Me: (What?????) Why do you say that?

E: Well, Claire isn't the baby anymore and the new baby needs the crib.

:spit that's great

Emmy, my husband might die of shock if I was up for it 5-6 times a week WHERE do you find the ENERGY? (And the time? )

Actually, (trying hard to keep this within UA guidelines : ) if we didn't have to work out so long each and every time....I might not have a problem with working out 5-6 times a week. And any more details would probably be better suited to PM : Or not told at all. :

Yeah, so, basically, this dude says that there are a few different types of "hunger" and you might be mistaking one or two with food hunger, even though it's not really food you're after. One is sex, the others are thirst and SLEEP. So there you have it. I'm fat because Joey's a lousy night nurser

But, because of Emmy's example, I've got hope : : :

Well, we're still at 10 minutes apart but I can't sleep through them. I'm just killing time until Sage wakes up and we can take her to our friend's place. I guess I'll head to the hospital when they're 5 minutes apart. I'll be bouncing on the birth ball until then. I'm all showered, legs shaved (because that's the most important thing) and ready to go. Here's a song I'm working on:

(To be sung to the tune of John Denver's Leaving on a Jet Plane)

All my bags are packed,
I'm ready to go.
My water broke and
I've got bloody show.

That's all I've got so far, but give me a break. It's the middle of the night and I think I'm a bit delirious!

Sha - as for the time, Cully starts the night in his bed most nights. We also like mornings in the bathroom, too.
Energy - I think I've said it before. It's like going out at night. As it's getting to be time to go, I'm sitting on the couch thinking how lovely it would be to just stay home, cause I'm TIRED and don't really feel like moving, but then I finally dragass off the couch and go out, and even though I'm tired, when I get there I'm really glad I went afterall.

Question of the day (to help us pass the time until we get baby news): does it seem like all of a sudden you are constantly changing light bulbs? We haven't changed bulbs for months and now there are at least 2 out at all times. Right now there we are 3 short in the kitchen including the one over the sink. Very annoying trying to make Claire a bottle in the dark.

Michelle, how WEIRD! Us too! The fixture in the kitchen has been blowing bulbs left and right. DH (who's an electrician) said that we probably got a bad batch of bulbs. Last they were changed was last week, maybe and they're hanging in so far. So, maybe you've got a bad box of bulbs, too?

Emmy....well, neither of those are viable options for me, because Joey's bed is right up against ours, and she gets up with me in the morning. I do like late night in the bathroom though :
