Lola woke up at 4 this morning, apparently a bad dream. I tried everything to get her to go back to sleep either in her bed or mine, but the only thing that worked was to go out to the living room with her, turn on a show with the volume down low, and lay on the couch with her on top of me, and she went to sleep that way. I, however, could not go to sleep. I laid there until the alarm clock went off. I yawned my way through the day.
Tonight I am trying to get some things done around here — and I am trying to come up with a plan to get things done the night before work so we don’t have to rush around to get out of the door on time, and maybe even be able to sleep a bit more.
Lola seems to be enjoying daycare. She gets upset when we first leave but she seems really enthusiastic about it otherwise. Again, I just need to come to terms with myself, because she’s apparently all for it. I just miss her, and I struggle to get through every day interacting with others, when I would just as soon not. I also hate getting up in the mornings, I’m always so damned tired.
Work is going ok. I am getting along good with everyone, and taking on more tasks. I am hoping that they will start giving me enough to keep busy all day without walking around asking people “Do you have anything for me to do?” I hate doing that because it makes me feel like I have no worth. I need to start packing lunch because it’s too cold to go out on the streets to buy lunch so I’ve been buying it in the cafe on the ground floor and it is EXPENSIVE!!! Delicious, but expensive.
Oh, another bummer is that I don’t get to see Hubby very much now. He doesn’t get home from work until after 8, and that is if he doesn’t have overtime. Last night he didn’t get home until midnight, and I don’t even think I woke up when he came in. I leave way before he needs to be up.
A good thing though is that as long as traffic moves smoothly, I leave work at 4:30 and can be walking into the daycare to get Lola by 4:50. This makes me happy. It’s just a few minutes but I’ll take all the minutes I can grab with my little one!
Princess is doing great – homework galore – but doing well. She is participating in Drama Club again this year and they are putting on a play in a week or so — she is in Little Women. She has all of a sudden gotten really interested in sketching and designing fashion. She’s done a few drawings that are actually very impressive.
Well that’s the update. Nothing earth shattering. I’m looking forward to getting my first paycheck. It will come in handy-as I have done no Christmas shopping as of yet for the kids. Wish me luck shopping this weekend.
Lastly I shared with my Hubby a wonderful quote, that we both feel describes our relationship perfectly…
“Love is Friendship That Catches Fire.”
Isn’t that beautiful?
