It’s really all I want. I slept maybe 4 hours last night, thanks to my aching hips. And then the combination of an obnoxious toddler and same achy hips would not allow me to to nap either. I still had to go to work, and I had to work a later shift than usual. My feet ache. I’m so not in the mood for this.
Saw the OB today, and everything is fine. She said I passed my GT test, and I should have gotten a phone call congratulating me on the matter. She said that my reaction alone was indicative of passing results. I got sick and weak because my blood sugar dropped dramatically, and that would not have happened if I had the diabetes. We talked about my hips, and she recommended I take 2 tylenol and 2 whole benadryl at night to cope, or at least sleep through the discomfort, and I was all, TWO? I don’t handle meds that cause drowsiness well (big surprise — what do I handle well?) But I suppose that if I take them early, like around 6 pm, and head to bed around then, I should be able to awake at a reasonable hour. If I were to take them any later, I would sleep through most of the next day. I have shit to do, people!
Oh yeah, before I sign off, I have to reveal the exciting (and totally unrelated) news: Deven got an award at school! He was apparently given the “Dino Pride” award, for whatever reason, and he gets to have his picture on display in the hallway, and he gets to stand on stage and get a certificate! Okay, so, I’m not sure he did anything to earn it, and they award new kids every week, but he has been in school for all of, like, 6 weeks, and he’s already getting recognition! The assembly is at 7:45 on Friday morning, and yes I plan on being there with my camera and my hand painted sign and Tshirt. I’m so excited for him. I know he is not going to care in the least bit, and he will completely forget about all of this as he ages and gets awards for actual achievements, but I still plan on making a huge deal out of this.
Sometimes I pinch myself because I am a MOM. To a KID. And we’re doing okay. With the chaos I experienced at home growing up, I never imagined I could actually provide a relatively stress-free, stable life to my own offspring. It’s pretty wonderful.
Okay, I have a busy weekend coming up, and I want some of that sleep people keep telling me about. So I will catch up with you tomorrow.
