I am in need of a break. Not from blogging per se, though I'll probably take the rest of the weekend off while I search for some much needed me time, but from the rigors of daily life with a teething infant and a 2010 full of absolutely zero down time. I mean, seriously, my version of "me time" is D taking Ava so I can just be with two kids. AT WORK. That's not "me time" folks.
Today was rough. Partially A is teething hardcore, and while some babies are easy teethers whose teeth just pop through without announcing themselves for weeks prior, A is not one of those babies. The other part of it is that she's fighting sleep in a major way lately, and whereas the effort to get her to nurse to sleep at nap/bed isn't too extreme, today I spent FOUR FREAKIN' HOURS between trying to get her to sleep at naps and at bed. I'm a nutjob right now.
Another part of it may be that in an attempt to ease the insomnia I've been going through lately, I've cut my dosage of my PPD meds in half. Could it be a coincidence that the week I've started that I've also started to lose my shit and feel overwhelmed and exhausted and just emotionally drained? Doubtful. Looks like I'll be trading hard to fall/stay asleep for sanity. It's a worthy trade, though.
Anyhow, I'll be back after the weekend. I just need some time off from life.
