Dude...I don't know about this Trazodone. The past week I have been miraculously going to bed early. I think it's because I was pretty much forced to for a few days on that trip so my body got used to it. I'm sure I fucked it up today though. I took Trazodone last night and fell asleep a little before 11:30. I briefly woke up to get Evan ready for school while Jenny fed Ella. I was still tired and groggy so I told Jenny I was going to go to work late. She let me go back to sleep and took Evan to school. I usually take him on my way to work. Well...I slept through work. I didn't wake up until 3:30! Jenny told me she tried to wake me up at about 11:00 to go to work. I have no recollection of that whatsoever. That shit knocked me the fuck out. Now I remember why I quit taking it shortly after it was prescribed years ago. Yeah, it keeps me asleep, but it keeps me asleep all day. I'm going to keep taking it for a few days to see if that effect wears off. If it doesn't I'm going to have to stop taking it. I don't have the luxury of sleeping for half a day everyday. Even if I did, that wouldn't be good for me. Maybe I can just reset my sleep schedule and then quit taking it. I don't know. We'll see.

I'm still not used to this phone. I can't decide how I feel about it. It's really nice, but I'm just so used to the iPhone. It's going to take a while to get used to it. Evan told me he likes my iPhone better haha. That's just because he knows how to use it. And he's mad about losing progress on his games and having to start over.

Oh, some Evan news that he's super excited about. He's in the advanced reading group in his class. It's just him and three other kids in that group. They have these little sets of books, and he came home SO excited because his group gets to skip ahead a whole set, which is eight books. So his group is a full level ahead of the rest of the class. He's funny. He came home really excited and bragged about it. We let him have his bragging moment and told him we were proud of him, but then told him he can't brag to the other kids about it, because bragging might make them feel bad. He seemed to understand that and said he wouldn't, so I hope he won't. I don't think he will though...he's really considerate of other people's feelings. So I don't think he'll brag since we told him that bragging could hurt people's feelings. He's a really sweet kid. I'm really proud of him. I think reading to your kids starting when they're babies is REALLY important. It helps their vocabulary develop. Evan has had an advanced vocabulary basically since he started talking. He said his first word ("Dada" :) ) at six months, and was speaking full sentences before he was a year and a half old. Regularly. And I taught him how to read when he was three. He has always been a fast learner. Now I'm the one bragging but it's my right as a parent haha.

Man, I have to say, I like the auto correct on my iPhone way more. This one is like...all predictive text auto correct and I have always hated predictive text. So this is going to take some getting used to. I never used to use my phone to update, but I've been using it a lot lately. I don't know why. It's much faster and easier to just use the computer. I guess it will help me get used to typing on this phone though. It's weird how even typing is different on a different phone.

I know I keep saying I'll catch up with you guys, but I haven't yet. Sorry, I've been kind of a shitty LJ friend the past week. I'll change that this weekend. For real this time haha. Ella is finally starting to feel a bit better, so I'll have more time and energy.

New phone!

I still need to reply to stuff and catch up with you guys. Sorry, I have just been really busy with a very sick baby. We took her to the doctor yesterday, and she has an ear infection and an eye infection. I have no idea how she got an eye infection, but she has one. So she's on antibiotics and we have to put eye drops in her eyes. Let me tell you, putting eye drops in a baby's eyes is not very easy. She hates it and jerks her head. It's a lot easier with two of us, so one of us can hold her and the other can put the drops in her eyes. She seriously hates it. Plus she's teething right now. Her poor little gums are so red where her tooth is trying to come in. I feel bad for her. It's hard on Jenny and me, but I think the hardest part is seeing her so miserable and not being able to do much for her. It's sad. So yeah...taking care of Ella is taking up A LOT of time and energy right now.

I got a new phone today! I'm pretty stoked about it. I got the Samsung Galaxy SIII. I have always used iPhones, but I know a lot of people who swear by this phone, so we'll see. So far I like it. It's really big, but it's thin, and surprisingly light. My brother is the one who really talked me into switching to the S3. Him and my best friend Nick. But most of the other people I asked about it recommended this one. It's going to take some getting used to. I need to familiarize myself with it. I'm really excited about it though.

I always spend my money on Jenny and the kids, and not that much on myself. That's by choice. I like being able to buy them things and spoil them a bit. I should probably do less of that and save more, but eh...it's fine. I still save some. But I rarely buy myself stuff. Well, not big things anyway. So I'm super excited about my new phone. I didn't need a new one, but I was eligible for an upgrade, so I just thought hey, why not? I decided I deserved it as a pick me up. It worked. It definitely improved my mood today haha.

I have an appointment with a psychiatrist tomorrow. I think I might wait on the antidepressant thing, but I'm not entirely sure. I want to see what he thinks. But I'm going to get a prescription for Tramadol in hopes that it will help me sleep better. I don't remember if it worked very well for me when I tried it before. I kind of think it didn't. But that was years ago, so I don't know. And it might be different for me now anyway. I need to do something about my sleeping habits. Badly.

I'm going to go play with my new toy (aka phone). This is the first time I've gotten a chance to relax in days. I really hope Ella will stay asleep for a couple hours. We'll see. I'll catch up with and get back to you guys later.

Oh, I forgot to mention: I'm trying to cut back on the Diet Coke. Now I'm allowed to have like 34 to 36 ounces a day, depending on if they're cans or bottles. So that's two bottles or three cans. The bottles I drink are typically 16.9 oz. each, because that's the size they are when you buy a case of them. Cans are 12 oz. So if I mix and match it will be different, but I set a guideline for the approximate amount. That may seem like a lot to some people, but it's not for me!
