I sincerely value the time that I have at home during the week. Full days on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Partial Days (meaning that I am unconscious part of these days) on Friday and Monday. Yeah, things are upside down right now, we’re in the midst of buying a house, expecting another baby and the transition of a new job. It is crazy but I’m actually a lot happier than I have been in a while.
Today was enjoyable. I was able to get some work done for a client this morning so I felt like I accomplished something. Allison watched Eva till she went to work and when Allison left Eva and I opened three LEGO sets that I bought back in 1998. These sets were the Arctic Expedition sets. I really liked how they looked and decided that I’d buy each set that came out. At this time I was buying LEGO sets directly from LEGO.com and bought nearly everything from the Star Wars line as well as these Arctic ones and some Mission to Mars ones. I’ve opened the Mission to Mars ones in the past I’ll have to pull those out another day.
Eva was great about working through the instructions with me. I would ask her for a specific piece and then she would give it to me and either she or I would put it into place. We put together the three sets and then I got my box of LEGO bricks that I’ve had since 1979. We played with those and made things and ended up playing for the whole two hours that Allison was at work. Whenever I would leave the room to check on something I could hear Eva making up little stories and playing with the pieces.
I really want to encourage her to play with these LEGO sets because they allow her to be very creative with her imagination. I figure that we could eventually make some LEGO sets up and play with them, then take some photos of them and we can write a story together. I think that Eva would like that. I know that I would.
I still need to get the hang of my sleep schedule on Friday. I try and go down for a nap at 1pm. Then I read a book for a page and see that my eyes close so I close the book right away and sleep. I generally have slept for an hour or two and then wake up fitfully for the next hour. I’d love to sleep a solid 3 hours at least but it is still not working for me yet.
