Monday and Tuesday nights, Will and I went to bed at 8:30. I’m not saying we fell asleep right away (wink, wink), but we caught up on some much-needed rest. Wednesday night (that’s last night, lest I confuse anyone) we stayed up late (like 10:30) watching Observe and Report.
Here is my review: hilarious, slightly mean-spirited, no fucking rape scene omg I am so horrendously offended that anyone thinks that was rape, did I mention hilarious?
So back to sleep. Apparently we are not allowed to fill our sleep deficit for more than 48 hours, because last night SUCKED. So unfair. Today I feel like absolute crap. Both children woke up at like 3:30 in the morning and took forever to get back to sleep. Poor Will has been up ever since–at least I got back to sleep, though my neck is at such an angle today that I’m not sure it did me any good.
- My sister has encountered the legendary Southern California flakiness, just as she was thinking she might have a job.
- I made Sam cry twice today and feel like a rotten parent.
- I am all touched out and wish both children would leave me the hell alone, which makes me feel even worse.
- DID I MENTION MY NECK?
- Amazon has not yet delivered my copy of Freefall. UPS claim they attempted delivery yesterday, but they didn’t leave a slip. GOD I HATE UPS. If you ever have to send me anything, please use the post office. Our mail carrier is the best.
I am trying to make Grace’s Halloween costume. I changed my mind and instead of Supergirl she is going to be Robin to Sam’s Batman. It is so obvious that I had a real facepalm moment when I realized. So I’m using this tutorial to make the top and the pattern instructions made me feel like a real moron but I think I made it work. (I didn’t have a onesie handy that I could actually take apart, so I attempted to trace one just by manipulating it and that may have been dumb.) If I can find my black felt I will make the Robin symbol (I bought yellow and I even know where it is!) and then I can sew the top together. I’m making pants too, to stand in for tights, but I already know how to make pants.
THEN I have to finish Sam’s costume. My mom bought this cape for him (she got Grace one too, but I’m making her one for Robin). He needs a cowl (yikes) and black leggins (everyone sells black jeggings, so I’ll probably have to make these) and a new t-shirt (which I thought I could buy but it’s not looking good so I might have to make that too) and a UTILITY BELT which I am super excited to make but not really sure how I will manage. Oh, and I am going to make some Bat-arangs.
Halloween is NEXT month, right?
