Bleh.

I feel very bleh today. No other word (that I should type on here) can describe it. A small recap of the last 24 hours:
*We could NOT get Declan to sleep...being up all night equals a very exhausted mom today.
*We had a super busy weekend which was great but my house is a disaster. I'd clean it but...
*Declan will not nap today. He's got a cold (not new around here) and 1 of his top 2 teeth still pushing through. Regardless, I'm not use to an inconsolable baby.
*I work from home M-W-F and haven't been able to do anything work related (see above). 
*I'm eating healthier (which I'm really excited about) but my exhausted body is dealing with lots of different forms of withdraw...caffeine being the worse.
*I had a paperwork error at work and found out today that I have to give up my entire commission to pay for my mistake. 

Now, some things I need to write out so I don't get lost in my Monday misery:
*I love my husband and I love my son. I feel extraordinarily blessed that I'm Declan's mom.
*I have a cozy house (though currently messy). My refrigerator is stocked and my gas tank is full. I don't want to take those things for granted.
*My sister who lives in St. John took a quick trip home this week and I loved spending time with her and watching her in Auntie mode.
*My business has been going really well. I'm in full commission sales so that means that we don't have to worry too much about money for now. That's not always the case (cue memories of last winter with a newborn and a million new expenses).
*Declan recently weaned off of Ali.mentum and we now buy "normal" formula. 

Ok, deep breaths. I'm feeling a bit better. I'm thankful that each day is new. Tuesday...here I come.

Totally understand the bleh feeling today!

On another note, how do you design such a cute header for your blog? You need to teach me or I need to pay you to help me out! How much would you charge?

Oh....sorry for your rough week! Hang in there :)

Jess said...

Your header is very very cute. You should add that to your bottom list!! :)

Sounds like you have your hands full! Hope the rest of the week gets lots better!

I feel for you on the teething/sleeping issues front. But I have to say that I firmly believe your "bleh" is 99% the caffeine. I've successfully and unsuccessfully kicked caffeine in the past (the longest I went "clean" was 3 months at one point) and the first few days without it are just miserable. It feels like PMS plus a sleepy, fuzzy brain. There are three cures: caffeine, extra water and shopping therapy. Good luck. :)

I hear you on the unhappy baby part! I hope our babies get through this bout of teething real soon.

Those days are the worst. At least they are not the ones you usually remember. It's the good ones that stick with you.
