Yesterday was mostly a haze of exhaustion and crying (mostly them). We managed to get to Kev's parents' for dinner, and survived it with only a few tears, which I count a major victory. The new baby (my niece!) is very cute and sleeps a lot, it seems. I don't want one.
Today is a little better -- I woke up at 3 a.m. (normal Chicago wake-up time is 5, so), but managed to keep myself in bed and dozing until 5. Got up then and had a little quiet time to read before the kids woke up. Then kids, then tiredness, now they're napping again, and I can finally get online. (No password yesterday.) And now I'm going back to reading.
If you're looking for a smart cozy mystery (for you or a gift), I recommend Louise Penny's Still Life. I tore through it yesterday, and then went to the bookstore and bought sequels. They didn't have book 2, but I bought 3 & 4 anyway, and am reading them, since they seem to be mostly stand-alone, although I do feel like I've clearly missed some of the backstory ongoing mystery with the main detective. Ah well.
