Back in the day

Back in the day, I could pull an all nighter and work all day without even blinking. I did it for close to a month straight once. Apparently at 27 I do not have the same gift.

Logan and I stayed up until about 5 this morning talking. All three kids got up at eight. When I heard them, I lurched out of bed and immediately almost lost my balance. Not my finest moment.

If I didn't know for a fact that I had nothing but water to drink last night, I would have been convinced I was hung over. It was horrible. My head was so fuzzy, I had to bribe Jace and Ava with two pop tarts apiece if they would go play in their room. I woke up to feed Seth breakfast and then stuck him on the floor encircled by toys and called it a day, forcing myself to open my eyes to check on him every few minutes. It was not pretty. I still feel like I drank a bottle of wine last night, that wine I can never drink again because of last New Year's Eve.

Logan and Jacob are leaving tomorrow, and I am going to miss them terribly. Even in light of all that's going on, we have had a great visit and the house is going to be very empty without them. I told them both just to get jobs here and stay for the rest of the summer, but they didn't think that was really doable. Losers.

Because seriously, what's more entertaining than communicating by facebook even though you're sitting across the room from each other? I am going to miss tormenting him mercilessly with inside jokes that make no sense to anyone else except for the three of us.

We want to go too. If we wear disguises and pretend we don't know you guys at all, that'll work, right? We'll only communicate with you across the room by waves in morse code.

I want to teach you the cha cha slide, Jacob!!!!!!!! It's imperative for our bonding experience.

im very aware of the cha-cha slide. i believe that it would be a detriment to what you call bonding

NEVER. The Cha Cha slide is the bread and butter of a true bonding experience. If we all got out there and cha cha'd it up, it would probably solve all of our problems. You heard me! Less talk, more line dance.

Before I had my kids I could do the all nighter all day thing. Now, I'd be like you lol. good luck on getting more sleep!

Kingdom Mama said...

Ha! Too cute! And I know what you mean about the all-nighters.

Being a grown-up is no fun sometimes. The only way I can do an all-nighter now is if you are talking about sleeping all night..lol

Lysana said...

Hee. The chat is too funny. It sounds like you had fun! :) I only half know what you mean about all nighters, though - I've never been an all-nighter sort of person, even back in college!

Glad you had a good time the other night, though. I know you needed it. I'll keep praying for you and your family.
