So, Miss Butterfly flew out this morning at 6. She’d gone with her father to a party, and I didn’t even stay up until she got home, I put Mr. Ink on bedtime duty. Unfortunately, sleep was well interrupted by fireworks all over the neighborhood. Then, I was woken up when Mr. Ink came to bed at 12:40, then again woken up when he decided an hour later that he couldn’t sleep without a shower. Then woken about an hour after that with a smoke detector battery that was failing. After that? I was pretty much wide awake with a headache. I had to get up at 3:30 anyhow so I gave up on the attempt to sleep, as all it resulted in was a massive headache.
Miss Butterfly is winging her way across the country as we speak, she’s made it to St. Louis and will get into Philly before lunchtime if all goes well. I am glad she’s got the opportunity to go and she’s really looking forward to it, but I didn’t want to send her. I am becoming a very selfish mother.
We’ve got a lot of people off this week at work, so I am at work on about 2 hours uninterrupted sleep. However, it’s also very slow, so I admit I am hoping that I’ll have the opportunity to skip out early and go home and nap. We have an event to go to tonight, one we won’t miss, so it would be nice to get a nap in.
But! I finished the singles for my first TdF project, so I can get my plying on soon!
One thought on “Ooof”
So sorry about your lack of sleep – nights like that take it out of me, and I bet you, too. I hope you get that nap!
The singles look amazing! All those spindles and bobbins, you are going to have so much lovely yarn!
I am one of five people at work today, I would say we usually number closer to 40. None of we 5 are working too hard, as you can no doubt tell. 🙂
I hope you have a slow and easy day as well.
