Toad’s Weekly Assessment #4

Forgot I had this scheduled to post automatically! So I had to edit in Thursday and Friday. Sorry about that. It’s been a rough a rough week. For a variety of reasons.

My sleep cycle has been completely flipped around again. I’ve just been sleeping when Little Bear sleeps and hoping he will go back to sleeping at night again. No idea why we constantly do this other than the fact we are naturally night owls. It sucks. There is nothing in this country that truly supports the night owl life – or more significantly, the night owl child. I think we are what, the 12% of the population and no one cares until adulthood when we join the workforce? That’s when people care. We happily fill those critical spaces people desperately need but otherwise we are basically screwed.
