I think I've forgotten what this word means as I haven't been experiencing it much lately so I had to look it up just to refresh my memory. Webster defines sleep as:
1 : the natural periodic suspension of consciousness during which the powers of the body are restored
What exactly qualifies as a natural periodic suspension of consciousness?? And I sure haven't had my body's powers restored lately. Usually I can get a 1 1/2 - 2 hours sleep in between feedings but they've become less and less frequent over the past few nights with last night being the worst so far. Kearsyn started fussing around 11pmish and I didn't get to go back to bed until 5:15am. And that would have only lasted for 15 minutes because she was up fussing again at 5:30. Thankfully, Andy knew that I was at the end of my rope at that point...maybe it was the fact that when she started making noise I immediately hid under my pillow and covers but maybe he had some other clues to help him out. he got up and took care of her so I was actually able to get a couple of hours sleep. Of course that ended when the rest of the kiddos got up...things were good until they finished breakfast at which point they all went to clean up rooms and it sounded like a herd of elephants walking over my head....our bedroom is underneath their rooms. Let me tell you, kids do not know how to walk quietly anywhere...they are constantly stomping around. I'm sure they aren't intending to do that but that's definitely the way it sounds...especially to a sleep deprived mom. Let's hope that tonight is a better night but I'm not counting on it. As a fall back measure, I've made some brownies so at least I can comfort myself throughout the night. ;)

Kenzie and Connor had their first choir concert of the season and from the way Andy described it was a nightmare as far as getting everything set up for them. And the weather was less than ideal for an outdoor concert...overcast and chilly and as luck would have it, as soon as they were done singing and ready to leave, the clouds went away and the sun came out.

I've been trying to finish up reading the book I'm currently reading but it seems to be very slow going...not because the book is bad...just because there's usually a baby in my arms that then interrupts the turning of pages and such...especially when said baby needs to burp and won't. I've also been trying to work on the mini rr I have and that is also slow going since it seems that everytime I pull it out Kearsyn picks that moment to wake up. I have managed to get most of the outside border done but that's taken me about 3 days to do. Luckily, this piece isn't due out til the end of next month so I should be able to get it done by then although at the rate I'm going I think I'll have to become a member of the SSC. LOL

Whew, the wind today/tonight has just been incredible. I'm surprised the twins are actually sleeping right now because they hate the wind. Usually it whistles around their room and scares them so they are usually up and in either Kenzie or Alex/Connor's room. Unfortunately, tonight those three are sleeping over at a friends house so if the boys wake up, they won't be able to find comfort from their older siblings. Let's hope they stay asleep.

And it's now time for me to end this post as Kearsyn just decided to wake up....and so my night begins...Oh and just to add insult to injury, since we turn the clocks back tonight, that will just give me an extra hour to be up with the baby. ;)
