I have been trying to change my schedule so that it is normal, but it's more difficult than I thought it would be. I went to sleep when the hobbit did, around 11pm, and spent long hours sleeping restlessly and fighting for my side of the blankets. The hobbit is the biggest blanket thief. Anyway, thinking it was around dawn when I finally got up despite the lack of gray light coming in through the windows, I go into the living room and look at the clock in dismay. 3:17am. So much for sleeping through the night. I am just going to try and stay up and get a lot done. I'll be a zombie by this evening but no nappage will occur. At least, not before I get some work done. :) Since the hobbit won't be up for another hour and a half, I am going to update this neglected blog and write a letter to my friend, Melissa.
I've had a list of most of the book stores around the city for over a week now but I haven't called them yet. Trying to get the apartment done, desire for a better job, sheer laziness; any or all of the reasons have contributed. I want to apply for office jobs that would pay more but I have to update my resume first and all the information is stored God knows where. This has gone on long enough though. I have been going so stir-crazy in this apartment all day. It is especially bad during the week because I have all this pent-up energy that I unleash on the hobbit as soon as he walks in the door. He is understandably tired from working all day and I get upset that he doesn't want to go out or help me around the apartment. It's not good. However, I am also afraid that if I get a job at a book store, I will have a schedule similar to the one I had in southeast Texas: nights and weekends. This would add up to a whole lot of time not spent with the boy. This is so frustrating. I guess I will just have to take whatever job and hours I can get right now and keep looking for something better.
