Trying to watch Synecdoche, New York but it's tripping me out. Normally this is a good thing but I was expecting something more... solid from a movie called Synecdoche, New York. I'd forgotten it was by Charlie Kaufman. My other option is Frozen River, the title of which sounds grimmer than I was planning to go just now. Maybe it's a light farce.

My baby is sick. He has a sore throat and a runny nose and after he coughs he looks up at me like, "Mommy make it better" but I can't and it's heartbreaking. I sent Tomas to the store for baby tylenol, a cool air humidifier and a Vicks Vapor machine thingie. That and a boob or two is the best I can do right now.

Tomas is off to some meeting and as a present for leaving me here with a sick baby (who of course didn't sleep last night) and the two girls he's going by the yarn store on his way home and buying me treats. I'm getting snazzy sock yarn so that once I'm done with this pair of shorties I can learn to make socks. After he returns with my new goodies I'll have enough yarn for 7 or so more projects.

Netflix delivered some 80's series called The Singing Detective. I can't remember when or why I added it to my queue but it looks entertaining.

Persona wasn't bad. I'm not sure I'm smart enough to have fully understood it but I enjoyed watching it, though I'm also not sure enjoyed is the correct word. Bergman is a director whose movies I find compelling even when I know I'm not totally getting it. Also I love Liv Ullmann.

Isadora's scarf is nearly done and the set of circular needles I ordered off of ebay should be here tomorrow so I'll be able to start on Jack's shorties (or I may go ahead and make them longies since it's already Aug.). After that I'm going to make socks with this sock tutorial I found on Ravelry that looks easy enough for even me to follow. I stumbled across a hilarious baby yoda set this morning that has a little kimono top and a felted yoda head hat. It's freaking adorable but probably beyond my skills.

Jack had what we call in the mommy trade a Bad Night. He nursed for about 6 hours straight. Tomas leaves for Defcon tomorrow night and I'm going to be managing the boy alone for three nights in a row. Ugh.

As sweet as it is to watch Jack snooze atop his daddy's chest at night it is not fun when Tomas has to get up to work (for the second night in a row) and I'm kept awake for hours because Jack refuses to sleep anywhere but in his daddy's arms. Argh!

I'm part way into Romance & Cigarettes and so far it is nothing but strange. Very very very strange. I'm not sure if I shouldn't be watching it in a sleep deprived state or if that's the only way one should watch it.

I'm sick (sore throat) and my wisdom tooth on my left side seems to be growing into my cheek and possibly infected making it impossible to chew food on my left side. I already can't eat on the right side because of the tooth that needs the root canal and cap. I feel like a horse that needs to be put down. We're supposed to be getting a car on Thursday and I guess after that I'll see if I can afford to have any dental work. Tomas' mom thinks that her regular insurance totally covered his wisdom teeth being removed without the dental insurance even getting involved. We'll find out I suppose.

Also I think I'm starting to get depressed. I can feel it opening up and trying to suck me in. I'm trying to stay kinda busy during the day which means I'm not taking naps. Not sleeping much at night because of the wee nursling and I'm barely eating because of the teeth, it's no wonder that I'm sick and on the verge of depression. Not a great deal I can do about it though. I'm cramming Vit. C and trying to up my water intake. At least I'm still on various vitamins, a prenatal and fish oil supplement.

Anyway. /whine

I'm reading an interesting book about two important Atlanta families (Ivan Allen Jr's and Maynard Jackson's) one black and one white and how their histories tell part of the story of race relations in the city. It's quite interesting. I'm not getting through it very quickly because I still haven't mastered reading and nursing at the same time.

Also I finally got the dvd for Across the Universe and loved it. I watched all the extra features and then viewed it with commentary over the weekend and wish there had been more to see. I'm such a musical fiend. Julie Taymor is seriously talented. I ought to buy her other two movies. OH! And in the supplements they called the boxes sequence used in the military induction scene 'Cornell boxes'. *squee!* i really HAVE to get some books about him. I keep waiting for one to show up on Bookmooch but I don't see that happening anytime soon. Last night I finished watching the Elizabeth sequel during a nursathon. It was beautiful but lacking. I never felt engaged. Up next are Once and Away From Her.
