Is it Saint Swithin's Day already?

Oh my goodness, it's December. Kali is eleven months old. I'm a delinquent blogger... what else is new?

Last night we discovered one of the drawbacks to the Cry it Out method of sleep training. About half an hour after we put her down, Kali started to cry. This is not unusual. We ignored her for about 10 minutes, but it seemed to be escalating. I went to check on her.

She was sitting in a puddle of vomit, and in a very poopy diaper.

Needless to say, she had two baths last night.


I'm weaning off the Zoloft, finally. I've been on antidepressants for two years. Is it really lame and bad of me to say that I preferred being on the full dose? Ever since I've reduced the dose I've been having more trouble waking up in the morning, and less motivation to do stuff around the house. It's quite a remarkable difference.

Instead of begging my doctor to let me increase my dose to its former level, I've decided to wait and see. Kali and I will be leaving for our Island in the Sun in a week, and I'm hoping that a month of sunshine will help my mood. Maybe weaning off my meds in the winter was a bad idea.


My teaching job has become crazy. I think that's all I'm going to say, for fear of being found and identified...

Okay, let's just say that I'm not feeling charitable towards my students right now. I know I need to employ some important Jewish principles here, but what I really feel like doing is saying "screw you guys, I'm going home".

I meet with the Rabbi today to discuss the issues with my class. Wish me luck.


I finally got my period again. A real period, for sure. Today is CD13 and I felt my left ovary twitch. I'd better crawl back into bed and whisper sweet nothings in Mr. December's ear.
