What's Happening Wednesday- feels like we are stuck on repeat!

--- The kid has another ear infection (opposite ear from last week). Oh boy! This means we are still not getting any sleep around these parts. That's how it goes with little ones I know, but knowing that doesn't make it any easier on the body.
--- I have been going to bed at 7:30 or 8 most nights this year. Yay 2013! Ha! Serious this year is just not starting out awesome for me.
--- I am trying to watch The Biggest Loser again this season. I used to be a committed fan. I think I quit when Jillian left maybe, not really bc she left, but kinda funny bc this is her first season back. I have only made it thru the first episode due to the early bedtime and sheer exhaustion. Anyone else watching?
--- I heard that the CW has just started a series called "The Carrie Diaries" which is a prequel to Sex and the City. It shows Carrie in high school. Interesting. Anyone watching that? If so, how is it?
--- In between late night cry-fests, my kid really has been adorable lately. We have had an awesome time running around the house, tackling and tickling. He has the best laugh ever. This age is super fun.
--- This age is also bringing lots of "No's!" And "Move's" from little mister independent. Not a fan.
--- I am typing this from my van. The kid is sleeping and he needs sleep sooooo badly that I am not chancing him waking up by moving him. So we have been sitting in my driveway for quite awhile. I am about to take a nap too. This is motherhood in the trenches. You do what you have to in order to survive.
--- In relation to the last point, I am sooo thankful for modern technology at moments like this. I have been able to send some work emails, read a Devo and blog during this nap. Yay.
--- Did I ever post that my thyroid is all jacked up again (or thyroid levels I should say, seeing as how I don't have an actual thyroid)? Found that out right before Christmas. Yay. The saga continues. Time to get back on track and get this weight off. Again. My life really is on repeat in so many ways.
--- Speaking of Weight, we are about to kick off another round of our Weight Loss Challenge at "work". It is for anyone, not just my work, and is very low key. Last semester we all gave $15, weighed in at my office once a week (public can come there too), did measurements twice, and then the biggest loser won $ and so did a random drawing. Justin actually won! It was just to give us some motivation. If your interested and would be able to come to Preston to weigh in every week or every other week, let me know.
--- Our building at church is almost done! It will be soo strange (but so nice) to be under one roof. This have never once been the case since we have been at Smiths Grove. Pray for our church family as we get to the harder parts of the process (decorating, ordering furniture etc). Lots of opinions and things are so expensive.
--- Promise the playroom is almost done and will be posted soon. We are sooo loving having an organized space to play and hangout.
--- Alright Teen Mom fans, are Maci and Ryan back together or no? I keep randomly reading that but I can't tell if its random gossip or truth?

That's all the randomness I have for today. Pray my kid gets better. Seriously. I need sleep, he needs sleep, and Justin needs sleep. I am thankful for grace during these rough nights. It's so easy to take frustration out on your spouse- they are the only ones there (to be fair, I have yelled at Joey quite a bit too).

What's up with you this Wednesday?

  1. I'm so sorry Griffin is feeling bad again, and that you're dealing with the exhaustion of it. I know exactly where you are...been there done that. I may be getting ready to do it again with baby no. 2. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help out.
