Early Morning Stream of Consciousness

It's 6 am. My little bundle of joy has woken up. For a little while, anyway. It seems had I checked his diaper when I first heard the screams coming through the monitor, I may have been able to get him back to sleep. Now that I figured it out, (half an hour later and half an episode of "Voyager" watched,) I have gently placed him back in his crib in hopes that he will fall asleep again. While I am awaiting this, I have gone into the next room to write this blog post as I listen for the complaining to subside and sleep to once again fall upon the household. If the complaining does not subside within 5 minutes, I shall know that sleep will not fall upon the household until he has been awake for some time and shall require his morning nap.

Let's see how much I can write in 5 minutes. Join me as I allow my stream of consciousness to bubble forth. Hang on, it may be a bumpy ride.

I want to bake some chocolate chip cookies and eat every single one as soon as they come out of the oven. There is absolutely no point in eating chocolate chip cookies any other way. Maybe I can just make one chocolate chip cookie, that way I won't feel like I'm wasting anything and I won't blow up like a balloon because of all the calories. Speaking of calories, I have another 10 pounds to go to get back to my prepregnancy weight. Yay! I'm joining LA Fitness because they have a great nursery where I am not afraid to bring Lancelot, unlike The Other Gym that I toured where the nursery frightened me. LA Fitness has a water aerobics class that I plan on joining, because I like to exercise but I hate getting hot and sweaty. In the pool, you don't feel hot and sweaty even though you are. It's great. I'm going to the chiropractor again later this morning for my second adjustment. My lower back is starting to feel better, but I can tell some work still needs to be done.

OK, the crying has subsided. Sleep has once again descended upon the household, and yet I remain the only fool not in bed.

Going back to sweet slumber for *hopefully* another couple of hours.

Have a lovely day!

You know what you can do? Make chocolate chip cookie dough, then make it into rolls, wrap them in waxed paper, put them in a freezer bag, and freeze them. Then when you want to bake just one (or two, or four, or five, or six) cookie(s), you can just slice off what you need, and bake!

Water aerobics is indeed awesome. I wish I could do water aerobics.

Did you know dear sister that I myself so water aerobics? Tis quite fun-if it's offered there you should give Zumba a shot. I love you.

Good for you on the weight loss! I still have a ways to go and it's kind of disheartening that I'll just get pregnant again and gain it alllll back. :-)

I hope you got more sleep!

Excellent idea on the cookies. Chocolate chip cookies have, what? -- 50, 100 calories? If you make one cookie out of the dough, then that totally works. Cookie math.

Gee, and this reminds me of when you were still expecting Lancelot, and JP and I offered to call you in the middle of the night when Fly woke up so you would get used to hearing a baby crying at these hours.... We're so generous, I know....

I was going to recommend that dough freezing thing, too! Chocolate chip cookies are only good hot out of the oven, but who needs 60? Me. That's who.
That is QUITE the cute baby you've got in the above post.
