Ok. If you have been following my blog… It’s been about Kodiak my DeafBlind son and the issues he lives with and how it causes our life to suddenly turn on a dime! Well this post is all about ME! I hate to admit it because I usually put ME on a shelf! But this time? It is ME!
They say at times a child changes your life and life is never the same. I didn’t really feel our life changed much when Symone or Colten were born. They both slept 10 to 12 hours at night from 8:00 pm to 8:00 am beginning at about 2 weeks old. We took them everywhere and they loved life!
Then Kodiak came along and I have been seriously sleep deprived ever since. So I rarely have dreams. But when I do…I wake up either in a sweat and tears crying or panicked because something feels wrong or the dream is so real it freaks me out and as I wake up I realize it’s what we lived or what is happening. I would love a peaceful dream.
After our lovely Saturday and Sunday I was very relaxed. We went to bed early. Kodi was out!
It was snowing and I began dreaming about colors and floating things in the sky. Like the hot air balloons we blogged about 4 times on Saturday…
I then was dreaming about the sun, waves and surfing.
I was dreaming about a warm fire and watching out the window as huge soft snowflakes were falling and landing softly on the evergreen trees.
Then I was dreaming about a warm fire on the beach and suddenly I heard this very loud GRINDING sound and it felt like the ground was shaking.
All the surfers fell, the balloons crash landed, the trees fell from the weight of the snow and the warm fire on the beach blew up… These were fast flashes that’s why I remember it so clearly!!!
Then this very loud BEEP… BEEP… BEEP… BEEP… And then this even louder sound GRINDING and beeping.
It literally shook our town house and I sat straight up and grabbed the bed and yelled “WHAT WAS THAT!!!” I was throwing pillows and scrambling to free myself of bedding when I heard it again and again. I ran to Symone’s window… What? really?
I looked at my daughters iPhone and saw it was 2:30 am.
It was a skid-steer outside my daughters window plowing snow. And beeping in reverse!
Now as you already know I LOVE SNOW! But we had less than two inches.
REALLY? DID YOU REALLY HAVE TO PLOW FOR THE NEXT 3 HOURS ALL THE TOWN-HOMES IN OUR AREA?
And that obnoxious beeping!!! Can’t we shut that off in the middle of the night when NO ONE is even outside??? PLEASE!!!! HOW RUDE!!! My heart was racing!
Then if that was not bad enough! On the street outside my window… was the big snow plows going up and down the street and then sirens from either police or firetrucks!
Then just a few minutes after 5:00 am Kodi was giggling! I wanted to cry! I can’t wear ear plugs!!! Cloister phobic? Naw! Just can’t stand something in my ears and not being able to hear a kid if they needed me! Speaking of I thought Kodi would have it good in that instance… But NO it was the vibrating of our town home that woke him up!
Help! Just when I get some peaceful dreams I get very RUDLY awakened!
I’m ready to sleep now that I have vented about ME and the SLEEP issues around here!
No hard feelings to the men out there plowing away to make our streets and roads safe to drive on… Just can we keep it down a little!! 🙂
Kodi at 5:00 am!
Thanks for the lovely photos of the snow and trees… Symone. Nice photo with and iPhone!!!
