Monday: Woke upon hearing things 6am. With Alexandra for an hour before heading out. Standard school, then went to IKEA write-in from 2pm for 2hrs. Home about 5pm, an hour with little one, then she was cranky and slept. I did dinner and report cards. Attempted to put her to sleep about 10:30pm. Resumed about 11:45pm until 12:30am. Downstairs.
Tuesday: Awake after 6am again, dreamt everyone was crying. Standard school plus duty, work plus extracurriculars, picked up boots and lightbulb changes, home before 3pm, with Alexandra for 3 solid hours (including standard snooze). Then 6:30pm to try and have her sleep (after failed light removal), and sudden iPad dropping broke me. Completely. Dinner and more report cards, dead inside. Little one to bed somewhat after 10pm, had six ounces, from crib to bed after 11pm. Downstairs.
Wednesday: Awake about 6am. Standard school though had to deal with writing awards poll setup. Report card comments in the afternoon (done thank god), then yoga. Home via the store, arrived by 5:30pm, time with Alexandra. Which morphed into sleep time around 6:30pm. Able to leave her in crib after 8pm. Went downstairs before 10pm to sleep, that out of it.
Thursday: Awake about 5am, might have slept a bit after until 6:15am. Spent an hour with Alexandra before heading out. Standard school, plus handling math contest stuff. Home before 2:30pm, others home at 3:30pm, time with little one including standard snooze. Back out again before 6:30pm for Arts Night. Home just after 9pm, and usual 90 minutes to get Alexandra to bed. Then another 45 minutes a little before midnight for new change, new bottle, and bed again. Stayed upstairs.
Friday: Awake for brief comfort 2:15am. Awake before 4am to try and get little one back to sleep. Downstairs 4:15am. In midst of snow, bashed car on two curbs arriving at school, now it steers funny. Got another teacher to deliver awards, got car to mechanic, detour in their loaner via house for snow tires when problem couldn't be quickly diagnosed, actually home 2:30pm. 3:15pm, trying to help put little one to sleep. Fail. 3:50pm, same thing, leading to a 20 minute snooze, play, bottle, and a standard snooze that stretched out to 6:30pm. Switch to Mom, dinner prep, bedtime began somewhat before 9pm. Went downstairs 10pm to collapse.
Saturday: Six hours straight asleep, followed by a bit more. With Alexandra from 6:30am to after 9am, including snooze. Headed out with her an hour later to the WriteIn (also same day as the parade, oh right). She was a big hit there, definitely likes looking at faces and doing her bashful bit. There was a nice closet for her mat too. Bit of a snooze, longer one later in the stroller (before 2pm). Mom got her a bit before 3pm, mostly writing after that (including a sprint to beat prior sprints, hah). Left after 5pm, trapped briefly in World Exchange parking, home before 7pm, dishes, bed for little one at 8pm. Then catchup on stuff, didn't get to grading. Especially when she woke just after 11pm, and 100 minutes later, as this post goes up, still back at square one in terms of sleep.
