Fiddle Faddle

My hormones have decided to make me INSANE.  Last month I had a very light period.  This month my period was horrible.  HORRIBLE.  It just went on forever, and I have been so flipping moody. I swear, my kids have never been so annoying. Needless to say, I haven't been feeling like myself lately.

My mother and grandmother were supposed to come to NJ at the end of the month.  Last Saturday my mom called to tell me to buy their tickets (my mother is afraid to make any online purchases).  It was the day before Porgie's birthday party, and I was distracted with house cleaning and party planning.  I completely forgot to buy the tickets.  When I finally remembered on Monday, the tickets had increased by about $100.  When I reported back to my mom, she told me that she didn't have enough money to buy the tickets.  Now everyone is mad at me (but they won't admit it).  I am debating just giving her the $100 so that they will still come to visit.

We are nearing the end of dance class and I cannot wait to be done!  We did a Saturday class this year and it was a total pain in the ass.  We always had all these fun weekend plans that were constantly being disrupted by stupid dance class. 

All of my neighbors are dieing.  In the past year, three people have died on our block.  It is depressing and sad.

My friend's son has lyme disease.  Isn't that crazy?  According to his doctor, ticks are really bad this year because of our incredibly warm winter.  Now I am terrified about going outside.  Seriously, I worry about ticks every damn time the kids go outside to play.

Last night, Guppy slept through the night for the very first time.  Usually, I put him to sleep in his room at the beginning of the night.  After his first waking, I bring him into bed with me.  I went to bed at 10pm last night, and he was still sleeping in his room.  I didn't wake up again until 5:40am.  And I woke up in a panic.  My hands were frantically searching the bed for him, and then I realized that he was still in his room.  Then I panicked all over again, because my baby NEVER sleeps that long, so something must be wrong.  I was sure he had died of SIDS or had been kidnapped, but he was merely sleeping peacefully!  He woke up at 6:30 and nursed like it was going out of style.  I feel so refreshed!  Sleeping is the best!

Yay for sleeping!

Ticks scare me too... our cats have them and dh refuses to treat them (the collar didn't work, but we have the shampoo). I tried a few weeks ago and one of them shook the shampoo in my face/eye. I'm still pissed about the whole thing. I've had two friends have issues with Lyme disease though... one was pg at the time and it was a huge worry of theres so that keeps going through my mind. Thankfully none have gotten us :-(

Sorry about the rest!

I still vividly remember the morning over five years ago when my kid first slept through the night (twelve hours) without awakening for a feeding. I was so confused and alarmed! Hope you get used to the feeling.
