Chasing Sleep

My little guy is getting a tooth and he’s not sleeping for more than a couple hours (or less) at a time. This means I am not sleeping at all. *yawn* I’ve tried everything. Anyone know any secrets to settling cranky, teething babies? You’d think I’d never done any of this before but I actually [...]

More fun than a poke in the eye…

I swore I would not go near my blog today because I just have too much stuff to do. Reallly important stuff like packing up and mailing gifts for the nieces and nephews I haven’t seen in nearly two years and cleaning my messy-ass house so I can host a visit from my stepmother which [...]
