I keep writing down post ideas, but then I never actually post them. In lieu of actual interesting content, will you accept a list of excuses? I thought not, but here they are anyway.
-I worked 35 hours last week. The next 2 weeks are much better, but they keep scheduling me until 11:30 or midnight. I said less than 30 hours, and no later than 11, but I guess they’re asking everyone to put in more time for the holidays. They appreciate my flexibility. I am looking for something else.
-Apple keeps throwing up in his crib at night. None of our theories thus far has panned out, so I am starting a journal to look for patterns. And living in fear that he will choke on his own vomit, because he doesn’t cry after he throws up, and sometimes we don’t know about it until morning.
-Apple and Raisin have coughs at night too. (Yes, I have considered the possibility that the coughing is related to the throwing-up, but he does not seem to cough to excess right before he throws up, so that is not the whole story.)
-I am not getting much sleep.
-I have developed a caffeine habit, and right now my hands are shaking a teeny bit as I type. That is probably not a good sign.
-My house is a mess, I have masses of vomit-y laundry to do, and I haven’t showered yet today.
Please send tequila. Thank you.
