Well yesterday I reached total and utter exhaustion before I even realized what was happening. After Kirtis got home from work and reminded me that he would have to work on a paper all night long and would have class most of the day Saturday, I just about lost a few screws. I mean I knew this all along, but somehow the realization was more than I could take. I handled it very maturely. Ate dinner by myself, locked in my room. Got really mad and went for a walk with Jackson at 6pm in 98 degree heat. All in all, I think I did a great job! Okay not really. But after Kirtis realized his wife was going crazy and we got Jackson in bed (what a relief from "mommy mommy mommy mommy mommy!") I fell asleep in a chair in the living room at 8 o'clock and realized, whoa, I think I am REALLY tired. Kirtis handled the middle of the night demands for more milk, and I slept right through. I woke up today feeling like a whole new woman. The thing is next time this happens what am I supposed to do? Just drive off into the sunset? Sounds nice.
