We were back at the pediatrician’s office today. Still searching for why Edda is GRUMPY BEAR in the early evening. We poked and prodded and chatted and discussed and really, we found nothing. Came up with no good reason that Edda is unhappy in the evenings. All I know is that I have no idea why she is unhappy. I’m just keeping my fingers crossed that it will someday just go away. I know, I live in the land of denial, it’s what keeps me keeping on.
The past few nights, I have been super diligent about going to sleep before 10 pm. I had gradually let our bedtime slip to 11 pm, which is OK when I am sleeping until 6:30, but with the hot weather and my desire to run in the early morning hours, I’ve been getting up at 5 or 5:30am. Everything looks a lot bleaker when I have only 6 hours of sleep – things that were OK the week before suddenly look terrible and unsolvable. But now with a little more sleep, I feel like I can get a grip on things that are happening (well, at least not overreact to them).
