Sleep? What's that?

So, it's been 2-3 weeks now of baby not sleeping at all during the night. He wakes up numerous times a night. At first I thought it was because he was stuck on his belly and couldn't move, because he isn't always hungry. But then sometimes I end up feeding him because nothing will calm him down. A few times I have fallen asleep with him on my shoulder in the rocking chair...has he become one of those kids that needs to be picked up all the time? I hope not! Maybe he's teething...? All I know is I am walking around like a zombie. AHHH! I can't imagine going to work like this, and I'm not quite sure what I'll do once I do go back probably starting in December.

Wouldn't it be nice if we were all celebs and could hire a full-time nanny to feed our babies and get up in the middle of the night with them? No wonder people like Heidi Klum and Jessica Alba look so refreshed and make it all look so easy. BOOOOOOO. No fair.

Early Christmas Decorating

Like I said, I already started decorating for X-mas...

Since we don't do Thanksgiving at our house there is no reason for me to have T-Giving stuff out, right?

Plus...for this year...I want to get into the festive mood early. I am looking forward to going to Mass. for X-mas so I'm overly excited in general...

Sunday is for relaxing, and long runs? Uhhh...

Hey all. So, this is a nice Sunday morning. Had the usual wake-ups last night what with Logan rolling onto his belly and getting stuck, and then needing to eat around 2:30am...then Mike's alarm blairing at 5am and waking ALL of us up. He's really got to figure something else out...or at least turn that thing down. So, Mike got up and went for a 20 mile run and I am just hanging out here! It's cold out there; he must be miserable! AAAND it even snowed a little bit last night, yeyyy! Love it.

I started some Christmas decorating already, but I don't think it's too early because it will be here before we know it! We have a busy December: a trip to Tucson, a trip to Vegas, and a trip back east for the holidays. AGGH. So much. Maybe I can finagle my way out of one of them? I wanted to be rested and relaxed for the trip home but that might not happen...oh well. Tucson is the 1/2 marathon for me and marathon for Mike. I'm really dragging in my training. It's just so boring to run for longer than an hour by yourself, ya know? I could do speed work any day as it is variable and quicker than a long run...those long runs kill me with boredom...which is why I have been slacking on them. I really need to get a few more of them in before the race. The thing is, I know I can run the 13.1 just fine. And not at a bad pace either. At this point, though, I am not in good enough shape to get anywhere near my PR (1:47), so even if I really push it in my training I will only take off a couple seconds, maybe. Basically, I am just doing this to get in shape and finish the race etc etc. I don't have the base down to run much faster. Maybe in the spring I'll be ready to try and close in on that PR. We'll see.

Have a great Sunday :-)

Men are babies!

So, this is a funny video about a guy going through the same pain as a woman in labor. It's not really the same...seeing as most first-time moms are in labor wayyy longer than he is. He gets the general idea, though, and the fact that he doesn't want to go on shows men are babies! Hahaha!

Running, Dogs, Worry-Mom

What's up my friends? I made some curtains out of some red french toile, oohhh I love french toile, they came out pretty good! Pics are above. Oh, and some other picture of me doing a tree-pose. I'm not even into yoga? It's too slow for me, I get bored. Anywho.

So I did a 4 by 1 mile repeat workout yesterday, and my legs hurt. I didn't finish it due to stomach cramping - I cut my cool down short. I didn't do so badly, actually, I'm finally starting to be able to run a weeee bit faster without being in immense pain lol! I'm also down in weight, which is cool. Hopefully that will keep coming off, but for now, I am pretty happy with where I'm at!

I was thinking about something, and thought I'd ask...does becoming a mom make you a worry-wart? For exmaple, Logan will be laying on the floor and the dogs will come galavanting into the house and I will jump and lunge in front of L so he doesn't get trampled. Before, I probably would have just said "meeehhh he's fine! needs a bump or two!". Now? Not so much. I am like, "STOP THE DOGS. OMG!!!!" Have I lost my mind? Granted, our bigger dog does weigh about 90 lbs...now that could do some damage.

Subbing and Oral Fixations

Hey all I haven't been around this week really, been busy. So, not that any of you care, but we FINALLY got internet and a home phone here - we were stealing internet from the neighbors and it hardly ever worked properly. It took me forever to upload pics, download songs, and do pretty much anything. So, now we're like a normal household! WOW!

Oh, and guess what?! I am so happy, I am going to substitute teach for Albuquerque Public Schools! I applied in hopes I would get the job, but didn't really have my heart set on it because APS is a HUGE district, and there are a LOT of teachers, so it would have been easy for me to fall through the cracks. However, something must have caught their eye because I'm going in for orientation next week! It's a great gig because I can do do it part time - but now I am looking for day care for L. There's always this issue of how expensive it is and if it's worth it...but I am going to see a place this morning where the girl gave me a reasonable price and she sounded nice. So we'll go check it all out and see if it's doable. After numerous calculations I have concluded that I will indeed be making money and not putting ourselves in the hole (like I hear what happens to many moms who go back to work...) So that's good right? Maybe some money to actually DO stuff with, and buy myself some new jeans considering I wear the same pair every day. Jeans with a hole in the crotch probably aren't acceptable dress code...

Alright, time to get on the wagon for the day. Logan is sitting in his infant chair watching me, with his fingers/hands/fists shoved down his throat. I swear to god, this kid maybe goes 5 minutes a day with his hands out of his mouth. The rest of the time it's this weird and ridiculous oral fixation. He basically doesn't use the binkie any more. Any one else have experience with this? I guess it's normal, but it's still odd.

Have a great Thursday. Get decorating for Thanksgiving! I kind of skip all that and go straight to Christmas...what? I like it.
