Thursday, April 10th

So today started out with a bang. Last night we found out that Tim's flight on American Airlines was cancelled and we were up until 2am trying to figure out his options. (We finally were able to get a flight with Delta the next day.) When we were finally able to get to bed, Ethan woke up. He was very restless, he was crying, and of course he was tossing and turning in our bed for the next few hours trying to get comfortable. I finally took him into the living room around 5 am so Tim could sleep since he had to work in the morning. Ethan was up for about 45 minutes before he and I finally fell asleep on the couch. I then had to wake up 2 hours later to take Emily to the dentist to get a tooth pulled. Which, by the way, she did really well with.

Those who know me know I LOVE my sleep. How long do you think I can keep running on 3, maybe 4 hours of choppy sleep? Now don't misunderstand me, It's not that I can't do it (I've done it many times before) but who wants to? So, the day has just begun and I am already exhausted. I still have to get our laundry started, (which there is a mountain of), go to a 2 hour staff meeting, figure out a way to get Emily to her soccer game while I am gone, and do a service project for Scouts tonight. Also, Lost is on tonight, so I have to make sure there is time for that, Yeah! (I hope it's not another re-run). I am hoping that in between all of this I can maybe catch a nap. Do you think the laundry could wait until tomorrow? Anyway, it's not going to be a bad day (I promise I KNOW what a bad day really is), it will just be a busy day where I simply go through the motions and hope things run smoothly. Wish me luck!

Sorry to disappoint you but no new Lost episodes until April 24th! (at least that is what says)

Good luck with your crazy day!

This is turning out to be a good way for us to talk. I think that I have talked to you more in the lst couple days then the last 6 months. I am glad to see that crazy days run between friends. Sometimes the crazy days are better than the boring ones! Love and miss you and thanks for the comments. Jody

I don't think you'd be a Gatherum if you didn't like your sleep! My sisters and I all laugh because we all remember whenever we'd sleep over there growing up how we'd be up at 7:30 or so and just have to wait forever for all the kids to wake up! I'm impressed that you can get by on so little now! Although, yes, I wholeheartedly agree, who wants to?
