Sleepless Nights


"If people were meant to POP out of bed, we'd all sleep in toasters."  

I'm exhausted.  Cora didn't sleep at all last night. My poor baby (who normally sleeps peacefully through the night) had me up on three or four occasions. She wasn't feeling well at all, and this morning she had a 101 temperature. She's been really restless and uncomfortable all day.  I hate when she doesn't feel good (and I loathe all-nighters) I was so worried about her, even when she was asleep I was wide-eyed, waiting for the next cry.  And of course, Mel had duty so I had no help.... Murphey's Law at its finest.

I just put her down for the night. Let us all hope and pray, for her sake (and mine), that tonight is better and she kicks this little virus' ass while she rests.

So anyway, we reserved the room for Cora's Birthday!  I can't hang anything on the walls with tape or nails or staples or glue (damn them for covering their bases)... this could make decor a small problem. I will overcome though! It will be cute. Only one month away... can you believe it. She's almost A YEAR. Where does it go? Everyone tells you how fast it flies by, but wow... like the blink of an eye.

Great readings! I hope you are going to print all of these out for a little scrapbook type things for her to read when she gets older. I remember pretty vividly laughing my ass off at someones journal...beleive it or not I'm walkin on air, I never thought I could feel so freeee!!!! I will probably never forget the Greatest American Hero theme song because of your brother. Keep the journal up!

Ok "Anonymous"... I remember sitting in my hallway cracking up laughing at my brother's journal, but I can't for the life of me remember who all was reading them with me! So, who are you? Dave? The best way for me to know who's commenting on my journal would be for you to start one of your own, hint hint.
