Day in the Life
1:31am Wake up to pee for the first time in the night. Go back to bed and try to get comfortable.
3:34am Wake up laying on back and worry that baby is not getting enough oxygen. Flip to left side.
4:45am Flip sides. Make menacing gesture to snoring Spud.
7:00am Spud's alarm goes off. Reset until 7:45am. Why didn't you just set if for that time in the first place??
7:44am Finally start to fall into a sound sleep.
7:45am Alarm goes off for the second time.
7:46am Make menacing gesture that is most unlady-like. Pee.
8:00am-9:00am Baby Story on TLC. Get mad at elective c-sections.
9:07am Start filling bathtub with water because water pressure is so low.
9:08am Contemplate peeing again, because of the sound of running water.
9:10am-9:45am Check email, Facebook, and Myspace. Eat cereal and daily banana (prevents leg cramps). Bathe. (sidenote: all actions take place IN the bathtub, simultaneously)
10:00am Laundry sorting. 4 loads today plus working on mountains of hand me down baby clothes.
10:30-11:30am Try to upload pictures from baby shower for the 18th time. Get frustrated.
11:34am Spud fixes problem with one button.
11:35am Continue with pictures as normal.
12:15pm Start writing thank you notes from baby shower due to reminder from mother-in-law.
12:30pm Realize that.... oh wait.. gotta pee.
12:31pm Realize that packet of thank you cards only contains six cards.
12:46pm Fix makeup from crying spell earlier and head out to dollar store for more cards.
1:20pm Pee at Dollar General.
1:29pm Check out. As receipt is printed, realize there's Tinkerbell wrapping paper.
1:35pm Check out again with $3 worth of things on debit card plus Tinkerbell wrapping paper.
1:36pm Walk out door and see Tinkerbell window clings. Leave store disgusted.
1:50pm Arrive home and put dollar store treasures away.
1:53pm Switch laundry ("Didn't you hear it stop, Spud??")
1:59pm Settle down to write thank you cards.
2:01pm Settle back down to write thank you cards.
2:20pm Finish checking Facebook.
2:30pm Decide to write blog about day. Shove unwritten thank you cards out of the way.
This week's complaint: Christmas rush at work means longer hours on feet.
This week's development: Tater tot doing full body rolls. That hurt.
Baby's size: Size of a soccer ball or the weight of four navel oranges.
