The past few weeks have been filled with tons of life changes for the Hipster Household.
Sawyer started preschool. Mr. Hipster went back to work for the school year. I starred in my first burlesque student showcase. I wrapped up my latest group HypnoBirthing classes.
All of these things have been both awesome and awful. Sawyer isn’t having the easiest time adjusting to school. He’s so tired from the 2.5 hours he’s there that he cries most of the afternoon and then he just crashes by 8pm (and now wakes up at 6am, what.the.hell.) He’s been telling his teachers he doesn’t know how to write his name (he does). That he can’t count (he can count to 50 easily and 100 with a little help). He isn’t being defiant or unruly, he’s just freezing up. We’ve really been working on building up his confidence, because he is so, so bright, but also very, very anxious (just like mama).
I’m exploring a couple of new avenues in my job and seeing where things go. I am trying to open myself up to as many possibilities as I can, but it’s so scary.
Also, my anxiety has been through the freaking roof. Which is why I haven’t posted, In fact, this is the 8th time I’ve tried to write this. I’m getting overwhelmed, in my own head, and freaking out. Luckily, I know that this is temporary, and I have a decent handle on it. I know that I need to get back to healthy eating, exercise, and rest. I’ve really fallen off the wagon the last few weeks and it is showing. I feel AWFUL. I’m exhausted, my skin is red and itchy, I’m bloated, getting migraines, and just generally feeling restless.
I am also trying to figure out the direction of this blog. I figured that once Sawyer got older, I would have another kid to write about all of the baby things all over again. So far, that hasn’t happened, and I’m trying to decide what my focus will be from here on out.
What do you want to see me write about? Also, how the hell can I get my skin to stop being so red? I have eczema and dermatitis. Nothing works, I’ve eliminated things from my diet, used steroids, Cetaphil, coconut oil, calendula, nothing works. Hit me up with your best ideas!
