Cross-Bleed

Standard

I’m not sleeping well lately. Bizarre, disturbing dreams. Waking at three a.m. and lying awake for hours. Sometimes giving up and pulling out the laptop to work for an hour and a half before I finally crash again, thirty minutes before the alarm goes off.

After Monday’s post I realized my problem is cross-bleed.

Here’s how my life is supposed to work: kids go to school, and I work. Kids come home, and I stop working to be mom and domestic goddess household coordinator.

But with six late-start days, four sick days, and three school holidays (none of which, I might add, overlapped), the upshot is that the last several weeks I’ve been working and parenting simultaneously, all day, every day.

It’s no wonder I’m feeling this way.

Sometimes I lie down with Michael and twilight-doze….or sometimes really doze….at naptime. It’s a bright spot I really need. Because when I wake up, this is what I see six inches from me.
