Last night, the can't-sleep bug bit big time around my house. Of the seven living creatures in this house, only two managed to sleep through the night. It all started when hubby and I headed to bed around 11. I went in to check on the boys and discovered that Oldest Kiddo was wide awake. He got a drink, went potty and got back in bed. I went to bed and stared at the ceiling for an hour. Hubby went right to sleep, of course. Meanwhile, I couldn't sleep so I planned our dinner menu for now until we move. Right as I was trying to decide if red beans and rice for three nights a week was pushing it (what?! it's on sale for a dollar a box at the commissary and I have $1 off 3 boxes...so that's like buy 2 get 1...), Baby Girl woke up. This, of course, woke up the dogs. Eventually, I managed to get everyone back in their beds and back to sleep. Well, except for me and the dogs. We fought over covers and pillows until about 3 am. How hubby slept through all that I will never know.
My life is generally complete chaos and I love it. I am an Army wife, the mother of 3 kiddos, the servant of 2 dogs, and a full-time student. I love books and cooking. I appear to be completely random, but it all makes perfect sense in my world.
