It’s hard to believe that this is the last day of the month and that tomorrow will be March already! We had a few nice days this week (in the 50s!) which means that spring is on its way. But of course, winter will not give up easy I’m sure–in fact I looked at the forcast for this week and saw that we are due for some more snow 😦 Hopefully not too much.
I made the decision to call out of work last night. First of all, I was SO excited about the new bedroom set and wanted to sleep in it for the first time the same night as Kimm. And secondly, I have only called out twice so far in the 1 1/2 years that I have been at the hospital–since we don’t ever get that accrued sick time paid out to us, if we don’t use it, we essentially lose it (they don’t take it away, but if you are never sick, you don’t get it paid to you). So I decided to take a day for me. And I’m glad I did. I was wicked tired from not sleeping well the night before and had never gotten a nap in so I would have been really tired at work if I had gone.
So after much anticipation of sleeping in the bed–I was NOT able to get much sleep! This had nothing to do with the bed, or the new bedding (which is ultra comfortable), but rather with the fact that Madeline, after being so good for about a month, decided to bother us again last night with her scratching on the door. It was so frustrating! Just when we were about to fall asleep, she would scratch. Scratch, scratch, scratch!! GRRRR…
And then finally I got up and put her in the downstairs bathroom. I hate to do that, but I really needed some sleep.
But I never was able to get back to sleep because then I started feeling stuffy and couldn’t fall asleep. So I got up about 8 am and have been up since. I’m actually suprised I haven’t taken a nap yet!
But once Kimm got up and we had lunch, then I attacked the bedroom–as far as putting clothes back into the closet and into my chest. And surprisingly, it all fit. We still have a bunch of laundry to do tomorrow, so hopefully after that’s all done, I’ll still be saying the same thing 🙂 I don’t know why it is, but I always feel really accomplished when I organize everything into drawers 🙂
I think tonight we are going to just relax. I know that a pizza from Pizzaria Regina is definitely in the plan!
