Getting too old?
So I gamed late last night (by my current standards) leaving the game around midnight, and getting home around 12:30, to bed around 1:30am (after the necessary decompression time). The alarm went off at 7am, and I was barely able to turn it off, stumble into the shower and begin my day. Three large cups of coffee later (and 2 hours), I am still pretty groggy. Luckily I am just giving tests today (and grading) but I still feel icky. There has been a distinc tlack of sleep this week akin to the infancy of the kids. Will has been up, he was in our room two nights ago when my Father In Law was visiting, and I have been out early to school. I hope to be able to relax this "Fall Break" (Friday to Monday).
At 38+2weeks I've noticed this trend of recovery getting longer and longer. I have a cough that has lasted weeks now, my body is getting bigger and it is taking longer to lose weight, a good night's sleep is not enough to rejuvinate me. But, maybe I will be able to turn this around if I am able to start up yet another exercise routine. My main problem is fiding a routine at all. Sigh.
Carly informs me that both kids cried for several minutes after I left for the game last night. Another batch of gamer orphans (for an hour before bed time). Oh well. I've discovered my new group is filled with parents of young kids. So maybe we will start to get them all together. That would be cool. And maybe open the door to more baby sitters.
