I Want My Weekend Back!

I want it back, I want it, I want it, I want it!
Here's a short hi-light list from my weekend:

FRIDAY
Took a nap
Babysitter
Cafe Rio burrito (shared)
About 70% success rate at the driving range (ie, connecting with the ball - a personal best)
Red Mango
So many laughs

SATURDAY
Cafe Rio salad (NOT shared) sans children
Long nap time (for the kids AND me)
Pizza Bender (also sans children) with just the girls
Red Mango (yes, again)
More laughs
Some AWESOME news (too excited for words)
And this is where it started to turn.....

SUNDAY
Stake Conference (we stayed home because we were up all night with a sick Lo)
BBQ for my mom's bday
Reminiscing with the fam
And up all night again with Lo (she's weird - when she gets a cold, she's fine all day, no runny nose, no coughing, but can't sleep at night for more than 45 minutes at a time)
What little sleep I did try to get was ruined with a splitting headache

MONDAY
B has it in for me today
I fully believe she's taking advantage of a very sleep deprived mother
I've been the screaming mom today
You know, the part of you that comes out and is hoping none of the neighbors are outside and all of the windows are closed
Lunch consisted of refusing a sippy cup
Spilling apple juice all over the counter
Continuing to play in it while I yelled and cleaned it up
Then immediately threw rest of lunch as far as it would go
Resulting in me screaming some more and crying
What?  SO NOT FAIR!
I want my weekend back, with my behaved children and my naps and my Red Mango!
Can someone please arrange that for me?
Pretty please, with a cherry on top?
