"My mind is soaked in words..."

Well, just when I was about to feel completely defeated by this day, PJ finally went to sleep after being restless for a while, and the Flyers won in OT to stay alive in the playoffs (I do still heart former Flyer Mark Recchi, even if he did tie the game for Boston to send the game into OT!)!

And yes, I am surrounded by baskets and baskets of clean clothes that need to be folded, hung, and put away. And yes, my kitchen is a damn disaster. And yes, there are so many things on my mind, just going through the spin cycle.

But, today I did manage to at least put the laundry in the washer and dryer, even if it's not folded. PJ's room is sparkly-clean, and I made him yummy baby food with my own two hands!. Hey, stop laughing. I really did! Carrots and applesauce, as a matter of fact! And they both taste good! It feels good to know for sure that what is going into PJ's belly is good for him!

Not, of course, that my nearly 18 pound 5-month-old seems too choosy about what he eats! :-P

Anyway, it bodes well to remember the good things before I let myself become entirely ready to give up on life!

Oh, and a quick mention: most of you know that I am absolutely obsessed with the Twitter account @shitmydadsays, which quote the philosophical musings of the authors 74-year-old father! They are filled with gems like:

"Waking up when you got a baby, you feel like you drank a bottle of whiskey the night before, except the shit's in someone else's pants."


Well, the dude who writes the Twitter feed, Justin Halpern, got a book deal! And the book is hysterical! I cried, I laughed so hard reading it! I love books that are just full of unbridled funny like that, so I highly recommend this one!

And that's all I've got for tonight!
