My life lately includes much more Click and Coffee than usual to the point that my stomach is starting to rebel and my blood sugar is on strike. I am learning I am just not up for this at my advanced age. It is harder than I expected to manage a dual personality disorder when you aren't medicated. See I am trying desperately to balance this life:
With this life:
I had my first fail the other morning. I was walking in the door early in the morning thinking the kids would still be in bed. Large coffee in hand to start a very long day on very little sleep when the door is whipped open by my daughter who starts questioning me about where I was and telling me how "freaked out she was". D'oh!
The kids are not home alone! Let me say that right up front. I have family here and they know that.
She then proceeds to tell anyone and everyone who will listen that I did not get home until 6:16 and she knows I was not at work because I don't work until Thursday. Damn, I wish my kid wasn't so smart!
A while back I think I blogged about not having a life and not knowing what to do with myself without the kids. Now, I am not a crazy bar hopping fool but I can find things to do with my time. I work really hard to keep these lives separate but it is at the cost of not sleeping because most of my awake time is spent with them.
