I promise, I'm still around...really! I can't believe I've let 17 days pass without a single post! I miss blogging...and crafting...and sleeping! Ohhhh sleep. How I miss you. *sigh*
By now, I wouldn't be surprised if y'all thought I disappeared, or quit blogging...or I could be totally wrong and no one could miss me at all! Regardless...I have a question for all my fellow moms out there:
HOW THE HECK DO YOU DO IT?!
I feel as though I'm barely keeping my head above water...I'm just treading, treading, not actually making progress and it's not long before I'll be sinking! Baby C is nearly 5 months old and I haven't slept more than 4 hours at a time since he arrived. We weren't able to breastfeed so now I'm strictly pumping which means I can only really stretch it out to 4 hours at night...so I usually get 2, almost-four-hour-stretches each night and that's it! Any other pumping mamas out there? Help? Suggestions? Tips? Wine? HA.
Seriously though, aside from that...during the day, between the time Baby C demands of me (rightly so) and the demands of keeping up with the house (which I'm barely doing), I never have time for anything.
It makes me sad! Not only that, but I feel as though I've lost a lot of connections with people, since I don't leave the house much. Surely I am not the only mama feeling this way?
On the plus side, we did get a re-do of our vacation. We spent a week in the Isle of Palms and it was...well, it was "good". I won't say great, because frankly, Baby C was just not ready for a trip I don't think. So that was stressful. But he seemed enthralled with the ocean, and didn't mind the sand! I hope to get a few pictures of that up soon. Here's one for you until then...
Yes, I am in fact THAT pale. No, a week of sand and sun did not help anything. I don't tan...although a few of my freckles have been known to sporadically connect ;)
