Feeling Saucy

In the past two weeks, my baby girl flew the coop and flocked off to Kindergarten, I went on an adventure to the Big Apple, and dipped one toe back into the teaching pool… All good things, but I’m left feeling a little worn out. And when I’m tired I do moronic things.  Much to the amusement and/or horror of those around me. Like making spaghetti sauce sandwiches for the kids. In a tired stupor last night, I mistook the spaghetti sauce jar for the jam jar. For some reason the kids weren’t overly enthused about cream cheese and spaghetti sauce sandwiches in their lunch boxes. They’re picky like that.  Ingrates. 😉

Loser

I talk incessantly about being tired, but I can’t help it. This girl child is killing me over here with her 2 AM-5 AM “Night-Owl parties.” At least being over-tired gives me an excuse for being such a giant loser.I’ve lost so many things in the past few weeks, I’m literally at a loss.

My god I’m a useless sack of skin when I’ve had no sleep. Honestly. My brain don’t work so good. If I were smart, which I’m not, I’d go to bed instead of writing this. The thing is, I’m on “full alert” right now. Avery had two small seizures on Saturday and since she has a cold and is feeling unwell, I’m afraid that a “big one” is brewing. So I watch, with toothpicks propping open my lids. Last night, after going to bed at a sensible 12 am (see, told you I was dumb) Avery woke up at 2:45 am. And not just roused, but was UP and ready to rock, going full tilt until nearly 5 am. Being woken from sleep and forced to stay awake when your body is begging for rest is nothing short of torture. So today was a hazy blur. I went through the motions and managed to run some errands, get groceries and make new recipe for dinner. All pretty impressive considering my eyes were shut the entire time. When DS asked what was for dessert, I responded “Listen. Give me a minute. I’m doing my best okay?” To which he replied honestly[…]
