Down and Out.


This past week has been a bit uneventful so I’m not sure what to update you all on. I was lucky to have last Thursday off to be with Levi which I cherished 100%. He continued to have his cold through the week and is finally seeming to be better. He only coughs a little bit but it’s nowhere near how it was when he first had it. He’s doing a lot better. Today he’s been pretty fussy so I’m really tired. It seems like everything I try to do to keep him occupied only works for 10 minutes and then he’s bored of it. Doesn’t help that it’s been raining either so I didn’t take him on a walk like I wanted to. It’s windy and when the wind blows it’s super cold so I didn’t want to put him through that, although I’m sure he would have enjoyed getting out of the house.

I worked on Saturday, per usual, and then Sunday was fun family day! We went downtown to the farmers market but then it ended up raining so we weren’t there for long. We then went to my parents house to pick up a few things and headed home around 2 and then I had my tax appointment at 3. Blah, taxes. I didn’t realize how expensive it was going to be this year to file them.

My blood sugars have been extremely poor this past week. I’m not sure if it’s because I’m stressed out about personal things going on in my life or what. I’m talking about always being in the 200’s and last night I was in the 300’s and was high overnight that I ended up correcting but woke up at 180 anyways. For all of my non-diabetic readers, that’s awful blood sugars! I’ve been eating badly, too. It’s like I stopped caring about my health and I need to get on track somehow. I feel uninspired and I think because I had no worries while on vacation, I’ve brought that mentality back home with me? I don’t know.

So while I’m trying to get back on track with being healthy, I’m dealing with working full time this week and dealing with not knowing who’s going to watch Levi during the week. My aunt isn’t able to watch him tomorrow so I was able to get my dad to watch him but I didn’t think that was going to work out so I was panicking and assuming I’d have to call out of work tomorrow. Then, I’m working Thursday so I need to figure out who will watch him then. I don’t like to put him with the same person multiple days in the week because I always feel bad like I’m tiring everyone out because it is tiring taking care of a baby, lets be honest.

I woke up in a depressed mood and I’ve shed a couple of tears today. My emotions are out of whack and I’m probably spending too much time in my own head or something. I already can’t wait for this week to be over with. I have nothing special going on this week except for a doctor appointment via phone call on Wednesday for Levi. I was hoping it would be during my lunch hour but it won’t be, so I’ll have to pull myself away from work for a second since it’s really important. Levi still doesn’t seem interested in crawling but he does love to stand. He’ll stand while holding onto my shirt and if I put him far away from me (while holding his arms), he’ll walk to me and it’s the cutest thing ever. I was able to put him in his crib for his first nap today! It was successful and he slept for about an hour and half and didn’t cry once I put him down. I think I’m going to try to put him down in his crib tonight to see how it goes. I really want to transition him back to his crib by the summer since it’ll be hot and I definitely don’t want to share the bed with him when it’s 100 degrees in our house. The upstairs is always 10x hotter than the downstairs, and sometimes the AC doesn’t make much of a difference. So that’ll be fun. He still only has his two teethers and hasn’t been drooling much today. I’m wondering if his teeth will just randomly come through without notice because every time we think he’s teething hardcore and teeth will pop out, they don’t. He says “dadadadada” and “bababa” all the time and we love it.
