S.O.S.

Tuesday, March 10th, 2009

I haven’t posted in a long time, and Chris has taken over my blog.  Putting together a series of coherent sentences is far outside the realm of my cognitive abilities lately.  Why?  Because I haven’t slept.  Not a wink.  In a month.  Okay, that’s an exaggeration, but not by much.  Wee P has been waking up hourly through the night for weeks.  I initially chalked the behavior up to a growth spurt, but clearly, that’s not the deal.  At home, she would sleep for five or six hours at a time in a baby swing.  We didn’t bring the swing here, and there seem to be none to buy.  Are the Chinese a swing-hating people?  I would Ferberize her wee self and let her cry it out if we didn’t have neighbors on all sides.

I am desperate for REM. Not the Michael Stipe variety, but the kind that magically renders one fit to deal with waking life the following morning. I would truly welcome any suggestions as I am on the verge of losing what precious little is left of my gourd.  Sorry, no pics with this post, though I realize how entertaining a photo of my bug-eyed, crazed face would surly be.
