What to muse about today?

March 2, 2011 ~ Who Needs Sleep?

So, I had written up the Aside about Teagan’s favorite show yesterday, but then fell asleep before I could publish it.  Before I could  write up a “real” entry.  Oops.

The insomnia, sleeplessness and wakefulness have hit.  Hit hard.  That, and the midnight heartburn.  I’ve started sleeping with an extra pillow, but it may be time to add another one.  Increase the angle of repose.

I will not miss this part one bit.  Will there be more sleep with a newborn?  Possibly not, but it will actually be sleep.  Not this cheap, pale immitation of sleep.  And, I’ll be able to sleep on my back again.



March 2, 2011

So it’s been a while since I’ve written about the weather, the yard, the house.  Well, with all the lovely warm weather we’ve been having, most of the snow has slowly melted away.  This is a very good thing.  We’ve only had a little water in the basement, mostly down the wall where the chimney is. 

All the snow is off the roof of the front of the house, and I’m sure it’s mostly gone from the back too.  There’s still some snow on the deck, but it doesn’t get that much sun.  We’ve only had a bit more water come through the kitchen ceiling, although the front corner now looks like it has some water damage.  Not bad though.  But something to look at this summer.  Not too much more seems to have come in through Teagan’s ceiling/ceiling fan.  A very good thing.

You can see most of the front lawn, except where the snow mounds from clearing the driveway, the sidewalk, are.  You can actually see over the tops of the snowbanks on the street.  It’s funny to drive down the road and see the toppled over mailboxes and the garbage that people had put out, but was buried with the two HUGE snowfalls that happened to be on garbage day.

Grass.  There’s grass out there!  And it’s greening up!

I actually saw the fish (that survived,) swimming in the pond today.  I counted four or five.  The white one and the dark spotted one were there.  At least two orange ones.  So nice to see them!

The yard  has been covered with robins for about a week.

I’m ready for it to be spring.


March 1, 2011 ~ Uh Oh!

Teagan LOVES America’s Funniest Home Videos.  No, she does not realize it’s at least 10 years old.  They always have dogs and cats on.  Arf Arf, Meow, Meow!  It comes on after the morning news, and as we are doing a mad dash to get everything ready to go to day care/work, we usually don’t turn the TV off.  Teagan gets to watch it most mornings while she’s eating breakfast.

Today, as Stu brought her into the room, he mentions that her favorite show is on.  She goes “Uh Oh show!”  LOL!
