this has been school vacation week.  this is a full night of sleep gone. and it is not the first, and for the baby, it is the second... though this one was fevered and not vomitous. which, aside from the worry being the same, is a miraculous lightening of the laundry load. miraculous.
i have been stumbling.  i am still.
its been a laughably long time since I've been so tired.  I can hardly think... I am obviously not on the top of my game anymore.  I'm sure I'll be fine by lunch, but now? as we wait for the bus i am hiding in here on the computer, barely able to feel my face. evidently, typing takes the little energy i have in reserve and i'm going to go lie down with the baby and hope she falls into a hot sweaty ball mess of sleep for a little while.  always hoping someone else will give me what i want. 
i'm definitely in a mid-life crisis.  how droll. _  i am disgusting_ there, i said it.

my own sleeping clock is busted, I need other people to cooperate to fix it.

I'm STILL catching up on laundry from my child's third bout with the stomach bug. It is bad this year, I'm sorry you even had to deal with it. I hope your little one is feeling better. It sucks seeing them sick, but this too shall pass.
