I’m sorry that I haven’t updated in awhile.
It’s been crazy busy at the moment.
The sort of week where you simultaneously want to live in a cave removed from the rest of the world just so you can get some peace and quiet, while running on pure adrenaline to get yourself to the finish line, or as close to it as possible. The insomnia doesn’t help, but when you’ve built up such a tolerance to the pills that it’s either sleeplessness or taking four pills to get to sleep, the former is better than the latter.
The only thing that makes it bearable is coming home at night to a darling puppy (okay, not puppy but more 11yo golden retriever with Peter Pan syndrome) who quietly lays his head on your knee and looks up at you to ask if you’re okay.
The best cure in the world for these long, tiring days is a puppy hug.
p.s. Any tips on combating insomnia are welcome. Well, any that don’t involve warm milk / meditation / sleeping pills / valerian / chamomile tea / late night exercise (walking, skipping and weights) and wine since all the above have been tested and went down in a glorious flaming pile of FAIL.
