Health wise - I just do not seem to be able to get on top of it. I know - self-love and time. My energy is very low, but it has been a very gray winter for us and I am a sun needer! Living in an area that most days are sunny - having 3 weeks of gray is getting to me. There was a little sun yesterday, but I slept most of it after the weekend I had.
I have ended up NOT keeping my nephew. He had epic meltdowns and I just don't have the energy to deal with them. They are BAD! He hits my sister, kicks her - calls her names, is belligerent...It is really bad and he is only 4. I think there may be something wrong with him, but she is in denial. She is not parenting correctly either, but I don't know if there is a right way - I really think something is wrong. When I say she is parenting wrong - she offers treats (like a new toy) if he behaves, he doesn't, she gives him 20+ chances, then he still gets the treat. So, I don't know if this is a learned pattern, or he has issues (I say issues because they run on my sister's side and her husband's side - bi-polar, personality disorder, etc) My sister and I have different fathers.
Anyway, it was just best if he went back with them this time. We will do it another time.
So, yesterday, I was so exhausted about dealing with them the whole weekend and those fits - plus getting up at 5:30 daily and not getting to sleep until after midnight, that I was literally walking through my room to get something, fell in the bed and fell asleep on top of the sheets and blankets. I sort of woke up at some point, and slid inside, then proceeded to sleep for 4 hours. I went to bed on time and slept all night. I was truly exhausted.
I am slow this morning, but mainly because I have nothing slated to do, so I am going easy. I do need to run to the bank and library, but other than that, I am not sure what the day will bring. If it is not raining this afternoon, I think I will go for a walk.
Have a great day!
