All of my countdown intentions never really panned out. Family getting sick over and over really stood in the way of me having enough time to sit down and blog. No matter. Tomorrow we leave for our trip. I'm so excited!!!!!!!Aaaaaaaahhhhhh!!!!!!!I have about 4 hours to sleep. I have to be up at 4 a.m. and ready to go out the door by 4:30. Boy oh boy, I'm going to be worn out tomorrow. Will fill you all in on how vacation went after I get back.!


For some reason Allee cries EVERY SINGLE NIGHT at about 3am. If she hasn't, it's been a treat. Ugh. I wonder why she has such a problem sleeping. I usually let her cry it out. I know that is not for everyone, but she consistently has no real 'needs' that have really brought me to feel like she must be taken out if bed each night. The many times I have given in and gotten her are just like "Oh! Hey Mom! Time to play!"I just can't keep up giving her that. I struggle to function if my mornings start that early for no important reason.  So here I am. Listening for her cries. She has been off and on for almost an hour. Just enough to wake me, but stops for breaks. She then repeats it. Right now she is asleep again.Good right?Sure. Only prob is that I am now wired, frustrated, emotional and stressed. Not to mention I can't fall asleep because I keep hearing imaginary cries!The part that stinks is that I have work in 2 hrs. :(Aaaaaaarrrrrrrrrggggghhhhh!!! We…

How was my 1st day?

I really enjoyed it. It was a lot of hard work, but it was very gratifying to know that I was able to do a good job in front of my boss. She was the one who trained me today instead of the other lady who does the same thing I do.Anyway, I'm not going to really get into a whole lot of it. Suffice it to say I just feel good about the decision to get something part time. I'm looking forward to the little bit of money that I can accumulate before my vacation. It's exciting to know that I at least made a little bit of cash that I can use for souvenirs.I know this totally sounds lame, but I really need to get to bed. 10:30 is staying up late now!

Ugh.... I dropped the ball.

You know how I totally planned on blogging daily for my last 30 days of counting down to my vacation? Yeah. I think I've blogged three times. We are currently at 17 days until our vacation time and I just have not been motivated to post everyday. I think since the time I last posted we have had another cycle of stomach virus through our house and Elena had the Flu. We are all recovered, but it eats up my energy when things get like that. The first things to go of course are things I would do with more energy. Unfortunately, blogging falls under that list.Yep. So here I am. Trying to pick back up where I started. So let's get to it shall we?What is another thing I look forward to I visit Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure?I look forward to doing is going on the two Harry Potter park rides. I rode the one in Hogsmeade back in 2011 when we vacationed there, but I have yet to see anything in Diagon Alley. I hear the ride there is amazing. I so look forward to experiencing …
