Inarticulate ramblings at 1:45 in the morning

Last night was just a bad night. Plain and simple. But today was much better. My day started very early with the birds chirping loudly and then a phone call from the A/C guy...followed by the A/C guy at my door at 8am. I was happy to have him fix the air, so I didn't care. We left and went to VBS although I was incredibly exhausted after no sleep. VBS is so exhausting. It is just crazy, but good at the same time. It's like the day is over and you never had time to barely do a thing other than work like a workhorse, and you're not sure where all the time went, or how you made it out alive, but it's done and it always a good feeling. Tomorrow is the last day. Hip Hip Hooray!

We went to see High School Musical tonight (put on my our wonderful Children's Musical program in Bville). I loved it, well mostly. There about a million sound and lighting errors and one of the lead roles wasn't casted correctly *(in my opinion) but other than that everyone else did a WONDERFUL job. It always impresses me how much time and effort and money goes into their productions each summer...

Anyway, my crazy husband and bunch of youth are going to see the 3am (yes, A.M.) showing of Batman tonight IN TULSA. So wow...yeah there just aren't words for that...there is nothing, short of Christ's return that would pull me out of bed at 3 am to drive to Tulsa. I think all of those crazies (yes, it is sold out) just paid to sleep in a loud dark theater...and then they'll all be on the road at 5am (get back at 6am) and be worthless the rest of the day. (as they all work...at VBS).

So so so glad to be sitting in an air-conditioned house. It makes my SCREAMING 20 month old much more tolerable. Yes, that is why I am up at 1:43 in the morning. She did this last night too. I am pretty much hating it. But at least I am cool. I think she is teething her final 4 (minus molars, unless they are coming in too) teeth. She is miserable.

I got bit by something on the face. I am not sure what on earth it was/is, but it hurts real bad and looks terrible. I am certain everyone that sees it will think Mt. Everest relocated itself in the form of my face tomorrow and mistaken it for the biggest zit of all time, but really, something like this would have festered for days to have been this big...and it happened in a moment. I think while all of our windows were opened last night...

Oh, man, I hear...silence. Finally. Just maybe, just maybe...I might get some rest...much needed rest...I can't wait. If only my body didn't have 5 glasses of McAlister's sweet tea in it, I am sure I'd be there in a flash...

I hope Creighton is feeling better. Teething sucks! I didn't know she was still missing anything but her 2 year molars. I'm so out of it these days!

Peanut is teething and its awful... I wish this stage would hurry up. Also, I can't imagine getting up at 3 am to watch a movie!!!

I'm trying to make myself one of those people who can just function normally on little sleep. But I'm not sure it's possible to do that. But I'm gonna try! My dream is that when Parker sleeps through the night consistently, I will still get up early, before everyone in my house wakes up. I'm jealous of my friends who can do that and still be able to function cheerfully throughout the day. Without lots of caffeine to fuel them. What do you think it would take to train ourselves to need less sleep? Is it possible that it could be within out reach??

"within OUR reach" is what I meant, obviously.
