Tired, so tired...

I can only stay for a moment. Work is crazy busy but I'm stealing a moment to say something here so that you won't take me off your blog roll. So that you won't forget about me!

We are moved into the new place completely now. We moved in two parts because we couldn't get out of our lease until the end of July but we had to move in on the 15th of July so we subletted our old apt. for 2 weeks. We had to leave some furniture in the old apt for the subletter, so we moved the rest of that stuff this weekend with the help of an awesome mover from craigslist named "Valentine". He is from Trinidad and he kept saying things like, "Thanks for the exercise!" He was not tired.

We cleaned the crap out of our old place and we got our full deposit back. Every time I leave an apt., I clean the crap out of it and every time I move into a new place, it's a filthy fucking mess. One day this cleaning Karma will pay off for me, I'm sure. Well, the deposit, we got that back, so I guess it's payoff enough.

The new place is in complete chaos again. We had only just begun to get it organized and now a new wave of crap has entered the space. It's unnerving and dup and I are both so tired because also, it's really hot out.

Poor Finn has excema. Monkey, he could be allergic to wheat! Dup has excema, and we're not entirely sure what causes it. It's a horrible affliction, esp. when it gets on his handsome face. Once, when it got really bad and in a very dramatic moment, I took down all of the mirrors in the house, so that he wouldn't have to look at himself.

We think it is probably caused by a combination of things: allergic to certain foods, Stress & Weather changes mainly. These three things seem to feed off of eachother. It's a vicious cycle!

When it was really bad, we were consulting all sorts of people and schools of thought on the subject and one of the books we were reading was "The Yeast Connection Cookbook", which is the cookbook that accompanies, "The Yeast Connection" and "Tired, So Tired! The Yeast Connection." The last one, even though we've never read it, is our favorite. The whole philosophy behind these books is that some people are allergic to yeast, usually people who have taken a lot of antibiotics in their lives. I think there is some truth to the whole thing and some of the recipes have been helpful. Dup is not entirely convinced that he has a wheat or yeast allergy but I definitely notice a huge difference in his skin and his energy level when he's cutting back on it. ANYHOO.... it's become an inside joke to us because the title of the book is so stupid. Whenever one of us is really tired we'll be like, "Tired, so tired!"

I thought this story might be funny in some way...

Oh so tired indeed.

you had excema too when you were 8 weeks old, lasted awhile then went away, very common.
Since you are tired, so tired,
I booked a flight to come and visit for two months and help you. I will let you know when to pick me up.

That title made me laugh, too, even before I read your joke. I would submit "Tired, so tired!" into the Competition, Best Joke Phrase Between Me and My Sweetie. I'm sure someone's running a contest like that, somewhere.

I had excema once, I tried putting all sorts of different salves and lotions on it, to no avail. UNTIL!! I found this stuff that amputees put on their stumps ( I shit you not). It had magnesium or something in it and it was like a miracle cure. I'll try to find the name of it and get back to you.
BTW, could you please thank Dup for the excellent post regarding the lost diary, I really enjoyed it.
