Thick skin.

It turns out I don't have very thick skin at all. Not that I ever really thought I did, but I could sure use it now. Everyone is grumpy today. I was up twice in the night. Once at 2:30 a.m. for one of the boys' nightmares. Then again at 4:30 a.m. for one who had an accident in bed. I was worn out and it occurred to me that I never seem to go longer than three hours without my sleep getting interrupted. I guess this is just motherhood, plain and simple, but after months and years, it really starts to wear a person down. Today, Micah has had meltdowns or tantrums about every 30 seconds to every two minutes. My nerves are shot. I can only brush it off for so long and then I start to lose it myself. Poor baby. He really needs a nap. I am not sure what is going on with him, but it's wicked. They are eating now, and I am just finishing my own lunch. I fed the horses early so I would be ready to do a workout as soon as Micah goes down, which may end up being earlier than usual at the rate he is going.

Oh yeah, I started working out again last Thursday. I have done well so far, and my ankle and wrist seem to be up for the challenge, so we'll see how I do. Today is cardio, and a crazy long one at that. It will be interesting with the boys. They seem to insist on watching the whole time. Well, Cody also tries to participate, but doesn't make it to the end of the workout. Today's will be an hour long, so hopefully they will get bored and go play. I hope I don't have a narcoleptic episode in the middle of it. I'm practically comatose already.

Looks like it's time to go. Hopefully the rest of the day will be more pleasant than the morning has been!
