I’m going back to basics because I am so not cohesive enough to put together a real post. So Thought Vomit Thursday is making it’s comeback.
1 – I am busy. So so busy. Like my phone is ringing off the hook all day. If it’s not phone calls, it’s text messages, and somewhere in and around all the work I am actually doing, I have to respond to these calls or texts. I kindof understood my husband’s reasoning for working all the time before, but now I really get it. Some shit you just can’t let slide or lots and lots of people will be let down. It’s exhausting. I feel so lucky that I get to work from home. It’s a nice break when I need it, but any time I want to I can come out of my office and squeeze my babies. Or make a pot roast.
2 – Tiny Dancer and I are going to battle over sleep. I started the sleep training a week or so ago and it’s going really great actually. Until about 4:30 am. I put her to bed somewhere between 9:30 and 10:30. Sometimes she will go right down at 9:30 and other times, it takes a little more work. She is pretty consistently sleeping until 4:30 am (SCORE!) Sometimes she wakes up earlier, but I can pretty much coax her back to sleep with a pacifier until 4:30. Which is basically against all sleep training rules, but at 2 am, I don’t give a fuck. At 4:30 she is fucking over it and she yells out to FEED. ME. NOW. I am still breastfeeding, so I get up and rock her and feed her. She falls back to sleep and I lie her back down just in time for her to start barfing and farting all over. She’s got some serious middle of the night tummy issues and it makes 4:30-7:30 not very pleasant. Fortunately I’ve been drinking coffee every day (and vodka every night) so I don’t mind so much. A couple of weeks from now you might see me on the news though.
3 – I am the worst blog friend ever. I haven’t made it to very many of your blogs to comment, encourage or support. Please know I check blogs every day, but am in just such a whirlwind of shit that I just haven’t commented. I do read though and will be back someday to make you feel my love. Usually when I read blogs it is when I’m nursing or driving (just kidding) and typing a comment on my phone with one finger is bull shit.
4 – I got shiny new birth control. More on that tomorrow. I hope.
