Today is off to a crazy start. I am running on 3 hours of sleep. Our preschooler was being nutty last night, would've been funny if it wasn't so late/early. I am feeling fairly good. I do pretty well with extreme sleep deprivation, until I don't. When I hit the sleep wall I will go into a state that can best be described as giggly-weepy, but I am not there yet.
The morning has been nothing short of a whirlwind. Eric was out the door shortly before 8am. I managed to get myself and the girls all fed and dressed and the house picked up a bit before the plumber arrived to check out some leaky pipes.
The plumber is currently upstairs "gaining access to our pipes," or as I call it, poking a hole in the wall. So I have decided that this is the best possible moment for an interview with Cordelia. I don't mean to exclude Elise from the interview, but her ability to vocalize is currently limited to crying, "ahhh", and "ahhh goo."
So let's just proceed with the cutting edge interview shall we?
