Delay of Blog. Five Yard Penalty, Repeat Last Hour.

It wasn’t quite 11:30 when I sat down with Sage. I figured she’d be asleep within half an hour — possibly optimistic, but not wildly outside her routine.

It is now 1:35, and I am still holding her. Attempts to put her down have been met with sudden wakefulness and reproach. I’m typing this one-handed.

I’m going to go try again. Wait here.

…Nnnnnnope.

I’m getting exhausted, but she’s juuuuust fussy enough that I can’t even sleep in the recliner with her in my arms. Sometimes, when I’m really tired, I have odd audio hallucinations (for lack of a better word) as I’m falling asleep — noises like several radios all being rapidly manually tuned through the wavelength spectrum. I may hear words, notes, or just random vocal sounds in a range of voices. Upon waking, I can never remember a thing specifically that I’ve heard.

I’ve fought those off twice now just during this post.

It’s 1:45. I’m going to try again.

I didn’t even make it out of the living room.

But now she’s starting to scream. This is going to be a long night.
