It’s only Monday and it’s already been an emotional week for Tyler and I.
Ok, more for me than the little man probably. Today was Tyler’s first day at a new daycare place - I had to move him because we are moving this week and it’s too far for me to drive him to the old sitter from my new home. So after an emotional goodbye to Stephanie and her family, we joined the nice little family at Marsha’s Toddler Turf in Schaumburg.
We arrived there about 7:30am this morning and Tyler clearly didn’t want Mom to leave. He looked around suspiciously and clung onto my jacket, giving out as many dirty looks as a 2 year old can give.
I made him stand up so I could take his coat off and kissed him goodbye. I had to make it quick. The longer I stayed there the less likely I was to let him stay. I had already contemplated saying goodbye to my career and taking my baby back home about 16 times in the first 5 minutes.
But Tyler is a tough kid - and very friendly - so I knew that he would be ok. I left as quick as I could and cried on the way to work. This is worse on me than him!
I came back from lunch to find some great pictures sent over to me from Marsha - confirming that he is fine and happy.
Now we just have to move and everything MIGHT finally calm down!
This Saturday Jason and I adopted a puppy! She’s 1/2 huskie, 1/2 lab - 7 weeks old with BLUE eyes! We named her Chloe. She is a bundle full of energy and such a sweetheart.
I just upgraded to WP2.0 and HOLY COW. It took all of 5 minutes - however long it took to upload the files. SO easy, what a great application.
I’m really glad this worked easily, thumbs up to WordPress!
I need a vacation. In the next few months we are going to try and plan a road trip somewhere for a long weekend. I need to get away, even if it’s only for a few days.
Any suggestions? I would really love to get out to Colorado and really look around. I would love to live there eventually.
I want something with decent weather (it will be summer anyway), fun touristy things to do and GREAT food is a must. A bed and breakfast or nice hotel would be great.
If any of you (Sara) have ideas, let me know.
Is totally getting the best of me lately. In a bad way. I have so much on my plate right now that I’m finding my life has become almost unmanageable. I don’t deal with stress very well at all and the more things pile up, the more I just shut down. But it’s really starting to affect me in a very negative way, so I’ve got to stop. I need to learn some mechanisms to deal with all of this.
I know that it has a lot to do with scheduling and I’m hoping that will all be worked out very soon. But I think there are other, bigger, under-lying issues that I should probably start dealing with.
And of course, when one thing gets crazy, everything seems to come up and I feel like there are huge weights on my shoulders and I’m just trying to get through.
My boyfriend and I have been on this crazy schedule for the past few months and it’s really hard. We see each other about 3-4 days a week at best, which is a huge change for us. We’ve been pretty unseperable for over a year and we are use to seeing each other about 6 days a week. Our current schedule isn’t necessarily BAD - I find that I AM getting more done around the house (haha), but I would much rather be spending the time with him. His schedule will be changing a bit next week - back to some sort of normalcy - but of course there are other situations arising (school for me, band for him) that I fear will keep us at the same pace we are now. And it is quite an adjustment.
We are also moving in 2 weeks, my school starts in 2 weeks, Tyler is switching daycares (which is probably more emotional for me than him), I’m having issues with his father, MY father just moved 3 hours away and it’s been a hard realization that I will probably never return to my hometown for anything, let alone see my dad anytime soon. That is just a shortlist of things that have me stressed. I realize they are all things that will be dealt with and straightened out in time - it’s just ALL at the same time that is freaking me out.
So, enough bitching here from me. I do enough of that. I have to go talk to my Admissions lady and try to register for class, get my books, I need to make an eye doctor appt, dentist appt, and get my brakes fixed and oil changed.
Hopefully all before I move.
Oh did I mention I have to pack? And meet with a new sitter this weekend? And take placement tests for school?
Ok, I’m out.
