Apparently, I haven’t blogged since October 3rd. It really hasn’t seemed that long ago to me, but I guess time has been cruising on by.
We’re heading into one of my favorite times of year (Thanksgiving –> Christmas), but I’m not so excited about it this year. I think it’s largely because I’m tired. Wiped. Exhausted. Frustrated.
The Boy refuses to sleep in his crib. He was fine in his bassinet, then his pack & play, but as soon as we tried the crib, he revolted. As I posted back in September, I haven’t had the heart to let him cry it out (when I try, he cries for OVER AN HOUR and it breaks my heart), so we spend each night in the recliner. I know that this won’t last forever, and that there will come a day when I will miss being able to cuddle with him, but…I miss my bed. I miss sleeping next to my husband (though I don’t miss his snoring). I’ve decided that I’m going to keep things the way they are until the semester is over, and then devote my winter break to getting my son to sleep in his crib. I hope it works.
In other news, I’ve gone back to Weight Watchers. It’s been almost a month, and I’ve lost about 5 pounds. I’m totally half-assing it, on-program some days and off-program on other days. My main problems are that I don’t plan my days very well, and I’m so focused on taking care of everyone else that I forget to eat and end up overdoing it at night. Not good. I’m so tired of being overweight, though. I’d like to be healthy when I turn 40 in 5 years.
That’s all for now. I have papers to grade while The Boy is at my sister’s. Good times.
