Quick Update

Hi. I promise I haven't been crying all this time. Just sometimes. Like when I'm covered in bodily fluids of some kind—usually not my own. Just FYI.

Happy Father's Day, dads.

Kleenex Are the New Black

Perhaps related to the sleep deprivation, or perhaps REALLY related to the sleep deprivation, I've been a bit weepy lately. Sometimes it's apropos of nothing, sometimes it's apropos of everything in my life feeling like it's falling apart—by which I mean I dripped my soaking-wet-from-the-shower-I'm-not-done-with wetness all over the two-year-old and her pile of blankets and pillows and books in the bathroom (because, yeah, she needed to take a pretend nap right next to me while I showered—cute, right? I know—I'm a terrible person for finding it a smidge suffocating!) when I had to get out of said shower to replace the crying baby's binkie because the two-year-old chose that moment to behave like a two-year-old and refused to do the binkie replacement upon request, and I might have gotten snappy and then I might have felt bad—and annoyed—and bad. So, yeah, crying. Been doing some of that around here.

Today I cried because I couldn't figure out what to do with my 43 WHOLE MINUTES of free/work time after getting the kids and the babysitter settled and before having to nurse the baby. I know, I'll spend it holed up in my office going through kleenex like they're going out of style! Productive! Gratifying! Well worth the money! Whoops—gotta go!

Sleep Deprivation

Holy shit, it's June. And not June 1 or 2 but June 8—how the hell did that happen? Where was I? What was I doing? Was it the middle of the night? Did I text you about it? What did I say? Was it coherent? Should I really even be driving this thing?
