moi? and 365/73

So last week Christina at Mrs. Broccoli Guy  gave me this:

{Oooh, its pretty! and does this count as a picture? yes, yes it must, since I had to save it to my computer as a picture}

Thanks Christina!

So the rules for this award are:

1. Pick 15 bloggers to pass the award on to.
2. Share seven things about yourself.

So here are 15 blogs that are in my google reader. Some are bigger blogs, with loads of readers, that I’ve never even commented on. Some are little, like mine. Some are girls that I know in real life (although I have other friends who have blogs that I love and I can’t link to them here just in case they wouldn’t like it). Some are blogs of moms that have adopted kids from Vietnam, some are just plain mom blogs, some I like to think of as DIY blogs. Some of them make me laugh, some of them make me cry, and from all of them I learn. Here they are, in no particular order:

And here’s your 7 things:

  1. Tonight Emmett and I had our first meeting with our infant mental health specialist (for help with attachment issues). So the therapist tells me “oh, I’m so happy to work with a family that isn’t required by the courts to do this therapy”. Lovely.
  2. Having attachment issues with your kid is no fun. Really not.
  3. My back hurts. And has been for a couple of weeks. I’m trying not to worry about it. Really trying.
  4. Now that I’ve quit breastfeeding, I should probably talk to my doctor about adding in another drug for anxiety.
  5. Oh, but I don’t want to go to the doctor. We’re pretty busy here. I think Emmett has 8 therapy appointments this week.
  6. I miss my husband. We’ve been like ships passing through the night over the past month, between me going to Madison and then him leaving town and then me going to San Antonio and then him in town but working crazy long hours.
  7. Does this happen to any of you – when I only get to see my husband fleetingly, it makes me really cranky with him instead of super sweet. I hate that.

And if I linked to you, I’d love for you to pass this award on, but I totally understand if you don’t. Because you don’t have time. Or don’t feel like it. Or have 50 million comments for every post and never even read this 🙂

  1. I hear you about attachment. It sucks. Just when I think we’re finally at smooth sailing, we take a big step back. It’s such a constant battle. I wasn’t prepared for that. I hope the therapist helps.

    My hubby has back issues & the one thing that he’s found to work is a little bit of physical therapy (I know, just what you need, more therapy) & an exercise ball. If he does his exercises consistently, he walks normally. If not, he looks just like his dad & that is not a good look for someone who isn’t 80.

      Hmmm, seeing your husband??? Is this something people really do??? Or is it a myth, like unicorns, big foot, children who clean their rooms……
      I’m feeling you sweetie! This last tdy, I was definitely more sour than sweet with poor Jason (although he mostly deserved it!!!).
      It’s part of being human, or crazy, I’m not sure which! Just hang in there and remember YOU ARE NOT ALONE :)! There’s lots of us out there. I just hope the guys can remember that the crankiness comes from missing them and juggling everything else in life!
      Love and miss you guys!
      Oh, and I’m glad you read my blog – hopefully it makes you laugh a little!

    Oh hooray, a whole bunch of new blogs for me to check out!! 🙂

    I’m glad you are getting help with the attachment stuff. And in case no one has told you in the last five minutes, you are a really good mom. I know (first hand experience) it doesn’t always feel like it, especially with the attachment issues, but being willing to make the effort is a really big deal.

    Eight appointments in one week? egads. I think you have every right to be cranky.

  3. Why thank you! I think you’re just groovy too!
