Jeremy’s in Minneapolis until tomorrow. The house is both quieter and more hectic in his absence. It’s quieter because I can usually get the kids to sleep by nine pm and then I have the rest of the evening to myself where I read or watch TV which usually doesn’t happen when Jeremy’s home. The rest of the evening meaning until 10 pm when I try and go to sleep. It’s more hectic because the division of labor is not there – there is no tag-teaming of chores. I have been having trouble sleeping for the past week, a little bit anxious about all the stuff that’s going on – nothing terrible, just a lot of work in a short period of time. Early waking for most of the week – up at 4 am. But last night, I had both trouble falling asleep and the early waking, so I’m operating on about 4 hours of sleep from last night. Tonight I have a new plan, at 10 pm, I’m going to go sleep with Edda and hopefully her peaceful, warm body will help me fall asleep.
