I don’t want to talk about this month. It was a stupid month.
Okay, it was actually a pretty nice month if I think about it with a clear head. Lots of time in nature and stuff. But my head isn’t clear because I haven’t gotten any decent sleep all month. I am just. So. Tired. Every. Single. Day. Lydia hasn’t slept this badly since she was a newborn and I have no idea why. I am at my wit’s end. But like I said: I don’t want to talk about it.
I’m battling a lot of shame lately around the fact that I’m having so much trouble managing things with just one kid. Other moms are three times as productive and read ten times as many books while caring for three times as many kids. What the crap.
Anyway, it’s due to sleep deprivation that I haven’t done much blogging, even though I’ve been dying to. My brain has just been too foggy. I didn’t even get a chance to share my experience celebrating the fall equinox. So here’s a quick glimpse:
A light dinner of homegrown seasonal food — cream of zucchini soup with red pepper saute — and a glass my parent’s 22-year old homemade apple wine. Eaten around my centerpiece/wreath filled with gourds and a soy candle. So autumnal!*
Books This Month
No time to read. Too tired.
I hate all the children’s books.
We tried to watch Now You See Me. I don’t think it was very good, but it was hard to judge because Lydia woke up halfway through it and screamed through the latter half.
Same story with Star Trek: Into Darkness, except I’m pretty sure that one was good. It was good to see Benedict Cumberbatch again, even if it wasn’t as Sherlock, which is what my heart truly desires. (Which, by the way: does anyone know WHEN THE HECK I will be able to see season 3?!?! The Internet has not been helpful at all on that matter.)
Ben and I determined that we won’t bother trying to watch movies any more until Lydia has moved out.
We watched the season premiere of Parks and Rec, which was delightful. I love how every time a male character discovers/believes his sexual partner is pregnant, he immediately responds by committing to take care of her and the child. Very gallant and admirable. Even if I don’t condone the premarital sex that got them in that situation in the first place.
The first two episodes of Big Bang Theory were thoroughly enjoyable as well.
I promise to stop complaining now.
