It’s December. I have photos to post from the company we had starting in mid-November until the end of November. Late, yes I know. But I was so tired after we were finally home without guests, I didn’t much feel like trotting online, then the baby got sick, then I got sick, then Devin got sick… so we are all just now kind of coming out of it. The poor baby has the worst of it, she is still coughing and has a runny nose 24/7. It’s so sad to see her sick. But she is seeing the light at the end of the tunnel, and is getting her energy back. Clearly – since she started walking yesterday.
So. Back to mid-November. Jamie (my sister) & Stephi (me and Jamie’s oldest friend) came up to SF to visit with us for my birthday! It was so nice of them to do that because honestly we would probably have just skimmed over my birthday this year if it wasn’t for them.
The plan was to go out dancing, but the 2 nights previous to the girls getting here Sadie was a total nightmare at night. I’m talking like up 8-10 times a night. Sometimes crying for over an hour at a time. Oh lordy, it was the worst ever. I felt like I had a newborn again, except worse, because I didn’t have all of that newborn baby adrenaline pumping through my body.
So needless to say, we didn’t make it out that first night.
The next night my folks arrived, and they volunteered to stay in with Sadie and let all of us (girls + Devin) go out to a bar. So we went to our neighborhood Tiki Bar and got some really fancy-umbrella-filled-on-fire-hangover-cocktails. Totally fun.
Until we got home. Sadie must have had some type of an internal alarm set to go off every 5 minutes once I got home and into bed. There’s really nothing like coming home tipsy after a night of much needed care-free fun to be instantly pulled back into the reality that I had a fussy baby that needed me all night. And then needed to get up at 5:45am. It was such self-inflicted torture that I’ve learned I can only do that if I’m spending the night away (which I’ve yet to do.) To be totally honest, I was still recovering from that one night long after Thanksgiving.
And that’s the thick of it. Life ain’t what it used to be. I’m living in Sadie’s world now.
