You just know I'll end up in labor in this white crap

Last night pretty well sucked. Jasmine went to sleep a little after midnight. I fell asleep a little before one but was woken up about ten after. I'm not sure if it was Jasmine or Shawn that woke me up, he was snoring and she was pinching my arm. (it's a soothing thing she does for some sadistic reason) I stayed in bed for another two hours before I gave up and went to let the dogs out to go potty. While I was waiting for them to be done, I heard what sounded like someone talking. Here comes Jasmine down the hallway, crying because she woke up with no one to pinch. Normally I would've been pissed on the inside. I knew it would be a long time before I'd be able to fall asleep again, however, so I was just thinking what difference does it make if she's awake or asleep. We started to process of getting her back to sleep around five. I believe she fell asleep some where right before seven, as did I. Only to wake up an hour later having to pee. I then woke up just about every hour until just after 11am. (I have no idea why I kept waking up, it's actually weird for me to wake up after I fall asleep unless it's been seven or eight hours) Jasmine woke up at one. Gee thanks kid, six hours of peace and quiet. I turned Harry Potter on and went back to sleep. (she was in bed with me and if she moves while I know she's awake, it wakes me up so she wasn't going to get into anything) She fell asleep again before that was over but woke up long enough to wake me up and say the movie was over and to turn off the tv. Needless to say, I don't really feel like I got a whole lot of sleep. Each time I woke up on my own, I was awake for a while and then when she woke up, I was awake for a while. The only reason I'm positive I even reached REM sleep is because I kept having nightmares. I really hope tonight is a better one as far as sleep goes. Jasmine is still awake so that's a pretty good indication that she will sleep through the night. It's about 50/50 as to what will happen if she is asleep before or right around midnight. We'll both be grouchy as hell after this baby is born due to lack of sleep. Maybe it will put us on a more normal sleep schedule.

The next few days look awful as far as the weather goes. I'm actually a little nervous about Friday. Between about midnight Thursday and midnight Friday, they are predicting we will get around 6.5 inches of snow. That's a lot of snow to fall in 24 hours. I have no plans of leaving the safety of my house in those 24 hours either. Friday is normally my day to get out of the house and go somewhere but I'll skip it this week in exchange for keeping my life, thank you very much. Tonight I was making sure we had enough food for all the animals to last till at least Tuesday. (we're supposed to be snow free on Saturday and then Sunday and Monday are supposed to give us up to another foot of snow) Go figure, I have an OB appointment on Tuesday. Thank god my husband will be off work early in the afternoon and he can drive me. (besides that, the doctor I'm seeing is triple booked for that time and I could end up sitting there for quite a while, never fun to do alone with a three year old) Snow just sucks. It's pretty for all of a few seconds and then you realize that at some point and time, you'll have to leave your house and face that cold white crap. And on top of it all, I have to go to my dad's house for Christmas stuff on Sunday... in the snow and it's almost an hour drive from my house to his. We may have to take the awesomely ugly truck of my husband's as it has four wheel drive.

I'm so sorry it was such a crummy night for sleeping. I hope you get more tonight...or today...or whenever you sleep! ;)

Things look pretty good at the moment, and I'll head out to the P.O. in a little bit. Late tonight sounds really sucky, though. Ken is flying home on Friday...I already told him there will probably be delays, so it could be a late night. I'm hunkering down tomorrow, too.

Don't even joke about going into labor during this nasty weather! I know Shawn would get you there safely, but it would be nerve-wracking!

Love, Beth

Sounds like a dreadful night. I would do with Jas like I do with the dogs when they get into a non sleep pattern.....I don't let them nap at all & keep them running around. They sleep well then!!
