There’s your lame joke for the morning 🙂 Since it won’t say by the date of this post, I am beginning writing this at 6:34am. And I don’t feel like death!
I fell asleep before midnight for the first time in a very long time. I don’t know how long, honestly. It was pretty close to midnight, but I never even got close to that ugly 2:00am I’ve seen sooo many times. However, I woke up when Brady woke up. 5:00-something. As in, I heard his alarm snooze a couple of times before I looked at the clock at 5:30am. I wake up to his alarm often enough but rarely say awake. However, I had to pee. Thanks for nothing, post-baby bladder. So I got up, peed, and went back to bed. I tried to fall back to sleep, but it wasn’t coming right away, and once I thought more about it, decided to just be up. You know those times when you wake up, fall back to sleep, and somehow those last couple of hours make you feel waaay worse than you felt when you originally woke up? That is really how I saw things going this morning, so I opted for wakeful time instead. I don’t hope to be awake this early regularly, but it’s along the lines of my current “wake up earlier” plan so I figure I’ll just roll with the punches and see what happens. At least its the weekend tomorrow.
We had a meeting of sorts scheduled at our house yesterday evening, so I cleaned up our massive amount of dishes in preparation for having someone more important over. Highlight of doing dishes? When I was standing at the sink and Dekker was playing with the magnets on the fridge. We were sort of doing our own things, content, I was probably humming or singing, just relaxed, when out of nowhere, Dekker pantsed me. I didn’t even notice that he had crawled over, but he certainly pulled up on me! I was completely surprised and turned around to look at him. He just stood there, looking up at me with his perfect, innocent Bambi eyes. Ya, I had a good laugh 🙂
Turns out the man we were meeting with got stranded out of town that day with car trouble, so we moved the date to next week. No big deal, I felt worse for him having to fix his car in a strange place. However, to be proactive, I made some cookie dough in the evening so I could make fresh cookies on the day he came over. I was hoping to make them yesterday but it was getting too close to his arrival time. But then he couldn’t come! So I guess it kind of worked out for the best.
I am decently proud of how yesterday went. I felt tired and accomplished at the end of the day, and fell asleep with no problems. I’m definitely wishing I could have slept longer this morning but hopefully everything will even out sooner than later and I’ll be able to run a normal routine like everyone else.
My plan for today is to go to the city with my mom and get a few things done. Groceries, Value Village, stuff like that. And then meeting the boys and picking out Christmas trees 🙂 It has become a nice tradition that we share with my parents every year, and I’ve been looking forward to it!
