Grand Resolutions

So remember that post I wrote last week about how I was finally adjusting to my new normal, that I was being happier and not wasting my time missing out on the moments...

What was I thinking?

Maybe it was the lack of sleep (Isaac has a cold and was up coughing/trying to find medicine in the middle of the night), maybe it was because I forgot to have breakfast, maybe it was not taking my Vitamin D (I keep it at the office), but my first scheduled work from home day was hard! Olivia got up early, and was so clingy! I couldn't get her distracted by anything she normally likes (books, trains, tupperware) but she just wanted to be sitting in my lap and looking at pictures/videos of herself . She wasn't even distracted by her favorite Youtube show (Pocoyo). She was fussy but wouldn't take a nap until 10:30 (late for her), and my silly vitamin-d-deprived, hungry, sleepy brain didn't even realize that she slept for 4 hours! All I could think of while she napped was how much work I could get done before she woke up hungry and ready for more attention.

So when Isaac finally got back from his work meeting, I was spent. I finished off my work, shut off my computer, let Isaac make dinner (which he was planning on doing anyway), put Olivia to bed right on time, watched a couple of shows on Netflix, then went to bed early.

I'm learning that sometimes, even grand resolutions fail, and it is just not a good idea to skip breakfast :)
