Last night started fine. Faith went to sleep at 7pm without a problem and Jeff and I went to bed without hearing a peep from her. Then at 1:30 all hell broke loose. I changed her diaper and gave her some more Tylenol and she went back to sleep for about 20 minutes (meaning I had just fallen back asleep) before she was up again. Jeff was able to eventually calm her down, but it was almost 4am before all was quiet again. I'm blaming teething, but it could be that she's upset that the news cycle is ignoring the situation in Libya, who knows with that baby. :)
So I feel like a zombie today. I know I used to live like this all the time, but I don't really remember that time well, mostly because I was so tired.
It's days like today that I wished I drank coffee. I used to drink coffee back in college, but then in my last year of graduate school, I started to get a lot of stomach troubles and severe heartburn. It turned out that I had a ton of H. Pylori bacteria in my stomach lining and I had an ucler too. If anyone reading this has really bad heartburn, ask your doctor for the H. Pylori test!
Anyway, to get my ulcer to heal I had to give up caffeine. I've never been able to add it back because now it makes me feel queasy if I have too much caffeine. So, that's the long story as to why I don't just drink some coffee on days like today. A Diet Coke with caffeine is enough for me to feel buzzed! Plus, my husband drinks coffee and from what I can tell, it doesn't help much on days like today. I think it helps him for an hour or two and then he crashes again. I still wish I could have that hour or two of feeling alert!
Are you a coffee drinker?
