Can anyone tell me why it is that the earlier I go to bed, the more tired I am the next day? Joley and I went to bed about 9:30p. Mike had to get up early and wanted to be at work by 5a so I headed to bed early to make sure he couldn’t blame me for his lack of sleep. I fed Joley the same as I normally would but for some reason I am exhausted today. Maybe my body is learning how to get by on very little sleep and I messed it up getting a few extra hours. I really wish Joley would start sleeping through the night. Like, really, really wish she would.
Mike replaced the fan in her bedroom. We had a Walmart ceiling fan in there but oddly it didn’t circulate any air. It was really bizarre. Our upstairs is hot during the day and I won’t lower the AC any further when we are rarely up there. She needed a working fan (not to mention the lowered SIDS risk because of one). Mike changed it out on Wednesday night with one from Home Depot and now it is breezy in there and oh so nice. Joley slept in her bed twice yesterday. I am trying to get her into her bed all the time but right now, she still sleeps with me at night. Baby steps people… baby steps.
I had to use my inhaler last night after I got out of the shower. 🙁 I hate this and really wish I could just go on a maintenance med. I need to try to find a doctor that will help I guess. There used to be a free/sliding scale doctor that saw people in a church basement locally (does that sound creepy? It isn’t really.) I have to find the number and try to see if they are still doing that and if they can help with the asthma situation.
Anyone have any weekend plans? I am not sure what we are going to do. I know Mike wants to bbq some pork ribs this weekend so we need to go grocery shopping. We are pretty much out of all types of meat so definitely we need to hit up Aldi. Do you know that they have the cheapest ground beef around right now? I think it it is only $1.79/lb! That is great. Oh, and I am going to the $1 flip flop sale at Old Navy. This is the only thing I really WANT to do. You can get up to 5 pairs of solid flip flops for $1 a pair. Whoo hoo! I had to throw mine away from last year because the bad cat puked on them. Wasn’t that nice of her? I want to get a black and gray pair for sure but not sure on any other colors. I probably should look through my closet and see what will work best.
We have no plans for the holiday. I am not sure if the kids are going to their grandparents’ or not but regardless, we will be home doing nothing. I am looking forward to it. Whatcha gonna do for the holiday?
