I was surprised to find out that my cousin is in a play in London. I had no idea that he was signing to go away that far for so long. It's great to hear that the play is getting excellent reviews. His Tony award winning partner went with him, of course, and apparently they will be there a while longer for a project of his own. How exciting! I know that they are also considering a luxury paris apartments rent for get-a-ways to travel and see other things. Boy do I wish I could join them sometimes!

I think we've found a new definition to the meaning of insomnia. Every time the baby goes to sleep either I end up trying to catch up on the things I need to do or I can't sleep myself. It's more than annoying and I'm always feeling like some sort of zombie. I know that he'll eventually get on a schedule, I'm just hoping that it will be sooner than later...by a lot.
DD has been asking for a drum set for as long as I can remember, and she's only six! LOL I was going to get her one of those "toy" drum pads so that it could be limited as far as noise goes, but they ended up discontinuing a bunch of them and the ones that I had chosen are gone. So instead I started looking at "real" ones, even though they can be slightly pricey. I found an excellent electronic drum set that I think might suit her, for now. Who knows, I could have been stifling a prodigy all these years already LOL!

My extended family likes to do a lot of traveling. I could only dream of doing the the things they have been able to, but maybe one day. One set of my aunts and uncles are cruise addicts. They have gone all over the place and every year they take a minimum of two cruises. It's great that they can still do so much being in their eighties now. My grandparents did a few cruises when I was younger. As much as I would have loved to have gone, it was really fun when they would bring me back souvenirs. They collected things for me from all over the place including The Bahamas, different parts of Mexico, and as far as China. My Ex and I used to have conversations of taking the kids to the Dominican Republic since they are partially of that decent. I always thought the experience would be great for them and wanted them to learn Spanish. Of course one of the reasons why I wanted to go was for the glorious beaches and to see other places that people don't really talk much about, like the turks and caicos resorts. There are some absolutely fantastic islands that I may never get to see, but I plan on making it to at least one some day. I'm not sure which one I would pick if I had that chance but I have a lot of time to think about it. Maybe some day we could take a cruise of our own and see more than just one. We had better start saving!

The only real place I have to sit is in my glider. It's not a high quality one and it's firm, which can be good but when it's all you've got it gets to be really hard on my back. I've been thinking about getting some sort of insert or memory foam seat so that it's easier on my lower back and hips. I feel old but until we get some new couches and seating I'm going to have to find some short cuts somewhere.
I don't know what's with this baby but he just won't sleep on a regular schedule. He will stay on one close to a week and before we know it he's pushing the time back further and further. It's hard not knowing when or if you'll ever get to sleep. Making appointments is nearly impossible and the way things are right now we have quite a few of them. I just keep prying that he does something soon because this is just getting to be way too much already.

It's been really difficult to sleep lately because the neighbors have had their TV on in their bedroom which is next to ours. The way we normally counter their noise in the living room is to turn our own TV on but we don't have one in the bedroom. I'm thinking it's time to get one though. I'd love to have on a flat panel mount so that we still have room to put things but I'm not sure the wall or ceiling would hold it up. We need to figure something out because not only would i like to be able to relax in bed, I'd love to be able to sleep when I need to.
