jan-27 min. poem

i want to curl
inside the heavy fuzz
of my tired brain

pull up the dark
cover of sleep
so hard to hold on to

but i will wake again
for milk for him
and breathe slowly in the dark

It's been 3 months since D was born-3 whole months and everything has changed. Well, obviously, right? I mean, now we have a baby! Now I'm a stay-at-home Mom. Now I've started going back to school online, on my way to get that blasted teachers certificate that I've been talking about for far too long. Now I've had to learn how to live on 2 hours of sleep at a time. Do you think if a person doesn't get into that lovely deep sleep that they can go insane? Because some days I feel like that could be true.

But then I look at this and all is so much better.

And here we are in 2008. This is the first year in a while that I haven't made any resolutions yet. It might be because I don't have a journal on hand. And I still can't think of this as my "real" journal, I miss that tactile sensation of pen on paper. I ordered a journal from Running Rhino, the best journals I've ever had, so that should be here in a few days. Until then? If I had to think of any resolutions:

1. Be a great Mom.
2. Do well in school.
3. Go for more walks outside.
4. Vote!
5. Read as much for personal fun as possible.
6. Write more, possibly try to get something published? Ahh, dreams.
7. And everyone's favorite: eat healthier. That means more sushi, right? I can do that.

The babe is awake and I should be off. Happy new year everyone.
