It’s 1:34 in the morning and I’m up…
And I’m blogging….
Also as usual.
And since those two things collide way more than they should, I've decided to give you a detailed account of just exactly what happens after my children go to bed.
7:00pm – I tuck the shortlings in bed for the night.
7:05pm – I go to the bathroom in peace
7:10pm- I fix myself a drink.
7:15pm – I debate over a snack
7:20pm – Still debating
7:30pm – Decide I don’t want a snack and refill my drink
7:32pm – Hear tiny voices floating down the stairs
7:33pm – Yell at tiny people.
7:34pm – Listen really hard to see if tiny people did in fact, shut up.
7:35pm – open the laptop
7:37pm – begin going through emails
7:40pm – delete. delete. delete.
8:00pm – move on to “important emails”
9:46pm – remember that I haven’t taken my pills.
9:47pm – tell yourself that you are going to start taking them in the morning
9:48 pm – debate between taking your pills NOW, and then taking them in the morning… OR skip them now and take them in the morning, since you will be up soon anyways.
9:49pm – answer the telephone.
9:50pm – discuss business with west coast mom blogger business partner
9:52pm – jealously listen as she places her McDonald’s drive thru order and wish you had chicken nuggets. Or french fries. Or a block of salt. But only if it was a HOT block of salt
9:53pm – go into the kitchen and look for a snack
9:54pm – stare in the pantry
9:55pm – still staring
9:56pm – still staring
9:57pm – decide to get a drink of water
9:58pm – see pill bottles on the counter
9:59pm – try to remember if you already took them….
10:00pm – keep trying
10:01pm – still trying
10:02pm – ask Elisa if she knows if you took your pills. Become frustrated that she doesn’t know the answer
10:03pm – take the pills anyways, just to be safe.
10:04pm – forget what you were talking about.
10:05pm – get another drink, then go back to sit at the computer and actually get work done.
10:06pm – Get a text message from the person you’re on the phone with, while composing an email to said person.
10:07pm – Laugh at the irony of it all.
10:08pm – Say “Okay, we REALLY NEED TO GET TO WORK NOW.”
11:00pm – Hang up, look over pages of notes, devise plan of attack.
11:05pm – Remember that you need to finish up that other project that was due 17 days ago.
11:06pm – begin working furiously.
1:00am – Project finished.
1:01am- double, triple, quadruple check project…
1:20am – Everything is golden
1:21am – make a to-do list for tomorrow
1:25am – decide you’re not really tired, and see what’s happening on twitter
1:33am – think about writing a blog post
1:34am – write a blog post
1:58am – finish the blog post
1:59pm – post and good night, uh, morning. you know, whatever.
