Monday Vlogging

July 30, 2012

David went fishing this evening so Meredith and I were just hanging out together at home and for some reason I got it into my head to record a video with her. Unfortunately she decided to have one meltdown after another, but I managed to capture a couple (admittedly lame) minutes.

That was the name of the game this weekend. Last week was weird and hard. The first half was a blur because Meredith, the best nighttime sleeper ever, would NOT SLEEP. Kudos to anyone who has to deal with that on a regular basis, because I could barely function. On the fourth day, when I had to go to work after being awake since 1:30 a.m., I thought I was going to have to take a day off lest I kill a patient due to exhaustion.
