4 am means crappy writing.

I have been up since 4 am. For no reason, I just couldn't sleep. And it is getting really difficult to function and accomplish anything on no sleep.
Anyways... sorry to complain, it just sucks and I feel all teary when I think about it. I lay there praying for sleep last night. ugh.

Of course the scary political situation here in Canada probably didn't help. Our 3 opposition parties have agreed to topple our governing party and take over the government in a coalition. What the heck? Doesn't the fact that we just had an election and democratically chose our government mean anything? Doesn't the fact that the economy is already on shaky ground and that political shenanigans (like staging a coup) make it worse, mean anything to these guys? Or the fact that one of the parties involved exists for those in Quebec who want Quebec to separate from Canada?
I am not all that politically informed anymore, I must admit, and I am not one to share my politics here or anywhere, but this is all a bit scary to me. I guess I can just pray for the best resolution for all of this.

Personally, I am having a lovely afternoon. Cup of tea, cozy in my house while the snow blows outside, kids all occupied with paints or computers. Baby just started to cry, so I guess I am done blogging for a bit, but I hope you are all snug and warm with your families tonight.


  1. snow? how fun.... for a little while, anyway...

  2. Enjoy your blowing snow. And don't move to the US. Our politics aren't much more fun than yours. :)

  3. I'm finding myself scared about the whole thing too. It seems so unbelievable to me but last night as drove aimlessly, lost in Vancouver I was listening to CBC and the were commenting on how similar this was to the Joe Clark situation when we were kids. I don't really know why but it made me feel better that we've been this way before and yet are still all here.

    Hopefully tonight brings sleep. I'm feeling the same way only about running. I haven't gone for a run for a week and I'm feeling a bit desperate. Hugs.

  4. I know nothing about Canadian politics but I can relate to getting up at 4am. My baby didn't sleep well last night.

  5. Waking up and not being able to sleep is so awful. I wish for you sleep and peace in government...

  6. Wow, your politics sounds more wacky than ours right now (which says a lot!) I'll have to read up on the situation to which you refer. I hope you get some rest my friend...

  7. Come on over. We have Barack and the sun is shining and it is a new day over here.
    Or just rub some Vicks on your feet, put on warm socks, drink some spicy hot cocoa and sleep tight...sweet dreams
