can't do it much longer

Is it possible to actually die from lack of sleep? 'Cause if it is, this is my last entry because this is also my last day on earth. In the last couple of weeks, I've gotten ONE night of 7 hours of sleep, the rest have been 3-6. I can't survive this way.

Right now, I'm sipping a hot, lovely, caramel latte. You may not know, but I used to be a Starbucks barista, back before I was a mother, and even before I was married. I worked at Barnes & Noble back then, mainly in the music department, and I was also trained to work in the Cafe. The Cafe, with Starbucks' name on it, insisted that all Cafe workers be trained just like any Starbucks barista. So my husband is very lucky to be married to someone who can whip up a latte Starbucks-style for a lot less money! Complete with Reddi Wip and caramel sauce drizzled over the top. Let the fun out!

I put my hair in braids today, then went grocery shopping. I felt like a fool because the People magazine with Julia Roberts and her babies was plastered all over the store and guess what? Her hair is in braids exactly like mine.

Daddy 'n baby Posted by Hello

Isn't that just the sweetest thing you ever done seen? And they weren't even posing. Well, OK - Mason was posing, a little. Dano was sleeping. He was kinda twitching, even.

Happy Superbowl Sunday to everyone who cares. Meaning, we don't watch it here. I don't even know who's playing. How un-American of me!

Yesterday we had a nice visit with some friends from Minneapolis (soon to be from Wisconsin as soon as their house gets finished!), they were passing through on their way back from a wedding in western ND. They are currently childless, and I always wonder if hanging out with our zoo makes for good birth control, or makes people want children. Last night we watched "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind". It was good, and a nice break from all the action flix we've been watching lately. By the way, "Bourne Supremacy" is not quite as good as "Bourne Identity", but still worth watching.

Today I'll be going grocery shopping (I like to go on Sundays so I can grab a Sunday paper), and then I have a client meeting at 3:00, at the Southside Starbucks. Whee! She's due later this month, and then I'm back in the swing of things with births. I get to lecture at the local University in March, I'm scared out of my mind about it, but also looking forward to it.

Tomorrow is... dun-dun-DUHHHHNNNN!!!!... shots day for Darien. I so do NOT want to do this. When they're babies, it's different. It's like cruel and unusual punishment to vaccinate a four-year-old. So I probably won't post tomorrow, I'll be busy devoting lots of time, love, and attention to my firstborn.
