I asked my husband how in the world I can go so long without sleep? He simply said, "God". Duh! Oh, my I feel like I'm in a fog. Another night of no sleep. I did manage to pray up each of my children last night as I lay there.
Before Steve left for work I started to cry. He hates it when I do that, but I told him it is good for me to let my emotions out every now and then. The thought of facing the day with five kids who want their own way about everything was enough to make me cry!
I need God's strength. I have none of my own at this point. I need a nap! Steve told me to put the kids in front of a movie and give them popcorn. I think I will.
St. Patrick's Day was nice. Steve ran to the store and bought a corn beef for us all and threw it in the crockpot. I'm so glad that man is not afraid to cook. He watched the kids while I went and got my bangs trimmed, went to the Post Office and then had a prenatal massage. The massage felt really good, but I was too long in one position and it made my hips ache something terrible. She did some pressure points, but I don't think it was long enough to get anything moving. I go see John (my other massage therapist) tomorrow. He might be able to do something. After he did the pressure points with my sister she was in full labor with Hailey in two hours. Wouldn't that be nice?
I'm still trying to pack, I should probably make some kind of list. I just remembered a toothbrush last night and my vitamens. I am trying to line up people to watch the kids.
The kids have AWANA tonight, unless they lose time off their bedtime. I'm secretly hoping they will, then we won't have to go. It makes it for a late night. They don't get to bed realistically until 8:45 or so. They are always so wound up afterwards either. They give them tons of candy.
I'm going to pull out one of those handy-dandy meals that I have in the freezer. I was going to save them for when the baby comes, but I guess it makes more sense to do use them when Steve is not here to help me.
