Two births back-to-back. I had time to come home, take a shower, eat three bites of my vegan mongolian beef and get back up and go on out to the next birth. Up all night. My honey is home today and she came in with breakfast at 2PM. All the cats wanted to be on the bed so they were. A few tussles ensued. Mostly, I just want to cry. Everything feels too close or tender or breakable or I don't know what. Too too.

Maybe I'm just tired.

Hi Beth. Thank you.

And you dear R.

why not cry. You participated in the miracle of birth to coin a phrase. Tender, of course. Tired, well, hell yeah. Too close? The fine line between life and death and how exhausting the struggle is.

I admire you so. Cry and love and sleep.

You amaze me.

Yes. You are just tired. I remember that feeling. Why do babies want to come at the same time?

I love all the cats on the bed at once!

I felt the same way this week. I had a couple cries.
