Let me just say from the start that I have no idea what this post will be about. Don’t expect a well-written, organized, thoughtful post. I’m too tired.

First, happy birthday to my Mom. She’s 25 years old again this year. Love you, Mo!

So, what’s the deal? I feel like we take one step forward and two steps back in the kid department. Claire has been sleeping through the night for 2 weeks and then, BAM!, she’s been waking up at 1:30 or 2:00a.m. ALL.WEEK.LONG. What gives, Bear? Growth spurt? Just want some parental interaction? Too hot? Too cold? What!? Last night was the worse yet this week – she was awake and fussing from 2:00-3:00, I fed her, she stayed awake for an hour, and then woke up again at 6:00a.m. And now? I’m totally exhausted and loopy at work. Case in point: a faculty member called and asked me if I knew who Scarlett was and I immediately responded, “Scarlett Johansen?” Totally not what I meant to say. Erg.

Wanna know what I think is highway robbery? Selling a cup of tea for $1.45. I actually paid that this morning for a cup of boiling water and a little tea bag – I can get a bag of like 20 for $3.99 at Kroger! The chile rellenos quiche I bought was worth the money, but that cup of hot water? Not so much.

I like my new car. It handles really well and I feel cute in it. Huz says it looks a little Euro, so I’ll gladly accept it if people think I’m cute and Euro-looking in it. (Euro-looking? Did I make up a word again?)

My plans for the weekend – getting a babysitter for the very first time and going out on a date. Yippee! I made dinner reservations here and am very much looking forward to a little Huz/Wife time.

That’s it. Sorry for the random thoughts of an exhausted lady. But, hey, at least it’s Friday.
