Monday was teaching, talking to a student, being a client for students, and library duty involving a print and a checkout, all before noon. Then some prep, shopping, and home later than intended, close to 2:30pm. Two hours with Alexandra, including the usual snooze. She wouldn't go to sleep easily after 10:30pm, we traded off. Similar issues after her feed at 3am. Tuesday was less busy but still delayed in getting home until after 1:30pm; did three month photographs. Two hours was from 4:15pm to 6:30pm. She fell asleep about an hour after that... it does take over 30 minutes to put her to bed, what with the waking and feeding and calming back down.
Wednesday morning there was Flames hockey in China. Though I was teaching (former student came to ask me a logs question at lunch), then duty, then prepping, then the pickup was scheduled for the movie theatre at 3pm. Had wee one from about 4pm to 5:15pm, then marking quizzes, etc. Alexandra slept with Mom right through to 9:45pm though. A little hard to settle her down after, and brought to bed with us around 4am. Thursday morning she had a long stretch of sleep in morning.
Got home Thursday after 3pm, a bit later than hoped. Spent about 3:30pm to 6:15pm with Alexandra, though 45 minutes of that was a walk with Mom as well, up to the nearby viewpoint offroad. (Step counter officially broke then, looped belt around it.) Only the last 20 minutes was a snooze. Then tried to cut nails a little after 8pm, and cut her finger. I'm terrible! Bleeding stopped after over 20 minutes. ^_^; Was consoled by Mom. Bottle and bed was after 10:30pm. Still into bed with us at 4am.
Friday was looong. Teaching, anime club, little things like a call, COMA twitter, talk of student walkout, prep work, uploading files, getting shirts and lights (and duct tape to fix my pedometer). Yet home for 2pm, with Alexandra from 2:15pm to 4:15pm including a half hour snooze by her (and a longer one by Mom). Handling emails, then made dinner, as the lights flickered over weather. Back with wee one 6:45pm to 8pm. Finally ate dinner and Wynonna, and COLLAPSED, vaguely aware there had been a tornado.
Woke up at 2am during the feed and put on my pyjamas. Gave wee one a bottle at 7am, but officially started play time at 8:20am. (She does like her Mortimer moose.) Went through to 10:35, including a half hour snooze, and surprise diaper download (so soon after yesterday afternoon). Brief handoff, then Mom was off to her Zumba class. Time from 11:20 to 2:25pm included two snoozes (of 20 min and 35 min) and her smiling at me as she fell asleep which was so beautiful. Using a blanket buffer was such a good idea.
Rest of the afternoon/evening was marking tests/quizzes while observing things online, giving a bottle a bit before 8pm. Can you tell I put these things together in the evenings? There's no way I'd remember otherwise.
