The last 2 weeks have been hectic. Most of this time she couldn't go with me due to the heat, the places I went she couldn't be there or I was going to have to be waiting and she can't play 'cause there is no place. I have spent most of my time in the car going from home to everywhere it seems like and there were NO doctors appts involved in this travel. We had sports practices, games, and the 13yr old boy had his firt therapy session (I guess I did have a dr in there), I had to do a lot of running trying to get my medical insurance begun, I've been without for about 18 months now. Both weeks on Wednesday I had to be 2 places at the same time. First Wednesday went to point A dropped off kid #1, going to point B to drop off kid #2 takes an hour, on the way back to point A to pick up kid #1 I got a flat tire on the on ramp to the Hwy. I called DH told what was going on, he got a friend to go get kid #1 then come out and get me/or fix the tire if possible. I didn't know if I had a spare or a jack and I am usually good about knowing that stuff (duh!) Now I've got Lina with me and she is worried and getting anxious about us getting help. I got soooooooo lucky there were train tracks behind us and she got to see a lot of different kinds of trains go by but in between she would show that her anxiety was rising. When my van was fixed I sent her and kid #1 home with friend. Week 2 was just as bad. Wednesday again I had to be 2 places at the same time but I was able to get my DIL to take kid #2 to her volleyball game where she could leave her with the coach until I got there to get her. That day I left my house at 1:30pm and didn't get home until 10pm.
During these 2 weeks trying to get her to sleep has been a nightmare, she won't go to sleep for a couple of hours after putting her in bed and I have to constantly tell her to go to sleep. She has her toddler bed in our room for a variety of reasons but she won't even go in there for more than 30 minutes with out me even to watch her cartoons at night. She has never been able to go to sleep unless I am in the bedroom with her. She is right now sitting in front of me on the floor watching a movie which is highly unusual for her, and it isn't a cartoon movie, she has the attention span long enough to watch one cartoon show at a time not a movie. She has been rubbing the hem or sleeve of my shirt between her fingers, or is trying to get in my face, constantly asking me if I have to go somewhere, what am I going to do. She has become irritating, anxious & won't let anyone do anything for her but me. Today I haven't even gotten dressed I am so burnt out from the last 2 weeks.
Things should be getting better as only kid #1 will have any sports related things going on. I am going to have to figure out a travel package, & plan so that she can go with me. I don't think I can handle another 2 weeks like the last with out killing her (not really).
