A Weekend Of Nothing

My weekend was uneventful. Scott and I pretty much stayed locked up indoors and did nothing. On Friday night we got in bed at 9:00. I was out by 9:30 and didn't wake up until 7:00 the next morning. It felt amazing! I should go to bed at 9:00 every night. Even if I tried I couldn't. My insomnia has come back and it's super sad. It takes me about an hour and a half to fall asleep now and it's so annoying. I miss when I was pregnant and all I had to do to fall asleep was close my eyes.
The lazy weekend was kind of nice but by Sunday evening I was going a little stir crazy. I decided to get out for a little bit and escape to Target. Target is my go-to escape place. It would have been nice if we had gone to church on Sunday but Scott and I are at a loss as to how we can go to church these days. At first it worked out great because Campbell slept through the entire service. Then he stopped sleeping during the service and fussed the whole time. Scott and I had to take turns walking out with him. Now, both church services are right in the middle of his nap time. How do you make it work? We both really miss church and want to be able to go. I've even gotten comfortable with the idea of leaving him in the nursery now. I guess the obvious answer is to just wake him up early from his nap but then he'd be off for the whole rest of the day and that would be really frustrating. Hmm.....what to do??
It took us 4 days but we finally got Campbell, and ourselves, adjusted to his new schedule. Thanks to all of you who offered some advice! I don't know why but I always get so much anxiety when we have a change with Campbell. I think the early days of the non-stop crying and zero sleep have scarred me. I'm terrified of going back to that! I've got to learn to just chill and relax. It always works itself out and I always make it way more complicated than it is.
Campbell has a toy bin in his room and it just tortures the girls. They don't understand why they can't have his toys. After about 5 months of asking for this colorful fella, I finally gave in. Now if I would only let them have his Wubbanubs and pacifiers, they would be all set.
