instead of posting here, I actually started another short story. It isn’t done. But it’s started and life is all about beginnings.
The Baby’s new beginning is that she is now sleeping in a crib IN HER ROOM. She has been crying every few minutes, but the room is dark and she’s been in there about half an hour. Of course…
It is now early afternoon and the bug is back down for a nap in her room! The broken car is going to set me back 300 bux but I guess it could be worse–much worse. I am so painfully tired yet have been running around straightening because one of the women from my Mom’s Bible Study is coming by to pick up my soup for dinner at church. I have to stop. I have to either nap or write. The fabulous women in my mom’s group are NEVER going to care that my house is cluttered–nay trashed.
The Baby was up all night and I need to be sleeping before the car place calls to say the car is ready. I’m really worried about the retreat this weekend. I’m afraid Ellie is going to keep us awake–making all of us (me) even crankier than usual AND that she will keep other people awake with her crying. I’m thinking of rearranging the rooms again and putting us in an adjoining room. That way I could be with The Baby while everyone else was in the other room.
