Sleep? What's That?

I'm chronically sleep-deprived but last night was tough. I finally got to sleep a little after 2 am.

Then my Eldest Daughter came down with her older daughter around 3 or 3:30 am. The 4 yo was warm and sounded croupy and we talked a bit about what to do. In the end she gave her a dose of Children's Advil and put her to bed with her, propped up with pillows. If she'd gotten worse my daughter and son-in-law would have taken her to Children's. This way, at least, they all got some more sleep. I know from experience none of them would have slept at the hospital and I would probably have ended up with the baby for the rest of the night. And, really, my granddaughter wasn't sick enough for that. She sounded bad but her mood and energy levels were normal. If she'd been sick enough to have to go in she'd have been much more lethargic.

I got back to sleep. My Hubby was up and woke me up coming back into the bedroom. I got back to sleep again. Then I just clicked on at 6 am. At 6:15 am I gave up and got up half an hour early.

I was out of the house by 8 am, walking the dog. I left to take Dear Child to school 15 minutes later and worked all day. Then I accompanied DC to a play date when I picked her up at school at 4 pm.

I went to a class at 8 pm, then went back to the office until the building closed at 10:30 pm. I'm so tired that I don't even feel tired. But I'm going to bed anyway.

I just want to take the time to thank you for all of your encouragement, advice and support on our former blog (We Need To Be Debt Free).

Unfortunately we had to discontinue and completely remove the blog because some very disturbed person found it necessary to expose my blog to my employers. I have no idea who they are our how they know where I work but, I couldn't risk my job. Fortunately, I still have all of your excellent comments and advice in my person email account for reference.

My wife and I sincerely appreciated everything you have told us and are working on a long-term plan for our finances in addition to clearing up our debts.

Thanks again,

JW, I'm really sorry to hear that. I'm not sure why, but you had a real pack of negative commenters and it was really unfortunate.

I'm glad to hear that you and your wife are continuing with your effort to get out of debt and that you're making plans beyond that too.

I'd be pleased to hear when you do wipe out your remaining debt, if you care to share that.

I hope you'll keep reading and commenting as I also work towards becoming debt free.
