Hi. Working on very little sleep here, so I don’t have a lot to give tonight. I try to stay a day ahead (at least), but I have two drafts not yet ready to go and not enough brain power to do anything with them right now. Tonight, you get stream-of-barely-consciousness. Let’s see how it turns out.
Jack was up from 2am to 5am last night, and so were we. I dragged myself out of bed around 6 because that’s almost the only time I can work, and I do have to actually do some work. That was painful. Jack didn’t nap today, which is both surprising (he was super tired today, considering last night) and not surprising (naps are VERY hard to come by these days), so I didn’t get that window to myself. I was able to answer a couple of emails during the day, but that didn’t get me very far, so I’m staying up late tonight to get some stuff done.
That is probably going to backfire on me. He went to sleep right away tonight (John didn’t even finish the first bedtime book), but it’s impossible to predict anymore when Jack will sleep through the night. It’s easier if I stay pessimistic about it and assume he will not. Not a lot I can do about whether he sleeps or the need to stay up to work. It just is, and it won’t last forever. It’s not his fault he’s having trouble sleeping, and it’s hard to get worked up about the ravioli he throws on the floor when he’s only doing it because he’s tired and cranky and doesn’t know how to fix it. (I do – GO THE **** TO SLEEP.)
Enough of this. Gotta work. Gotta sleep. Gotta try again tomorrow.
