The breaking point
Oh my goodness. These last 2 weeks have just been too much for me to handle. Let’s rewind to the beginning of last week. The first 3 days of the week were horrible in that the Yankees were in town playing the Mariners, which meant that my commute home was double what it usually is. It took me 2 hours to get home on Wednesday evening, when it usually takes me 45 minutes or so. Of course this meant my time with Decker before he headed off to bed was limited.
Then my boss and I had a disagreement at work on Thursday, which involved her getting angry and basically yelling. Due to this, I had a hard time sleeping on Thursday night and worked from home on Friday. Friday evening came and I had put Decker down and was just sitting down to a glass of wine when my mother called and decided to partake in one of her normal episodes where she decides to criticize me regarding things that are NONE of her business! On top of the week I had had, this was just too much and I got very upset and started crying.
All I wanted to really do was rest over the weekend, but I had a bridal shower to attend and then had a night out with the girls. This meant that I didn’t get as much done over the weekend as I usually do, so I started this week feeling like I was behind. More work stress continued this week and on Tuesday, I started having symptoms of a urinary tract infection. The next few days, I was sooo tired. I didn’t realize UTIs could make a person so fatigued. I finally went to the doctor yesterday and got antibiotics. Raced home after that to get Decker’s stuff packed as I took him over to my parents’ house to stay for the week (driving 3 hours both ways.)
Today, Scott and I had planned to attend a friend’s wedding in Portland, but this morning came and all I wanted to do was REST! Luckily, Scott didn’t mind going to the wedding alone, so for the first time since Decker was born, I spent today absolutely alone. No baby or husband. Such a strange feeling. The good news is that I am finally feeling back to normal and I’m really looking forward to this week while Decker is visiting my parents’ to get some stuff done around the house. Scott and I also have a fun date night planned.
So, I am now tipping my wine glass and saying “good riddance” to the last two weeks and looking forward to a better week to come!
