When I was in University, I’d always say that it wasn’t the next day until I’d slept. I haven’t really slept so I’m not sure 2007 is over yet.
Munchkin and Peanut were both asleep by 7:45pm last night. Great! The both needed the sleep since they are fighting the flu and Hubby and I could have used a nice long evening together. Unfortunately, we got out of the hot tub around 9:00pm to find Munhkin awake.
She couldn’t tell us what was wrong or why she was crying.
“What’s wrong sweetie”
“Nothing,” she sobbed.
“Why are you crying”
“I don’t know” with more sobs.
It ended up that her ear hurt. Not surprising since she’s been so congested and the doctor thought Peanut might have an ear infection. So I gave her some acetaminophen and got her settled back into bed.
The neighbours came over around 10pm to help ring in the new year. 10:30 and Munchkin’s awake again. We decided that with everyone over, we might as well just let her stay up.
We had a fun night of talking and watching various New Years eve broadcasts. The Niagara Falls party was fun to watch as the guy from Styx, Loverboy and Honeymoon Suite were all playing.
Popped the champagne at midnight and finally got to bed by 1:45am.
When Munchkin wouldn’t settle in her own bed, we just let her sleep with us. Not such a good idea after all. She woke up crying several times during the night. At that point, however, if we had moved her back to her room, her crying and screaming in protest would have woken her sister. So she stayed and we got what ever sleep we could.
7:00am – Peanut wakes up after a very good nights sleep. I guess someone deserved to sleep well. Munchkin got up when I got up. Not good since she hasn’t slept enough and the bags under her eyes have bags. I’m sure mine do too.
Now it’s 10 and Peanut is down for her morning nap. I tried getting Munchkin to have a nap too but no such luck.
So I’m awake for the day I guess. Family’s coming for dinner tonight and we have tidying and preparation do to.
Happy 2008!! My first resolution is to sleep!
