i’m lame and tired and all over the place

3 Feb

no new monday music again this week. life gets in the way and i can’t just sit down and bang out a song. it takes me a few takes on that mofo to get it right. it’s b/c i’m still not very good at the guitar. i always screw it up.

hopefully, i’ll have a sliver of time tomorrow and can do a song. 2, if we’re lucky. one original and one cover. sounds like a plan to me.

jamison is in a room besides mine tonight for the first time. i’m excited about the prospect of sleeping without a baby next to me if for no other reason than i get my husband back to spoon, but i’ll miss it.

i’ll never nurse her to sleep again.

i’ll never hold a sleeping babe.

i’ll never lull her to sleep with a lullaby for her ears only.

it’s bittersweet, this parenting business. it’s all so grand, but fleeting and floaty and fantastic.

the sweetness drips.

the bitter fades.

we move on.

    Oh. How is the babe doing? More importantly, how are YOU doing?

    oh, gosh! i so know how you feel.
    there is so much wonderfulness (whatever, it can be a word) inherent with having our babes in bed with us, but it IS lovely to just have the husband there! maybe in another year i will be going through this same thing, too. for now, its 3 in one bed and 2 in the other! šŸ™‚
    p.s. i’m so happy that the package arrived safe and sound!

    Good luck with them songs, my dear. I hear you. Gotta get the mofo right, yeah?

    Came here on recommendation of my friend cIII, thought I’d say hi.

    I trust cIII. Boy’s got thunder in his head, he does.

    Good morning!

    Peace, Irish Gumbo
