Sleep Pic of the Day! 2-For-1 Special, Official Summer Kick-Off!

June 21, 2011 at 10:53 am (Sleep Pic of the Day) (, , , , , )

My daughter didn’t know she would be featured in her very own daily picture post! This is at the ungodly hour of 7 am. Straight legged, looking kind of stiff but snoring ever so slightly, hands over her head. I remember reading a long time ago, when I was  fresh mom, that when babies, or kids, sleep with their arms thrown up over their head like that, they are in the most relaxing sleep they can be in. It’s a sign of their pure comfort. No inner baby stress, I guess. I always thought that was a nice thing for new moms to know. You can be assured that you ARE NOT doing a completely crap job if your kid can lay like he/she has no cares in the world, even if it is for a short time, and even though they really don’t have any cares in the world, except food/sleep/poo. Hmm. Actually, I know alot of people like that….but anyway…. even if ALL the babies in the world sleep like that just because they do, it’s still a plus in the parent department.

Here’s a pic after I woke her up at 8 am. I know, I am a MONSTER! She managed to make it all the way to the couch. At least she was out of her bed. That’s half the battle.

Last post of the night…

Hold on, let me get a drink for this….

Ok. If you read this in any kind of dailyway, I pretty much list off my activities for the day. So, even though I had good intentions when I woke up this morning (early , so that I could watch the WGN Morning News—I even texted what kind of underwear Pat Tomasulo should wear to co-host his first Regis & Kelly Show on Tuesday—sad), basically I did nothing. The road to Hell…

Drank coffee. Bitched and moaned when I had to take the car to the brake shop, which we desperately needed. Grumped about having to go buy windows and stain and rocks for the house to make it look nicer. Hated the lunch I ate, even though I picked the place. Was bored at the Pet Store getting feeders for the cannibal Oscars (which are getting big–I’m going to do a before and after post when I sober up in the morning because I’ll never find the old pictures in this condition). Sat inside and played BeJeweled on the computer and Facebook while the BF cleaned off the roof, gutters and patio in the blazing midday sun. Perked up a little when we had to go get the car, brand new brakes—so nice!–only because I knew we had to go right past a liquor store! Yay! Happily walked around said liquor store picking up various drink items for tonight and tomorrow. Drove car home thinking about making delicious martini’s and laying across the couch like a lump. Sitting here, right now, drinking second martini and typing about the things that I won’t be finishing up tonight. Like…

The laundry.

The kids room. So close too! Got it painted and ready to re-build. Got proof too! See pics below! I was going to save them for the big before and after unveiling, but who am I kidding?? I might not even finish that room now until Sunday or Monday. HA. All I have to do is hang curtains and move the furniture back. Oh Cursed Vodka!!

Another thing I didn’t do was run. And I feel bad about that. It’s been 2 days; three when I wake up tomorrow. (I did paint for those two days—today was just pure lazy) It’s going to suck running around out there for 4 miles, maybe more, as punishment, with a hangover and reeking of booze sweat but I can’t get behind. I have a five mile race in one month and you saw those butt pictures. Eee-yew…did any one else just feel a chill?? Goosebumps. Or giant lumps (of fat in my pants—yuck). I’m not even telling you where those pictures are or linking it. Find it yourself.

What I am going to do though, is finish this up, post those pictures (the walls and windows really did turn out nice–good work SoberLisa!) and make some moves on my BF. (Too much information???)

Like Chrissie Hynde of The Pretenders, once said (and she totally rocks):

“One drink makes me want to go to bed.

Two drinks makes me want to go to YOUR bed.”

Goodnight, Chicagago!
