Mixed Feelings

There's some weird stuff going on with me lately, and I haven't really been up to writing about it.

Never one thing in particular, just life is hitting me from all sides at once.

Today was Dad's birthday, Dad, Mom, Karen and Baba came over and had dinner here.

I've been working sick amounts of overtime at work, trying to get things done. I don't seem to be able to be catching up. We've hired a temp, and I'm hoping that we can make her a bit more permanent... at least while the one staff is off this summer. The only good thing about me working overtime is that the director is allowing me to bank my hours, so I can use them as time in lieu. She's also arranging it that we can take every third Friday as an EDO, but I'm too busy to really be able to take the time off right now.

There's lots happening, and at the same time nothing's happening.

I really want to take some time off and just stay home and scrapbook right now.

Alex has broken tooth #12. All four bottom front teeth are in. Now for the dreaded eye teeth.

She's started doing this dancing thing, which is really cute. Unfortunately she always seems to want to do it either on the change table or in the bath, which is not so good.

She reminds me so much of me now... just in her expressions and in the way she looks at me.

We used to have no problems with sleep time, but lately she's just been fighting going to bed something fierce. She likes to climb off the bed and then run around. Last night she climbed off the bed to run around, then she curled up on the floor and fell asleep. Apparently this is a phase that Jason's mom said all her kids went through. Yay. Don't wanna sleep don't wanna sleep don't wanna sleep. tired, now sleep.

At daycare, apparently she's playing with the dollhouse. She's making the mommy and daddy sit in the chairs. The daddy works in the kitchen (she's so observant!). The mommy and daddy sit at the table and then she makes eating noises for them. The baby she puts in the swing and then pushes the baby. At no time are the baby, the mommy or the daddy ever allowed to be in the bed. I think that says it all right there.

I love you and wish I could give you an irl hug.
One day I shall. <3333

Reading about Alex delights me more than ever because now it really gives me an idea of what's coming.

Yeah, there's lots of good stuff coming up, that's for sure!

Hugs. I know how you feel about the busy time. I feel like I am never going to have some "me-time" again.

But we both know that we will eventually!;)

Hugs for you and that baby too!

Holy smokes Alex has a lot of teeth. Does she get cranky when she teethes?

I hope things calm down for you soon.

Thank you, and yes, she is a total bear when she teethes. I don't know whether it's good that it's happening all at once, or bad because of the excessive discomfort... poor little girl :(
