Sleepless in Seattle. Again.
Four hours ago I sent my daughter off to Dreamland. Within seconds, I was conked out as well. Because that’s how I roll. An hour & a 1/2 ago, I woke from a dead sleep. Still wide awake. Wheeeee! So, what’s shakin’ dear Interwebs? Tell me a story so I can go back to sleep, please? Kthxbai.

kateoplis: “MAMMALS are named after their defining characteristic, the glands capable of sustaining a life for years after birth — glands that are functional only in the female. And yet while the term “mammal” is based on an objective analysis of shared traits, the genus name for human beings, Homo,… Fascinating. Especially enjoyed the 200+ comments from (apparently?) brain damaged...

I’m officially *beyond* exhausted. May take me at least a day to recover. Probably several. I hate, hate, hate shopping. And chocolate. And red roses (except when they’re growing in a garden). And the color yellow (except for sunflowers). But I do love snakes, spiders (in the garden, not in the house), and fishing and camping… Yes, I’m a weird girl. Wait. What? I have no...

Love how I always end up being the bad guy (aka parent) and all around a$shole. No matter what I do, it’s not good enough. I’m no fun. I’m a stick in the mud. I don’t sleep enough. Laugh enough. RELAX enough. How effing awesome that I get to suit up and show up (whether I want to or not), but never get a single pat on the back from the one who *is* good enough, fun up the...

This gives me some sense of relief — especially for long term Type II diabetes management. I can manage THIS… with practice. And patience.
Dear Universe, please give me a break. I really can’t take much more of this upheaval. Kthxbai.

One more day & my daughter will be back in Seattle. It’s been a long week & 1/2 without her here and though I did my best to enjoy the time off from mommy-hood (sort of), mostly I just missed the heck out of her. Yeah. I’m sure I’ll be all stressed out again soon enough, but right now I just need some serious Dexy love. I can’t wait to see her tomorrow so I can...
