Catching Up… Again

I feel like I was finally catching up on things when we went out of town for a few days. We had such a great trip visiting family and friends it was hard to come back! I was able to post my Fishing Fridays because I had great reception at my Grandparents’ Lake House, but once we got to my Mother In-Law’s house, my reception was in and out. The internet stuff wasn’t going so well for me! So I ended up not being able to do much! Now we’re home again, and already loaded with doctor appointments and other things, but I’m going to work hard to catch up again! I haven’t been sleeping well the past few nights, which doesn’t help! I think it’s a combination of nerves knowing my husband’s Medical Retirement from the military is getting closer to the end and planning what we’ll do and where we’ll be moving after. We looked at houses while we were over in the Houston area as well, so I think that made it feel more “real.” Are we really going to be “settling” soon? We may end up having to rent for a little bit until we can get the VA loan, so it still won’t exactly feel like “settling,” so I do hope we’re able to pull some things together to make buying a house a possibility sooner! Even before my husband was in the military we moved at least once a year – sometimes more! Even though we were at his last duty station for 3 years we lived in 3 different homes! The longest we have ever lived in the same house/apartment/duplex is one year and a few months. Moving is EXHAUSTING – especially when you have kids and pets! I know many people in the military that do DITY moves (you move yourself), and we had to do that twice, and I don’t know how people can do that for every move! Sure, we had a few issues when the military moved us, and it was still somewhat exhausting, but SO much easier!! I know for sure if we could go straight to buying a home that would be such an amazing blessing!!

Well, I’m off to the littlest guy’s sleep study consult! It’s been a long time coming, right? haha I’m still curious how the actual sleep study will be done since he basically can’t fall asleep most of the time without nursing. I’m definitely curious what they will discover and I pray there will actually be an answer to his sleep concerns and he will begin to sleep well! Not only for my sake (because after 2 1/2 years of getting up every 2-3 hours I’m exhausted) but also for his because I think he will feel so much better, will be able to handle his sensory concerns better, will start to speak better, etc. I think everything will improve if he gets better sleep! We’ll see how it all goes!
