I am exhausted and really disappointed we didn’t make it to church this morning. There was no way I could have managed it though. I had every intention of going – I had the diaper bag packed, Bible by the door, everyone’s clothes laid out – everything ready last night. But after barely getting any sleep last night, I couldn’t.
My once-great little sleeper kept me up all night. I was in bed asleep by 11 pm (I would have been sooner, but I was waiting for Nate to call – I had barely talked to him all day.) And Joshua was up from pretty much midnight on. He wasn’t hungry. He was really restless. It’s the old “binky battle” again, where he wakes up, wants his pacifier, I give it to him, and then he loses it just as he’s drifting off to sleep again, causing him to wake up and get really angry and scream. Replay that about a hundred times in your head from midnight until 5 am and there was my sleepless night.
It’s noon (oh wow, just realized that – I need to get the kids lunch!) and I’m still not awake yet.
It’s been 95% humidity and 80 degrees the past couple days. I would take New Mexico’s 100 + degree dry heat any day over this. (I’ve lived in Texas for a summer, I know how it is.)
One week down. One to go.
I’m praying that’s all and Nate doesn’t have to stay away longer.
