Yesterday, Sofie came back home from my mom’s and I went down to the ferry to meet and pick her up.
Jason and I made it our goal to get the vacant apartment unit in our building rented, so we held an “Open House” at our building, not a super huge turn out, but I think we found a renter. Crossing our fingers, any way.
Later that day, Jason went out to run some errands while Sofie and I stayed home. She was a bit of a cranky girl most of the evening so it was a bit of a difficult night for me. She hadn’t napped all day and was clearly very tired, and as patient as I wanted to be, I was frankly tired too. It’s been a bit difficult for us to settle into a good sleep pattern since we moved here (I talk more about it in my weekly video update here), and it’s been starting to catch up to me. I find myself to be way more irritable and short-tempered, and I feel bad when I feel like I can’t handle Sofie sometimes because of it.
So, it was a bit of a rough evening, but Sofie and I eventually worked things out and were in a good place by bed time. I understand that sometimes things are going to be tough raising a toddler, but I except the challenge and hope I can better myself by working through the hard days like yesterday.
This video is going up a little late, but I had a busy weekend!
I’m talking about sleep issues today, and how it’s been hard getting settled into a regular pattern. If any of you parents out there have suggestions on how we can all get more sleep, please leave a comment! Let me know what works for you, I ‘d love to hear suggestions.
After a long night of painting, I was pretty tired, but unfortunately, no sleeping in for me.
I had a prior commitment to do makeup for a press event at Bellevue Fashion week, so with less than 2 hours of sleep I managed to pull myself together (pretty nicely, in fact) to make it to work for a few hours in the morning.
Regardless of the fact that I was stinkin’ tired, I still had a great time working and made a few business connections too. After the fancy work stuff was over I headed straight back to the old place to continue moving the rest of our stuff. Which we still had a lot of…
Sofie was still at my parent’s house and I was missing her quite a bit, but I knew that by the end of the weekend, it would all be worth it!
