"The sun will rise, the long day is over..."

Cloth Diaper Geek I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to be a guest blogger for Julie over at the Cloth Diaper Geek ! It was so much fun to do this and "speaking" with Julie was great! She's super nice and you should all go check out her blog, and my post! It's all about starting a cloth diaper stash when you're poor like me! :-)

Yesterday was a long, tiring, frustrating day. It's always hard when Pete goes back to work after his long break and I found myself missing him a lot. He works night, so not only do I miss him when he's actually at work, but also during the day when he's sleeping off his shift. It sucks, sucks, sucks, and I try to be as patient as possible because A. Pete loves his job and actually likes working nights and B. after NOT having a job for so long it's hard to hold a grudge!

That was a catalyst for my bla-ness, and adding to that is PJ being in full-swing teething mode. My sweet, sunny boy is completely out-of-sorts, and I know it's adding to how I am feeling. PJ is so uncomfortable, it's just pathetic. He's not napping well, and I think he may be bumping his mouth in his sleep because for three days in a row, he's woken up from his nap in a complete state of meltdown and it takes him a long time to return to something close to normal.

So yeah. It's all getting to me a bit.

Hopefully, it will get better because Pete switched shifts with a co-worker who needed to make a schedule change. It worked out because now he will have four more days off! During his time off we got a ton done around the apartment, so I am looking forward to this extra time to finish things up and also get a few other tasks done, like having our taxes done and cleaning out our (super-gross) cars.

For now, I am done with this onslought of whinny blogging and will wish you all...

...goodnight! :-)

An extra 4 days with Pete is awesome! I'm hoping to clean my car this weekend too.

Aww, poor baby. Teething is so touh. When the bigs started teething I had a friend give me a bottle of Crown. He said it was either for the teething babies gums, or me. Whoever I thought needed it most. And when you have two teething at the same time, yeah, that bottle is for you. I hope PJ gets to feeling better. Yay for getting to spend more time with Pete!
