life gets pretty heavy and I wish it was light

Last night Liam went to sleep at about 10 p.m., and didn't wake up until 5 a.m. So today I feel a bit more human. We've had some rough nights, no pattern yet to his sleeping/nursing "schedule". By 6 weeks my others were a bit more predictable and the sleep deprivation cured. Not so this time around, and so as a result I'm thoroughly unproductive, highly irritable, and somewhat fatalistic about our chance of routine. I am definitely at the place where I'm positive that I can't raise 5 children who won't end up in prison. Or hating me. Or both.

I think I'm also just grumpy because CJ left.

Our Montana finally went to Pontiac hell, and left us with paying off a van that must be towed to the junkyard. God graciously provided us with a vehicle through the family of friends (thanks Janelle & Craig!) and so we're mobile again. The "new" van, though 6 yrs old, runs great and is such a blessing, as it was much more affordable than we had hoped for!

For Thanksgiving, we've been invited to "The Camp", Rob & Steph's lake house in the Poconos, to celebrate with Rob's family. It'll be nice and crowded, with 7 adults and 13 kids. We'll get up really early Thursday morning and drive up in time for dinner, and probably leave Sat. morning (duh, have to be home to watch the ND/USC game). After so many years in SA its hard to think about Thanksgiving away from the Warren homestead. Molly is having a hard time with the first holiday away, and we'll all be missing them while we're thanking God for them.

Ah! I can't wait till Baby CJ starts sleeping through the night like Liam!

Granny said...

Yeah, well it's not too easy thinking about having Thanksgiving without you guys here, ya know? I'm not quite ready to admit how many tears I've shed over this...

I'm glad for all of you that you'll have the distraction of lots of people and a gorgeous setting, and I hope it's wonderful!

I will be praying for you as you chart these new waters with 5 children

Your Pontiac is probably comparing stories with our Dodge, which left us high and dry while we were on a 6 1/2 hour family trip! It's dead and gone now, and I've spent my first month on foot, with seemingly many more to come. Ah, how spoiled I was.

I do hope you get that little guy to sleep soon. I'm about ready to enter your world on that one, too.
