Today I am just grumpy. I woke up that way. I have pushed myself hard these past few days without even knowing it. From my mom getting here on Thursday I’ve been going non-stop. Friday we cleaned out the nursery and if that wasn’t a busy day enough, Chris and I went to dinner for our 5 year anniversary. It was fun to get out, but the food wasn’t that great. We went to J.Alexander’s for something new, and neither of us were super impressed. It was so incredibly busy and loud. By the time we sat down, we were starving. He ordered a burger, and I ordered BBQ chicken sandwich. We topped our overly stuffed bellies with ice cream from Sonic (which was yummy), but I paid for my food indulgences that night with severe heartburn. I woke up every 30-45 minutes to eat a Tums. I had to sleep sitting propped up in bed, or otherwise the food was thinking about making a return. I finally took Prilosec and fell asleep about 4:30. Why didn’t I take it sooner? I think it was because I was sleepy and because I was trying to reason with myself that less medicine is best for the babies, so I will tough it out.

Saturday, we woke up and traded furniture with the Taylors. While I didn’t have anything to do with this physically, it was still tiring for me. We went to visit them after all the furniture swapping took place, and I think that pushed me just enough. I never feel like I’m over doing it in the process, it is when I stop that my body lets me know I’ve done too much. On the way home I had about 4 contractions – yes a little scary. I continued to have about 1 ever hour, but they weren’t that intense. I drank about a gallon of water, and rested in my bed until I fell asleep around 10:30. I slept okay last night. I just think my body is still tired from doing so much.

Harper has been the Queen of Whine today, and mom and I can’t figure it out. She’s eaten, she’s slept, her diaper has been changed. I think she is tired of being cooped up inside. Hope we all wake up in better moods tomorrow because it is supposed to rain until Tuesday. We’ll all be itching to get outside on Wednesday morning.

Must sign off… the Baby Einstein theme song is playing for about the 40th time, and I can’t handle it any more!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I will post other more *happy* posts later. Just had to vent. Some days are good, some days are bad…

But my God remains the same, and I am thankful that He isn’t affected by my mood!
