So my hope was that 2011 would be my great year. I’d be happy, healthy, and ready for new excitement. Yeah, I got excitement all right…My apartment was broken into 3 weeks ago. They stole ALL of my electronics, my camera, my laptop with all the pictures of Princess’s life on it. The thing that upset me the most was knowing malicious people were in my home, touching my daughter’s stuff, my stuff. That someone came and violated me on such a personal level. I’m still having trouble sleeping, being in the quiet. But I’m trying to be an adult-get over it, move on. File the insurance, replace and repair the hurt. But I’m definitely moving OUT of the Big D when the lease is up. not sure where exactly. My princess is getting older, so we can go start enjoying things like library story times, the park, play dates, and I’m hoping to go back to church, and there are a few good churches out in that area.
Secondly I ended up having to pull Princess out of her daycare. I just couldn’t take it anymore. The constant sickness-she couldn’t get over it b/c they were allowing sick TEACHERS to be there. There is no way she could stay healthy when they didn’t even care if the teacher was hacking and coughing all over the kids. The final straw was the staph infection she got from them. I don’t know why cleaning a child well at diaper change, and staying sanitary are so difficult, but apparently so. I also realized she ended up with pink eye from there too-just too much for me. I actually got her dad to go with me to tour a new school, the one I’ve actually been wanting to send her too since she was a newborn. she’ll be starting there right after she turns 2. I can’t believe she’s almost 2, but that will be a separate post…
Work has been insane. So stressful-everyone has been stressed out due to the super bowl/bud light hotel, and then we had 2 weeks of insane snow/ice which actually closed us down for a few days-something that NEVER HAPPENS. you know the weather is a mess if we are closed!! Everyone has been stressed out, crabby, exhausted. Its been so hard to be positive, and sometimes even hard to be nice. I had stress too with all that, but most of the people I work with didn’t know that. Its just been so frustrating and I’m really hoping that it all gets back to normal!
With how hard this year has been so far, its one of the first times in awhile that I really wish I wasn’t single-that I had someone there to help me handle all the stress, comfort me, help me navigate through it all. But I’m a big girl, I’ve had to handle it all on my own (with support from friends and family, which I really do appreciate it) but its not the same as having a boyfriend/husband/significant other there next to me to help me all through it. I feel like I’ve had no choice but to completely grow up, emotionally, to try to make it through all this.
I’d just like the next few weeks to be quiet and drama free please….
