Home Spun reprints #59-61 Losing Sleep
We all have weeks when we have a million things to do and we don't seem to be getting any sleep. Last night, I had one child complaining about nausea, another ended up sleep walking in front of the bathroom (she needed to go, but she didn't seem to realize the bathroom was open and empty), and then nauseous child started snoring. Loudly. You would think I would have had a little sleep once the snoring stopped, but when it stopped my mind filled with thoughts of sleep apnea and I had to check that everyone was breathing. They were.
Add on to this my monthly struggle with insomnia, a backache (I threw out my back doing yoga. Ironic, eh?) and hypothyroid and I'm not exactly Miss Perky in the morning. I'm more of a Miss Percolator. I know coffee isn't the best thing for me, but some days it's the only thing that keeps me going. There are places to go and things to do. Homeschooling can't stop every time I lose sleep.
But it will slow down a bit. Time to unschool.
