Between work and school I drove 350 miles yesterday. Last night was Selfish Mom's and I didn't get to stay too long. Traffic was terrible coming out of Boston so I didn't even get to the hostess' house until 7:30. I went home around 9 and then had to do two hours of reading and shower, etc. Keegan was up a lot last night and had to be tucked back in three times. He has been having some sleep anxiety both at my house and Tom's. You can be sure I blame myself. This morning I felt terrible and called in to work. After dropping him off I came back home and slept from 9 to 12. I can't say I feel too much better but I really want to go to class. We'll see how I feel after some lunch. This is just another reason I am not thinking of pursuing another degree right now. I am enjoying class and I am glad that I have this opportunity. But this is quickly revealing itself not to be the right time in my life for school on top of everything else. My young son and soon to be young marriage are much more important.
