Attempted Sleep Locations in the last 24 hours

In our room alone while SwingDaddy was working late (two hours)
In our room with SwingDaddy (15 minutes)
In Q-ster’s room (two hours)
In Buster’s room, glider-rocker (20 minutes)
In our room with SwingDaddy and Buster (15 minutes)
On floor of home office inside Superyard plan pen with Buster (1 hour)

Now I’m trying to get through a lot of work and stressing. It’s been hard to concentrate lately (irregular sleep patterns, maybe?) and now a good friend at work has received a preliminary cancer diagnosis. We’ve divided up his work temporarily so that he can focus on his health and determine a treatment plan.

I’ve made a stew that I can take over to his family along with some Livestrong wristbands later this week. I don’t know what else I can do besides try to pick up his office work until he knows more from the doctors later this week. We have an unusually high number of young friends who are cancer survivors, so there’s a lot of hope along with the worry.

P.S. Re-reading this I realize that I should say that the boys sometimes sleep really well, even occasionally all night, and now and again simultaneously. Just not last night.

It sounds like you've got a lot on your plate, plus the sleep deprivation. I'm thinking of you, and your coworker.

I'm so sorry about your friend.

I'm also sorry you had to sleep in a play pen!
