not that i have run out of things to write

It’s Son’s Hemo/Onc rotation that is sucking the life out of him and subsequently leaving me with just barely an hour each day to get my acts together. May does hang out in her crib or on the bed or wherever I put her, but those are the moments I run to drop a dump or wash the dishes or scrub the floor. Besides, writing is one of those things I need to be in the mood for, and often I’m in the mood for writing precisely when I have my hands full, or at night, while nursing May in bed, kinda hard to type.
Speaking of May, she still has not overcome her round belly, so we are still giving her a helping hand whenever she tries to turn over. She’s not trying hard enough. She mostly wants to eat her hands. Both of them. Simultaneously. I wish those lactation consultants could see her now. They said her mouth was too small to latch properly. Ha.
I’m thinking of dropping our CSA next year. There’s a dearth of leafy green veggies and an overabundance of ZUCCHINIS. Oh my god how many zucchini can a family eat ? 12 summer squashes/wk, each of them weighing more than 2 lbs. I mean, someone came to the CSA potluck with a zucchini brownie recipe, that just totally shows you how CSA members are struggling with this mountain of zucchini we get every week. Can’t wait for the parsley fudge recipe. gah.
You know what I hate? saliva going down the wrong pipe at 5 a.m.. there’s no way i can stifle violent coughs that wake up the entire household, especially the fussy babe.
i witnessed May drifting off to sleep on her own 2 nights ago, it was magical, the whole 3 minutes it lasted. then she woke up and i shoved a boob into her mouth at the first sign of rooting. what can i say, i was in a hurry to go back to sleep myself.
