I can’t find a restaurant to go to for my birthday. My criteria are: kid-friendly, takes reservations, not the same place we always go. Apparently, Minnesota has no restaurants in this category. None.
I listen to podcasts at work to help pass the time. Both NPR and the BBC have recently published several broadcasts about sleep studies. Apparently, insufficient sleep makes one stupid and fat. Fellow parents, that information is both useful and comforting, is it not?
It is going to snow on my birthday. [Insert weeping and nashing of teeth.] Am tired of winter, please to make it stop.
Raisin seems to have inherited my freakish fish allergy. She’s never had a problem before, but today’s fish sticks caused her to spend the last 2 hours groaning and saying she needed to throw up. That’s lovely.
*Yup. Life in suburban, white, middle-class America is just tough. At least, compared to suburban, white, UPPER-middle-class America.
