My work schedule is horrendous.  I don’t have two days off in a row together for the next month.  I don’t really want to get into all the work crap, because I’ll probably end up crying.

I didn’t think it was possible, but Ronan’s sleeping habits have gotten worse.  And it’s not bad once he’s asleep!  He stays asleep most of the night, it’s just the getting him “down” part.  Last night, I rocked him, swung him, bounced him, sang, cuddled, crooned, talked, shhushed, and eventually ended up crying with him for over 2 hours.  By the time I got him to sleep, I was so wound up every single time I heard him shift or grunt I would wake up with a start and pray that he wouldn’t wake up. 

This, too, shall pass.

I’m in a jam as far as child-care goes.  No nanny, and day care can only take him a very few select days, which aren’t always the days that I need.  Brock is going out of town for a week, and I have to find someone to take care of him for two 12 hour shifts.

I’m totally zoning out, and have no more ideas about what to write.  So I’ll stop.

    I stumbled across it today while looking for something else, and I realized that at the moment, I think it applies to you.

    And it could be worse.  After all, Ronan isn’t a mean and despicable creature like me, you know.
