~*the Funk*~

the week is starting to wind down a bit and though i'm guilty of playing hooky from task well deserving to have been done, i needed the break...in fact, i think we allll did...

last night had been the clencher... the lilones had taken off for awanas, only smudge had to come home earlier than expected as she had injured her wrist and the youth organizer was just surrrre it was broken...

i took a look, no swelling, no bruising...so guess who played off lazy and curled back under the covers trying to capture a few hours of rest before work???

i know...guillllllty...

but the fact was that i was literally surviving on about 2-3 hours of sleep every day this week and i couldn't go it any longer...selfish??? yessss...but it was needed...

unfortunately i only managed three hours of sleep anyhow...scooby came home from awanas to find her hamster had passed on and so it was time for comforts and consoling for about an hour as i tried to ready for work, find a proper place in the rain for a burial, and deal with the final impact (less than 10 minutes before i was to leave for work) when scooby realized her hamster had no water and (as she put it) his death was "alllllll my fault"

*sighsssss*

this was sooo not good...especially considering her goal is one day to become a veterinarian... it realllly hit home and it had hit pretty hard.

needless to say, it's been one of the toughest weeks we've had in a long time... so we took some time off today... i skipped the hospital, we all got a bit of extra sleep in, smudge will have to manage on a "half-dose" until morning, but i think the benefit may very well outweigh any reprocussions of a missed half dose...

or so i'm hoping!!!
