sigh of relief…

I know, I know, I know. It’s been FOREVER.  I’m just so darn tired and busy in the evenings, blogging always seems to find its way to the back burner. Much of my energy over the last couple weeks has been spent on childcare for Jolie. Unfortunately, she got kicked out of daycare. The bottom line is that she needs a lot of attention and our daycare woman didn’t feel like she could give her that attention. I was devastated when it happened. I really loved the daycare and it was affordable. But ultimately, I had to get over it and move on. Luckily, my sister has been able to bail us out and watch Jolie in the interim. What would I do without her?!?  However I am pleased to announce…drumroll please…I hired a nanny on Friday and she is awesome!! The search is over! It’s a huge relief to me.

Here is a recent photo of my little daycare dropout. 🙂

randomness.

It’s been so long since I posted. And I’d really like to post a thoughtful and meaningful entry. But frankly, I’m just too tired to put that much thought into a post right now.  Instead, a laundry list of randomness will have to do.

– Jolie started rolling over last week. It was SO exciting and sad at the same time. It was sad because I missed it – I was working. Of course, she’s rolled over 100 times since then, but I missed the first one. My brain kept telling me “Don’t overreact. It’s not a big deal. There are going to be a million ‘firsts’. Don’t sweat it.” Unfortunately, my heart didn’t agree. I found myself crying at my desk. Absolutely pathetic. At least nobody saw me!

– I continue to be annoyed daily by the idiots of the world. I would be so much happier if we could eliminate cigarette litterers, cops on segways, low-rider cars, traffic and bumper stickers.
Sleep training is going ok. The “cry-it-out” part is getting easier and shorter. But she’s still pretty inconsistent with her sleeping. Last night was a good night, but the night before was a very bad night.
– I LOVE living on Alki. I think it’s one of the most awesome neighborhoods in Seattle. LOVE IT!
– We had a lovely father’s day on Sunday. We had some friends over for brunch and then had the rest of the day to relax. It was perfect!
– Derek, my mom and Kristen sat me down the other day and had an “intervention” for me. For my shoulder. They are worried that I’m not doing my physical therapy and that it’s not getting better and won’t get better. It was all very dramatic and over the top. The truth is that I’m exhausted and the physical therapy takes an hour each night. But, I know that they are right and that I do need to make more of an effort. I’m only hurting myself. In fact, I need to wrap this up so I can get to it.



a blog for anyone, but mostly for me.
