Woke up at 12am with Amor scolding me for not having gotten up earlier when he woke me to pump. I guess I’d slept through that. I slept until 3 and pumped again, took over with the babies, cuddled them one by one, couldn’t stay awake though, despite coffee and Adderall. I figured that since we weren’t having the yard sale anyway, I’d stop pushing so hard to sort junk, give myself a break. I did need to pack Mica’s stuff for the beach, but she and Amor were asleep in her room. I’ve been so tired lately, I started thinking, “Am I just not manic anymore, or is this a side-effect of the Seroquel?” It does make me very drowsy. I’ve also had a lot of back pain since falling while rushing to see the “blood moon” with Mica while still kind of out-of-it that morning.
Sarah and I went to our mommies’ group at 10. Asher was hungry by the time it was over and it usually takes Sarah a while to breastfeed him, so I lugged the babies downstairs. But, to my surprise, by the time we got down, he was ready to go, so I re-lugged them back upstairs and packed up the car. We arrived home at the time Amor would usually be leaving. But Amor had planned to skip soccer to help sort for the yard sale and I assumed he would be okay sticking to that because packing (for Mica’s weekend trip) is a big chore and they planned to leave at 3pm. When he plays, he returns at 2:15 and then has to take a shower. He was not happy to skip. Starla was here offering to help. We were out of milk and had WIC vouchers. The babies’ laundry had piled up. Mica arrived at about 1pm and helped me pack. I calmly explained to Amor that Starla could help with the babies, if he’d just get the Wic stuff, that would be such a big help. He told me I could do that after I packed and got Mica off. I told him that puts more stress on me and we have help right now, we won’t later! He went. After everyone left (Sars and Joe included), it was just Amor and I and the babies in the house. He was pouty. So I offered to spend some quality time with him and let him choose a Netflix show to watch. I fell asleep nursing Brooksies during the third rerun episode of “My name is Earl.”

Yes, it sounds like it was quite a week, even for Supermommy! 😉 I bet the Seroquel is adding to your fatigue. I forgot if you mentioned how much you take? I take 50 mg at night but used to take 100mg. There is a BIG difference between the two – I’m way less groggy at 50mg. At 100 mg I’d drink 4 huge cups of coffee but it still didn’t help. I could never take it during the daytime or else I’d have to lay down.
ADORABLE photo by the way!!!!! take care and hope you get to take it easy this weekend at some point for at least a little while because YOU DESERVE IT!!!!!!

50 mg is all I can manage. Thanks for the compliment on the pic. I’ve determined to have a more peaceful weekend but um, it’s not working out! As I was reading your post about the freaky waterfall, my six year old announced her tummy doesn’t feel so good. As I’m typing this reply, well, can’t think gotta go…
