I am extremely pleased with today’s weather. If I could have picked any weather for today, it would be exactly what is happening. It’s unseasonably cool for central Texas in late summer at 61 degrees!! And it’s been raining for hours! If I’m going to be sitting around the house all day catching up on rest after back-to-back brutally sparse nights of sleep, a cool and rainy day is just the thing. Last night I was up till 3:30, slept til 6:30, then slept on and off from 7:00 to 8:24. Johnny would eat but had no interest in going back to sleep, so we came downstairs and watched Three’s Company on TVLand for hours. He slept fine as long as he could lay on me at a particular angle, so I just went with it.
It was a tough first week back at the office. Obviously I was short on sleep most nights, and Lauren could have used a hand around the house with a baby under 2 weeks old, a neglected beagle, and appointments to get to. But, we managed. Things will get a bit easier now that we have a new fully functional oven. Our old oven was from 1994 and the temperature was uncontrollable. We took advantage of a great Labor Day sale and bought a new LG double oven from Home Depot, which was delivered yesterday.
