Okay, they tell you that you loose brain cells during pregnancy but I was under the assumption that they would return after the baby (babies) were out. That is not the case and I believe that having two babies in your belly for 7 months makes you loose twice as many and the never ending lack of sleep and overwhelming exhaustion causes you to continue to loose brain cells. Seriously folks, I am beginning to wonder if I will ever be the same again.
Yesterday morning I loaded up the kiddies and took off to my moms to spend the day and night. (She had a 1/2 birthday party for them which was fun and I'll post pictures of that later on.) That's right, I drove 3 1/2 hours to my moms all by myself only 3 days after we returned from a week long trip to The Big Easy. Who knows where my right mind was when I made these plans. It was definitely NOT lacking 4 days worth of a decent nights rest. From Saturday to the present moment I do believe I have had only about 12-15 hours of sleep. Period.
Oh but the madness does not end there. This morning I got up and drove to Macon to be with my daddy and Nelda and aunts and uncles and go to church tonight. I almost backed out. I almost drove home this morning but Daddy said they would stay with the twins tonight so I could SLEEP and then drive home in the morning better rested. Yeah, I will let you know how that one turns out!
James and Audrey have been sleeping HORRIBLY. If it's not one waking up or crying or groaning or screeching, it's the other! I told Daddy this morning "I am tired, I am weak, and I am worn". And he replied with "at least you're not poor, weak and worthless. Oh wait, yes you are"!!! I do wish I had thought this thing out a little better like perhaps coming up next week but.............it is wondeful to be "home" and with family. Not all of my extended family has seen the twins so their excited!!
I talked to Dana a little while ago and she told me I was a lot braver than her for driving all that way by myself. I told her "No I am not. I'm just dumber."
