Life threw us a curveball

Life doesn't always go as you planned..

Things come up that throw off all your plans, especially when you add a new home and baby to the mix.

On Saturday we had plans to head to the dirty Jerz to visit some of the hubs college friends who live in Hoboken and Rutherford. We hadn't seen a few of them for awhile and one happens to expecting a little bundle of joy come June. So Friday night we had a relaxing night at home and put S to sleep around 8. She fell asleep quickly but woke up around 10 shrieking and hollering like hell. Nothing would calm her down. Not milk, not rocking, not rubbing her back, none of my usual tricks. We were so desperate around midnight that we put her in the car and drove around, which is something we've never had to do in the last 15 months. 

It didn't work. She finally fell back asleep around 1 am but was back up to party from 2-4. Needless to say, we were both exhausted & cranky when we woke up Saturday morning. Not only were we tired..but we were freezing. The heat had stopped working and our house was at a chilly 59 degrees. We layered ourselves with sweatshirts & vests until the serviceman finally arrived around noon. We ended up paying a ton of $$ for about 20 minutes of service and a new ignition switch. The joys of home ownership.

Needless to say we didn't get to NJ. Instead we spent the rest of the day taking naps and checking out bed skirts. And for Saige and her sleep? Damn you molars. You're lucky you're cute.

I honestly do know how you feel! I have had some sleep issues with my 2 year old lately. I hope that it was only a fluke!

that has happened to our heater a time or two but luckily we have a home owners plus program offered through our gas company and we pay $35 extra a month to have coverage on all of our appliances, washer/dryer, heater/air conditioner and even our grill is covered ;) haha! the extra $35 a month is so worth it, i've used their services multiple times and it's always FREE when they come!
when it comes to sleep, i don't even know what that is anymore ;) hope your little one
