Two really cute things he did yesterday: (1) He discovered his hair. For those of you who have not seen him (check out my colorbar for pics.), he was born with a massive amount of long, dark hair, most of which he still has (and hopefully will keep, as I think he's ever so much cuter than if he were bald!). Last night he put his hands up on his head and started feeling his hair. It was sooo cute! (2) M. was carrying him around while I was showering, and the only place he was happy was lying on MY side of our huge, kingsize bed. If either of us picked him up he started screaming, if we put him on M.'s side of the bed he started screaming, if we put him in his crib he started screaming, if we put him back on MY side of the bed, he laid there and grinned! For a while there we thought I was gonna have to sleep in the crib!!! ;) I had a devil of a time getting him to sleep, but finally I bribed him into a food coma at 10:30 p.m., and then was able to get him into bed. And then, he slept through the night until I woke him up at 7am, for the third night in a row!!!!! *does HUGE happy dance!!!* I've been told that this doesn't last and that they start waking up again after a while, but it doesn't hurt to dream, eh? :)
On the job front I am extremely frustrated and depressed and downright mad. I am the most senior person in my office. The new judge decided to interview three people, all from my office, none of them me. No clue why. He knows nothing about me, I'm not politically active in any objectionable groups (which is important to judges!), and my boss and "Big Boss" absolutely adore me (not sure why, exactly!!!! ;) ). So none of us has a clue why I didn't get an interview. I so should have. I am extremely qualified for the clerk position, at least as qualified as the others, if not more so, and I have more experience. GRRRRRR. My job ends -- it's a three-year non-renewable appointment -- in late December, and M. will not know if he's passed the bar until late October/early November. So we're getting really nervous about finances, what with new house (bought one year ago) and new baby, and this job was really important for me to get. So, high frustration and depression and anger.... Not a good way to feel.
However, M. is done with the bar exam. Hooray!!!!! And thanks to all who thought good thoughts for him, prayed for his success, and wished him good luck through this ordeal. It's not an easy process, as I know from experience, and all the support was truly appreciated by both of us.
Spoke only briefly with my bestest friend hawkeyesmartini last night, but had a blast. She showed me all sorts of slashy MASH pics., and a few slashy U2 pics as well. YUMMY! I love her soooo much!!!! :)
Tonight the rpg starts. I can hardly wait! I only hope I can keep up with you ladies!!!!! Let the slashy goodness begn, I say! *GRIN* I need to create a journal for Edge on greatjournals.com (I think that's the name of it -- I hope it is, or I'm gonna have trouble creating that journal!) for another rpg that I've been invited to join (thank you for inviting me foadbaby!). So, Amy and Melissa, if you've got any advice/pointers/anything to help me with this formidable task of playing The Edge, I'd be ever so grateful and would send you chocolate-covered Edge for your enjoyment!!!! (I think you'd have to share, as there's only one of him! *wink*) Also, I am to be in a third rpg with canopyofblue, which right now is gonna be a slashy Larry/Bono game. We need to talk canopyofblue to get organized if you still want to do this! I am also open to modifying the game to include others, should you prefer that. I am terribly excited about all of these rpgs. I can hardly wait to get started!
Alright, this has been overly long already, so I shall stop blathering now and get on with working (sigh.). Hope all have a great day! Oh, and HAPPY 2ND AVENURSARY one day (or is it two?) early hawkeyesmartini. Hope we get to chat tonight, girl! Huggles! NV
And yeah -- the frog is on Ritalin or Coke, or something! ;)
