(Is wirelessly a word?)
It got to be about 9:30 or so and I realized there were no sounds coming from the living room. I had sent the boys to bed about thirty minutes prior, but I thought Big Daddy was laying on the couch reading his book.
After gathering up my laptop, all its accouterments and my cell phone, I turned off the lights, locked the doors and headed up to our bedroom where Big Daddy had apparently snuck off to.
Only, he was asleep.
As quietly as I could, I slid in the room, plugged in all my essential elements and attempted to get in my side of the bed. He woke up. I was going to work for a while so I had my laptop with me.
I say to him, "I feel neglected lately."
He looks at me accusingly and says, "That's weird. I don't have a laptop and an iPhone."
While his tone was light and playful, the meaning behind the words didn't change. I put everything down and asked him if perhaps we should come up with some kind of rules.
We didn't get very far because he never answered me and eventually just went back to sleep.
Now I am at a loss. There is no way that I can be done working by the time he gets home from work. Yesterday, he walked in the door, much to my surprise, at 3:00. Today, I am feeling completely overwhelmed because on top of my work stuff, other things need to be done as well. Like grocery shopping. With coupons.
There is no way I'll be done by the time he gets home at 5:00 today.
How do you balance it all? Is sleep overrated? Is there some essential element that I am missing?
