More Lack of Sleep.....

On Saturday night I was told by Capt’s father, (QfiL) that I had a flat tire. Luckily my car was in my driveway and Capt was able to change it.

My first reaction was, "Yes, now I have a good excuse not to go to work on Monday", because I would never travel 160 miles without a spare in my car.

So on Monday, after a planned meeting with a headhunter, I had the hole plugged and while I was there, had a 30,000 mile check up. I didn’t know what I was going to tell my job about not coming in on Monday, I didn’t want to lie and call in sick and I didn’t want to tell them that I had a job interview in Connecticut.

So, getting a flat tire was a blessing.


By being home on Monday, I got a chance to get sworn in at Town Hall, after doing all my errands and got a change to take a long nap. Two hours long.

Whew!!!!! My head spins when I think of how crazy my life is sometimes.

My son David came home from China last night. Jen, his twin, took my truck to the airport to pick him up late last night.

And on the way back to her apartment, a tire blew. It was a different tire than the one I just got fixed.

It was dangerous but she handled getting them to safety.

She called and woke me up after I had fallen asleep one hour earlier.... and I’ve been up ever since.

Even when your children are older you still lose sleep over them. I worried about them being stranded in a bad neighborhood, not being able to change the tire themselves (it is complicated) and being taken advantage of by a tow truck company.

It was great to see David, he’s been away for two months.

We are both driving to CT after work so he can pick up his car. I’ve been keeping it by me while he’s been away.

Hopefully he will do all the driving so I can sleep because:

No, you never quit losing sleep over your children - it's been happening regularly with me lately! Not good.

I'm glad they were OK! Mine are still little and I don't like hearing that I'll still not get sleep when they get older. I'm so tired!

Oh my! I hope you're catching up now!
