Friday Ramble

Doctors should operate more like HVAC mechanics. When I call to get my air conditioner fixed and they come out to fix it and then it breaks again within 24 hours, they don’t charge me to fix it again.  (I should note that I have a home warranty and perhaps that’s why they don’t charge […]

Enunciate, please.

Last night, J woke up in the middle of the night. First, he called for a different pacifier. Then he called for more milk. Then, he started saying something on repeat that sounded almost exactly as though he were saying “F_CK.” I listened closer. Still sounded like that.  I took the pacifier out of his […]

Somebody’s Got a Bad Case of the Mondays…

I’m tired. And I don’t mean in a “I haven’t slept in weeks” kind of way, although that is true, too. I mean that I’m just… tired. I feel totally run down and out of shape and just, well… tired. I feel spent. Like every ounce of energy I ever had in my life has […]

To Sleep perchance to… Sleep

I need sleep. Like yesterday. This move has taken every sleep “skill” that J had (and lets face it… he didn’t have many) and thrown them into a fiery pit of despair. He wakes up every hour. Sometimes twice an hour. And lest you tell me to Sleep Train, or Sleep Shuffle, or Cry it […]

There’s No Earthly Way of Knowing… What Direction We are Goooooing

The world looks different when you aren’t sleeping. Honest. I don’t suggest you try it, but if you’d like to know what I’m talking about, just stay awake for several days. Everything starts to take on a bit of a technicolor sheen… like you just stepped out of your house and into Oz. Green is […]

Rambling On and On (and on…)

This weekend marked the end of a mini-era. On Saturday morning I packed up tiny shirts and pants, a bouncy seat, a jumperoo, a bazillion and three swaddle blankets, two tiny pair of shoes, a coat that looks like a teddy bear, and three play mats for infants. I packed them up in several big […]

Is this Monday? Again?

I say this sort of in jest but also not. My son better have an ear infection or I swear to you… I may auction him off on ebay. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t want him to be sick. I just want a reason for why he is suddenly incapable of sleeping longer than […]

Please send Sleep Fairy ASAP

If I were to write the actual post that’s in my head today, it would consist of one word. That word would be in all caps, bold, and underlined. And in really large font. What is that word? I’ll give you a hint… it starts with F and ends with the last three letters of […]

The one where I’m kicking myself for semi-bragging on J’s sleep habits…

I jinxed myself. I mean, that’s really the only possible answer to what happened to me yesterday. It was really a less than stellar Mother’s Day on all fronts. I didn’t get anything… not even a card, but I knew that going in. Husband and I are on a tight budget to try and pay […]

I Said I Never Would…

I let my son cry last night. I have sworn up, down and sideways that I would NEVER let him “cry it out” because I can’t stand the sound of him crying. I still feel that way… only I did it. For the past, oh three months or so, he’s been waking up on average […]

  • I'm a divorced, single mom to a pre-schooler, a full-time attorney, and a semi-reluctant vegetarian. I work hard and when given the chance, I play hard... but I'm almost never given the chance.

    It's possible that I never outgrew 7th grade mentality, as I still laugh when anyone says anything that can be remotely construed as sexual. Let's face it, if you're not down with "That's what s/he said" at the end of almost any sentence, we're probably not going to get along all that well.

    I drink more than I should, I run more than I should, and I laugh as much as I can. So I'm pretty much winning at life.
