Gotta Give

I have been absent for many reasons. We spent Memorial Day weekend away at the cottage. Then, the family I nanny for had the new baby last Wednesday. So, Trev and I were at their house caring for the other kids from Tuesday night-Friday. We had a busy weekend. Unfortunately, the kids Mom was readmitted to the hospital yesterday with a kidney infection. So, Trev and I stay until they come home. This should be tomorrow or Wednesday.

The little time Ive had to blog, I haven't. The past few weeks have just, sucked. There isn't a more sophisticated way of saying it. Sissy lost bambino #2 in a matter of 6 months. Laney spent 2 days in the hospital with a kidney infection(whats with these things?) and has to get catheterized Wednesday to figure out the next step. My moms been feeling ill again, likely due to all the stress. Toms friend found out he has stage 3 cancer in his head. He is 24 years old. I am sick and tired of waiting for Toms job to come through. And terrified it may not. There is no plan B here.

With all this fun happening during the day, Trevor has been sleeping terrible at night. I am running on empty.

I hope life takes a major turn this week. Somethings gotta give, right?

Erin, I am sooo sorry about everything that has been happening!! You are in my prayers!!

On Trevor's note..McKenzie has been sleeping HORRIBLE also. Today I bought the Sleep Lady's Goodnight Sleep Tight book. IT's a book on how to get your baby to sleep well with out CIO. I'll let you know how it is. Email me if you want to talk about it;)

Many prayers that things start to turn around soon - it does seem as though the bad things all manage to happen at the same time. Hang in there!

Yes, it seems like when it rains, it pours. For days!

Just focus on the task at hand and don't worry about the things you can't control or you'll go crazy.

Hello,
I have been following your blog for a while now, but I have never commented.
I think nows about time.
You sound like you have had a horrendous few weeks, there is nothing anyone can say to put you at ease.
But know that there are complete strangers out there that are hoping for the best for you.
And just do you don't think I'm a weirdo, My name is Sarah, and I live in New Zealand.

Erin,
I am so sorry that your going through this. Please know your family is in our thoughts and prayers.

As for Trevor sleeping at night, have you looked into the miracle blanket? It's sold at BRU and works really well. My guy slept awful at nights until I was recommended to try this and it's fabulous!

Stephanie said...

Lots of prayers headed your way friend.

I know how it feels to constantly wonder about the hubs' job situation... my Trevor has been waiting and waiting for something to happen on that front for ages. It sucks. I really hope Tom's situation turns out well!

Sounds like you guys have a lot on your plate lately. I hope that something (or everything) settles out soon. Hope Laney is feeling better, Trev is sleeping better, your mom feels better, Tom's job comes through, and your sister is doing okay...
