Damn you, <i>Veronica Mars</i>! 13

Damn you, Veronica Mars!

I decided to give NikkiZ some Tylenol right before bed last night, so that if she’s teething it would help her sleep better. She and I both crashed around 8:30 or so, and I had just fed her. I was so tired, it took everything out of me just to stay awake THAT long, so 8:30 was quite impressive to me. MrZ decided after he watched 24 to throw in some of the Veronica Mars DVDs (he’s watching the first season because he, like I did, became incredibly addicted after just a few episodes) and I kept waking up and...

Shit. I’m late. And not in the good “Another baby!” way either. In the “Shit! I don’t have time to shower!” way. I overslept. Probably because of the whole having-a-daughter-who-hates-me thing. Who knows. NikkiZ started throwing her first temper tantrums this weekend. How old do they have to be before you can ground them? Is now too early?

While I’m not suffering from sleep deprivation, I’m trying to catch up on some design work I’ve been needing to do. Here are some I’ve finished the last week or two.
