October 28th, 2004



Jet was up at both 2:30 and 5 and asked me to sleep in his bed with him, and when he settled, I tiptoed back to my room, though the second time by the time I got to my room it was already past time for me to have woken up.

Doing both the evening and morning duties is killing me, but Jet doesn't seem to want to let me go for either of them. So, tonight, Isabel and George are going to take Jet to the Rec. Center, call me when they leave and I'll probably go home and take a nap before they call me to tell me that they're leaving for dinner. I'll probably meet them there.

So I'm a might fuzzy today.

Moving to Mozilla

I've been running Netscape 7 and resisting upgrading to Mozilla 1.7.* because getting to Netscape 7 was such a pain.

Such was not the case with Mozilla 1.7.3. I just installed it and it just worked and looked, pretty much, like my old browser, with all the bookmarks that I had on my personal toolbar. Better yet, the mail tool let me resubscribe to my unsubscribed mail folders, which NS 7 just wouldn't let me get anymore.

Yay for painless upgrades!!

Wahoo! Isabel just called me to say that they're going to get Jet. Now for some naptime...

Yay! A Nap!

I got a nap! A good, two hour nap that I really needed and wanted while the folks were swimming.

I actually had a hard time sleeping as I had too many things on my brain and also wanted to hear the phone if it went off; but then I convinced my conscious brain that they wouldn't call until after 6, so I set an alarm for 6 and my brain finally let me sleep.

Right at 6:15, which was when I got my contacts back in and stuff, they called and told me to meet them at Souper Salad! *laughter* Jet had decided that we were going to dine there, again.

So I met them and Jet had had a great day. He'd only objected once in the morning to going to school, but when there he was very happy about going in. When they went in with him to take pictures, he was occupied enough to just keep going. When they picked him up he threw away a truck he was holding just to run to them and hug them tight. He's been spending more time with Granny and Grandpa tonight than he was yesterday. He's not clinging as tightly to me, so that's all to the good.


Maybe being up twice with Mom willing to make the concession to sleep in his bed for a while really helped his confidence or something. As this morning, he asked for Granny to help him with his pants and shirt.

I'm also getting to do my journal stuff earlier, so I won't be staying up to do it later. That should only help, along with Jet being tired from swimming. He's also been clean and dry today, even with the nap. So that's another indicator of less stress. I'm very glad of all of that.

John's coming in late tomorrow, the same flight I took in last Thursday, but I'll get to go an pick him up! Yay! So that should, at least, be more interesting than the drive the previous week. George and Isabel are staying until Saturday, so we should be able to catch up, a little, on sleep that morning, or trade off naps in the afternoon. Whew.
