Seriously, I have not been this tired except immediately post partum. I am setting my alarm every 3 hours around the clock. We are supplementing with fortified breast milk, feeding the baby, and pumping. Between that, a little sleep and eating (like a horse) I don't have time for anything else.
I keep waiting for someone to tell me I am on hidden camera and they are doing a psychological study on sleep deprivation. Libby has gotten used to being in the ergo with me at all times and we are having a hard time breaking that habit.
I once told Taylor that when we do outside work the inside suffers and vice versa. She came in the other day and said,"Mom, remember when you said that about the inside suffering when we do outside work? Well, Grandma is able to do all of it, and nothing is suffering."
My mother in law is amazing. She is so gracious and willing to serve. She is doing everything for everyone around here. She dug out my flowerbeds and put new bark in after some major weeding. She has said that she doesn't know how I do it, well, I honestly don't know how she does it all so well.
My goal is to be as big a blessing to my daughters in law as she is to me!I really hope that she doesn't have to go home anytime soon. She ran an errand for me and said, she really liked the little town of Lynden. I of course, got really excited and told her what a wonderful place it is to live. Maybe we can talk her into moving closer?!
