Wow, it's been a while...

Ooops, I hadn't realized how long it's been since I've posted...Things are good here. The summer is passing way too quickly, but Elizabeth and I have been having a lot of fun on the weekends. And next week, we're on vacation- yay!!! Friday night after work, we are driving up to Maine and not coming back until Labor Day. I'm so psyched for a whole week off!!!

Elizabeth is doing great. The girl has more energy than this 42 year old Mama, that's for sure...Especially at bedtime, unfortunately. That's one reason I haven't blogged in so long. Lately, it's been taking her a long time to settle down and go to sleep at night, and so by the time she's finally asleep, it's late, and I'm too tired to do anything but go to bed myself. Often, in fact, I fall asleep with her in her bed, and wake up at like 1am, and crawl off bleary eyes into my own bed. And then at around 4am, Miss E wakes up and comes into my bed, where we both sleep until I have to get up for work. I don't mind her coming into my bed. I have no problem with that at all. What makes me crazy is it taking so long for her to go to sleep initially. Her being awake until sometimes 10 or 10:30 leaves me no time for myself in the evenings. I've thought about cutting her nap, but she still seems to really need it, even if it's just a quick 30 minutes. And all the kids nap at Day Care so I can't take away her nap during the week, anyway.

In other news, I've been looking at apartments this weekend, and found one that might work for us. We've been staying at my parents' condo all summer, but we will need our own place this fall when they return from Maine in October.

I guess that's all for now. 5 more days til vacay :)

Good luck finding a new apartment! And bedtime, it's the bane of my life. I always feel frazzled by the time my kids are asleep.
