Dealing with babies ...

Today I learned how untangle my arm from a girl without waking her up. She refused to stop crying unless I held her. Eventually she fell asleep, but when I tried to put her down she started crying again. So my solution was to slowly untangle myself from her and transfer her to the couch, gently, without waking her up.

Seriously, what is up with the universe this week? Every single day since my birthday has been filled with drama of some sort. A blast from my past, unexpected romance, death, finals, work, confessions. My brain hurts, my nerves are shot ... ouch.

I am actually looking for a little downtime. Instead of going out and getting drunk to celebrate the end of finals Friday, I am going to be taking care of a one year old and a three year old. Of course it's silly to think that taking care of those two is going to be downtime. Still it's different, and I look forward to that.

I think I will pick up that book that I been saving for winter break: "Revolutionary Road" (Richard Yates).
