When is just the right time to put him in his crate? (No need to call DFS, I didn't put any of my newborns in crates.) Did he eat enough? If he cries, do I let him cry, if so, how long. Will he eventually fall asleep? How long will he sleep?
Last night was a 'good' night. I crated him at midnight and he was QUIET and slept until 3:30. He, then, started scratching and I brought him outside to do his business- AND HE DID! I put him back in the crate and QUIET AGAIN!
So here I am, sort of adjusted to the 2 hours sleep I had gotten in the previous 2 nights, with a whopping 3 and a half hours sleep under my belt! I was refreshed and oddly wired. I don't know if it was all the sleep I had gotten or my beaming pride from the preliminary success of the crate and house training, but I wasn't sleeping.
Like many an insomniac, I went to my computer. I caught up on blog reading, hopping and dropped some A.M. comment love (I'm hoping it was coherent). Next step, the boob tube.
One word- infomercials! What is it about infomercials? Why do I always want what their selling? The 'hosts' are freaks and I don't believe a word their saying.

Why do they play them at the wee hours? Is it because people with sleep deprivation don't have the ability to filter. Their brains aren't thinking straight so they just pick up the phone? Or could it have to do with the reason for their insomnia? Financial stress, overweight?
Screw it - whatever the reason- my wish list got longer.
"Cheeks" - Crocs meet Birkenstock and claim to exercise your legs as you walk. Tony Little is the
"Ten Minute Trainer"- Imagine looking svelte with six pack abs and dropping all the extra L B's by just working out 10 minutes a day! 'Nuff said, right? Hook, line and sinker!
I'm certain that in the next few weeks I will be
