It's Me

Can I just talk?

It's one of those days. I just need someone to talk to. A place to vent it all out. Hope you don't mind.

I'm not super good with change. Transitions are not my forte. I love getting in a groove and riding it for as long as possible. When things change, it takes me awhile to feel confident and at peace again.

So, we've been dealing with my husband's work schedule shifting up an hour. He now leaves for work around 6:45am. And is home just before 4pm. Which can be nice. But is different. We have more time to waste to schedule very carefully in the evening, and less time for exercise/showers/leisurely conversations in the morning.

Pair that up with Ezra waking at 5:30am.

We were getting things figured out. I had a pretty good schedule going on for the last week or two.

Then yesterday Peter couldn't fall asleep at nap-time. He struggled a LOT. I struggled a lot. I don't think he's quite ready to give it up. But I'm pretty tired of the 9, sometimes 9:30 bedtime when he does have a good afternoon nap.

Anyway. We'll see what he does today. I put him in his room with books and puzzles for QUIET time. We'll see if he sleeps.

What I'm not excited about is never knowing what to expect. Never being able to plan an evening until we see whether it's a nap day or not a nap day. Early bedtime or late.

And it's really too bad that it's boy's night tonight, cause I could use a really long time out.

OK. I think I'm done.
