Now that I've had a BabyGirl, I have read a lot of information on the topic of sleep that i never would have read otherwise. One fact i remember reading is that we each have our own biorhythm that we are born with (i know what you're thinking: wow! rocket science! never would have guessed that one!). Duh, it's true, we all know some people are early birds and some are night owls.
Well, I'm a night owl. I always get a burst of energy at night. I am at my top performance when i can stay up til about midnight and sleep til 9am. I really don't even settle into a good sleep until after 6am. Anyway, i got home from the day's activities and had a hankering to write. Except i couldn't think of a single topic. I thought and thought; no success. I was washing dishes for about 30 minutes, and promptly at 9:30pm my mind was filled with about 4 different topics. I find myself in this position frequently. I want to write so bad right at bedtime.
So here's the story already. After the BabyGirl was born and i had so many problems, my friend Laura, who is an amazing cook, made me some lentil soup (which i love). Some of it i ate and some i put in the freezer for later. Once later came, i ate it, and then the tupperware sat on my kitchen counter for (no lie) 2 months. I kept meaning to bring it to church to give it back to her, or take it with me to her house. I mean, i see her frequently so it was pretty pathetic that i couldn't return her tupperware.
Then finally i remembered it on Craft Day when we made the adorable penguin. After such a long time i was embarrassed that i still had it, so i filled it up with trail mix as a decoy. On that day we were crafting away and needed an afternoon snack, so i said triumphantly, "I brought trail mix!" I got it out of my bag and set it out on the table and we munched happily while we crafted. I conveniently left out the part about "I brought trail mix IN YOUR TUPPERWARE." My plan was to "forget" to take it home with me. I hoped that it would blend in with all her other tupperwares, since it looks exactly like her other tupperwares, since it is her tupperware. And she would just put in in her tupperware cabinet without even paying attention. Or, if she did think it was my tupperware, she would be like me and forget to return it for 2 months.
Well, my plan failed. Turns out she's way better than me at returning tupperwares. Less than two weeks later she returned it to me FILLED WITH DELICIOUS HOMEMADE COOKIES. Oh the shame. Not only did she return it in a timely manner, she made cookies. Fabulous cookies, with oatmeal and almonds. And now, here i am again with the same stinkin' tupperware i could barely return in the first place! I was so happy to finally get that sucker off my kitchen counter, and now it's back. Each time it changes hands, the stakes get higher. Lentil soup, then store-bought trail mix, then yummy cookies. I'm pretty much going to have to fill it with champagne when i give it back to her.
