Yeah, this is the girl who never EVER sleeps or takes a nap. She's conked out on the floor. Apparently she fell asleep for 10 minutes while I was sleeping this morning and Marcus took a picture. At least she got a little sleep. But it's still going to be a very rough day. And I have a feeling that physical therapy won't be so fun today.

When Was The Last Time...
you cried because you were so tired? Because I did this morning. I'm so so so tired. And I'm so happy that it's overcast so I don't have to deal with extreme heat on top of it. It seems like no matter how hard I try to get more sleep, I can't do it. For 2 nights in a row I've gone to bed at 9:45pm. It's not super early, but I think that's making a really good effort. Both nights, I have not been able to sleep. Samantha isn't sleeping. I don't know what the problem is, but at 1am she woke up and was yelling. So, at 1:45am I went in and decided she needed Benadryl. I know, perhaps this isn't a good-mother thing to do, but if it makes anyone feel better, it didn't work! So, she was up all night. I sure I drifted off last night, but then again at 6am she was yelling. I went in to see if she would fall back to sleep, because sometimes she will if I hold her. Nope. Not happening. She just decided to be really fussy. I took a shower while Sammy slept on the couch, and cried. When Marcus woke up and got ready, I asked when he wanted to go to work. I had 20 minutes to lay down, and I did. He went to work later than he planned so I could get 45 minutes. Thank you Marcus!
But really. I'm so tired. I'm functional right now at least. Last week was really busy and I didn't get much sleep. There was a night the week before when I got 4 hours of sleep. That was a rough one. And this lack of sleep has built up and I don't know what more to do, aside from going to bed when the kids do. And, I don't want to do that. And Sammy is just complaining and I'm just not feeling all that compassionate right now. Grrrr!
