I honestly thought this time I had at home with my spouse away in the USA would be a breeze. I had time off from work. I had plans to cook lavish meals and bake gluten free treats for Max for class. I was going to go to bed when the boys went to bed and I was going to sleep for as long as they slept.
Well life has not unfolded as I expected it to.
I don't know if it is because of the stress of my father in law being super ill, or other family issues, but I have not been sleeping at all, or sleeping very poorly.
I have given myself a black eye - which was my own fault and an example of why 39 year olds should not throw tantrums. The dog (great dane) has knocked me down and hyper extended my knee. The temperature has been FRIGID - below -30 - and we have been unable to go outside and subsequently we are going stir crazy. I have not had access to a computer to decompress by blogging, or facebooking, or emailing. It has been a LONG, LONG six days.
