For the last few weeks I've been playing retro Nintendo games in my spare time. The problem is, just like when I was a child, I become obsessed with the games. Even to the point where I dream about them and it causes problems with my sleep.
Rachel calls these "Tetris Nightmares" which she also experienced during the Tetris craze in the 90's.
Last week I had "Dr. Mario Nightmares" and this week it has been "Solomon's Key Nightmares." I think I better give up the Nintendo for a while so I can sleep in peace.

I thought I would announce to the world that my little chunk (and I credit his new found abilities to being such a chunk) fulfilled every mom's dream on April 27 th 2008... he slept 12 hours without a peep, at just 4 months of age mind you. To add to all of the jealousy that I know you are feeling, I myself slept a good 9 hours straight that night. I know a few moms that probably are thinking about taking a knife to my throat right now, or better yet while I'm sleeping my almost nightly 8 hours of sleep. HEHE
Did I mention that he is usually in bed by 7:30 PM and sleeps until 8:30-9:00 AM. Obviously my love of sleep is a genetically inheritable trait.
BTW, don't go calling child services on me, I really am putting Joshua to sleep on his back, he just prefers his side... and anywhere in the crib he can get to.

So I'm always thinking about writing something on the blog, but I never do (I usually just tell James to write about something). Why is that? Well, I don't know. After thinking about this for a while I think it might have something to do with my AP English class. I haven't told many people this because I still feel pretty embarrassed and upset about it (so why not tell the world now), but I got a 3 on my AP English test which is, let's just say, pretty bad. Bad enough that I didn't get credit at BYU for the class. I've always prided myself for doing well in school and this kind of crushed me and made me feel self conscious about writing anything. Well, I think it is about time to get over my fears! Just don't go critiquing my writing skills or lack there of OK.
