Following up my 3 day marathon post of a story, I haven’t got much to say.
Ronan was a complete bear last night. He didn’t go to sleep easily or well, he was up at 10 and didn’t go back down until 2 am. Yes, I’m serious. I tried for almost 2 hours to put him to sleep. All of my usual tricks did nothing.
We are starting something new. I’m taking a page out of the books of a few of my friends. We’re doing a super strict schedule, which means meal times, nap times and wake times at the SAME time every day. We’re going to be more strict about bed time, and staying in bed. We’re going to get this under control. We have to, before I snap.
I have been depressed, and not getting anything done. No energy, no drive, no desire. I’m wasting my life away. I think most of it can be contributed to sleep deprivation and exhaustion. I can’t keep living like this, and it’s NOT better for Ronan than a happy, well rested mom would be.
Wish me luck.
