Blogger Blues & Thursday 13

I havent posted in a while I have had the blues. Really a writers block. I'm going to post my Thursday 13 though...maybe I need cheering up...not sure....the baby has been teething so bad he is either on my hip or my shoulder chewing on me or crying...I have slept in the glider in his room for 2 nights off and on. I'm on about 10 hours of sleep in 3 days. Maybe I'm tired maybe I'm irratable...maybe I'm just worn out..I don't know. Just kinda down.

Here it is my Thursday 13.........

Thirteen Reasons to Be Thankful

1. God.....without him I would be nothing

2. Scott, Madison & Miller.....without them I would be nothing

3. My church...thankful for a great place to worship

4. My parents......they are just fantastic and I admire them both so much

5. My dear girlfriends.....Cindy, Sue, Jess, Emily, Sarah, Dana....without them....I would be crazy

6. Our home...the place we have built together......for our kids

7. Scott's job...so I can stay home and raise our children

8. Air Conditioning in the summer & heat in the winter

9. Beautiful Sunsets & Long walks on the beach

10. Tivo (I know a little crazy...but I love it)

11. To live in a country that is FREE!!!!

12. My 1000 count bed sheets I LOVE THEM!!!

13. Hot baths and candles

So there you have it...things I 'am thankful for......have a great day...

jen...hope you can get some well deserved rest and maybe a break soon! i know the teething thing can drive you crazy. and if i'm ever sleep deprived, i'm a major grump. hang in there....this too shall pass.

Holy Cow! 1000 count? I'd be thankful for those, too.

Sorry you're blue. Lack of sleep has a lot to do with it I'm sure. I just don't function at all when I'm sleep deprived.

Are you giving the baby Tylenol? It's helping Cameron deal with the teething and he's sleeping better with it, too.

Jen - Awesome list!! -- Though I am sorry to hear you are down!! Hang in there, thankfully teething doesn't last forever! (though right now, your body is most likely feeling like that)

Keep the infants tylenol going!!!!! And rest when you can - a sleep deprived mommy is NOT a good thing!

Hang in there -- Dee

I hope you get some well deserved rest :)

Teething can be so hard, mine used to get diarrhea and fevers everytime they were teething, it was just horrible. Hope Miller feels better soon. :)

I've missed your posts.
