are we going to make Rapids a day trip. It was way too much for the kids to handle. We were totally exhausted as well - even more so today since neither of the kids slept very well. I think Brennan is either sick now or he is still struggling with teething. I know kids get runny noses when they get teeth, but he has this really bad cough, too. He was up all night. I'm not even exaggerating. I think I had maybe 25 minutes of dozing off. He was screaming and Tylenol didn't help and Orajel didn't help just frustrated him more and made him even more drooly (if that's at all possible). He's having a rough day today, too. I thought we were past the worst of teething - maybe I was wrong.
The speaker/dessert night thing was fun and it was a great time for Jacob & I to get away from the kids for a little bit. I told him we should have ditched out and went on a real date :) It was nice to see people we don't get to see very often and just relax and be entertained - even if it was only an hour or so.
I've also decided I'm done making plans with certain people. It seems more often then not it doesn't work out. It's irritating that we make plans and then they can't even call us to cancel or give us an excuse, but they just don't show up and just don't return my calls. We were looking forward to having some fun, and now we're out $10 for their tickets and I guess we still had fun, but we had to sit and look stupid every time someone asked "Oh I thought so & so were coming with you?!"
So today is laundry/cleaning day. I don't know how people can do it - take care of kids and keep their house looking decent. It seems like I can do it for awhile and then I just get completely exhausted - it's like a never ending and thankless battle. No one cares when you're house is clean - the only time people notice is when it's not clean. Hopefully, Bren will take a nice long nap and hopefully I can motivate myself to end this post and get to it ...
