Daylight savings time begins here in the U.S. and it’s messing with me already. I know most people hate it but I kind of like it. As someone who works long hours I like that there will be some daylight left when I get home. It’s just the adjustment period that is hard. I know tonight will be a late night and tomorrow morning will be a rough one and my circadian rhythm

My wife is still very sick, so it’s up to me to get us both ready for the week ahead. I’m cleaning the house and taking care of the laundry and meal prep all on my own and though I’m happy to do it all and take care of her too, I am running low on energy. I don’t want to push myself too far. I’m trying not to get sick myself and the stress and exhaustion (I haven’t been sleeping well since she’s been sick either) isn’t good for my already crappy immune system.

Very little writing will get done and there is no time at all for reading. My books and ideas will have to wait. At least the weather is nice. I might not be able to spend the day in leisure and I may not be able to get out into the sun today but I can open up the house and enjoy some fresh air and sunshine. I can smile knowing I’m doing what needs to be done and taking care of the one I love the most.
