Breaking Dawn

I pre-ordered Breaking Dawn from Am@zon. Apparently when you go for super-duper free shipping or whatever it's called, it means you have to wait until MONDAY to get your vampire love book. So I got it Monday, and I just finished it and I am happy. And can finally start getting some sleep again.*

Dh has been gone since Monday morning on a rafting trip for the teen boys in our church congregation. No cell phone reception in the back of beyond where they're at, so with no contact I find myself really missing him and his voice.

Which reminds me. Dh made a casual reference to something I said on this blog recently. As soon as I caught the reference, I frantically started a mental scroll through my recent posts to make sure I hadn't said anything too rude about him. I remembered the post in which I ranted about his slobbiness, but he was smiling, so I guess it didn't bug him. I had just assumed he didn't read this thing.

I had this terrifying dream last night that my m-i-l invited someone to live in MY house. And then my m-i-l morphed into my own mother, and seemed to also be living in my house. It was such a nightmare. I am firmly in the "Houseguests stink after three days" camp.

Ace has been waking up anywhere from 2-4 times a night. Twice, I can deal with. Three, meh. Four? H NO. I am too grouchy without decent sleep, so for his own sake he should really cut that out. I have these memories of Miss E sleeping like a dream, so I looked back in my journal** this evening - turns out I have major rose-colored glasses when I look into my past. She was getting up 2-4 times a night at this age too, and taking 1-hour naps during the day just as Ace is now. So I am just trying to chill and ride this out.

*Fantasy just doesn't work when you're being constantly interrupted by your little ones, so I read BD during naptime and after the kids were in bed. Which meant late nights.

**Yeah, I keep a journal and a blog. I can't really explain it.

Every now and then my husband will mention something he read on my blog and make fun of me about when I did my post about the New Kids reunion.

Izzy still wakes up twice per night, so you're not alone. Porgie actually woke up 2 or 3 time per night until she was a year old.

AHH Breaking Dawn! I'm number 300 and something on the list at the library because I am too cheap to buy it.

I'm glad I'm not alone in the wakeful baby at night, 1-hour naps during the day camp. SHEESH, when will this END? I am so tired, especially now that I'm back at work.

I bought the book the day it came out and have yet to find time to read it (and I don't even have kids yet.) It's probably for the best now because Josh is getting really tired of me talking about Bella and Edward as if they exist and also is annoyed by the fact I think I know everything about how vampires work. SO... he went and bought a book on the history of vampires just so he can counter my statements with what he calls FACT.
