learning to navigate the world, j-bear style

So Tired

I am soooo tired. I could nap all day, then maybe eat something, then sleep all night.

Part of the problem is quality of sleep. You see, I sleep with J-bear. He won’t go to sleep without a human to hug him. It’s frustrating, it’s likely a reason to ridicule me for some but if the household is going to sleep J has to sleep with me.

Only lately, I’ve not been sleeping.

The cast is the likely issue here. He moves and shakes like there’s no tomorrow when he sleeps. He’s all over the bed, to the point of trying to pitch himself out of the bed and once succeeding at that. It’s hard to get comfortable, I get that, but try being the other body in a bed that seems increasingly too small for his antics. I feel like I am settling in for war every night!

I sleep on this sliver of the bed  hoping he doesn’t kick me out. It’s obnoxious but it’s all I’ve got right now.

School starts in two weeks and I am hoping that, what with the cast coming off and routines changing, that he can be transitioned into his own sorely unused bed. His room looks like a crazy storage closet due to the fact it’s never used for him. His clothes just happened to be stored there. I really want to see that changed and get him using it again and get it ready for his eventual dog to come live there too.

It would also be nice to sleep again.

Oh how big I dream.

    I feel so sorry for you both! I had a cast on my leg several years ago, and it DROVE ME CRAZY! I stopped complaining, because everyone thought the cast was a minor inconvenience, but it was a major inconvenience when I tried to sleep — I hope it comes off J VERY SOON! I think you’re doing exactly what you have to do, but, still, when you start the day exhausted, its very hard. Once the cast comes off, and J gets into a school routine, I’m sure you both will be a little more rested — until then…. I just feel bad for both of you.

      The cast comes off Monday! We can’t wait! It’s getting pretty grungy no matter how much we wash it so it will be nice to see it gone. I think if he naps late today like usual I am going to drag his little monkey bottom to a waterpark (either an actual one or the local wading pool, I haven’t decided!) and tire him out GOOD. He’ll love it.
