I am going nutty! For the past week or so Mila has just up and decided that napping is for losers. She's not even 18 months yet, and she's already refusing to nap! Granted, when she doesn't nap, she goes to bed by like 6ish, but STILL, I can't handle it. I so NEED a couple hours during the day to chill and de-freak while she sleeps. I hadn't realized how much I depended on that time to nap or clean or read or whatever. Any advice or tips on how to get her to nap? I've tried the whole route of letting her scream it out in the crib, and she wins every time...she'll NEVER stop crying. She throws her bottle and all her blankets/stuffed animals out of the crib and just stands there shrieking. FOREVER. Listening to her scream is more horrible than just letting her roam free and stay awake. :/ I am so not a happy camper right now!
I'm not much of a resolution setter, but with the new year I have been casually thinking of a few goals I'd like to set. One thing I want to do more this year is write. Whether that be in a personal journal, or on this blog, or maybe (but probably not) workin on my book, I know that I really do usually just feel better when I'm expressing myself through the written word. My anxiety has been a killer lately and I really think this could help. So, hopefully/maybe you'll see more frequent posts from me.
And, also, here's a pic of my red(der) hair. I luuuuuurve it! I'm going to go even more red next time. :) What think ye?
Hope you all have a great weekend. I think we're just going to chill at home. There's been a massive snow storm in UT over the past 24 hours or so...like we're talking FEET AND FEET of snow, but further south from SLC, where we live, we've only gotten like half an inch! So everyone's been complaining about how awful it is, and I'm very happily chillin in a house where there isn't too much snow. Granted, we've already got a foot or so from the snowstorm from hell right around Christmas, but, luckily, no new snow. (I hate snow and I live in UT. Go figure.) Anyway, we pry won't want to brave the streets this weekend and instead will stay cozied up in the house.
Also, there is a horrible influenza outbreak in UT right now with a TON of fatalities I hear. :( I live in mortal fear of this flu because if I caught it, with my lung disease, it seriously might kill me. So I am happy to stay at home and steer clear. Two of my sisters and their families have caught it...and I feel so sad for them! Stay healthy and stay breathing! Rah I hate snow and flu season. I just want to lie in the sun and go swimming!!! MAKE SUMMER COME!!!
