To illustrate: Saturday. I woke up at 4:00 am to my pager going off. I solved the problem, but my one year old daughter woke up, so I had to try to get her back to sleep. As I was putting her to bed at 6:15, my three year old son started crying because he was having a bad dream. At 8:00 am, my wife went to the gym; I sat the kids in front of the TV so I could grab a quick shower, got them breakfast, and dressed them for our busy day.
I cleaned out the gutters on the house and answered another page by 11:00, at which time we put the kids down for an early nap. We cleaned house and I took the van in to get the winter tires put on while the kids slept. Beginning at 2:00 pm, we went to a succession of three children's birthday parties, finally finishing at 9:30 pm. We got home at 10:00, bathed the kids and got them to sleep by 11:00, then collapsed.
It wouldn't bother me, but this is nearly every day. I kind of miss cigarettes... then, at least I had an excuse to give myself a break once in a while.
