The Sad Insomniac

Insomnia is a wicked evil thing to suffer from when you have an almost-nine month old. Back in my pre-kid days, I’d toss back a unisom and be in dream land twenty minutes later. I can’t do that anymore. Not only do I sleep too heavily to wake in case of emergency, I feel awful…

Surfing Sunday 3.28

After watching his sister play countless games, James has decided that he, too, wants to be a stud ballplayer. He’s suddenly a little sponge, soaking up coaching and busting his butt to improve every chance he gets. In his first game, he had the game-winning hit and the game-saving play. His coach awarded him the…

Happy New Year!! It’s 2020! Where is my flying car, where is my robot maid named Rosie? We continued our annual NYE tradition of ringing in the east coast’s new year with our friends at 9pm local time, and west coast new year on our couch at home together. This year Annie had no problem…

Happy Memorial Day weekend, Americans! This weekend, Annie’s softball team is playing in a softball tournament hosting by our league. It’s the 27th year of the tournament, which brings in 92 teams from all over Southern California. But 26 years ago, there were only about 10 teams…and I was on one of them. It’s fun…

Over the last two weeks or so I’ve decided to take advantage of my open hours (aka unemployment) to change up my blog posting schedule. In the past, I’ve used my daylight hours to get work done, and the hours after the kids went to bed as my time to do my personal projects, like…

Backyard Glamping

Annabel has been begging us to take her camping for at least a year. My dad once said something to her about camping in their backyard, and she was completely enamoured with the idea. Unfortunately for her, my parents don’t have a backyard anymore, and we don’t have a backyard with grass. Also, I like…

Can’t Process

This week has left me feeling numb and shell-shocked. My brain has gone into safety┬ámode. It has just enough energy for what my kids need and what my job needs. And even then, just┬ábarely. I’ve found myself staring for hours at the same sentence on my computer screen. The time between lunch and dinner seems…

Daylight Stupid Time

Congratulations, we have survived one of the worst days of the year: the first day of Daylight Saving Time. I also contend it is almost the worst parenting day of the year (I will give that title to the day after Halloween because sugar crashes). Annabel asked me why we have Daylight Saving Time, and…

California Screamin’

James has not been the best sleeper. Actually, sleeping is not something any of my kids have particularly excelled at. With the girls, I feel like that was very much just who they were, but a lot of James’ early sleep problems were definitely not helped by what I call our “final child laziness.” The…

The Snores Are Multiplying

Every single creature that lives in this house snores, including the dog. I don’t snore because I’m never asleep because of, you know, all the snoring. When I first moved in with Mike, his snoring wasn’t a big deal. I’d just nudge him, he’d roll onto his side, and the snoring would stop. I even…
