Things that happened today:
Assisted puking daughter at 6:30a.
Received a text alert at 6:45a about an armed robbery in the wee hours. Original reported location was near my house. This would have been a good time to give up and go back to bed.
Took both sons to
childcarepreschool/parents’ morning out, starting my work day an hour later than usual.
Had a long, difficult talk with a graduate student.
Had a talk with another graduate student, who may need to take a leave of absence.
Cleaned up puke covered bed and daughter, shortly after children’s bedtime.
Tucked daughter back into bed, turned out the light, and, literally before I closed the door, had to turn light back on. Cleaned up daughter and bed again. (Parenthood: Not for wusses.)
Learned that Steve Jobs had died.
I think I’m just going to try again tomorrow.
