a girl, a guy, a tomato, a bean, and a bear

It's been a bit of a tiring week. Evelyn has been sketchy on her naps this week, and even when she will finally drift off (out of sheer exhaustion) it's not without much vocalization letting me know she's not pleased with the arrangement. In addition to fighting her to take some naps, I haven't been getting that much sleep myself either, which just leaves us both short tempered.

Did anyone notice how I didn't follow up with you on how great my plan to workout in the morning before Evie wakes is going? Yeah, well, that's because it's not going so great. I have managed to do it two or three times, but lately Evelyn has been waking randomly during the night again. She hasn't done that in weeks and weeks, but suddenly, it's 2 AM and she's awake. The next night, 4 AM. This morning 4:45. I thought briefly about trying to just work out after I'd gotten her back to sleep, but I ended up going back to sleep too. I can't help but think I'd be feeling better if I were able to get in my workouts, but there's a physical exhaustion limit and I think I'm tottering close to it.

She's "working on" a nap right now, and it seems promising (THANK GOODNESS). But then my dilemma is this: what to do?? I want to go back to sleep too. I should workout. I have homework to do and about a zillion little projects on my to-do list. I have a funny feeling of what I might end up doing...
