Sleep is a great thing until it gets in the way of life

I'm always exhausted now.  It's like school let out and I just died.  I'm asleep by 8 on all of my nights off, even Tuesday nights when I had off the night before and slept nearly 12 hours.  Sometimes a phone call will wake me so I am up for a bit in the middle of that but if no one is talking to me I pass right out.  I think my body is recovering from the school year.  I mean it hasn't been that long yet.  I also am quitting the excessive amount of energy drinks I was consuming while classes were in session.  It was disgusting how many I was drinking to get through life.  I had one yesterday, which probably just reset everything my body has been fighting.  Hopefully within the next week or two I'll return to normal again.  

On to the potty training front lines...

GeekDad had a post up today with a toilet seat that Mini-Geek saw.  It was a Marvel seat and he became very excited over the idea of sitting on Spiderman and The Hulk.  I don't call him Mini-Geek for nothing.  He just one day developed a love of Spiderman out of nowhere and this has extended into other Marvel characters and lately he has been branching into DC as well.  He told me that he'd use the potty if he I bought that seat and I'm always looking for new encouragement.  The last day or two telling him that when he doesn't pee in his diaper or pull-up and instead pees on the potty I am very happy has worked somewhat.  Evil Mart carries just Spiderman seats apparently so we purchased one and he has been more than happy to use it the last couple of hours and wants to take it to my mom's tonight...I am hoping so incredibly much that this is putting the end to diapers.

We have also made our foray into the exciting world of Legos.  They are all that he plays with now.  A big set has been promised once we are an underwear-only household.  I don't mean one of the insane $100+ sets, the biggest one he has I think cost $20 or $30.  

I've been on the Wii Fit every day for the past five days!  So has Mini-Geek actually, he enjoys pointing out his Mii whenever he shows up when I am doing something.
I have not played any other games yet, although I've been itching to get back onto Mushroom Men.  I have a ton of movies I need to watch.  I don't want a TV in my room but I am thinking of lugging one in mine to at least start movies when I go to bed so I can get some of these watched.


  1. Lego's are the coolest toy EVER.

  2. Most definitely! No one would buy me "boy toys" so I played with my brother's stuff a decent amount (especially his Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) and I spent hours playing with his.
    I keep buying my son more so that there's a decent amount to chose from because I want more!
