I Thought The Weekend Was The Relaxing Part Of The Week...

Apparently I was misinformed.

Olivia is sick. She's been projectile vomiting her entire bottle contents all day. We've tried to give her Pedialyte, but she seems to throw that up as well. She's also got a bit of a temperature. Tomorrow at 8am, we have a doctors appointment for her.

Emma won't sleep. She had no problem napping today while my mom was here, but as soon as Grammie left (that's what we call my mom) she decided she was going to protest by refusing to sleep. We fed her at 9pm, it's now a little after 11pm and she is still awake. Anytime I try to get her to go to sleep, she cries. Luckily, Olivia isn't having a problem going to sleep.

They've been like this all weekend, except last night when Emma was also puking up her entire bottle. She threw up so bad in her crib, it hit the wall...twice! We went through four separate crib sheets yesterday!

I swear, I don't think I'll ever sleep again.

You know I love you all, but anyone who complains about having one child can kiss my ass. If we had had triplets, I think I might be dead.

Oh, and I'm also having trouble with my kidneys. I have been in so much pain the past two days. It's not quite to the point it was last time when I had to go to the hospital, but I can tell its only a matter of days before it gets to that point. I've tried to take motrin to see if that helps like it did last time, but so far nothing. I hope it gets better, I can't afford to be taken out of commission right now with a one child who's sick and one child who's an insomniac.

It’s Tearin’ Up My Heart

I've got a busy next couple of days ahead of me.

Tomorrow (well, I guess technically that would be today, but whatever...) I have a 9am WIC meeting, the first meeting that I have to take the girls to. It's also my very first outing with just me and the girls. We'll see how well that goes. Then at 3pm, we have a meeting with Tallahassee Pediatrics to get our medicaid paperwork in order for the girls. Gotta love free medical. I was not looking forward to having to pay the NICU bill for Olivia, 13 days stay would be an assload of money!

Friday Deidre is coming over for the weekend. It's the first time she's going to get to see the girls. So, far all we've got planned to do while she's here is stay in our pajamas and watch crappy "horror" movies 'til its time to go to bed. Olivia has a doctors appointment at 1:30pm also. Nothing's wrong, it's just her weekly checkup. She won't have to do that anymore once she reaches 6lbs, which I'm pretty sure she's done. Last Friday Emma weighed in at 6lbs 6oz and Olivia weighed in at 5lbs 12oz. They've been gaining at least an ounce a day, so I'm pretty confidant that she's made her goal.

Saturday we're going to have some of Ricky's friend over for video games again like we did last Saturday. I am so ready to pwn them in Mario Kart again, and maybe one or two people in Mortal Kombat. I'm getting pretty good with one particular character.

I actually don't think we have anything going on Sunday, so it will be nice to have a full day of laziness this weekend with nowhere we have to go.

Apparently The Crazies Come Out Earlier Now

Picture it: Tallahassee, yesterday.
I'm up all night with the girls. I lay down to go to sleep a little before 7am. At 7am I get a phone call from a "unknown caller." Since that is what it says when Ricky calls from work, I answer. On the other end is a girl who said her name was "Amber". And she is looking for Britney Marie. I tell her that's me. Then she asks me if I own a gold car. Naturally, I tell her that I do not. Then she proceeds to question me. Turns out, a gold car was parked in front of her boyfriends house over the weekend, and somehow paperwork (she never said what kind of paperwork) with my name was inside. Now, I am the only Britney Marie in the state of why the hell is my name in this car. Then she keeps asking me questions. Finally, we manage to get on the subject of other [in-laws name]. I tell her the only other one I know of is my sister in law. She then proceeds to tell me my mother in laws name and ask if that's Gert's mom. And it is. After a few minutes of this I tell her I'm not the one she's looking for and I'm sorry I can't be of more help. She says thanks and hangs up on me.

Now what I want to know is 1) how did she get my unlisted number, b) how does she know my mother in law, and 3) why is my name on some paperwork in a car I've never been in!

After that ordeal I was quite awake again. So I stayed up and watched a movie. Then after I fed the girls Emma spit up so violently it came shooting out her nose, twice. So I had to run around the house to find the booger sucker so I could suck out all the formula from her nose, so my daughter could breathe, twice. (Yes, I lost the booger sucker after using it the first time.) Then Olivia decided to do that as well, twice. And, not only did it come shooting out Olivia's nose, she also decided to projectile vomit across the nursery. There are still spots on the floor. Ugh.

On a better note, one of Ricky's co-workers came over for about four hours and we all played video games. I kicked his ass at Mario Kart and Mortal Kombat. Yeah, that's right! LoL!

I'd love to stay and chat some more, but I've got a hungry baby that has decided not to let me type anymore. I can't wait for the days when they're sleeping through the night. Please, oh please, oh please, come quickly!
