Back to work

Filed under: joey,workin for the man — lexifab @ 7:14 am

It’s 7:15 am on Monday the 20th. I’m due back at work any time now. The boy has spent a difficult, disruptive night keeping us awake. Now instead of having a shave and getting dressed, I’m listening to iTunes and trying to cajole him back to sleep.

It’s a rewarding life, this…


  1. Ah, but think of all those snoozes you’ll be able to have during seminars and stuff.

  2. You really are sleep deprived. By the Gregorian calendar, I’ve got it as Monday January the 21st 2008 :-). Do you think your boss will have any sympathy? Nope. Anytime I ever mentioned hardship to anyone to do with first-time fatherhood, all I ever got was “You chose to have children…” . Hope you have a better run of it than I did. Oh.. did’nt anyone tell you, the rewards start coming a bit later…. gradually…

  3. Mum – at this point I’m only coming to work to catch up on sleep. They don’t seem to have anything useful for me to do.

    Marco – Shows how long it’s been since I was operating on Calendar Time instead of Feeding Time. The only real hardship, I think, is going to be that between work and the baby, I’m not going to have a hell of a lot of spare time for fun…and if work continues to be as wholly unstimulating as it was last year, that’s going to end up being a problem for my “I need new and interesting things to think about now now now” short attention span brain.
