Family Day

Todd's nephew graduated this year so we spent yesterday at his reception. Somehow I only ended up with a couple of pics of him and a ton of Laney. She knows I'm that crazy woman with the camera that she can see herself in. As soon as I walked through the door she was on me wanting to see "Laney a-gain!"

C. goes to the orthodontist today to start his long journey towards straight teeth. I guess today he will get the appliance to spread his palette. Poor kid. He keeps asking me what they are going to do and if it will hurt. I am not the person to ask about the dentist. I've never had a bad experience yet I still anxiety sweeps over me just thinking about it. ACK!!! His dad is taking him to the first one so he doesn't succumb to a terrible case of "mommy's boy". Hopefully it will go well for him.

Orthodontist Take II

This morning the big boy goes back to the orthodontist. The kid is just dragging and mama's not real alert either.

Last night he had a ballgame quite a distance from home. He didn't want to go since he has a cold and he knew he'd be getting up at 6 this morning. I told him if he missed the game, they'd give his position to someone else. Wouldn't ya know, we drive over there and the coach changed his position anyway. I was incredibly disappointed in the way C. handled it. He is usually a mellow kid but last night he got a little lippy. First time in all the years of baseball that I've had to go to the dugout and get onto my own kid. Hopefully it will be the last.

We didn't get home from that until after 10 so we're all tired and he's coughing his head off this morning. Better go dump some medicine into him and get him ready for whatever happens on the 2nd ortho visit.

What do you do when you can't sleep?

I've been seeing lots of media reference to the "lazy days of summer" and I wonder, do adults get that? I can't even get lazy nights. I crawl into bed just exhausted and as soon as my head hits the pillow, my brain finally engages and it will not stop. I've tried relaxation breathing, reading a book, taking a sleep aid, etc. It's getting hard to function which is frustrating and in turn feeds the problem.

I found a website about early menopause; more specifically, the insomnia that can accompany it. I have tried all of the tips listed there except the put on socks suggestion. I dont like socks when I'm awake let alone when I'm sleeping.

I miss being 20

When I was 20, I could sleep 12 hours straight. This 4AM crap is just ridiculous.
