I totally jinxed myself yesterday. It’s almost as if Ashlin heard me, read the entry about how well she’s been sleeping this week, and decided to totally throw it to all hell. She was up every. two. and. a. half. hours. It was like she was a newborn again. <sigh>
Yesterday I was so tired, (even with the extra sleep), that my eyes felt like they were burning. Today, they’re past that. Dry and scratchy. Blurry. Heavy.
The girls were good when we got home. Mostly. Ashlin did seem super tired, cranky. As she should be, having been awake half the night. We got them fed and I took Ashlin up while Teagan stayed downstairs with Stu and watched Cat in the Hat. I almost fell asleep trying to rock Ashlin down for bed. She just wanted to
play with pull my hair. Eventually I got her down, and tucked her in, started her glowworm and snuck out.
Just finishing up a bit of wwilfing and maybe some ice cream before going to an early bed. Maybe not. After almost 11 months of little sleep, in buckets of no more than four hours at a time, there are very little reserves. I need to be able to function tomorrow.
I’m so tired.
I do know it will get better. I just
need want it to be better soon.
