Well-deserved weekend

Today’s one of those days where it is past 11pm, and I really have to drag myself to my laptop, in order to write another post. I should’ve written one in the morning, so Friday evening truly would’ve felt like weekend.

It’s been a long, long first week back at work after my parental leave. It was a good week, don’t get me wrong. I got a lot of stuff done, and the first week of solo baby day care for my wife went smooth. Even though our toddler only went to kindergarten in the mornings (he struggled a bit with finding his place in the first three days), having him at home in the afternoons still combined surprisingly well with my work, and the care for the baby. Regardless of the smooth ride, I’m exhausted. Not sure if it’s the early alarms, or the upregulation of the brain machinery, but I’m dead. I need recovery. I’ll leave it at that for now. I wrote enough today – and this week – to justify a short post on here today. Let’s see if I can drag myself from my laptop and the couch to my bed, before I fall asleep here.
