Wow, I don't know what happened, but I feel very BLAH right now. I'm not sure how to explain it, but all I want to do right now is curl up and take a nap....but my body/mind just won't let me!! My day started ok, then all of sudden...BLAM!! I don't want to do anything!

My day started with Heather having a meltdown. I knew it was going to happen sooner or later, what with all the big changes in her life over the past few weeks, but she DID NOT want to take a bath or shower this morning and ended up in a full crying meltdown over it. I ended up standing her in the bath....crying and stomping...while wiping her down and pouring water over her head! I felt HORRIBLE! I ended up snuggling her afterwards until she calmed down. Then she was fine and got ready for school. I think she needs more sleep. I need to think of how we can do that. As of right now when I return from my walk at 7:45 she has a snack and then off to bed at 8. Brush teeth, potty, two stories and some mommy snuggles. But she never actually falls asleep until 8:30-8:45. Then it is up at 6:30 to say goodbye to daddy and get ready for school. Luckily this is only 4 days a week. Guess I need to figure out a way to get her to sleep earlier. Poor thing!

Then after she left I exercised and showered. At 10 I met one of my crochet students and helped her figure out how to re-create a crocheted purse that she loved. She bought me coffee and paid me enought $$ that I was able to buy myself a new crochet book!! Crochet ME has some great stuff in it that I can't wait to make for myself!!
Then when I got home it hit!! I talked to Trevor on the phone and she was having a bad I guess it rubbed off on me! I don't feel like doing anything right now...and that includes CROCHETING!!! Can you believe that!
So, I guess I'll just go lay on the couch and watch some tv. It's really HARD for me not to snack when I feel this way!! I'm just gonna hang until it's time to pick up H from school. Glad the weekend starts tomorrow!

I have found giving my daughter her own "grown-up" vanilla scented bath gel is great for calming. Hope your Pooh day doesn't drag you down too much as I'm looking forward to seeing you do more wonderous things with your crochet.

Hang in there, and if you need a hug, give your favorite skein of yarn a squeeze.

I wanted to stop by and tell you how much I like your new tam hat design.
I think your daughter will be fine. She's just had a lot going on this week and sometimes it just needs to come out and Mom's the best for that.
Hope you're not coming down with anything. Take the break ... you deserve it!
