one of those days...

Working grave shifts are hard; working grave shifts and having a 14 month old are really hard.  I typically get off at 4:30 and go home, unless I go grocery shopping first.  I'll usually go online for a little while because I can't just go to bed as soon as I get home, I typically need to unwind for a bit.  I then take a shower (the thick starbucks smell is not good) and get in to bed, by then, it's usually 5:45 or 6.  Brooklynne wakes up around 7, I nurse her (yes, we're still nursing) and put her back in her crib and she usually will sleep till 8 or 8:30.  So most mornings I'm functioning on and hour of sleep, maybe 2, and it's very wearing on my body.  I try to get a nap in during the day, but if I nap, that typically means that I won't have time to get my house picked up, I also go to the gym every day, too (which has become a love of mine).  Brooklynne doesn't always see things the same way as I do, take today for example: she took a nap when we got home from the gym (it was 2 hours past nap time, so she was wiped) and slept for 2 hours.  When I went to put her down for her second nap (she was rubbing her eyes and mega grumpy), she laid right down, I left the room and a few minutes later she started crying.  I let her cry for 30 minutes but knew she wasn't going to go to sleep, so I got her up and she played for a good 2 hours.  She was then really grumpy and rubbing her eyes, so I put her down again, and she did the same thing.  So, she's in her crib right now, crying, but so exhausted.  It makes days where I worked the night before and where I have to work that night really hard.  Fall asleep baby girl!!

Anyways, today is my Friday for work, so hopefully tomorrow will be better and happier for both of us.  

Husband and I will be working on really our first ever budget tomorrow night for our Dave Ramsey class, and I'm actually really excited about it.  I'm excited about the idea of being debt free and paying cash for everything and being on the same page for our bills and money.  The past few months we've been a lot more open and honest with our communication when it comes to money, and I've loved it.  I can't wait till we are another success story for the Dave Ramsey system!!

Okay, time to go get my kid up...she's still crying.

at least she's cute.


  1. Hey girl, praying for some energy for you. And, we have been paying cash for everything for almost a year now. Love it! It really makes you think about every single thing you spend money on. And the great thing is, somehow there ends up being money for things we need. Love it!

  2. I love Dave Ramsey! Do you guys listen to his podcasts? Also! did you see he is coming to Fresno?
    Kris and I really want to go!
