sleep deprived

(This picture has nothing to do with this post. I just don't like to have too many picture-less entries)

3 nights ago, I barely fell asleep around midnight. This was not due to a lack of trying. Just couldn't get comfortable. Ben nudged me at 6:30 (this is when I go get the kids up) and he said I just snored on. I woke up at 7 and was shocked at "how long I had slept in". It put me behind for the rest of the day. *Sigh*

2 nights ago, I spent from 12-2 throwing up. I am still not sure why. I felt completely fine afterwards. However sleeping from 2-6:30 is not a lot of sleep. I was GRUMPY. Harmony decided to make her own lunch, and I got upset because I felt like she wasn't grateful for the lunch I made her. Hello? A little tired are we?

Yesterday, I was sooo tired. There was nothing I could do about it. I just slept walked my way through the day. Seriously. Finally by 1:30 I put Ivan in front of his V-Smile. I went and laid on my bed and slept until after 3!! I only woke up when the kids got home from school. But I was still tired. I just kind of laid around all day. Dropped the boys off with Ben, and let him know to pick up McD's for dinner on the way home. I am awful I know!!

While they were gone, Harmony and Ivan and I, all ate dinner (also McD's) and than laid on my bed and watched a movie. After watching Finding Nemo a million times, Harmony put in a "girl movie". So we watched Polly World. The boys came home and had dinner and baths (did I mention I still hadn't gotten out of bed?) Then I sent all the kids off to bed. Ivan and I watched Veggie Tales( uhm I was just trying to get sleep) when Ben came home. He sent Ivan to bed. After Bones, I rolled over and fell asleep. I slept until 6:30 this morning.

Because of the whole "lying around all day and not doing anything" I am a little behind today. But my friend just called and I am not babysitting today. Wahoo, no babysitting and no scouts. I feel free, light and most importantly AWAKE. Time to get my house back in order.

Like I said, there really isn't much going on that is blog worthy. Just in case you didn't believe me!

That post made me sleepy just reading it! Maybe you are anemic and low on iron and need a good steak to perk you up! I hope you feel more like yourself soon!

I know sometimes you don't want to blog because you don't have a picture to go with it-I do the same so I am glad you blogged anyways.Next time could you take a picture at 2 am when you are puking or when you are laying around on the couch (haha). Some days you just can't get over the sleep deprivation-especially when you are pregnant. I have even had to bump some iron into my daily diet and still haven't felt the effects yet. come 1pm I feel like I cant lift my eyelids.GET SOME SLEEP (more that is)

I am glad that you finally took a day to recover. It is so hard being busy and pregnant on top of it. With this last pregnancy I would have random nights that I would throw up. nothing seemed wrong. It wasn't even like real morning sickness. It was mostly annoying. Hopefully this is a fluke thinkg.
