Comments for Russell the Sheep
Russell the Sheep: 12/01/06
I completely relate to Russell the Sheep. He's a sheep with a simple goal: to get a good night's sleep. He does everything he can to fall asleep: he wears a hat to keep his head warm, he puts the hat over his eyes to make it darker, he tries ear plugs, he moves to a different spot, and so on. Then in the morning none of the other sheep understand why he's still in bed or why he's so groggy later.
If I were a sheep, I'd be Russell. So many nights I end up pacing the halls, trying to sleep on the couch upstairs, meditation and even, counting sheep. I even wear a night cap to bed, though not as fanciful a one as Russell's: mine is black.
Two Grumpy Girls:
Harriet and I have caught Sean's cold (the one that is still making the rounds at school). Harriet and I are both grumpy. Harriet has been griping all day long except for when she's either nursing or eating. I'm sure her throat is scratchy (because mine is). Yesterday she nursed all day long except for when I put her down to work and save for a brief afternoon nap. Fortunately she was so tired by bed time that she was able to get a full night of uninterupted sleep. Today is another day of listening to Harriet complain about her cold and me doing my best to comfort her.
