What's happening?


Today I am sitting at the dining room table on the laptop. It's raining. Raining hard. Not as hard as it was at 6am. At 6 I woke up to rain on our tin roof (that's the NZ way, no I don't live in a shack). It was so loud I couldn't sleep! Wow!

But my lovely husband got up at 7 with Oce and let me sleep in. I'm starting to feel human again.

I lost so much sleep in Samoa. It was a great time, I wouldn't trade it. But oh my word, I don't remember being that tired before! Up in the night with a screaming newborn has a point - up in the night with a screaming 2 year old makes you think, NOBODY ELSE DOES THIS!!!!! I want sleep!

I realized how tired I was when I talked to my sister twice in the last few days and realized I didn't know what she was saying. I was so tired I'd reverted to "Uhm. Uhm. Yeah." And didn't know what was going on. Haha.

There's a pile of folded laundry - clean stuff from yesterday's laundry, clean stuff from our bags, clean stuff from the drying rack I loaded up before we left. And I'm eyeing it up. I need to put it away. Oh, and I need to scrub bright pink lipstick out of the carpet. You'd think that after 2+ years I'd learned NEVER trust a quiet kid?!?!?!?!? AK! I should have taken a picture, there was lipstick from ear to ear, nose to chin. It's on her teeth too. And the carpet. Yay....

Hubby's home - he realized he left his lunch. :)


  1. awww... I hope you get so sleep soon. It's so hard to be a tired mama.


  2. A man without food is NEVER a good thing. Glad he was able to come back and grab it :)

    I would lend a hand scrubbing if I could!


  3. I'm glad to hear you got to sleep in. That was nice of hubby. :)

    Lipstick...... Hmmmmm quiet child. Hmmmmm. Yep a dangerous combination but kinda fun to see the artistic ability in your offspring huh? LOLOL

    Welcome home.

  4. I love the rain, its soothing to me.... I hope you get some sleep.

  5. I have a screaming almost-two-year-old during the nights too. So, next time you're in that position (hopefully never), you can remember there is at least one other person who deals with it.

    I hope you get some sleep soon.
