Note to self: Weekends are for relaxing! It's Monday AM-ish and I'm exhausted. We spent the weekend packing up all our personal effects into plastic crates where they will sit in storage indefinitely. We're trying to pull a "designed to sell" on our Condo, and I think it will work. Most of what we need to store is books and bookshelves. We're getting rid of carloads of stuff as well. It's just so exhausting, but it feels really good to purge our house of all this stuff. I think it will look really nice when it's done. Plus it didn't help that Eric woke up at 5:30 both days. He tried to go back to sleep, but by 6:30 he gave up. Because my husband is a super-star, and a morning person, he gets up with Eric. But the night's sleep is pretty much shot by then and I'm still tired all day even if I get to sleep late.
He woke up at 4:45 this morning. I went in there to lay him back down, and he tried to climb up me when I went to hug him and lay him down. So, I snapped off his nightlight and he went back to sleep until 7:00 AM. So whoo HOO. What a difference, but I'm still really tired. It's just tough, because I can't get back to sleep easily under the best of circumstances. And I really can't get to sleep until I think he's actually drifted off because what's the point if he's just going to wake me up again a few minutes later?
And there's no end in site. Next weekend we have to paint. But then we're off to Florida on Wednesday night, so it will be SO nice to have a little vacation.
Rich and I BOTH forgot valentines day this morning. How sad is that? That's how tired and distracted we are.
Rich's aunt died on Friday. This is very sad. She was really kind to us at our wedding. He's off to her wake today and then to a dinner to honor her. What a way to spend valentines day, eh?
