I've been "off the grid" for more or less the past six months. In case you were wondering why, here's an itemized list of my daily routine, expressed through my inner monologue.
- 5:45 AM: "Better get the baby changed and fed before her Mom has to go to work"
- 6:30 AM: "Ooo, good! The baby's asleep! I can clean up all this crap from dinner last night."
- 7:45 AM: "Damnit, the baby's awake. Oh well, maybe she'll take a nap later."
- 1:00 PM: "Maybe she won't take a nap. Oh well, I can throw in some laundry or something."
- 3:30 PM: "Hey, your Mom's home! Now I can make dinner for us, hopefully before she needs to finish grading papers."
- 4:45 PM: "Okay, dinner's finished. Time to take the baby again."
- 6:30 PM: "BABY, HOW ARE YOU STILL AWAKE. THIS IS A TERRIBLE X-MEN POWER."
- 7:30 PM: "CRANKY BECAUSE YOU'RE TIRED, AND NOT SLEEPING BECAUSE YOU'RE CRANKY. HOW HAVE HUMANS LASTED THIS LONG?"
- 8:00 PM: "Thank goodness, she's finally asleep. Time to do some stuff!"
- 8:01 PM: "...like hang up the laundry!"
- 9:00 PM: "I wonder when she'll be ready to go to college."
