Sophie’s doing much better but is still very whiny and clingy. Today, except for two brief naps, she never let me get more than a foot away from her without breaking into a wail. It has been very exhausting. Or maybe I’m coming down with something. My energy level has just been so low the last few days.
I had a huge list of things I wanted to get done around the house and almost none of them were accomplished. Progress in settling in is going so slowly. But Dom did get a shelf put up in the laundry room, above the chest freezer, which allowed us to move all the bottles of oil and vinegars and spices that didn’t fit into the cupboard by the stove off of the kitchen table, clearing up one unsightly mess. And we installed a shelf in our bedroom closet today which will allow me to make some more progress in cleaning up our room when I have a few minutes to myself. Though as Sophie naps in our room, that will have to happen while she’s happy enough for me to be unattached from her side.
I’ve got several more book reviews to post, but just don’t have the time or energy to write them. Right now I guess I’m learning patience and baby steps. I’m sure God has his reasons for all of this, even if it seems completely frustrating from my limited perspective.
