More strength, please

Camping trip over and done (post with pictures to come as soon as my friends finish taking pity on me and send me some of theirs); car emptied and cleaned; laundry in and awaiting hanging.

So, of course, since I have three days' worth of teaching work waiting for me, I spent the hours from 2:30-4:30 am wide, wide awake. Yay!

I resorted to my tried and true method for wooing sleep -- I ran a bath, dropped in some lavender essential oil, and grabbed a book. I would have headed for the computer to work if I could have found any pants -- it's cold in the basement!

15 minutes into my bath, here comes Thing 4 in all of her fit-throwing glory. "Would you like to join me?"

"I can't, I can't!" (Guess what the new phrase du jour is here?) At least she didn't throw herself on the floor.

Then of course she got in, hung out, then we went to my bed, where she lay in my place, and when I asked her to move over so I could also go back to bed, I got more of the same.


If there were no pesky work waiting for me, I might be able to nap today. You can bet she gets to nap, even if I have to resort to duct tape. Oh well, this, too, shall pass.

Good thing she's so cute.

You are soooo much more patient than I. I'd have had the duct tape out last week. :-)

Oh it's the cuteness that gets them out of most things for several years...why doesn't that work all the way into grown-uphood???

There's a reason they're cute! Ooh, duct tape! I hadn't thought of that...
