Uggghhhhhhh sleep deprivation!! It sucks so bad! No wonder it’s used as torture in some parts of the world, because it renders you unable to function! It seems like all my days have run together in one big blur, a pile of poopy diapers and endless sitting in the lazy boy nursing. Sophie is cute as heck (despite a bad case of baby acne) and she’s growing like a weed… she weighed 11 pounds this Monday at the doctor’s which is a gain of 2 pounds in 3 weeks! And, I can get one pair of old jeans on, buttoned and zipped. They are not comfortable, nor would I wear them out anywhere, but I can get them on! Otherwise I’m still in my stretchy stuff and one pair of maternity jeans when I feel the need to wear jeans. They are stretchy and more for early pregnancy or postpartum.
She still insists on being up in the middle of the night, often for hours… and trying to keep her awake more during the day really doesn’t help. I guess this is one of those things that will pass, it will resolve itself one day, but it sure is hard now. I’m just so happy it’s Friday, counting down to the weekend is the only thing keeping me going. And mercifully, Clane has 4 days off at Easter which is only a couple of weekends away.
On another note – I am attempting to make my life a little easier by actually planning my meals for the week ahead of time. I have never done that in my life, I like to cook and have usually made meals with little planning until that afternoon… unless it involves thawing out a large piece of meat. But I am hoping it will help streamline things. I will be able to pick one of the meals I planned on, get all the stuff out (because I sat with the cookbook and made a list before going to the store) and just make it without stressing about what to cook. I am using the America’s Test Kitchens book right now, about everything I’ve made from that book has been really good. So I’ll see how long I can keep this up!
We have crocuses blooming too, they came out this week!
