Tomorrow’s gonna be a long day

21 Dec

Make that today.  Today is going to be a long day.  It’s nearly 4 a.m.  I have lain in my bed tonight, but I haven’t actually slept.  There’s this really short person who has refused to go back to sleep since 12:30.  She just ate all but one bite of a banana and part of a rice cake and she’s chirping happily to herself with no signs of fatigue.  Three guesses as to my mood at the moment.

    We can sympathize. Friday and Saturday Lisa and I agreed to babysit a 5-month-old for a family here in return for them babysitting for us on short notice and at times and the baby cried almost non-stop. Not sure we’ll be doing that again……lol….At east today is the shortest day of the year if its any consolation.

    You are so wrong. Look at the calendar, today is the winter solstice, the SHORTEST day of the whole year 🙂
    I have gotten 2 naps in today! 8-8:30 and 1-3:30, but I’m not bragging!!!!!!

    I love the part about her chirping happily! It makes a heart merry to think of that, even if happy was not the emotion at the time!

    Grace is grabbing at anything with gusto, and has now grabbed my food several times so it will be fun to introduce food to her after Christmas!

    Ahh, Fawny, Patricia O’Conner, otherwise one to plead that it is the plebs which makes a language right or wrong, not some stuffed Latinist grammarians, would whip you for calling something “ironic” that’s merely “coincidental”. She postulates the word “ironic” needs to be staunchly defended for what it should mean, namely “saying one thing and meaning another”, because there is no good replacement for “ironic” once it gets watered down to mean a whole slew of other things.

    Alas, I think Patricia is fighting a hopeless battle, and I think she knows it, for when in a publication upholding supreme literary standards, such as this, “ironic” and “coincidental” become synonyms, she must surely concede defeat.
