Energy

I don't usually complain (Me complain, Never), but the people in this house seem very tired at the moment. As we all know, blackwifeo hasn't slept a full night in the last 17 years. Lately she has been having more than the usual trouble getting to sleep and then staying asleep. Surprisingly, it seems I'm most of the problem. The "loud and annoying" zipping of my bag in the morning is waking her up and messing with her peace of mind. Why can't I just pack my bag the night before, why indeed! Blackdaughtero is now living fully on the reverse cycle. She comes in when it's light and then sleeps till the late afternoon. Then she awakes in a dark and foul mood. It seems now to add insult, she's PMSing. So we should grin and bare her tantrums because there is no food in the house (even though today the fridge is completely full with excellent Azziza salad) and anyway why does she always have to do everything. Today is Thursday and blacksono is "exhausted" (said with a drop of the head on the last syllable, because even saying exhausted is tiring). He's worked the whole week and he had to wait an hour for the bus home today (in the sun). He is so tired that he hasn't even got enough energy to hookup Rockband (we brought the one from work home). He must be very tired indeed. The cats seem to sleep all day and then growl and spit at each other all night, when they are not knocking over glasses. Only Adina and Jordy (our Canadian visitors) seem to take it all in their stride and have actually walked downtown.

I haven't walked or biked once this week, on "the advice of my doctor". I'm not to place any strain on my stitches on my chest. So I, have tonnes of energy.

P-
It's not just the loud and annoying zipping up of the bag, it's the fact that for some reason, closing and opening the bathroom door QUIETLY is a problem. I understand that at 5:30am this kind of small detail is not in your consciousness, but believe me, It IS on mine.
Then there is the shaving etc with items being plonked down and constantly running water, that is definitely not doing good for the Kinneret.

See, I am trying to be environmental over here.

Naughty blackpetero. Naughty boy. So inconsiderate. Bad Bad Bad. I will pack my bag the night before. I will pack my bag the night before. I will pack my bag the night before. I will pack my bag the night before. I will pack my bag the night before. I will pack my bag the night before. I will pack my bag the night before. I will pack my bag the night before. I will pack my bag the night before. I will pack my bag the night before. I will pack my bag the night before. I will pack my bag the night before. I will pack my bag the night before. I will pack my bag the night before. I will pack my bag the night before. I will pack my bag the night before. I will pack my bag the night before. I will pack my bag the night before. I will pack my bag the night before. I will pack my bag the night before. I will pack my bag the night before.

look, lets face it. It would be far less stressful for you to get up in the morning with everything ready to start your day. Right?
How nice it would be for you not to have to search for things in the dark (actually dark would be nice at that time of the morning, instead of you opening the trisim, making sure I wake up, just in case I sleep thru the rest of the buzzing activity.)
Oh, and shouting about missing socks can be totally eliminated if you set your clothes out the night before too.
Wait a minute, now that I think about it, maybe you should consider actually sleeping in your clothes- then all you would have to do is find your shoes.
