random thoughts

~i spoke too soon. i now have 2 student appointments today. well at least the day will pass quicker (hopefully)

~E and I were back to co-sleeping last night. the best part was going to bed at 9:00ish, I slept well and it was nice and quiet with no crying. my plan for now is to try to get E off the juice but it will be challenging considering that it's right there in his face. He woke 3x last night and I was only successful one time in getting him back to sleep w/o b**by.

~i left the house w/o breakfast today, which meant I HAD to go to ChickFila. While normally this would be very exciting for me. I really DIDN'T want/need to spend the money (or the calories) and I was so frustrated with myself for forgetting my regular yogurt & WW Blueberry Muffin.

~i never do anything after work it seems. i dread going home and then it's even worse that I have nothing to do. i miss playing softball, but if i try to start back up now, that means O has to either stay home with E or come with and bring E. i don't want to ask him for anything. i am disconnecting more and more everyday. this whole weaning situation was sort of the straw that broke the camel's back (at least in my eyes). i think i'll do my 2.5 mile walk with E tonight just to get out of the house. i'm totally NOT motivated to do it, but it's better than being bored @ home I suppose. and i need to lose weight.

~on Thursday E and I are finally going to play @ his girlfriend's house. from there we go to E's 15 month check up. shots too -boo!! then i get my pedicure that night...hooray for that.

~Friday morning, my dad, E and I are headed to VA. the sooner the better. looking SO forward to getting away. the best part, my step-sisters house does not get cell service very well. guess who I won't have to talk to? Yay. a complete break. desperately needed.

~yesterday in the mail i received 139 pages from my lawyer which came from the defendant. it was an interesting read and not to my surprise, I found a nice little white lie in there. i'm really running out of patience with these a-holes. wish this thing would just settle.

~and i'm still contemplating just going out and buying that Canon SLR I want, or the Bose Speaker, or the Flip Video Recorder....sometimes I wish I wasn't so freakin' practical.

~and Thank You to Novelista Barista for the Funky Blog award.

I am glad you have Thursday's "necessary evil" sandwiched between two fun things. Hooray for your weekend away! I hope you get a chance to recharge a bit.

I hate it, but sometimes secretly like it when I forget my breakfast and have to buy something...what better excuse is there??

Glad you had a good night's rest!

Krystyn said...

I hope this trip is the break you need.

I forgot..does E take a paci? Just curious..I'm guessing no.

If I were closer, I would totally take over for a night and let you leave...that way you can't give it (if that's what you want, of course).

Krystyn-no paci for E. We tried, but he was never interested. Good thing? I'm not sure.

Thanks for the offer of night-duty with E. That would be awesome. Boo for not being closer. Of course, I am heading to ATL next week (if it doesn't rain). LOL!!

Vanessa said...

I have to say, I can see why you'd be loosing patience at this point. A much needed break will hopefully grant new perspective.

Camera wise? I got the Nikon D40 and absolutely ADORE it!

Thanks for your comment on my blog!!! I am so sorry to read you've been having such a tough time recently. It sounds like this trip is exactly what you need. I wish I knew exactly what to say to make it better - really hope things get better for you! Take good care of yourself and your littl'un.

Omg me and u both need a vacation just to go away!! Im tired of this routine.. I need to switch lanes.. I'm trying to get into grad school.. not an easy task.. Im practically begging..

Beth said...

I splurged on a Canon EOS Rebel XS and I love it. I've already taken over 4000 pictures since the end of December. Buy it! You will get some awesome photos of the kids. And that is a practical idea.

Lisa Michelle said...

I am hoping that absence will make the heart grow fonder...I haven't been around in a while. Sorry for not commenting..I am still reading your blog however! Why not splurge on a camera that will keep forever memories? Duh! But I feel you if you want to wait and get the camera when you have the cash. We live in a society full of debt and it sucks to get out of it. Do what your heart tells you to do!
