i should really be sleeping

Yes, I should.

Right now it's 1:30 in the morning and here I am at the computer because I can't sleep.

I am exhausted, so very tired but I can't sleep. I didn't sleep well last night so I should be able to now, right?

Nope.

I fell asleep for about an hour on the couch in front of the television and then woke to check on the two oldest and then came downstairs to find the youngest one in the floor in the hallway. I got everyone back to bed, ate a half of a peanut butter sandwich because I was hungry and tried to go to sleep with no luck at all.

I tried sleeping in my room, tried sleeping on the couch in the living room and...nothing.

All I have to entertain me now is the sound of our basset hound getting a drink from the water bottle attached to her bed where she sleeps at night and this little baby squirming inside of me.

My stomach is growling and I want to eat something but because my middle of the night snacking has caused me to gain way too much weight this pregnancy I am putting it off.

I sit and watch as my legs swell while I sit here...I am indeed an elephant lady with horrible swelling in my legs and feet. Two more months to go.

I hope that you are all having a wonderful night's sleep.

...wish I was, too. Tuesdays are so busy and it's almost 2 here.

Thank goodness it's Matt's week off. I feel like he is doing WAY too much to compensate for what I am not getting done lately. He is way too good to me. And, when I lose patience with the girls for the umpteenth time he kindly distracts them so that I can have a break.

I wish that I had something exciting to share...

Oh, I got a peek at some new Jillibean Soup today that will be released soon and it is adorable.

There's some fun news that I can't wait to share with you. I'm not sure when you'll get to see it but it is very cute and will be perfect for scrapping pictures of our new baby girl once she gets here ♥
