The recent online silence from quite a number of people makes me wonder if the wonky weather is the culprit behind it. Everyone is so out-of-kilter because it’s snowing (and sticking!) when it should be warm and sunny that their daily life is in turmoil.

On the positive side, it makes it easier for me to catch up… even when I go offline myself for a few days and nights…

After spending wednesday night rocking kyle to sleep until the very wee hours of the morning, he checked out fine at the doctor’s yesterday. lots of TLC plus a warm-mist humidifier made it so comfortable that although he was unhappy being put to bed at 7pm, the crankiness only lasted a few minutes after which he simply babbled to his stuffies. Before 8pm he was sleeping peacefully and stayed that way until 7am this morning! After living through yesterday with only 2 hours of sleep from the night before, I can tell you I was extremely grateful.

I’m still quite tired today but I feel better knowing that he’s feeling better and is in a better mood. This weekend, we work on installing the hanging ceiling in the new room in the basement (I don’t believe I’ve mentioned that I’ve finished the full plastering and painting of the room last weekend… I’m very happy with the results!). I’m picking James and Melyssa up at 1pm on Saturday as Melyssa has baseball practice before then (now I know I didn’t mention this fact! Because of James’ operation, his doctor has recommended he not do any sports for a few months. Melyssa decided that if she couldn’t join Soccer (her mother’s against it) then she would at least join Baseball. So, this will be her first year šŸ™‚ It will be fun to see her play and I’ll go encourage her as often as I can (considering the upcoming responsibilities and new baby, etc)).

Woah. I know I’m tired when I realize I spent maybe 1 minute typing that above sentence and finding myself starting to ramble…

As usual, I have plenty more to say especially as there have been numerous happenings and thoughts going on in TRW, but I’ve got stuff to work on right now. So, I’ll leave you with one of the thoughts that was going through my head wednesday night as I tried to soothe Kyle. If you’re familiar with Anna Nalick’s “2am Breathe” you know how it goes šŸ™‚

“2am and I’m still awake rocking my son
If I get him calmed down, he’ll no longer be
Threatening the sleep and rest he should be in…
And I feel like I’m wiped sitting here in this chair
Cause he’s hurting and sad and screaming in pain
And I know that the medicine will help soothe when it kicks in…”

2am Sleep by Mike Aragona (with apologies to Anna Nalick) šŸ™‚
