I'm seriously losing my mind

This has been a crazy week. My 2 yr old got sick with a nasty cold Friday and is just now feeling normal. And he kindly passed it on to the baby and I. Luckily the baby didn't get hit hard, just a little stuffed up, but I've been miserable. We went to my husband's niece's baby blessing Sunday and it was fun. And then Sunday night my grandmother passed away. I found out Monday morning from my brother. So Tuesday night we drove to my family's house and spent the night, the funeral was Wednesday morning. The service was nice, a short graveside service. I was volunteered for the closing prayer and barely got through it cuz I was crying. I wasn't close to my grandma because she had some mental problems and wasn't always the nicest person, but she'd still been part of my life since I was born. We spent the day with the family and drove home that night. I hate travelling far. It's almost a 3 hr drive and I have to be squished up in the passenger seat to make room for the baby's carseat behind me, so I was uncomfortable plus my husband likes to have the a/c going even if I'm freezing cold. So I was cold, tired, sick and squished for 3 hrs, with baby crying the last 1/2hr. Not fun. I just really need to sleep for a week or so. Baby's sleeping hasn't gotten any better, he still wakes up a billion times a night. The lack of sleep is really wearing on me. I'm cranky all the time and have no energy to do anything. My mind is starting to slip away from me.

What a week you've had! So sorry to hear about your grandmother's passing. And I'm sorry that your baby's keeping you up at night! That is so tough -- getting up time after time after time. It really can wear on you. Hope you and your family get to be feeling 100% soon.

Grrr... Blogger is acting up tonight...
Kara, I'm sorry to hear about your grandmother. I'm glad that you were at least able to make it to her funeral (even tho' the trip to/from it wasn't fun). I wasn't able to make it to my last two grandparent's funerals, and I really wish I had.
I hope that you all are feeling better pretty quick here!
