One of my biggest fears finally became reality... Well, my biggest fear after my house burning down or a child being abducted or going down in a plane or a number of other horrific events that I think about right as I'm falling asleep every night. But my worst, non-blood shed, no-one-dies-or-is-seriously-injured, nothing-happens-to-my-kids worst fear. My computer crashed. That's a hassle. I had virtually nothing backed up. That's a near tragedy.
We definitely had documents on there that will be a pain to replace - my resume, reports for this non-profit Board I'm on, but the most devastating thing is losing about 6 months worth of photos - My 40th, Tink's 3rd, Christmas, Halloween, Pink's first dance recital. Nothing was backed up. Nada. Gone.
Along with my computer, I believe I've crashed. I am beyond exhausted and I don't know why. I feel like I can barely function anymore. I feel like I'm on the verge of slipping into a coma. And, like, I don't understand all these people talking about how they NAP by the way. Blogs I read, friends in real life... they engage in recreational day sleep. DAY sleep! I mean, I can't get enough sleep at night let alone during the day. Am I missing out on something here? Do people actually have children that allow them the luxury of napping AND sleeping at night? I think I got totally ripped off.
So, back to the point. Tired, drained, over scheduled... How do I reboot myself? I'm totally snapping at my husband all the time, so we're not really communicating well. That's not helping matters, and I'm pretty sure it's my fault even though I don't want to admit it. Maybe I just need a vacation. Oh, wait. I'll get one of those the end of August... a lake house full of 4 kids that I have to supervise the large majority of the time. Family vacations with small children... insanely relaxing, I know. Can't wait. At least it will be a change of scenery.
