I think I'm about to start reading a ton of books. Having the tv for the past couple of days is making my brain itchy & twitchy. I feel overstimulated & wired. I have a lot of books that I haven't got to yet. Also, boys eat a lot of food even when they aren't feeling well. Gah. I am already tired of cooking & eating food that has gone cold. I get it why moms get so grumpy around dinner time now. I just washed the past couple days of dishes & my hands are all pruney. I just did not have enough spoons to get to the dishes until today. The drugs are making the mister pretty chatty. He even commented on it tonight. I think he's going to go a bit nutty when I go back to work next week.

Things we've learned:

1. Setting an alarm to adminster more drugs in the middle of the night is preferable to the pain waking up the mister. We got up at 3:30 am this morning. Didn't get back to bed until around 5:30 am. I definitely can't be pulling those kinds of hours & try to work full time. I had to crash again after making the mister breakfast & didn't get up until around 2 or 2:30 pm.

2. Sponge baths are hard & awkward.

3. Neither of us are keeping track of time very well. I think a routine is in order.

4. I am going to have to be organized when it comes to meals. I'm going to have to make two lunches every day - one for me to take to work & one for the mister.

5. I need to learn self-care techniques so I don't burn out. Perfect time to turn back to my yoga practice which was the plan anyway. I guess I won't be going to classes since money will be tight, but I have the knowledge. Time to get back to it.
