October has been a crazy month. Gwen has been sick and I have had a lot of work today. I dont' think I mentioned that I am back to work part-time at my old job. I started back in the middle of August. I am helping out while the graphic designer is out on medical leave. It is great to be back, but also very crazy. I get to do most of my work at home and go in two mornings a week to do printing and meet with staff. I also started doing freelance graphic design work for the hotel my husband works for. And on top of that we also have had several photography jobs.
I do enjoy being busy and having more of a schedule, but it is beginning to wear on both Gwen and I. Her schedule is off. She is not napping and she has become an even more fussier eater. I know sleeping and eating issues are normal at this age, but it still leads to a lot frustrations on both parts.
We also have been cooped up the last couple of weeks because she has been sick. Result - a very restless two year old! She has energy to burn and then some. I actually did take he into the office yesterday for a couple hours and low and behold she took a nap when we got home. She needs to be active and social. I blame her father for that :)
In the little bit of downtime I have been getting, I have been immersing myself in Tudor/Elizabethan English history. It is so fascinating. Who needs fictional stories when these real life ones are so fantastic.
I have been reading several blogs on the subject:
Aside from the lack of hygiene, sanitation and antibiotics, I would love to have lived in such a time. Well, if I was a noble with the fancy dresses and lovely jewelry.
Time to return to the present and get my day started.
Have a great day!
