It's a good thing he's so darn adorable
Because he's kind of been driving me crazy lately.
Not that I blame him for acting out. I'm stressed, which I'm sure he senses. And he's also having to deal with having had Daddy around all the time, to suddenly now Daddy's gone for 5 days straight while he works in Sacramento. In a way it's amazing he's not being more of a terror. Add to this the fact that I'm stressed out about finding a house to move to, and am pregnant = hormonal + exhausted beyond reason = unable to deal with toddlers who scream and throw things as well as I maybe otherwise would.
Add this all together, and, well, it hasn't been all that pleasant around here lately.
But, we're getting along. It's not an ideal situation, but we're almost done with our 2nd week of it. Jen's taking the train down to spend the day with us tomorrow, and up ahead is a 3-day weekend. And, we *might* have found a townhouse to rent that's pretty close to perfect. I'm trying not to get too excited about it till we know we have it (the last time we thought we'd found our house things didn't work out when the owner suddenly refused to return any of our calls, so I'm trying not to count our chickens before the proverbial eggs hatch). It sure will be nice to have this settled, though-- once we have a house, we can then set a moving date. And once we set a moving date, I can move on to thinking about all sorts of other things that have been on the back-burner till we figured this whole thing out. Unfortunately, now instead of moving around the first of the month, we might not be doing so until well into the 2nd week of June. Which is a bummer, but, hell, it's better than nothing.
In other positive news, today was the first day all week that I didn't feel the need to pass out as soon as D went down for his nap. Here's hoping that first-trimester fatigue might be starting to lift...? *crossing fingers*
