This is my first time hopping on with this link-up, but I always love a good opportunity for a brain dump to own up to anything and everything!
Online shopping will be the death of me. I swear there are always items I am checking the tracking and status of, if not multiple items. I blame Amazon Prime. Why go to the mall and browse for a picture frame when I can hop on line, find exactly what I’m looking for, and have it delivered on my front door. Another package arriving may be an item I just returned but was able to get for WAY less online. So it might look like I am shopping too much, but a lot of it is just swapping out for better deals, so really I am saving money, right?
2. Sleep Deprived
Ladies, I seriously need your help. My little guy turns one next week and we are up with him nearly every single night. We have cut out nighttime nursing, avoid bringing him in our bed, let him cry a bit before we tend to him, but nothing seems to work. I am at a loss (for both my sanity and my sleep) and have no idea how to break this cycle short of shutting all of the doors and letting him cry for hours until he eventually passes out. I am a bit terrified that this really might be our only option at this point.
I am seriously just lazy lately. I don’t want to work. I don’t want to cook. I don’t want to grocery shop (which for some weird reason I usually love). I just don’t want to do anything. I think I am more than ready for a new season and some new inspiration!
4. Marriage and a baby
Being married and having a baby that sucks up every free minute of your time can be tough. I am not saying not to do it; these are the two greatest things that have happened to me. But as of late, with the hubs working long days, baby being especially demanding, and my aforementioned laziness, I feel like we are lucky to get in more than a five minute conversation most days. We also just swore off going out to dinner anytime soon as a family of three after our little guy took every ounce of joy out of our ‘night out’ by throwing food on the floor and acting like a monster. [sidenote: is this early stage terrible twos? save me now] Again, I am hoping that a huge part of everyone’s ‘blahs’ lately are due to a need for change in season. Cool walks, football, and holiday activities are all great things to do together, and I can’t wait.
Speaking of babies and the one I have that currently having me on the verge of tears with his schedule and behavior, I am borderline insane and am dealing with some baby fever. Perhaps it is because I often would like to replace my current baby with a less mobile, less vocal newborn 😉 Gimme all the sweet squishy babies, I am surrounded by two pregnant ladies at work and I am all jealousy when they talk about their pregnancies. Talk to me down the road when I am dealing with morning sickness and I’ll let you know if I still have these feelings!
