Sorry about last week, my brain was broken. It sort of felt like I was letting Jessica Simpson write my blog. If Jessica Simpson had a frontal lobotomy. And then had a stroke robbing her of the powers of speech. And then she got really high. And then somehow we traded brains in a science fiction novel gone horribly, terribly wrong. And THEN she wrote my blog. Although I'm sure that Jessica Simpson is, in reality a lovely and charming woman, never-you-mind some of the things she says.
This week. This week will be better. This week I have at least 0.578% of my brain in good working order (although that's the part of my brain devoted to regular sleep cycles, so perhaps I speak too soon).
My weekend was nice, calm, quiet. Friday was Ben's birthday which meant cake! And then I spent the night at my parents' house to take advantage of hot baths in a claw-foot tub, and sleeping in, and my mom making waffles and bacon on Sunday. And then yesterday I lay down with Gabriel to read him a bedtime story at oh, I'd say 8:15. Then I woke up at midnight, and went to my bed. Then I woke up at 1am, because Gabriel was climbing into my bed. Then I woke up at 2:30 with an unslakeable thirst, and a strong craving for juice. Then I woke up at 3:30 with Gabriel poking at me and demanding juice. Then I woke up at 4:15 to pee, and at 5 to take Gabriel to pee, then at 6 because it was time to start my day. And then I couldn't wake Gabriel up at 6:30 to start his day. Which is pretty typical. And possibly why my brain cells are so rarely able to band together and produce coherent thoughts.
And then this week! I have a four day work week, thanks to good old Independence Day. And I'm taking the 11th and the 18th off, just because I'm awesome, and I have three three-day weekends in a row! Is this heaven? Well. Perhaps...
Okay so maybe Jessica Simpson never actually managed to get her brain back, and maybe this week won't be any better. Sorry!
