Life with Coco and Gigi... and Jack-Jack too!

Life as a Mom, A Homesteader, A Blogger and A Wife.

Exhausted

All of us are exhausted. None of us get enough sleep. We put frick and frack to bed at 8:30 or 9 and one or the other will invariably be up (in their room) until at least 10. By about 9:30 I have had enough and want to go in and scream at them. They are both so sleep deprived lately with the school schedule but they fight sleep like it's a disease. It feels like a no win.

Then Brian is trying to do as much freelance work as possible. Between medical bills, a new car, surgery bills for me upcoming... it feels like every penny counts. He is the type of person who needs minimally 8 hours a night and is getting nowhere near that.

Then theres me. I never get enough sleep... mom of twins, a mountain of work and insomnia are a deadly trio. My hand is slowing me down big time. Everything takes me double time (even this dang post) so I am up even later than my usual 12 or 1 am to keep up with laundry, dishes, cleaning and work. It is simply exhausting!

I know this sounds counter-intuitive, but have you tried putting them down earlier? For us, when KT is super tired she's hard to get to sleep at night.

I wish I was closer (or filthy rich) so I could help with some of your workload!

M- I like that filthy rich idea. :D I think you might be right though. Maybe we need to try backing up bedtime a little bit. Thanks for the thought... I know I should know it but when you are in it it ends up lost. :D I know you know what I mean!

Oh man. This sucks. What an awful snowball of events and timing.

I thought the same thing about putting them to bed earlier. It has worked for us in the past, too.

I also wish we either lived closer to help or had gobs of money to hire an assistant for you. What a poopy situation.

About this blog

Over 8 years we have struggled through 3 IUI's, 6 rounds of IVF, several RE's, hundreds of appointments and the loss of three little angels. Now we find ourselves the proud parents of two perfect little girls and a wonderful little boy!!

Both of our girls struggle with some disabilities but that won't keep us down. Each day has it's own brand of insanity but we love it. Most days I am more monkey wrangler than mother but I do the best I can. Todays goal - getting to tomorrow.
