Stop Fighting It

It’s been about three weeks since Kid started refusing his afternoon naps. It’s been about three weeks since felt like I had my sh*t together. During those three weeks, Kid and I both had head colds, but neither of us kicked them on our own–he came down with an ear infection and I had a sinus infection. This brought a (temporary) reprieve to this change, but…

…I need to stop fighting this (day) sleep transition. He’s rocking a solid uninterrupted ~12 hours at night and on the days when we having something to do in the morning, he generally takes a two hour nap at midday. But…

…I like that time mid-morning where I can sit with my cup of coffee and my thoughts and JUST. BE. I need that time to recharge my batteries. I knew this was coming, but had hoped it would be later. Not now. Three or four months from now. But…

…I don’t get to make that call. One nap a day, here we come.

Health & Stress

My mom worries about me. Her concern is that I do too much.

About six weeks ago, I had a sinus infection (yay antibiotics). I was diagnosed with another one during JOB DRAMA 2011 (yay more antibiotics). Add in the lingering leg issue. It’s tax season (yay PT job). I have a new full-time job (YAY!!!). I have six weeks left in this semester and a major deliverable is due the first week of April. Shake. Stir. Whatever.

I didn’t run the St. Patrick’s Day 8K this past weekend. In fact, the last exercise related thing I did was create an awesomely unflattering video for school three weeks ago.

I ran Friday after work since we got early release “due to an outbreak of highly contagious spring fever.”

I’ll try to put in some more miles in the meantime and will gut out the Cherry Blossom Ten Mile Run in two weeks.

After that run, I’ll be doing some re-evaluating. Somethings got to give.
