Week of Money: Where.. ouch.. it is hard to get back into the post-holiday groove
5:18 a.m. — I wake up somewhat tired at 5:18 a.m. because Little Bun is screaming and screaming… crying out for whatever reason (nightmare). I curl him around him and “Shhhh” him in an attempt to get him to go back to sleep for another hour.
??:?? — Little Bun is up. It must be midnight or 2 a.m. He goes to the potty then says: ALL DONE SLEEP? No way.. Mommy is tired. I’m still recovering from my cold. I negotiate with him that he can have milk early and then it’s back to bed because it’s still night time. He agrees with the plan.
11:02 a.m. — We get to the grocery store, and I stock up on some non-dairy creamer for work, pick up some sushi from yesterday (on sale, $2 off a box, which Little Bun is VERY excited about), and check out. $22.39
5:35 p.m. — We finally go to leave (the other kid missed his nap so he is kind of being a monster, as they all are if they don’t sleep, and is acting out terribly), and the kid runs out and pushes the button before Little Bun.
??:?? — Little Bun wakes up during the night a few times, and I am jolted out of my deep sleep. This is why parents of younger children are so out of it — we can’t get a solid deep REM cycle in to feel rested. I could go right back to sleep right now.
??:?? — Little Bun wakes up at the ungodly hour of 4 a.m. He wants milk. I grab his milk. He wants to go back to sleep, and then wiggles for 5 minutes before saying he needs to go potty. Then he doesn’t want to sleep “All done sleep“.. And gets up.
??:?? — I wake up having slept but not feeling so great. I had my sleep broken a few times from Little Bun squealing.
6:30 a.m. — Oh. It’s “late“…
7:49 a.m. — I get to the office, blow up the microwave with my cooked eggs (oops)… and end up cleaning it. I should use a larger container so that it cooks faster in 30 seconds over a larger surface rather than a smaller one. Note to self.
8:08 a.m. — Microwave clean, sandwich in hand, I head down and start working. I try to get stuff done but PEOPLE ARE SO LOUD. STOP TALKING. Why does everyone need to know everything? …. I’m annoyed because I have a lot of work to do and not a lot of time.
9:18 a.m. — Meetings all day. I grab my notebook and head off.
11:02 a.m. — Time for lunch.
4:45 p.m. — I get Little Bun and head home.
5:35 p.m. — I don’t even remember what happened. I probably fell asleep early.
??:?? — Little Bun wakes me up at 4 because he needed to go pee but also heard the snow tractor and wanted to see it. Sigh.
5:03 a.m. — I wake up at 5. Again. Little Bun. He doesn’t want to sleep.
