Personal Holiday

Yes, we are still in the land of the living...or as I like to call it back from the Twilight Zone. I used up my 'personal days' last week I think. My own mini-vacation from cooking, cleaning, laundry, and even taking care of my child (I use that term loosely in case there are any DHS employees reading this by chance). MC woke up last Monday not feeling well....then the rainstorms hit. I didn't even need to go to the grocery store (again, cause and effect of the lack of cooking). We never left the house last week! MC helped me out too by sleeping alot (I blamed it on the weather at first, then not feeling well, teething perhaps, then chalked it up to a growth spurt).

So this morning, I decided it was time to get back on schedule. Last night, MC was so fussy I put her to bed early at 7 pm. I missed the Pilates class because I woke up at 9 am! 9:15 am I decided I better go check on her since I haven't heard a peep. You can imagine the thoughts that run through a mother's head. Maybe she fell out of the bed and hit her head, maybe she has respiratory problems. I had to WAKE her up from a dead sleep at 9:15!!! 14 hours and 15 minutes and she was STILL asleep. I called Mom (who by the way is on her way with Dad to New Hampshire) to ask if something was wrong with MC. She laughed and said, "Like mother like daughter!" Then I reminded myself that I could sleep almost 24 hours back in the day when the time called for it. Who's complaining, right?

We had Ladies Night here Saturday. I can't tell you how much fun it was to hang out with JUST girls/other moms with no kids, eat ice cream and chocolate, talk, and ATTEMPT to watch a good movie. We attempted, but we just couldn't stop talking (and I mean that in a good way). At 11:30 pm, it felt like a slumber party! Again, personal days are the BEST! :)

Fourteen hours of sleep sounds good.
