More tired, but better.

Last night was brutal... after i wrote that entry, I practically passed out on the floor near Olivia's bassinet, and when I fed her before I went to bed, I was a complete zombie. But I managed to settle her down and pass her off to mommy. I ended up waking up a little late this morning, but still made my trains ok. I did feel like shit for most of the day... but a bagel and a coffee did help. So did a nice walk during lunch on a perfect day, and the discovery of some good Chinese food restaurants in decent walking distance.

Tonight has been a different story. After dinner and after Melissa went to bed, Olivia has been pretty chill for the most part, and when she woke up, I changed her (and she started pooping right when I took off her diaper, but I managed to catch it all with the dirty diaper), swaddled her, and fed her, and now she's sleeping again. And I've managed to stay awake this time. How did I do that? Just by staying active... I've been going through stuff in the office that has just been sitting around, and I put some stuff away and straightened stuff out in there. Just staying active has really helped a lot.

Ok, I am getting sleepy again. Time to do something while I'm doing nothing.

    Have you considered cocaine? I hear that heavy cocaine use and newborn babies go together like peanut butter and jelly. Or is that peanut butter and tuna fish?

    Cocaine? I was thinking heroin, but maybe your suggestion is better. Melissa might go with cocaine since she has no veins and that would be trouble with the heroin needles.

    Wait wait wait...maybe I was too hasty with my cocaine suggestion. Here we go Joe - crystal meth! We can make it ourselves! What a fun summer project...
