New day

I'm watching the sun come up.

I don't believe I have ever done that before. At least not sitting in my kitchen with a cup of tea. Maybe on a bus when I was half asleep and not really paying attention.

We had a horrible day yesterday. The Princess was tired but not napping. I spent all day trying to get her to sleep. SkyWalker has given up naps and with the reduced attention for him by dinner time he was just unbearable. At one point The Princess was crying in her high chair and SkyWalker was crying on the floor and I was crying in my chair. And Daddy was mowing the lawn. She finally fell asleep at 8:20. I dream-fed her at 10:45 (she did not wake up). It is now 5:34 and I have not been up to her room yet. She has been sleeping for 9 hours, hasn't eaten for nearly 7. She just did a little fussing so I know she is alive.

I am pumping and drinking my tea and checking my e-mail. When I am done I am not going to do my step aerobics (I have not done that in 2 weeks and feel like crap, but hey), but I am going to read the new Harry Potter. Two or three days ago I was saying that I did not care about HP, I'd get around to it whenever, hadn't requested it or pre-ordered it or whatever. I was at Wal-Mart and there they were so I said sure, why not, I'll buy it. I started it and now I have to read it. And as hard as I tried to get my children to cooperate yesterday they did not, so I will be reading it in the wee hours of the morn.

Vader is taking Isaac to a specialist today. He should have been healed by now and is not. He will probably need surgery. It will probably cost $2-3k. It might happen to his other back leg in the future. I'm sure they won't do surgery today.

Oops, there she goes.

Well, I can honestly say that I have not purposefully exercised in much longer than you... You have nothing to be ashamed of for a mere 2 week hiatus -- especially since you have a freakin' baby! I hope everything is ok with your other baby (Isaac)... Keep us posted with that... Oh... And, as for Harry Potter... I cannot believe you would even consider not reading it yet... That's just sacrilege! Teeheehee... Happy reading...
