things like this. I am organized and under controlled 99% of the time....
Sunday morning rolls around and luckily we are prepared for the party right? I am in desperate need of coffee and go to make my usual 2 mugs. I sit on the couch and anxiously wait to here to coffee pot cut off. I get up and walk in to the kitchen only to discover coffee EVERYWHERE and I mean EVERYWHERE. I put enough coffee and water for 2 giant mugs but only put one mug under the pot! Lovely....
Sunday afternoon I have a friends baby shower and completely forgot. The shower started at 6pm and at 8pm I finally realized once I saw her gift sitting on the table... Sorry Lori!
Monday morning comes and after I get out of the shower, I am trying to brush my hair and wondering why my hair is not soft and smooth....I forgot to condition!
I could go on and on. I just keep my fingers crossed that my sleep-deprived mistakes stay minor and that my head stays on.
Anyway, I am happy to report that Emme only woke up twice last night! Things are looking up!
