Time to wean!

The time has come to finally wean my little guy. I don't mind the extended breast feeding. I mainly object to the fact that I am exhausted all the time, and now so is he. He has developed a habit of waking up every 40 minutes or so, all night long, so he can nurse. Even if I get him down for an afternoon nap, he wakes after 30 minutes to nurse, and doesn't always go back down.
I'm so tired I can't even go running anymore. Heck, I can't even get motivated to go to the store for toilet paper.
I'm in danger of falling asleep every second that I am seated. I regularly fall asleep during conversations with people at home. It's not great.

But, starting out this exhausted, makes me not that interested in trying other options to get him to sleep. My husband works seriously long hours, so he can't go to work at 5 am, for a 2 hour drive, with broken sleep. He doesn't get home until around 7:30 at night, so that's just not fair to really deprive him of sleep as well.
I'm at a loss. I had hoped the baby would wean himself by now, but he hasn't.
I wish someone could wave a magic wand over him and make him decide he is a big boy who only wants to eat big boy food, etc.
But then at the same time, he is the last baby I'm ever going to have, so is it really that bad, not getting any sleep?

Sylar the saviour?

So, I'm just catching up on Heroes now. All the seasons, over the last many weeks, and now I'm approaching the final two episodes. I feel like producers ought to have at least created a final wrap up episodes to take care of the loose ends that I can tell are going to be hanging!
Anyway, whatever, tv producers screw us watchers all the time. Sorry, not profitable, too bad, no closure for you! I'm at the part of season 4, where Sylar is trapped in his mind, and Peter petrelli has joined him to free him, so they can get to the carnival and help Emma. Is it just me, or is this turn around in Sylar's character a bit much? He's sliced and diced people up and down the continent for the last few years. A short stint as Nathan, and suddenly he can't stomach being awful anymore?
I'm not sure I'm buying it. Possibly this is why it got cancelled.
I don't care, I always knew that Sylar had it in him to be a hero, rather than just a killer. I secretly love Sylar and hoped he would turn to the good side one day.( i guess that isn't a secret now is it?!)

Who has time to blog?

I think of some of the insightful blogs I've read, or the politically charged ones, or the whistle-blower style blogs. I barely have time to read them, let alone write something equally worthwhile. I have no idea how anyone has the time! I would love to write the kind of blog that people turn to for the latest uproar in the world. But for now I'll have to be content with finding the time to even scratch out a handful of meager words here and there.
