I'm Still Alive...

still married, and I haven't snapped Charlotte's neck.  I consider all of these to be major accomplishments.

As you can tell, I've gotten her off of me long enough to actually turn on the computer.  I've caught up with all of my f-list, and intend to actually post something about what little I've been doing.

At this rate, that should be about this time next week if things go really well...

Glad to hear from you. And I'm assuming this means that whatever was bothering Charlotte as far as eating was concerned has been resolved.

It will get easier. You will get the hang of things and eventually figure out how to have some "me time".

Take care.

No, not resolved. We're groping our way to a coping strategy since we can't seem to find a solution.

good to hear from you, glad you are all still alive!

Yay!! Glad to hear y'all are still amongst the living (Dad, too?), and eager to hear how it's going. :^)

Is that to say that you are managing to keep your patience with Charlotte, or that you've learned how to support her neck properly? :) (I have no patience for babies or children of pretty much any age so since you're not the type who strikes me as one of those girls who feels she was put on earth to be a mother, I'm curious about how you're dealing with the emotional stuff more than anything else. Hope it's going well for you!)

You've read me very well - as in I've managed to keep my temper. By the skin of my teeth, but so far so good.

I sometimes wish that I was one of those girls whose offspring become the be-all and end-all of their existence. It would make this SO much easier. But I'm not, and in a few months I'll be back to being glad of it.

Emotionally it's been really rough, but we're hanging on. Hopefully I can expound a bit this weekend when I can hand her off to Dad for a few daytime hours. The fact that I'm getting less anti-social is probably a good sign.

I was disappointed that I couldn't make it to the BBM meeting this week and didn't see you guys! We've been overtime/understaffed at work and I just was too tired to drag my sorry ass to the meeting...I'd have done it if I'd realized you'd be there.
And darnit I miss you!
You game for an evening visit up there yet? If you want, I could just show up (w/o the toddler), chat while I do your dinner dishes, then bug out. There were times when that's about all the visit I wanted.

It is a bummer.

I relate to your lack-of-ecstasy about a newborn--when I had Kiddo 1, I wondered what the big deal was and if life would ever be tolerable again. As Kiddo 1 got older and could fend for herself more, indeed life got better.
