Okay, whine going away now after sitting up there at the top of my blog page so pathetically for the last 2 weeks. This has been a hard, hard week, though, where I've just needed to keep my head down and get through it. My mother had double knee replacement surgery and I helped take care of my 2 little brothers while she was in the hospital; we helped a friend with emergency overnight childcare while she labored with her 2nd baby; I planned and held a Girl Scout meeting to plan for Sister's troop's camping trip next weekend with a rowdy Bean also in attendance; Husband left town for 4 days; and Bean was not only in a foul mood but also had trouble sleeping nearly every night that he was gone. I've literally been more exhausted than I can ever remember being. Even having 3 of my college friends over on Friday for our much-anticipated ladies' sleepover didn't really help. I mean, it was great spending time with them, but I felt half-dead and couldn't really enjoy them properly.
Things are looking up now. Husband should be arriving back home in the next hour and Bean slept through the night last night. And that's all it takes for me to be happy and okay again apparently!
