good idea: taking your baby to visit your family for a couple of days
bad idea: taking your teething, constipated baby to visit your family for a couple of days without your husband as backup
Eli and I are back home today after spending some time in New Brunswick. I got a combined total of about seven hours of sleep the past two nights. Those who know me know that's not a good situation for this girl, who needs at least eight (ideally nine) a night to function. I will forever be jealous of people who do well on three or four hours' sleep. Other than the whole night owl foolishness, we had a great visit - lots of good food, Halloween movies, and snuggling with my baby niece.
Tonight I'm looking forward to putting on my un-sexiest PJs and going to bed at an absurdly early hour. Other plans for the weekend include carving our pumpkins and roasting the seeds, making a pot of chili and a loaf of brown bread, a few good workouts, and a walk with the boys in the park before ***FRANKENSTORM*** hits next week and all hell breaks loose. There isn't much that irritates me more than news headlines about weather before the weather even arrives. Seeing people panic about a storm that may or may not even happen and feeding off one another's panic online makes me want to quit the Internet forever.
We'll also be finishing up Eli's Halloween costume this weekend. Can you guess what he's dressing up as?
