{A Really Late Night = A Really Tired Mom}

Monday, December 1, 2008
On Saturday night there was another Imhoff wedding. Ryan's Uncle Thom got married here in Jeff City, and of course Ryan, Braeden & I attended. My mom even decided to come which was nice to have her there, and spend a little extra family time with her since I wasn't home for Thanksgiving.

Needless to day, right after dinner was served, Braeden got fussy, and when that happens, you just know it's time to leave. Since my mom was there, she offered to take Braeden home, give him a bath, and put him to bed ... so nice of her! So that ment that I stayed at the reception with Ryan and his family. It was a good night for the most part, people were dancing, the band was playing some good music, I got to meet some people that I have never met before, and it was a chance for Ryan to really let loose. Something he hadn't done in a long time.

The end of the night was winding down (so I thought) and I started to get tired, I just needed to sleep. Just because I didn't have my son, didn't mean that I can stay out late and get crazy, Braeden still wakes up early in the morning, and it's never a good day if I am out of it! So I kept telling Ryan I was ready to go ... and his response ... "after I finsih this beer." Okay, finally I had ENOUGH and just simply left. Yes, I left my husband at the reception with no ride home ... but his wife was tired, and I gave him MANY warnings!! When I finally left ... this was what was taking place ...

The weather had really dropped, and it was supposed to snow during the night, so all I wanted to do was to curl up in my bed with my electric blanket, and just fall asleep ....UMMM, yeah right! Turns out, my husband decided after many drinks that he was ready to come home, and reality finally set in that he did not have a ride. So what does he do? At 1:00 AM he calls me ... will you PLEASE come and pick me up?? .... Okay, this would mean that I have to get out of my warm bed, put on warm clothes, WAKE MY SLEEPING SON UP, and put him in the car.

Yes, I am the best wife ... I know this. I picked Ryan up and when we got home, I got him to take a picture of Braeden and him before he put Braeden back to sleep ... you can't help by smile. All and all it was a good night, but the next day, everyone was exhausted!!
