May 17, 2009: The Light at the End of the Tunnel

It was late when we finally go to bed last night but with being able to sleep in a little it was not too bad although there were many interruptions during the night.  So it was a “holding ground” kind of night.  I am still really exhausted today but no more so than yesterday.  I really feel like we are nearing the end of the tunnel and can start to see the light at the other end with this massive lack of sleep.  We have been worrying for weeks about how bad this week was going to be and that was before going through the problems with my desktop that kept dying on me.  That really added to the problems and it was all downhill from there.

I have a full day of work today but it is Sunday and far less stressful than normal days.  Liesl was really exhausted from yesterday and slept for most of the morning until about one in the afternoon.

We managed to actually get some stuff done today and, for the first time in a long while, actually had a little bit of time to relax.  Not a lot of time but a little.

We didn’t do much actually relaxing today but spent most of any freetime just catching up on little things and getting things into place.  We have been so overwhelmed for so long that it seems like the house must be almost falling down by now.

We got an opportunity to go for a nice walk in the evening as well.  We took Oreo and Liesl out and did a good two to two and a half miles.  We have been missing our walks quite a bit recently.  We have not had any chance to take them at all and we have really been feeling the lack of exercise (combined with an excess of less than healthy foods.)  We were definitely feeling better after getting to take our walk.

My goal for this evening was to go to bed at roughly the same time as Liesl.  That did not end up happening but I did get settled in with a pretty solid plan of being in bed by nine thirty.

That also did not happen.  I ended up having a couple of issues come up at work and it was a quarter after eleven when I finally had a chance to break away from the office and get up the stairs and in to bed.  Dominica actually decided to go to bed as well which I was not expecting.

Finally, at least a chance to sleep potentially a normal amount.  And look, SGL is finally caught up as well!
