Up at the Crack of Dawn

Good morning. I'm up because the baby woke up screaming and pointing like he was having a nightmare. I couldn't console him so I went and made his morning bottle and Rey crawled into bed with him to calm him down. Pretty soon he was falling back asleep when I came back with the bottle.

I decided to go ahead and stay up. It was already 7 a.m. and I know myself. If I go lay down again I won't get up. I want to make it out in field service today. Yes, I do that too.

I put on a pot of coffee and went to the washroom to take out a load from the dryer and put in a load that washed last night. I also threw a small load into the washer. I hate sounding so domestic but I am so freakin' excited to have a washer again. Our washer gave us problems a while back and Rey ended up finding out what was really wrong with it. He ordered the parts he needed online and we have a washer again! YEAH!

How many of you listen to the Writer's Almanac on NPR? I love that show. You can also listen to it online. http://writersalmanac.publicradio.org/. My favorite stories are the ones about the poor struggling writers who start writing for some totally practical reason and end up successful. Those are real Cinderella stories.

On to the day. It's already 7:35!

Loida, I'm sorry to hear your baby had a nightmare! K. from time to times has those. She told me this morning she had a nightmare and I asked her, what was it about? She said she rather not tell me because she doesn't want for me to have it. Have a nice day and way to go on your writing...(smile!)
