Rough weekend

So, because my work forbids the use of flash drives, I am forced to use email to transfer my writing files back and forth. And of course, Friday I forgot to email myself my NaNo project. So, because I am a slave to external motivation, I did not get any writing done this weekend.

Yesterday was bad. I was cranky from lack of sleep (I woke up at 2 am after a silly yet disturbing dream), and was on overload from two small children who both demanded a lot of attention. Well, I wasn't the nicest daddy. So much so that Michele noticed and called me on it. Anyways, that was just one part. It wasn't too good of a day, emotionally, and it carried over a bit this morning. But things are better now. We managed to work out the problems this morning, so I think we're good. I just need to actually get more sleep. I may have to try mild sleep aids occasionally (Tylenol PM).

On the bright side, I got a new pair of gloves to use on my homemade punching bag yesterday. I'll probably go pound on that tonight, though we are going to the gym after I get off of work. I need to get hopping on fitness. I've been slacking the last few weeks and I can feel it. I know I won't be in the shape I wanted to be when we hit vegas next month. But I'd like to be closer than I am now.

Ok, back to the grindstone. Keep punching, people!

Everyone only has so much patience. It will run out. It's part of being a spouse to help you catch when yours is running dry and the bottom of the barrel is starting to show.

Sounds like your relationship worked exactly like it was supposed to.

I'm quite familiar with either leaving my stick at work or home, or forgetting to email stuff to myself. On a lucky day my wife will still be home to email me things, but frequently I'm left hanging in trying to get my work done because of it.
