Nap Time is Not Going Well

Sam said he wanted to take a nap, even though he hadn't eaten lunch yet, so I put him into bed, and then just as I was putting him into bed he changed his mind and decided he didn't want to be in bed, so he's been laying in there moaning to himself for the last half hour or so, and then I went in to ask him if he wanted lunch, and he said no, and I asked him if he wanted to take a nap, and he said no, which made me realize that he just wanted to get out of bed and play, which is NOT an option, so I just put him down into bed and he started crying a little bit but has just now within the last few minutes stopped crying and, I think, fallen asleep. 

So he'll have lunch when he wakes up. 

Also, I have been scheduling a meeting between architects (who said that they would attend the meeting as long as I provided candy) and a guy in the Mayor's office (who has a very weird name which I will not reproduce here) (but his first and last name together rhyme with "Hollywood").  It can be tricky scheduling meetings amongst multiple parties via e-mail.  Still better than working at the Nobes, though. 

Speaking of the Nobes, I had a dream last night that they needed somebody to cover a shift there so they asked me if I could come back and work it, and I did and it sucked. 

What should I have for lunch? Breakfast, really, cause I haven't eaten anything yet today. 

Went to the Y and worked out, though.

Well, I have officially retired my trusty Motorola Razr in favor of a phone that can text message and surf the internets.  It is both exciting and sad.  I do like that flashlight app, though. 

Had a shitty weekend of Dracoola.  Rained out on Thursday and Friday, then on Saturday I was the senior company member at the show, and thus in charge of making the call as to whether we cancel or go on, with a close to capacity crowd, and it decided to rain off-and-on again all night.  And rain just hard enough to NOT cancel the show.  So we got a complete show in, but everybody got wet and uncomfortable as hell.  And we might have ruined some borrowed furniture.  But the audience loved it and we made good money on the show, so we can afford to buy the ruined furniture and buy everybody in the cast a drink so that they don't get too crabby, so I guess everything works out in the end. 

I'm still loving the job.  I feel like I have been dead for the last 10 years and somebody just came and woke me up and now I get to be alive again.  It's really quite wonderful.  The only thing the job is missing is a nerf basketball in the office. 

Oh, and since I'm feeling generally better about life and my hangovers seem to last for about 3 days now, I think I'm going to try and not drink all the time.  Yay, me!

Opening weekend for Dracula is over.  It went pretty well.  I'll still have to do some work at future shows, but now that the show is open I'll be focusing most of my attention at work on new building shit.  Getting the phone/network systems designed and some incoming phone line issues straightened out and starting work on maybe trying to get the address changed.  Things I'm not really looking forward to, but things that need to get done.  I think I'd much rather be building a coffin outside on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. 

It will be nice tomorrow to spend an evening at home, a luxury that hasn't happened in awhile.  My vow is to not waste it watching any TV shows (although maybe I'll waste an evening later this week doing exactly that).  Haven't had much quality time with the J-Dog lately, although we've found that we both enjoy me being away some evenings.  That way she gets some time to herself, and I'm not sitting around waiting for her to get home from work only to find that she has to spend the evening working at home.  And it makes us miss each other a little bit, and I have a theory that since we (Jeannie + I) spent a good part of the beginning of our relationship missing each other that it's something that we need to have in our lives in order to feel like things are normal. 

Going to see Junip at the Ottobar on Wednesday with Abby and a friend of hers.  Looking forward to it.
