DOING THE MATH

I'm tired so often, especially in the spring and summer. It's not just work. It's not just the full calendar. In fact, I think I've figured out what the problem is...this is a typical weeknight and each one of these things wakes me up a little bit more.

2:00 a.m.Anders finally comes to bed
3:30 a.m.Karin comes shuffling in, curls up on the floor/bench/end of the bed
4:00 a.m.Sun brightens up, birds start their early morning calisthenics
5:15 a.m.Have to pee
6:00 a.m.Anders' alarm goes off
6:45 a.m.MY alarm goes off but I haven't been really asleep since 2 a.m.

My French colleague is in Lund this week, and we had a laugh this afternoon when she came in and said "Bonjour!" to me. For a moment, I thought she was speaking Swedish (which she doesn't know), and I heard "Bond djur" and for the life of me I couldn't figure out what pigs and cows had to do with anything.*

Cracking Me Up: Fortune Teller

Of all the wonderful tributes to mothers yesterday, this one really touched me: Mother Love

*Bonjour in French, for those who might not know, is Good Day, and bond djur in Swedish is, literally, farm animal(s).
