Just me being stressed out

Friday, April 09, 2010

My husband starts his new job tomorrow. It is about an hour drive from here. Which leaves me home alone even more. My daughter has a tooth coming through and today has just been awful. I'm just hoping she won't be up all night like she was last time she cut a tooth. I'm really stressed out about moving. First of all, we applied for an apartment yesterday, but we won't know whether we got it or not for a little while. I'm afraid they will turn us down since my husband has just started his job. This is the only apartment we've liked.

The other thing that stressing me out is if we get this apartment, it doesn't have a basement or extra storage. It has plenty of closets and stuff, but we have a lot of stuff in our shed that we need to sort through. The bad thing is that it is too dangerous for my daughter to be out there and the baby monitor does not go that far, so I can't even sort through stuff while she's asleep. We would get it done so much faster if we could go through it together.

It really sucks that we have all of this family around here and no one will watch my daughter even for an hour or two. I don't have any friends with children around here to recommend a babysitter and I'm pretty leary about hiring a stranger anyway. I guess I will have to get over that when we move since we don't have any family there anyway.

There are some positives at least. We went shopping yesterday and found work pants and shirts for my husband for $5 each. I mean $5 Dickies. Awesome. Unfortunately they didn't have any shorts in his size, but it is still cool here for a little while. I also got four new tops for $22 with tax. Also I am officially down 1 size in shirts and 1 size in pants. I am a 2x in shirts (one was a 1x) and an 18 in pants. At my highest weight, I was a 3x and size 22.

Also cleaning out our storage I found a few gift cards from Walmart. I have a little over $5 combined.

    Do you have a playpen or anything you could put her into in/near the shed so you can keep an eye on her while you go through stuff? I can think of a ton of things that would make that not work, but just tossing the idea out there. :D

    As one who has moved 34 times, with and without hubby and with and without children, please know I understand!!! The stress will get you no where, hon. Simply make a game plan, day by day, enjoy your little one ... and you may even find a routine without hubby at home. And, yes, mine worked an hour away for a time -- with a newborn and a 1 yr. old.

    You can do it!!!! :)

    PS Stress doesn't have to be in the equation ... kick it to the curb. Hang in there.
