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 :)
Just Brody - It is amazing to see the progress that he has made over the last two years. While we were there last visit, he put on his shoes and went to the restroom......
