Missing Sleep, voting and SPRING has sprung!

The culprit of my missing sleep at night! Yes, she still isn't sleeping through the night. I have no clue as to why, but some of my thoughts are leading to separation anxiety. She is such a little sweetheart!

On other news today I didn't have much motivation to do anything because I woke up a mama zombie. With missing so much sleep (my other two where sleeping through the night by 6 weeks and 3 months!), waking up with a headache and it being overcast outside I just wasn't motivated to get up and at 'em. Even coffee failed me this morning! Thankfully it got sunny and warm out just before lunch so I sat outside for a few minutes getting some vitamin D with the baby!

We also have to vote for primaries. I understand it's everyone's right to recall someone, but seriously. The guy one by a landslide the first time around. Sure, he made a lot of people from the other political party mad but so what. Now, instead of voting once last year and then of course the presidential election this year. I have to take ALL THREE kids out to vote today. HASSLE anyone?!

My new favorite political sign, sarcasm entirely intended: "Recall Santa: I didn't get what I wanted this year". Amen to that. I send you an e-hug whoever coined that sign. Today we vote to get one person from each party on the ballot. Then there is another election. Then I have to go back for the presidential. What a hassle. Voting is a hassle when you have a flock of little kids to take with you.

Okay, I am done complaining about the hassle of voting with a bunch of kids now !

On a more positive note: WE HAVE ASPARAGUS!!!! I picked some last night, steamed it up and served it with dinner and it was so wonderful to have food from our own backyard again! Fresh from the backyard I should say! I checked my asparagus that I had planted earlier this spring and I have two that are growing! I'm hoping I have more plants that come up, as I planted 6 or 7 of them. My strawberries are coming up as well! Yay!!! Some of the trees are blossoming and it's just so beautiful. I hope the lilacs start blooming soon! I just love the smell of the lilacs floating through the air when I sit outside!

Time to go get dinner started... Until next time!

  1. Can you sign up for an absentee ballot and vote by mail?

    Sleep deprivation can make you nutz. Take care. I think the sunshine helps you both.

    Jealous of the asparagus. Don't think I can do that here, too cold. But it would be nice.

    Great blog. Found you from MJF site.
