Tuesday… I think

9 Dec 2003 In: Days Go By

Yeah, so I think it’s Tuesday…. lol, sometimes the days just run together.
This is going to be a boring week, I guess.

I am getting nervous about Christmas. I hate, first of all, that Christmas is so commercialized, but what are you gonna do?
I’m getting nervous because we are behind in our shopping, more so than usual at this time.
The only ones we have done are Sheila, Elizabeth, my Dad, Sarah, and Steve’s mom (if her thing ever comes in, it’s on backorder grrr). And I am still wanting to get Sheila another something else, to make up for the fact that she already knows what she’s getting, lol. As for everyone else, we have decided what to get C and J, but G, M, R, my mom, Grandpa & V., Grandma H., M2, and Steve’s dad are all mysteries. We know what we want to get Grandma F., but we can’t find it anywhere.
So obviously, I put a lot of thought into all of this. I guess that’s what counts.

So let’s see…..
Sunday I ended up staying home in the morning. Elijah kept waking up all night and finally around 3:30am when I couldn’t get him to sleep, I just left him. I was so tired that I was falling asleep standing next to his crib. I went upstairs and turned the baby monitor off, but I could still hear him screaming. I know that sounds horrible, but I didn’t know what else to do. I didn’t think I’d fall asleep. I’ve NEVER fallen asleep while he’s been awake before, let alone screaming or crying. But I did, and I guess he did too, because about 3 or 3.5 hours later I woke up to him starting to cry. And I thought, “how did the baby monitor get back on?” Apparently, Steve told me in the middle of the night to turn it on and I did – I totally don’t remember that. So then I got him and brought him upstairs with us and fed him and we fell asleep again. But not before I reset my alarm from 7:10 to 7:45. Cause if I got up at 7:45 it was still enough time to get ready for and go to Sunday School. The alarm never went off. And I don’t mean it went off and I hit sleep on it because later when I looked at it, it was still set, and I had been sleeping with my back to it, I awoke in the same position I fell asleep in. Stupid alarm clock. So we woke up at like 9:50 and so Steve went to church without me, because there was NO WAY I could get a shower and get the baby ready and myself and feed the baby and get there in time. Plus, I had been sleeping on a pillow I don’t usually use, and my neck and shoulders hurt so bad I could hardly move. I had taken my two feather pillows (well actually one is Steve’s but I stole it when E was born and he hasn’t gotten it back yet, he doesn’t use it anyway lol) and put them in my “travel pillowcase” (the spongebob one I made – was too big for one, but fits the two perfectly) for the church thing the other night. When we got home, it was brought in and set on the couch. Later, I didn’t want The Rimshot laying on it so I put it on the rocking chair in E’s room. When I went to bed, I noticed it was gone and I was not about to go in his room to get it, risk waking him up. So I was screwed. Yeah, I know how to make a short story a long one, don’t I?
Well then Sunday night we went to pick up Elijah’s photos – and they turned out great. Only this time I was a little dissapointed because last time they gave me the extra prints (the 3.5X5’s, two each, of all poses) and this time they wanted $20 for them, and a free mat. I want to get them though, so I might buy them later, she said they’d prolly keep them till January sometime. We’re just a little extra broke this week because we paid mortgage. We’re always broke after the mortgage payment. :-)
Today is Monday, well now it is Tuesday, but I’ll edit the date on this thing to make sure it goes on the right day, because to me it’s still Monday! Although, all day I kept thinking it was Tuesday, grrr.
I didn’t get anything done today – not due to taking care of Elijah and trying to get a fire going and keep it going – it’s cold today! I learned that our furnace is not hooked up at all anymore. So if there’s no fire, we’re screwed.
Anyway, gotta go check that stupid fire again and get to bed, I’m beat.


6 Dec 2003 In: Days Go By

Yes, Elijah was up to 4.30am last night (this morning)… well, we all were mostly.
I stayed the night at church as a chap with Karen for the girls and Elijah would just not go to sleep. Not that he was crabby the whole time, but just wide awake. So I am beat, needless to say. I am hoping that he continues to sleep on tonight, through the night.
But I guess we are done breastfeeding finally lol. This morning was the 2nd morning in a row he’s refused me. He started this just out of the blue. I guess he’s decided it’s all bottle now. No skin off my back.
We got our pictures taken today too. And as I thought about it. I didn’t like that girl much afterall. She did the same pose on us three times in an attempt to hurry up and it wasn’t even that great of a pose. I’m sure it looks great for some people, but I don’t think on us. But I ordered one of that nonetheless. Steve didn’t like any of the others, either. But I did order two of the other only two other poses she did. Elijah was screaming in the last one.
Oh well.
Anyway, I hafta log outta this name and onto another to check something on the new church blog… :)
