It's April, Fools!

So, instead of blogging I have been doing all sorts of fun things:

  • Nursing a lovely case of group A streptococcus that I somehow caught despite my hermit-like existence.

  • Thinking about the fact that my baby's second birthday will happen in sixteen days, and despite months of saying, "I'm not going to wait 'til the last minute like last time," I have essentially waited until the last minute to plan things.

  • Being riddled with insomnia when sleep is what I need most right now. Some nights I find the dawn's early light creeping in the windows and realize I am still wide awake and that in just a couple of hours I'm going to have to get up anyway, whether I've slept or not.

  • Watching The Mighty Boosh Seasons 1-3 instead of cleaning or anything else productive.

The excitement is palpable, I know. I did finish the books I mentioned a few posts back. The Time Traveller's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger was surprisingly good. Surprising to me anyway since I usually hate most "best-seller" books.

The other was Darkness Visible by William Golding. I liked it, too. Now I am working on Willa Cather's The Troll Garden, and Other Selected Stories.

Well, that is all for now. Barely worth the trouble of clicking over here, I know. Sorry. I'm sick and not up to snuff, which is really sad since I've sort of set the bar pretty low!

Ah, it's not totally last minute yet! Blame your hubby for being a carrier of diseases. Hope you feel better soon.

Oh man, I hope you get some sleep. You're certainly not alone this winter for strep! Hope you feel better and thanx for the book suggestions!

I am sorry that you are feeling poorly.

I thought the Niffenegger book was particularly good.

Sorry you've been sick. Bummer.

Funny story: when my dogs start whining at me, which they do when they want attention (which is all the time) I throw my hands in the air and go, "The Babies are Groaning!"

You got into my brain.

I liked 'The Time Traveler's Wife' a lot, even though it wasn't exactly a cheerful read!

I just bounced over here and saw your sleep problems (which I get, three kids and anxiety) so I wanted to suggest Melatonin. It works killer.
Good luck :)
