That was too easy...

Last night Evelyn was in bed and asleep by 9:20. Like whoa. I couldn't believe it. I hardly knew what to do with myself. I started and finished an entire homework module, learning how to manipulate the tricky pen tool in AI. Lots of fun, and the end result was this rockin' pear:


I'm really looking forward to playing around more with the pen tool. I see great possibilities.

So around 11:45 I headed to bed, still not quite knowing what to do with myself because Evelyn was still asleep. I had a great feeling of unease because the whole thing was too darn easy. I lay awake in bed for at least an hour, worrying and thinking about minutia. Of course, just as I began to drift off, Evie woke up. Then I began to pay for the ease of her initial bedtime. We were awake from maybe 1:30 to 4am--nursing, cajolling, pleading for sleep, to no avail. I must have put her down 5 or 6 times and had it really look like she was going to make it this time. But no, no dice. I'm not entirely sure how it all worked out, except that she was in her crib this morning, and I woke up in bed, so at some point, I guess it stuck.

Today I've tried her for a nap twice with no luck. The second time I went and had a lie down myself, hoping to make up a little sleep, but no...

NOW, of course, she's asleep, but I have somewhere (grumble) to be in 3 hours, and it's a place I'm not particularly excited about going, so instead of sleeping, I'll spend the next 3 hours mentally pacing and hand wringing and sweating at the forced awkwardness of it all.

Ah. You had my Tuesday. :)

Hang in there. I am so sorry you're tired. I know how it must be. We're night-weaning (post to come on that soon) and last night boy was awake from 2:45 to 4:30.


Keep on keepin' on, girl.
