Burn Out

Sigh. It's almostafter 3 am and I'm sitting here posting.

My son (the littler one) is sick and has been waking up every hour or two crying. Makes it hard to get to sleep.

Even without that, though, I don't think I'd be sleeping much. I'm burnt out. Burnt out o to the point that if I was referring to an actual fire, there'd be charred bone exposed at this point. Work, life, it's all been exhausting.

...

He's got a bad cold, runny nose and a fever, and just can't stay asleep for long. The last time he woke up crying, I finally picked him up out of bed and laid down on the couch, holding up, and covered us both with a blanket. He curled up a bit and snuggled against me, and for at least an hour, he seemed a little happier. Then he wanted to go back to his bed, so I just put him down. I don't know if he'll stay asleep.

Sigh. Oh well. I'm gonna try to get to sleep myself, although with him waking up and crying so much I dunno if there's any point. G'nite.
