I haven't been sleeping well. I thought it was because I was too hot - and the solution of making it cooler worked for one night. Now I just can't get to sleep. I really think it is because Keagan is finally sleeping in his room. For the past 2 and a half years he has slept with me every night. He spent the night elsewhere here and there - but never for very long. I don't like sleeping alone. I never shared a room growing up - but after getting married - I never slept alone. I guess I had a few nights right before Malea was born when he worked nights and I was technically alone. I was very pregnant though - so who sleeps good then anyway. I have not slept alone for the past 16 years and now I've been sleeping alone for a week. It isn't going well.
On the house front - all inspections are done and I'm just now waiting on my invoices. I'm hoping to have the appraisal ordered next week. Hopefully it won't be long now...I would love to have this house sold by the end of the month. No movement on my old house - which is fine since I'm still doing work on it. I don't have very high hopes there - will be looking in to options to rent in the near future. I would at least get out of most of the mortgage payment that way.
I'm so proud of Malea. She is doing so well. She's been getting up on her own - she has been talking A LOT! She used to call me after school and just be silent - and now she tells me so much about her day. I'm really enjoying it. She's just so much happier and full of life. I'm hoping this is a good sign for the year. She seems to really like all of her teachers - no old teachers - Malea and older women don't seem to get along for some reason (like above 60). She has even packed a lunch 2 days in a row. I know this is just the first week - but I'm still very hopeful.
Keagan has been doing well as well - but he has had this major anger issue lately. I don't know how to control it. I can't do anything during these little tantrums. He didn't really throw tantrums when he was younger - and 7 seems a little old to start doing that. I don't know - he just gets so mad. I wasn't ever able to help his Dad with his anger - but he generally was able to redirect it. I just need to be able to teach Keagan how to do that. His Dad would be able to help in this area I think. He is so sweet 95% of the time - but that 5% can be so difficult. If it was just with me - I would be able to handle it better - but it isn't just me. I'm working on setting up a punching bag and hoping that helps a little bit. CrossFit kids starts up again soon as well - but most likely he can only do 1 night - so that doesn't help a lot. It is something though.
I am a wife and mother of 2. I have many different interests - baking, home renovations, music, education ;)
