Last week, I had one really bad night's sleep. I'm not sure what it was...maybe the full moon or something. Regardless, the next day, I was exhausted, but managed to get kids to school, volunteer in the classroom, attend my older son's "end of year" program, etc.
When we got home, I crashed on the couch. "Bubba go play with Ben!" I yelled drowsily. The two of them went in the back yard. Awww, peace. Within a minute, Bubba came back in and said, "He doesn't want to play with me, can I go look on the computer?" "For what?!" "Just some Lego stuff." "OK...zzzzzz." At this point, I well and truly fell asleep.
No big deal. Some hand tools and cleaning agents and about an hour, and everything was almost back to normal (the sink is still draining a little slow). I felt like it was good penance for my inattentiveness.
I don't have any witty way to end this, so instead, I'll plug AWAARE.
