P.S. (Pre sleep? Post sleep? Praying for sleep?)

Leaving later today for Portland... another house hunting visit. This time my BF is coming w/ Dex & I. I'm glad for that b/c I don't wanna do this stuff alone anymore. The bummer of course is that it's just a "vacation". He's not leaving Vegas... and I'm not staying in CA. What next?

Meanwhile, I sit here wondering how much more "relaxed" I'd be (e.g. less stressed, less fat, less freaked out) if I actually got real sleep every night? Quality sleep? Sleep without interuption from crying babies, barking dogs, restless elderly fathers, rats scurrying the halls, roofers banging away above, phones ringing, sweat inducing nightmares, discomfort in my own bed. Not to mention all the thoughts & worries running tireless circles around some beaten clay track in my brain for hours upon end when I should be SLEEPING.

Probably would do me a world of good.

Easier said than done though. G-d, please let me get some sleep in Portland.

The end. Again.

Babies are designed to give you the least amount of rest possible at any given moment in time.

It all has to do with the curse: "Just wait until YOU have children" This curse, through the eons, has allowed for the development of the perfect child, in this case Dex. Dex is the perfect Mom keeping awake machine ever invented. Rest assured that when Dex has babies, her baby will be better at keeping HER awake than any other possible baby.

Ha.Ha. You one funny man. What I want to know is, WHY oh WHY don't babies keep their daddies awake? Where is the justice in that?
