Why we love the Dream On Me Pack N Play Mattress

Hi again! Sometimes I like something enough that I feel sharing a few tidbits about my experience with it will benefit people in similar situations. This is one of those times. Here’s my review on this pack n play mattress that seemingly has magical powers over our nap-resisting son. [This post contains affiliate links.]    When John started sleeping over at his grandparents’ place, they got a Graco Pack N Play. We had one already that we’d loved since he was first born but weren’t ready to part … Continue reading

My first night with Fitbit Flex

I hope you all had a merry Christmas! One of the great gifts I received was the Fitbit Flex that I’ve wanted since first seeing it last summer. I love tracking my steps and distance covered (calories burned I care less about since I’m pregnant), but I was also excited to track my sleep habits. It’s very lightweight and can be worn to bed comfortably (as well as in the shower without being destroyed, so that’s neat). You can sync it with your desktop device … Continue reading

Time to Die

Let’s try a new theme for a while. See how long it lasts.  I remember when 12:55am was early for bed and not late (SWAG!).  I just had one of those (BRO!) moments where your head starts making up weird things… like a brain glitch before the word ‘glitch’ began to refer only to human error and not an actual computer malfunction. Enough already.  Need more zeds.   Share the post “Time to Die” FacebookTwitterGoogle+PinterestStumbleUponE-mail

The Wonder That is Sleep

Oh, it turns out it wasn’t a late-twenties crisis I was going through last night, it was simply a lack of sleep.  I woke up without that headache today and it turns out I am fine until I go to work again this afternoon.

Hallowe’en. It’s not just for stupid babies anymore.

Miklos and I are hitting up the town as depression-era newsies. I can’t wait to get pictures. Since my gums are far too sensitive for (too much) candy these days, pictures are the sweetest part of Hallowe’en for me. I’m having a cat dilemma. That dilemma is that Rico’s craving attention at 1-, 3-, and 5AM are driving me bat-shit bananas. I have never met a more annoying cat OR person than Rico. Yet I am obligated to love him. I would defend that cat’s … Continue reading

Apocolypse Eventually!

Well! Let me tell you. It’s my sister’s 23rd birthday today. Hope she’s both having a blast and over the flu today. Setting the clocks back has ruined us all. I think I’ve heard every single person I’ve talked to this week complain that they are tired, and right now I’d have to agree with them. Napping my 4 hour break between shifts away sounds pretty good right now. Except that there’s only 2 hours left by now. At any rate… sleep! Share the post … Continue reading

I don’t play baby games.

An empty Tim Hortons cup sits on my desk, to the left of my computer and to the Southeast of my phone. This is a cue for me to make a tea. I enjoy a good Earl Grey tea these days. I also enjoy ‘paying back’ my sleep debt. One day Miklos is going to pay back his sleep debt too, but his case will be much more Van Winkle than mine (minus all the tragedy). When he awakes, there will be mugs and mugs … Continue reading

Electric Feel

Why do I not like sleep at night, but I love it so come morning? I’m tired as all shit, but I just won’t go down. Why don’t I think this much during the daytime? It certainly would help a lot of things. This is a good’un (I didn’t pay attention to the video, I’ll be honest). It was track #11 on ‘Economics is a Drag’ Mix ’08 as compiled by Ellie. That girl was fun. Share the post “Electric Feel” FacebookTwitterGoogle+PinterestStumbleUponE-mail

What’s wrong with the way it used to be! Get to the bank, it was closed!

I like to stay out of socio-political discussions because most often I don’t know what the fuck I’m talking about, but the people who govern Myanmar are absolutely fucking sick. I’ll be glad to be away from the news for a couple days, but sad because I know it’s still going on. I can’t believe how different things are from one place to another; how is this kind of shit even allowed to happen? Woke up at 5:30 this morning. Went to bed about four … Continue reading
