So I haven’t been sleeping all that well lately. This isn’t attributable to Daphne (although she does wake me up sporadically), I’ve just always wrestled with resting.
That said, I wrote my post yesterday in a bit of a haze. And while I was doing so it seemed somehow familiar. As if it were writing itself.
I gave it a quick proofread, hit “Publish,” then noticed a “Similar Posts” link at the bottom of the page entitled “Zen and the Art of Baby Maintenance.” And then it hit me how I could auto-pilot through a post… I’d already written one just like it.
So I edited it a little and linked back to the first post, as if I’d intended to further the discussion somehow. But I eventually came to the realization that I hadn’t really said anything new. I’d just reiterated every point I made a month ago, but the writing was much, much worse.
And so I decided to blow the whole thing up, and pretend it didn’t happen.
Therefore I have a two-fold apology to make.
First, if you didn’t see a post yesterday, I’m sorry. There was one, but it wasn’t worth reading. I promise.
And if you did read yesterday’s entry, I’m also sorry. I didn’t realize at the time that I was repeating myself.
An ancillary reason I took it down was because complaining about that particular subject twice made it seem like I have anger issues. I’m not. I honestly just forgot that I’d already whined about that topic.
Now, the real unfortunate part in all this is that the adorable picture of Baby D I’d included was deleted along with her father’s drivel. And so I hope you won’t mind my including it here, replete with a BRAND NEW CAPTION!
Thanks for bearing with me. I realize deleting things on the Internet is kind of against the rules. But this is my blog; I make the rules here.
See you tomorrow.
