hi y'all! It's been forever so I am cross-posting from the TTC/preggo/PP thread. Filter out any stuff you find boring haha:
well hello everyone! I know it's been a long time. I've been crazed the past two months. Let's see... first two weeks of August, 2 week road trip just me and P. 8/27 was Ps 1st bday so we had lots of family and craziness. 8/29 - first day (sort of - orientation) of PhD program. 5 days in Chicago over Labor Day weekend for a wedding. That was fun/insane/exhausting. Got back latelatelate Labor Day night and then my first day of classes was Wednesday 9/6. 9/14 we moved. So insane madness for the time between coming back from Chicago and moving. Still in the midst of unpacking and getting acclimated insanity. UGH. Moving is terrible. I told A we're not moving again until the child(ren) is/are out of college. UGH. PhD program is awesome but SO much work. As I wanted it to be. it's a whole different ballgame, though, with a toddler in the game. Speaking of toddling, she really started to walk at about 12.5 months, and is now all over the place. OMG I have a walker! It's nuts.
I'm trying to get back into running... ran a lovely 5.5 on Saturday and ran 4 miles on trails this morning. May do a couple more in the hour when we are waiting for Daddy to get home from work and post-childcare. Our new house is a 3 min jog from, in my opinion, the best running in my area. It's so beautiful.
Moving sucks. Change sucks. It's all to the good, but I've been struggling this month (well, September). Going to the psychiatrist next week to rejig my meds, which I'm hoping will help. Too much crying/irritability/snappiness/existential despair is not good for anyone! And I certainly don't want it to affect P.
Other stuff re: P - sleep sucks. Hahaha. Oh well. We do what we can. I don't have my shit together enough to do anything approaching anything systematic. Oh well. We're also TTC which is hilarious. Anyway, HI EVERYONE I'M INSANE
