Ok - little one finally fell asleep around 11 pm last night - grrr. It wouldn't be so bad if my alarm didn't start going off at 4 am. After eight weeks now of this, it's getting pretty old. I actually had two decent nights of sleep before last night... but it seems like I'll never feel like myself again.
Count down continues it's 8 months until my eldest finishes high school. Once he graduates, we can consider moving!!!!
I've got to make some decisions.
Do I move to Des Moines and pay more for house and daycare and less for gas/transportation so I can sleep in? I know I can make more money in Des Moines than in Cedar Rapids/Dubuque/Iowa City/Davenport...
Do I find work closer to my family?
Do I rent a place so I don't have to worry about long term committment? But renting can get really expensive. But, then again, so can buying!
All I know is that sleep would be a very good thing to get to enjoy again. My little 'episodes' were a little better yesterday, I only remember one episode - about a half hour long and it was milder than any I've had so far. The numbness didn't spread so far, and the pins & needles weren't as intense. I've already had a 45 minute one this morning and it was a pretty strong one. I just wonder if I just need more sleep and this will all be in the past. After all, I didn't start having episodes until after I'd gone about six weeks with little to no sleep. I wonder if lack of sleep can trigger 'migraines' or whatever these little episodes are?
