Magellan informed me the other day it's been ONE whole week since I've blogged. I can't believe it myself *gasp*! I have been such a slacker. Someone slap me b/c there have been some truely awesome and exciting things going on. But, sadly, I've been in quite the funk lately. I promise to post all about Ella's birthday party and share her pics as they are too cute for words. But, that will have to wait till tomorrow when I have more time.

Right now it's midnight, and I really do need my beauty sleep. We've been having one heck of a time with Ella at night for the last 2-3 weeks, really. She's been waking at least 2-3 times a night and everyone knows mommy gets up with her then. Ella is usually pretty quick to go back to sleep, but hadn't been staying asleep. And she would then wake up at 6am to start the day.

It's hard to say what the real problem is or explain why. First she had a cold, then had 3 teeth come in at once, and then just when I think she's back to sleeping well again, I freaking discover her molars are trying to say hello to us. And she is not happy with that one, let me tell you! She also isn't napping well either which in turn makes for a miserable, evil baby. Hence her new nickname, "Evil Ella."

Add all of those lovely things together and it makes a very tired, snippy mommy. I need my sleep, I love my sleep and when I don't get it, I get into a funk. So, that's where I a funk with no motivation or energy to do anything. For the first time in a very long time, my house is a mess and I really need to vacuum, wash the floors and probably dust again but as I mentioned before, I have no energy to do so. Ella has drained all of what I have. As soon as dinner is done and Ella is in bed, I crash. I get a nice big glass of wine, and lay in bed. By myself. Sometimes it helps me, sometimes it doesn't.

Ok, I am going to go and finish sleeping as this is the first night in two weeks Ella hasn't woken up at 11p *knock on wood*. How nice it would be to sleep til 7am just like the good old days?

Have I mentioned I really despise this whole teething thing? It's SO over rated!
