I used to think "well this job is a choice so I should just suck it up and not complain" but I'm at the 8.5 year mark with a traveling spouse so I've given up on that and complain when I feel like it. Alex had a nightmare last night, a bad one, and then slept with me from 4AM on. Sleeping with Alex is very close to that scene in 1984 when they put the rats in the cage over his face, except with no biting. Just wild flailing and tossing and turning right against you, with no hope of sleep.
All of this to say - I'm grumpy. I'm tired. I've got another week left of this. So.....I CAN NOT WAIT until the boys go to Saturday school tomorrow.
And next week I will have some great photos to share of a very special project.
