MIA

Uhh, I've been such a bad blogger lately...and I don't know if it's going to get better any time soon! It's not like things haven't been exciting or busy around here, ok, so yeah, they really haven't, but I also just haven't felt like writing. In fact, I just made Ryan leave the room and watch TV in the bedroom in order to force myself to write a post since it's almost been a week now!! Not a good way to start off the new year...

So anyway, for the 23 of you that read this, I'll quickly recap the pretty much boring start of our 2010....and some reasons why I've neglected the blog (mainly due to lack of sleep and/or anything interesting to blog about):

-After New Years, Ryan and I both came down with some sort of stomach bug. Mine hit in the middle of the night and his the following morning. Therefore, I had to take care of a rambunctious 14 month old on NO sleep and a queasy stomach all day while Ryan was in bed all morning going through the unpleasantries I had experienced just a few hours prior. It was NOT a good weekend....and was just the beginning of our constant battle with little sleep. FYI-Austin did NOT get sick, thank the LORD! It must have been something we ate.

-However, 4 of Austin's molars ALL decided to come in that next week causing mommy and baby to have some really rough nights and several LONG days.

-The next Saturday we finally took the Christmas decorations down from outside the house so as to not scream to the entire neighborhood how tired and lazy we were. I took down the decorations inside the house except for the Christmas tree. They are still sitting on our dining room table waiting to go upstairs and back into the attic. We're shooting for this weekend...

-Sunday was Aaron's baby shower and I spent the afternoon in Anderson leaving Ryan in control of the munchkin. Of course, Austin decided to take the longest nap in the history of napping while I was away. His teething pain finally subsided enough to let him catch up on a little of that lost sleep. Just my luck I was gone the entire time!! Oh...what I could have done with those 4 glorious hours....

-The next week was spent recovering from sleep deprivation...or at least attempting to. A late basketball game, a new Wii game, the return of our favorite TV shows and a super late date night didn't help matters too much...

-Speaking of our date night, Friday Ryan and I went to dinner at our favorite Italian restaurant (Giovanni's...yummm!) and then to see Avatar 3-D. We REALLY needed it and had a great time. We arrived home after 1am to find Grandma rocking a screaming baby back to sleep. Oh no, not again....

-Austin slept soundly the rest of the night, but woke up extra early Saturday with horrible congestion, watery eyes and a terribly runny nose. Hey, I knew we couldn't escape the entire cold & flu season without a little something...but good grief...right after a horrible week of teething!? The poor little guy was pitiful all weekend and it broke our hearts. He couldn't breathe out of his nose due to the congestion, which means he couldn't suck on his paci to go to sleep, which made for a few more restless nights.

-We took down the Christmas tree on Saturday. When your toddler is no longer interested in the bows, branches and tons of dangling ornaments...you know it's been there way too long. It had a good run. If 2011 starts off anything like 2010...it just may stay up until Valentine's Day next year!

-This week has been better. Not great, but better. Ryan had to work Sunday which I LOATHE. I got bit by the nesting bug Monday and redecorated our kitchen and removed 3 garbage bags of old shampoos, soaps, deodorants, toothbrushes and other random toiletries from our bathroom and finally got things organized in there. Austin's cold has cleared up nicely and he had a great well-baby visit on Tuesday (blog post to come soon). Looks like we've now made it through Wednesday! So, bring on the weekend!!
