Pending Normality

There's a lot of things about our lives which have been sacrificed completely for the time being. Mother Petersen keeps reassuring us not to worry, things will eventually settle down and a schedule will return. Somewhere in my higher reasoning I know this is true, but it's hard to feel it right now. Writing, building, and cleaning have slipped by the wayside for now, especially since Esther's mom is here taking care of the cleaning for us and I don't even have to worry about it.

The sleeping situation was getting desperate enough that we were thinking about using a technique to keep Malachi awake for 24 hours just to reset his sleeping patterns. However, as of yesterday - as though it was a Christmas present for mom and dad - Malachi switched to sleeping two long four hour shifts through the night. He seems to be following the same pattern tonight, though regrettably an hour in we haven't started to take advantage of the face yet. The idea of a workable schedule and even more so a workable schedule for sleeping seems too good to be true so we'll see how it goes.

I did some laundry today, but other than that I spent most of the day playing games. Esther took the boy and the mother and went shopping for a good long portion of the day, leaving me to my own devices. After spending many hours dungeon crawling through Torchlight, I must admit a vague sense of guilt overwhelming me. There are so many things I could have gotten done...

Oh well, I have to preserve my gamer roots. Yeah. That's it.
