Is it time to go to bed yet?

Yeah, so what if it's 8:45 am?

Alex woke up at 1:15 and I was the one up with him for the next 4 1/2 hours. Craig was nice enough to let me sleep when he got up at 6, so I did manage another hour and a half before getting up. But my mood is all over the place as a result of such little sleep.

Plus, it's been raining like mad since yesterday, and it's windy and dreary outside.

And for the first time since doing the journal, my weight went up instead of staying the same or going down this morning. Which when you're bordering on one of those ten-pound divisions puts you back over the top is depressing as hell. Even though (fingers crossed) that's usually the #1 sign that I'm about to start my period.

In the words of Alexander...

It feels like a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day.

(no subject)

Note: Spending half an hour getting blue crayon and purple marker off white textured walls that aren't actually yours so you *have* to get it off does not help to improve your mood.

Why is it that 5 seconds of a child running away from you with a fistful of crayons, dragging his booty along the wall as he runs, can create a half hour's worth of work?!?

Oh, and it looks like it's my day to spam my flist. Aren't you lucky?

My last bit of whinging today, I promise

At one point today, I'd had hope it would improve. That was the point when Craig told me he'd come home after lunch and work from home so that I could sleep.

That hope went out the window when he called and said there was no way he could get away. And I just got off the phone with him again and found out he may or may not be home by six. Apparently, the problems with the client are really bad, and it gets done faster if all of them work together.

The only thing saving me at the moment is that Alex fell asleep about 20 minutes ago. Normally, I do everything in my power to keep him from falling asleep so late in the afternoon, but I just don't have the strength to do that right now. So he's sleeping and I'm doing everything I can to stay awake because I have no idea when in hell Craig's going to be home.

I lack the coherence to get any writing done, so my apologies to people. Hopefully, the next Frost chapter will be out tomorrow. Alex is back at nursery so I should have my day back. I got a good portion of my cleaning done today because of having to keep such a close eye on Alex so hopefully will have lots of time to write tomorrow.
