There’s No Earthly Way of Knowing… What Direction We are Goooooing

Posted on | June 11, 2010 | 3 Comments

The world looks different when you aren’t sleeping.

Honest. I don’t suggest you try it, but if you’d like to know what I’m talking about, just stay awake for several days. Everything starts to take on a bit of a technicolor sheen… like you just stepped out of your house and into Oz.
Green is greener. Blue? Bluer. And parts of your body you forgot about strangely begin to ache as though you have been hitting the gym. It’s like my whole body is rebelling against this lack of sleep. Seriously, my thighs hurt. They hurt like I’ve been doing lunges… which I make it a point NEVER to do. But they are burning… so are my calves… and my biceps. And I can assure you that I haven’t been to the gym since January. (Despite my membership dues being paid every month, but that’s a story for another day.)
One thing that has been great about this current exhaustion? I don’t care about ANYTHING. My boss gets annoying? Water under the bridge. A bill is late? Brush it off. Nothing really matters except finding a way to grab shut eye. I actually thought about shutting my door and sleeping rather than pumping at work.  I didn’t do it… but I thought about it.
I’m not being very efficient in the office and if I hadn’t had to take last Friday off for furniture delivery, I would have taken today off. As it stands? I’m working. My in-laws are on their way to my house where my Father in law will confiscate Husband and take him to Florida for a fishing trip. Luckily, my Mother in law has consented to spend her weekend in the crazy house that is my life. I’ll be putting her to work, so MIL? Sorry! You’re on baby duty while Momma catches some sleep. (Something tells me she won’t mind too much, since I’m fairly sure isn’t coming to see me!)
Hopefully I’ll get some rest this weekend and I’ll be nice and refreshed for next week. Or I’ll just get crazier and crazier and revert back to some ancient type of communication. Stay tuned… I could be corresponding in hieroglyphics next week.

    I agree 100% with the aching! I feel as if my back is going to break. I think it's from leaning over the crib 10,000 times a night to shush an ever waking child. Can I borrow your MIL when she is done visiting you? I would like a nap!

    I am seriously praying you get some sleep!! I have been thinking about you all week!! I didn't get to read and comment on Friday because Joey had a doctor's appointment but you've totally been on my mind!! When hubby gets back you need to pump and let him take an overnight or two. Seriously, I am worried about you!!
