I haven't posted in quite some time, trying to avoid spewing bile again as I slog through yet another period of Bean sleep problems. I can't believe the harpie I become when I'm sleep-deprived! But all you mamas know about that already. I do hope to be a normal, loving mama again one of these days.

Just quickly, I wanted to put down here the entertaining montage of things on my kitchen counter after a week's vacation from school. They are: a half-finished mega bottle of cheap red wine, a mushroom log sprouting its first crop of organic, home-grown shiitakes, and a tray of fluorescent pink Peeps bunnies, mostly eaten and the remainder achieving a delightful dry sugar crust in this damn cold snap we're having.

I may once have worked as a pastry chef, but no one can ever accuse me of being a food snob.

you will become a normal human being day. I remember those sleepless YEARS! I was a walking zombie, seriously, and you just can't function on no sleep.

I hope you get a chance to get a nap, and if not....give Bean some of that cheap red wine! ;)

Oh how that sucks. Sleep deprivation is a form of torture.

I just can't do Peeps. I'm not a big marshmallow fan. Except roasted over a fire... hmmmm.

I hate being sleep deprived and now I have to go through it all over again. I am not a nice person when I don't get my sleep.

You are not alone.

my 9 year old started having sleep problems. It much more difficult for me now that I'm old!
