However, I did get myself on some semblance of a schedule. My baby too. 

Well that seems like a big win on its own! Hope therapy was as helpful as you needed it to be.

It helps so much. Last week was the first time I haven't had to work on a weekend in a couple of months. 

 

Therapy actually was super helpful! My therapist and her student are amazing

Okay guys I'm trying mindfulness and meditation again - I downloaded Balance and claimed my free year membership and meditated last night. I've also been listening to subliminal messaging videos as I sleep at night. I have no clue if it helps, but honestly, it's not hurting so I see no reason to stop. 

 

It's been a rough few days sleep-wise, Baby Jedi has her first cold and it's definitely been a struggle. I hate that she's feeling bad 😭

Happy Thursday?

 

It's been.. a lot. Had an altercation with my grandmother this morning and had to call my mom in for it. I felt so bad but she doesn't listen to anyone else. They had a fight to figure things out (my grandmother has no communication skills nor any desire to learn). 

 

Last night Mr. Right and I went to a concert in Richmond, which was hugely fun and a great destress opportunity. Especially since yesterday my grandmother was (as Mr. Right said) "packing fire."

 

I'm just going to be grateful when I can get my own home.  But we're doing fairly well financially which helps a lot as far as that's concerned. 

 

Today I'm super off my normal schedule but I'm okay with that because I got rest I needed after that concert.  And I'm on track for my hours which is a miracle imo. 

 

Just did a midday meditation for focus and it was a nice relaxation moment before I hop back into my work for the day. 

 

Have a great day everyone!

ooops it's been a bit. 

 

I had another rough week with baby not feeling great - tuesday I had to take her to the doc to rule out an ear infection. No infection thank goodness, looked just like a cold. Possibly teething in there as well, poor lil thing.  Which means I'm working on a sunday.

 

But on the up side, yesterday was my anniversary so Mr. Right and I went out for dinner and saw the DnD movie (which was actually pretty great imo)  and also got a new pair of shoes each. Lots of fun!

 

Today is working, and also prepping my planner for the month of May

Okay. So.

 

First and foremost, I had to really edit my schedule that I'd created. I was assuming that I'd be able to work my amount of hours every day no problem - that was in fact, a lie. I was not. I was doing most of the care for Baby Jedi and trying to work at the same time.

 

As you may have expected, that worked splendedly.

 

Yeah no.

 

I was working late into the night and every single weekend.  It was disgusting

 

So I had to make some decisions and adjustments.

 

My primary decision was to stop taking over whenever I knew something was up with the baby but Mr Right was home. Basically, letting him be the dad he's fully capable of being. I started taking over too much and I just couldn't anymore. 

 

My second decision was to have my sister-in-law watch Baby Jedi one day a week. 

 

And I'd been feeling sooooo guilty about those decisions until I powered through a book called Moms Who Work. I would recommend this book to literally every mom. It's incredible.  If you're a mom and you work, read the book. It really helps you dial in on what's important to you and what that looks like in your life. 

 

Which means I'm going to have to sit down and do some thinking and note taking on life to see what my priorities are. Obviously, my health is important, I just need to figure out how to honor that, and how to create goals here in NF to honor that.
