CD20: Spent

I've been step-parenting two teenage boys all week, which is a ton of fun but also super exhausting. I've been staying up late hanging out with the guys and building memories, so I haven't been sleeping more than 5 or 6 hours a night. I'm taking them on outings and visiting their grandmother while R works upstairs. Feeding them, making sure they have a good visit, straightening up after everybody, and still trying to fit in RE appointments plus, oh yeah, work...

I'm exhausted.

How lame, right? I finally get to a place where I feel like the boys and I are really connecting and I'm too tired to enjoy it!

One more afternoon, one more night, one more morning. I've promised them an apple pie tonight and french toast before they hit the road tomorrow.

And then, I will sleep until Little K comes home on Sunday.


On the Clomid front, I had my first experience with hot flashes last night. YUCK! So far, though, everything else is maintaining. I've got a touch of a headache forming but attribute that to the yucky weather today.

Please accept my apologies for slacking on the comments this week. These boys have turned me into a zombie!


  1. I'm glad you are having a great visit with the boys. I guess you better get used to the sleep deprivation for when you have a baby!

  2. I still detest clomid and thinking about it brings on a sympathy headache. Well okay I woke up with a headache but clomid does suck. Hoping you get lots of follicles.

  3. Glad you are having a great visit! You are not lame, you must be exhausted! Praying for more energy

  4. Ah yes, the night sweats. I remember those, except mine were more like night the point where my sheets were soaked through to the mattress cover. Well, you won't be on it for long, and the side effects will subside, so hang in there! Not much longer now!

  5. I'm so glad to hear you're having a good visit and bonding with the boys. Everyone says that parenting is the hardest job there is, but I think step-parenting would be harder. I admire you for making the effort when so many really don't.

  6. Those hot flashes are the WORST. I could hardly sleep at all during my last clomid cycle. I was on a bigger dose for a longer amount of time though, so hopefully yours won't be as long-lasting.
