Running Flat

Captain’s Log. Daddy Chronicles. Diaper Date 1574. This week has been hard. Going back to work has not been the easiest. Getting the kids up and out the door, getting myself ready, dealing with traffic – all not fun.
Too Tired
Last night I was so tired that I fell asleep in the eldest’s room putting her asleep. And Mrs. Captain was so tired that while she was putting the diaper dweller back to sleep, she feel asleep too – leaving me to sleep on the comfortable floor in the eldest’s room. And what song did I wake to two hours later? Manners and Etiquette. God does have a sense of humor.

The Flat
My second day back I was greeted by this sight when I was getting ready to leave.


A flat tire.  On the Supermobile.  I thought I had enough time to fix it and make it to work, but then my jack broke. Thanks to a big save by my mother-in-law and my neighbor I had transportation and the ability to get my car fixed.

In the meantime, waking the girl up in the morning should be a stunt on Fear Factor. She kicks, screams, and I think the other morning she tried to put a hex on me. It is not going well. Hopefully, this will improve next week or I might be teaching over Skype and just staying home.

Work has been interesting. My voice is not used to talking for 6 periods. It is getting weak and fragile in my old age. But, I shall journey on.

I welcome this weekend with open arms and gratitude. It better be a good one.

For now, Captain out.
