I am tired! Exhausted, actually.
Yep, I get to stay home all day with Ryder. Every day. I love it, I do, but that doesn't mean, I am not tired. I know, I know, I don't have to "go" to work. I could go to bed earlier, like at 8am, when he does. I could nap when he does (does he nap???) and blah, blah, blah, but, I don't. And I am tired.
I get up at least once, more often than not, twice in the night with him (hey, you can't maintain a figure like he's got without getting up in the night to eat,) I choose to walk while he naps in the stroller, or clean, or cook or fold laundry while he naps in his crib and I choose to stay up late watching crap on TV, blogging, editing pictures or talking on the phone. I know it's my own fault. I am tired. I never thought I would be. I mean I am one of those people who can normally function quite well on little sleep. I am a bit of an energizer bunny, going, going, going all the time, but the lack of sleep, after almost 7 months has caught up with me!! Fatigue is starting to mess with me. This morning, I woke up convinced it was the 15th of October. It's actually the 16th. This, I found out, after dragging both Mom and Ryder at 9:30am, 30 minutes west of Calgary to a Used Toy and Clothing Sale that was actually YESTERDAY, Oct.15th!! Ummm, what??? Am I really that messed up??? Apparently!!
Mom? Mom's been known to get her dates confused, or show up at things on the wrong day, but not me. NOT ME!!! That being said, I am glad Mom was with me. She has a great attitude about these kinds of mix ups. She just stood in the hall where we thought the sale was, staring at all the dressed up people who'd shown up to worship there, today. Sunday. The day that hall is transformed from a place where Toy sales are held, into a place of worship and laughed!! I think she was just glad it was me who had messed up the date and not her for once! Ha ha!!! I figured that all was not lost and that we could still make something productive come out of the drive. We could take the long way home and stop by the Farmer's Market..which we did, but, duh. The outdoor Farmer's Markets all end at the end of September as it gets too cold around here come October.
So, that ended up being a bust too...good thing Mom is a good sport! :)
The morning wasn't a total bust. We did drive by Dirt Face at the Farm where we stopped in to say hi. Good thing he is always there, nomatter what day or season!
I am tired and I really want to Blog, but I am going to go to bed. I will post a couple of fun pics just cause it's more fun to read Blogs with pics and then I am going to bed......apparently I need sleep....

Mom, Ryder and Scout, hangin' out.

Ryder in his car seat. He just looked so damn cute!

We will all be happy when Ryder is big enough to "chuck" the ball for Scout by himself!
