Sleeping in is a Wonderful Thing

fire
Andy has been luxuriating in California at a conference all week. So, I've effectively been a single mom this week. To add insult to injury, he left without giving me my weekend morning to sleep in and...I learned just how much I cherish that sole morning to sleep in. Meanwhile, he's in a nice hotel getting a nice 8 + hours of interrupted sleep while I tackle two kids on my own without having the fortifying influence of a morning to catch up on sleep in over a week.

With that in mind, I am proud of myself for not blowing up his phone with nasty text messages when B and G decided to have a crib party at 2AM the other night. Or calling him at 7AM my time, 5 AM his time this morning and saying "oops, forgot the time difference!" Granted, he's a heavy sleeper and probably wouldn't have heard the damn phone (why is it heavy sleepers seem to marry light sleepers? The littlest thing wakes me up and then I'm pissed that he slept on through...)

I'm also proud that I've kept my cool with the kids, my infinite pool of patience refusing to crack. I was tired as hell on Weds and did some shitty counseling but I made it through.

All this to say, he comes home tomorrow, and if he doesn't offer to give me two mornings to sleep in this weekend, he is dead. So dead. But not until Monday after I take my two mornings by force if I have to!

Hang in there, hun. It will get better (and yes, he'd better allow you some sleep-in time).

Thanks. Not before it gets worse though. She was up at 4:30 and fell asleep the moment he woke up. Times like these I wish I liked coffee.
