Much happier today

For no particular good reason that I can think of, I'm much happier today than when I wrote that previous post. Indeed, I have every reason to be in an extremely crappy mood. Quinn woke up at 2 am this morning and did not go back to sleep until about 7 am or so. At around 5 am I took him for a drive and got him to sleep, but the transfer back to the crib failed and he woke up again. I managed to sleep a little bit in the morning when he finally slept, but I'm completely sleep deprived. And I had to take him to an ear doctor appointment this morning (it went fine; his left tube is a little encrusted but I got some drops that should take care of it) and then drop him off at school before coming to work.

And the difficult work situation I'm in is still going. But I'm just much happier. Maybe my rant let out a lot of bad energy that needed to get out. Or maybe it was something hormonal. When he woke up at 2 am, I was sleepy and thinking "aw, crap", but it wasn't the crazy feeling of helpless rage that I was having before.

I am thankful, thankful, thankful for my new-found serenity. May it last!

And for the record, I am not now nor have I ever been searching for an actual mistress. Sarah is my one and only :)

Your sleep issues sound like hell compaired to mine. I am terrified of having to move to the "big girl" car seat, because I won't be able to carry it upstairs and keep her asleep anymore. Glad you are feeling better.

Wow. Could you please send some of that serenity this way? PLEASE??!! I'll whine about it if I have to!

If I could mass manufacture and package serenity, I would certainly make some available to you. I'd also sell it on the mass market and make bajillions of dollars. Of course, if I had that much serenity, I probably wouldn't even need bajillions of dollars.

Vicki: Heh heh. Keep some novels in your car, get some books on CD, and learn the location of every drive-through business near your house.
