for all the mamas with rough days, illness, etc!
I've been scarce and am suddenly realizing it. Actually feeling a bit lonely for local friends I haven't seen or talked to in nearly a week.
My FIL and his wife are here right now, staying with us, so that meant we had a lot to do to get the house ready for them. I think we did fairly well, though, and now that they're here we'll be busy with them. We thought they left Wednesday, but turns out it's Monday. So we'll be back to normal life before TOO long.
I've been getting next-to-no sleep, with waiting for Judah to fall asleep at night before I can get to the work around here that needs to be done, then being up most of the night and still having to get up. Ugh. So I ought to go to bed now, too, but have to figure out what I need to do before I go to bed...
Judah took forever to fall asleep tonight. It's driving me nuts. At least I figured out a way to hold him to get him to sleep, but I basically have to sit and wait for him to be tired enough to give it up, then hold him just right so that he will relax (he will sometimes but not always nurse down now), and stay there until he's sound asleep. I messed it up earlier and had a looong wait to get him back to sleep.
Anyway, we're planning to go to the Art Museum and Children's Museum tomorrow, so hopefully that will be fun! I really enjoyed snuggling with Judah in a buckle tai at Whole Foods today, so I'm looking forward to more snuggle time tomorrow.
ETA: And now I'm really bummed, because as I sit here feeling a bit lonely, I see a new post on a friend's blog, with comments and pictures about the great girls' night out she and my closer friends had. Without, of course, inviting me. Not sure if it was tonight, when of course I have guests in town, or another night, when they just didn't think to invite me, or if it's because they wanted to hang out and have some adult beverages and I don't drink, or because they were scrapbooking and I don't "really" scrapbook, or if they just figured I'm too busy, because I've had way too much going on lately. While it's true that two of the three have asked me to let them know when I can get together (and I found a time to suggest to one, so far), it's quite a downer to see that THEY found a time, and didn't so much as mention it. But, I guess that's why I feel lonely, because I really don't have much in the way of friends.
