Quick entry on Thanksgiving

Well, it's the day after Thanksgiving, and I'm fighting a cold.

I'm not sure if it's a genuine illness or just my body telling me to take it easy.

After waking up at 1:30 AM Thursday morning to go to work, I was already tired.

I managed to make it until 6:15 or so, when I got home.

My wife drove us up to my sister's place in Tacoma.  Though I almost can't sleep in cars, I managed to snooze most of the way.

We had a great time up there.  Good food, nice chats with family, watching my son run around and play.  I even got a quick catnap in.

at about 7:00 PM, we headed home.  By now, my wife was tired, so I drove the way back.

At about 10:00 PM, we were home.  My wife put our son to bed, and I got ready to hit the sack myself.

At 1:30 AM this morning, I got up for work.  By 6:00 AM, I was so tired I basically flopped into bed, asking my wife to let me sleep as long as possible.  I had a sore throat and that odd sensation I get in my stomach if I haven't had enough sleep.

She was nice enough to call her mom and see if she could take Declan for the morning.  So I got a few hours of sleep, and got up at 11:00 AM to go pick him up.  The nap really helped; though I don't feel 100% yet, I do feel a lot better.

But I need more sleep soon.  I'm hoping the writing goes well, so I can take a nap when my son does.

As tired as I was and am, I wouldn't have traded it for any amount of sleep.

Hope your Thanksgiving was great, too!

Well, I'm gonna agree with your body and say, "Take it easy."

I'll try. Usually I get more sleep than this, though not enough.
