“May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.”

"This report is maybe 12-years-old. Parliament buried it, and it stayed buried till River dug it up. This is what they feared she knew. And they were right to fear because there's a whole universe of folk who are gonna know it, too. They're gonna see it. Somebody has to speak for these people. You all got on this boat for different reasons, but you all come to the same place. So now I'm asking more of you than I have before. Maybe all. Sure as I know anything I know this, they will try again. Maybe on another world, maybe on this very ground swept clean. A year from now, 10, they'll swing back to the belief that they can make people . . . better. And I do not hold to that. So no more running. I aim to misbehave." ~ Captain Malcom Reynolds

Kyleigh is still having sleep issues here, so it's affecting all of us unfortunately. She'll sleep in her crib fine during the day, and even go down fine at night - but then wakes up just screaming in the middle of the night and will NOT get back to sleep in her room for anything - but as soon as we move her down to the spare room she quiets right down. Not sure if it is environment, night terrors, or just her asserting her authority - but it's getting to all of us. So, tonight we are going to try letting her just sleep downstairs & see what happens. Which means I will most likely stay down here on the couch in the sleeping bag as well - not our preferred method but we have to figure out something.

In other news, just realized the last novel in the Burke cycle by Andrew Vachss has been published :( I had to look back and think to realize that yes, it has been 18 books long - just doesn't seem that way. I've been reading them since his first one in 1985, and have always liked them - rather rough and gritty at times, but in a realistic manner. So - I'll have to find this one & add it to the collection.

Off to work for the day, hoping to survive the dog running me around again.

Good luck to all of you tonight! Maybe she's just having a princess and the pea moment, you know? :)

That's tough. One thing, night terrors happen earlier in the night, nightmares happen toward the wee hours. Dunno if that helps but hope you get more sleep soon!!
