Goodbye, Nuk, Goodbye Sleep

It's day five. Day five, you ask? Day five of Murray sans pacifier. It has been a very long five days. It takes us 45 minutes to put him to bed, and to top that off, he's awake at 5:30am. On the bright side of things, he doesn't wake up in the middle of the night several times due to loss of his pacifier. However, DH and I are exhausted. We'll get through this, I am sure, but life in our household is a bit less peaceful lately. Even the dogs are affected. Rudy groans quite loudly when Murray's cries (screams) wake him, and Nala won't leave my side. The latter means that whenever I need to sleep on the floor in Murray's room, she's right by my side. Don't get me wrong - I love that she feels the need to be with me. The problem is, Murray begins to bark at all hours of the night. Woof, woof. If the cat walks in, it starts all over again, this time with Murray's version of meow.

I had the best day today. My friend Roxane and I were FINALLY able to meet again. We had a fantastic lunch at Toscana - I only wish we could have had more time. However, I'm grateful for the time we had. Thanks, Rox! I wish you well next week!

Hey, thanks for mentioning our lunch. It was so very nice. I'm so glad it finally worked out!

Have a great weekend and week ahead and I look forward to hearing from you (hopefully) while I'm at St. Ben's.

P.S. Love your descriptions of Murray's woofs and meows, even if it must be very trying to hear them at an early hour. Someday you'll see how precious it is. :) Someday... For now, you need your sleep!
