Turning 29

Jack went down tonight wide awake and put himself to sleep with no crying. Yay!

We're seriously considering finding a new home for Murphy. We really feel like we do not have the ability to train her beyond where she is now. She sleeps in a corner of our bedroom because she'll cry if we put her in her crate and night and that keeps us all awake. But when she sleeps in our room, 9 times out of 10 she pees in the doorway sometime before we wake up. She's also chewed up several of Jack's blankets, sleepers, onesies, burp cloths, etc. I just don't know what to do but our carpet is trashed. I'm at a total loss.

I turn 29 in 1 1/2 hours. It's a little scary to be this close to 30. I'm pretty sure this is the first birthday I've had where I haven't been announcing it to everyone for two weeks leading up to it and marking it on everyone's calendars. I don't think it's because I'm feeling old, but I do think with all of my recent stress I just haven't wanted to think about it.

I'm getting ready for bed and I'm going to have trouble falling asleep because of how messy it is. I've been pretty good about keeping things picked up all summer, but knowing that I'll have plenty of time to do it next week has kept me from staying on top of things.

Our last day of camp is tomorrow and it's bittersweet. I'm excited to be able to spend more time with Jack, but everyone leaving is always a little sad. Only 42 weeks until staff training.

Happy BIRTHDAY!!! :) I guess I was thinking it was the 10th, (because mine's the 10th-(May)-, but I remember celebrating half b'day's with you, so I guess that's why I'm a day behind). Anyway, happy 29th. I totally agree.....29 was the hardest one ever for me....I think it's the fear of the word "30" that really bothers me.....not so much the 29 as the closeness of the next one. It sounds much too grown up for us, doesn't it?? Weren't we just in college? Aren't we still figuring out what we want to do when we grow up?!?! :) Does 30 mean that we're officially "grown up"? If so, I've got a lot of growing to do between now and next May! Anyway, don't feel alone, 29 was hard the day it happened, but I've been doing okay :) It's not so bad after the initial shock. So, Happy Birthday!!! Love, Sarah (D) Vm
