11:12am

That is what time it is right now. I am sitting here in my pj's after just taking a morning nap with Peanut. Last night was terrible sleep wise. I fell asleep around 10:45pm and the phone rang at 12am. I hit the button to make it stop and then there was a voicemail. I hit the button again so it wouldn't continue to beep. About a minute later the phone started ringing again. I decided that I should probably answer it because it could be something big. It was one of our towns dispatchers calling to tell us that a cop drove by our house and the garage was open and that we might want to shut it so that we didn't get robbed. We have all the kids outside toys in there along with all J's outside toys/tools! We always shut the garage so it was strange. J even said I thought I shut it. The neat thing is that the dispatcher is one of our friends and we go to church together. So this morning when I listened to the message it said, "Hey Tonya, this is Ryan H___ there is a police outside your house and your garage door is open. I will try calling back in a minute." I'm guessing that he heard our address come out and took it upon himself to contact us. We don't have a landline only cell phones. We are blessed to have such great people looking out for us and our family. Well J got home around 8pm last night and the call came at midnight so it was open for 4 hours. I had a hard time falling back to sleep because my mind started racing about what could of been taken and we'll see in the morning and on and on. Oy. I did end up falling asleep at some point only to be woken up by Peanut at 2 something in the morning. I was going to just put her back in bed but when I picked her up I noticed she still had a fever. She had a 100.1 temp when she went to sleep. I think it is teething related because she is tearing up her hands by constintantly biting them. I ended up bringing her into our bed and nursing her when she was done she was so restless and was kicking me in the side I couldn't fall asleep. Back to her bed she went. She didn't cry she just went right to sleep! Then about 4:30am she got up and starting walking around our room calling Ma. J put her back in bed and she didn't like that. By this time I wasn't feeling the greatest so I went and slept on the couch for the last few hours of night. Got up, got kids ready took them to school in my pj's and Peanut's came home and we both went back to sleep at about 9am until 11am. I guess the laundry is going to have to wait until this afternoon...but I'm not sure if I'll be able to get her back to sleep!

We are constantly double checking the garage door! So nice to know that someone would call to let you know it was open. Hopefully you'll get more sleep tonight!
