I brought my laptop to Kentucky, because John's dad informed us that he had wireless internet. But there was some confusion, and I was unable to get on the internet. Since I still wanted to document the trip, I decided to type entries into Word to post later. Enjoy...
Mama is losing her mind. I somehow forgot that other people's lives do not revolve around nap schedules. Other people have sheer curtains on their windows, letting in tons of light during nap time. Other people have nice furniture, which babies love to ruin. Other people do not get up at 6 am everyday. We are here, but things are not good. My kids won't nap. AT ALL. I am not sleeping well - the bed is too soft, the pillows are too fluffy, and my room is too warm. My head is pounding. My kids are screaming. Our nine day adventure may have just turned into a 4 days romp. Mama is losing her mind.
Christmas was CRAZY. My kids got so many gifts that I am not sure where we are going to put them when we get home. Actually, I am not sure how we are going to get them all into our van. My mother went OVERBOARD. She spent so much money on gifts, that I felt bad for not buying her more. Actually everyone bought the kids too many gifts. I'll have to take a picture of all the loot.
Things are much better in the napping department. The kids have settled into a more predictable schedule. But regardless, I am ready to go home. I am tired Internet. VERY TIRED. I am not sleeping well, we are on the go all day, and I am sick of being around my relatives CONSTANTLY. I long for peace and quiet. I long for pointless trips to Target. I long for my comfy couch. I long for our playroom. I long for home.
I think my MIL is getting sick of us. Today she commented that they "needed a break from the kids." I understand this need, but I thought that it was rude to actually say it. So now I am feeling the need to leave the house even more. Ugh. My kids are being run ragged.
Today is the anniversary of when John and I started dating. We have been together for 11 years! Tonight we are going to go eat at the restaurant where we first met. So romantic!
John is spending the day with some friends, so I am spending it with family. At first I was pissed that John wanted to hang out with his friends, while I NEVER get a moment's peace, but now I am kind of glad. I can go spend the entire day with my family, without hearing him bitch and moan.
Update: John's plans with his friend fell through, so he ended up spending the day with my family. It was actually a blessing, because Porgie has caught a stomach flu. Over the course of the day, she vomited 3 times. Her fever is really high, so I think we might pack up and leave tomorrow.
