lack of motivation

I went to work with a headache last night.  A headache just from being tired.  Baby was pretty cooperative...she finished a feeding around 8 (when I got there), then was up at 12, 3:30 and again at 6 as I was leaving.  I came home and fell into bed instead of jumping into laundry and finishing dishes from last night like I had planned.  The kids had cleaned up the kitchen, but I needed to wash my big pans.

D got up with the kids to make sure they were all on the bus on time.  He came in panicked because he couldn't find the little girls' coats.  Oh, yeah, that's why I was supposed to come home to the laundry.  Coats were in the dryer.

D also got to clean up after the dog this morning.  He's an old guy and every once in a while needs out in the night.  But no one ever hears his whining, but me.  If he's ignored long enough, he will find a spot to poo.  Happy day!

I need to get my act together.  I have to pick Kelli up from kindergarten in an hour!  I'm still tired, and I am planning on a little naptime this afternoon as well.

My husband does not see sleep as a priority when he works overtime on the midnite shift. He tries his best to just ignore the fact that he has lost 8 hours of sleep and just goes on to go through his normal routine the next day. I think that's pretty common for people who work that shift and you all pay a price for it with your health. But it is really hard for people to respect the fact that you have been working while they have been sleeping.
