I am tired. No wait ... that's an understatement. I am beyond tired ... I am what tired would be AFTER it swam across the English Channel, carrying a load of bricks big enough to recreate the Great Wall of China, and then dancing the rumba for twelve straight hours. I have never been the kind of person who could turn off my brain at the end of the night and just go to sleep. In fact, I think that my brain goes into overdrive at the end of the day because it knows that I am lying there in bed with nothing to do so I might as well be dwelling on all of this crap going on with Rachel along with ways to end the world hunger problem, how to find world peace, and the perfect paint color for the stairwell project that still isn't finished.
So for about the past week - ever since we found out about what our lovely child was sneaking around and doing - I have gotten very little sleep. I am tired. I am exhausted ... I just can't sleep. So my goal for the week is to give it a rest. ALL OF IT ! No more talking and talking and talking to Rachel about all of it - she has the information and now it is up to her to use it wisely. Plus at least for this week, I am not going to worry about finding an agent, sending article queries, stressing about whether or not I will ever find another job, stressing about whether or not we will ever get out of debt, etc. etc. etc. Nope - not this week. This week I am just going to let it be. WHATEVER THE UNIVERSE SENDS ME THIS WEEK .... SO BE IT !
