The longest day

Yesterday had to be one of the longest I've had.  I was up early with the girls and then I jumped right into unpacking, organizing and putting things away.  If I wasn't doing one of those things, I was either feeding or holding a child. 

Rosie was extra needy and whiney yesterday, so that made it pretty stressful.  Also, Mark had work and then a meeting until after 9pm.  I was never so glad to have adult contact and I was never so tired when he walked in the door.  I ended up working until I had unpacked every box downstairs (not counting the garage).  Now, the stuff is not all put away, but its out of boxes, so I feel pretty good about that.

I was so exhausted when I climbed into bed last night and was so looking forward to a good night's sleep, but sadly that didn't happen.  Keeks was up quite a few times in the night and so was Monroe.  Of all nights!  Keeks had been sleeping from 9pm until 5:30am lately, so you can see why I was surprised to have to be up three times with her!

Mark had a seven o'clock meeting this morning and both girls woke up at 6:55.  I brought them both in bed with me where we rested until 7:45.  Then my day began again with breakfast prep for Rosie. 

I kind of feel like I am still asleep, but I'm pretty sure I'm not.  Who knows though, I could be a sleep blogger.  All I can say is, TGIF!
