Sleeping Baby

Alex is sleeping. He is always asleep when I get home from work, and I hate that. I feel like I'm missing out on something essential in his life by not being the one to tuck him into bed at night. I tried for awhile to make his bedtime later so I could be the one to give him his nighttime cuddles, but we ended up with a tired, cranky baby. So, now he goes to bed earlier and I don't get to see him until morning. Morning seems awfully far away.

I'm sitting here at work. According to everyone we are incredibly shorthanded today. Someone quit with no notice and nobody was available to cover for him. Everyone was quite concerned about whether or not we would be able to get everything done. There were many phone calls made and a lengthy discussion about today's show schedule. Teeth were gritted, frustration was vented. We all resolved to just do what ever we needed to do to get through the day.

So why is it I'm sitting here with absolutely nothing to do? Live television is a bitch.

Getting Started

So my mother told me the other day that she thinks I should start a blog. As much as I hate to agree with her on anything, I'd been thinking along those lines for quite some time. I spend a lot of time reading others' blogs, and the urge to get some of my creative energy out in the same way has been building for some time.

So, here I am. To anyone who is reading this, welcome! Be warned, however, that I am famous for my lack of follow through, so don't be too disappointed if my charming personality and sparking wit disappear from the internets.

Since you've stumbled on this post somehow, I have to assume that you're interested in hearing the details of a complete strangers life, so let me tell you a little about my family.

I'm 32 years old (and it still sounds strange to me that my age starts with a 3), I've been married to Jym (age 40) for almost 9 years and we have a son, Alex, who will be 1 in June. We hadn't planned on having kids, so when I came up pregnant in December 2007 it was a bit of a shock to us both. I'd like to say that after the initial shock wore off that we were both thrilled (isn't that how these stories are supposed to go?), but we had both placed parenthood in the "things that other people do" category, so some major adjustments had to be made by us both.

Happily, adjustments were made, and we're now a pretty happy family of three. And three it shall remain, as I had the Essure procedure done earlier this month. Alex will be an only child. Hopefully, this won't stunt his social development as so many people seem to think it will (Thanks for your opinions, people at work who I barely know!)

So, that's it for now. It's almost 3am, and morning comes quickly with an almost 10 month old. I'm pretty excited about this blogging thing. Here's hoping that I can muster up some "follow through."
