I woke up at 3:30 am and since I couldn’t get back to sleep, I decided to get up at 5 am to go the gym. After that, I grocery shopped, cleaned the house, made dinner, fed the kids breakfast, and lost all of my steam around 10:30am.
At that point, I was good for approximately nothing for the rest of the day. The kids are so used to being neglected by this point that they just play together and entertain themselves all day long after I retreat to rest. If they think I’m sleeping, they just work out things out instead of crying or asking for help. I can’t decide if it’s pathetic (as a reflection on me) or praise-worthy (good job, kids!). Maybe it’s both.
At 4pm I left for a five hour shift at the Pizzeria. It was like going from zero to sixty; all of the sudden I was out of bed and lifting huge things, running around like crazy and doing all sorts of stuff. I came limping home and am now back in my favorite place: bed.
In the meantime, Abe took lovely pictures of the girls.
