Tired and No Sign Of Sleep In Sight.
Man am I tired. My X is out of town this week and won’t be back until the 23rd. My daughter is going through a growth spurt and is crying out in the middle of the night in her sleep. I even gave her Tylenol and she is better with it but still crying out. Every time she cries out, I wake up, so I have had broken sleep for the past three days.
On top of that, I had a synopsis due to my Editor yesterday and I received copy edits this week that are due on Tuesday of next week for my book Animal Lust. All that with a day job, relationships, and a book I am supposed to be half way through writing by now.
My nanny had volunteered to help me out this weekend so I could get through all 400 pages of CE’s, but she arrived sick today and said she could not help me now because she needed to rest. Sigh. My family all lives on the east coast.
So what is a single mom with kids, a deadline, and no help to do? I have no clue… TV for the kids maybe? or possibly no sleep this weekend for Mom? Both?
Either way, I am thinking I should go home sick from work today and go to Starbucks and work on the CE’s. Sigh.
If you have any other suggestions they are fully welcome. Please help me!
