Am I alone or is anyone else's house a complete shambles?
OMG, yes about the repulsed by DH thing! I mean, it's bad. It's to the point where I'm like, ugh, don't wait for me to finish, just do what you need to do and lets get this overwith. I don't say that, but I'm thinking it on the inside. I haven't faked anything yet, but we'll see what happens next time when things are just going on for too long.
And my house is a DISASTER. It's a big contributing factor of this horrible depression. I can't seem to clean ANYTHING, nor do I want to b/c things just end up in piles, and the piles get moved from one place to another. There's not enough room for anything. We need more storage. So I sit and stare at the mess and it drives me insane.

I can't help you figure out how to get Ally Rae to sleep not on you either, unless you start off slowly putting her down to nap. What works for our family is putting Nora to sleep (once she falls asleep on myself or DH) on the floor in the living room. Or else, we let her fall asleep in her swing. I personally don't see anything wrong with doing that as long as she is somewhere safe, but of course, you have to do what you feel comfortable with.
And no, I couldn't have sex with Nora in the room. I can't even have sex with the cat in the room, let alone a human baby! I'd just feel so weird even if she were
AAM - I am dreading making a phone call to my good friend. She decided to have a destination wedding in Punta Cana (we live in NJ) after I agreed to be a matron of honor. Sounds fun, right? Yeah, well, she tells me the date a few days ago via Facebook - December 29, 2009.
Not only is it right in between Christmas and New Years, which means it's going to be SO EXPENSIVE to fly anywhere, it's also going to be Nora's first "real" holiday season. I don't want to leave family around that time of year. I don't want to go to the Dominican Republic with a 1 year old, either. I just don't think I can commit to being in her wedding and being her matron of honor, but I really don't want to make the phone call telling her this b/c ... well, I don't want to disappoint her. But I think she'd be more disappointed overall if I pretend that I can do it and then bail out last minute, or something like that. WWYD?
