I was going to post something bright and pithy. It’s a nice day and that usually puts me in a good mood. But I am not in a good mood. I think it is lack of sleep.
My parents arrived on Saturday, shortly before Jay, I and the girls returned from a party. I was pretty wiped out and wanted to nap, but my parents’ arrival changed that. The week was crazy, but for some reason, my parents have taken to going to bed around 8:30-9. So…that is before the girls go to sleep. The time that they were here, they did clean out my fridge and do the dishes. The picked up Soleil from the afterschool program twice. But when I asked for a night off, they couldn’t do it. Nor would they help with bedtime and putting the girls to sleep or read to them.
It was a frustrating visit. They stopped by only because they were in the Northeast. But still…. I’ve been getting to bed around 1am, and Luna’s been having nightmares so she comes in and sleeps with me. She’s not the calmest of sleepers.
So, I think this is why I am in a bad mood. Jay should land around 9pm and then be home by 10:30 (luggage and all that). My parents left this morning.
