It's 12:45am on Halloween morning

And hubby and I are still up. Watching Starship Troopers on VOD. Ronnie and Emma are spending the night with friends and Ethan and Harley have been asleep for a few hours. We should really go to bed because I can guarantee they will be up begging for breakfast in just a few hours. And then they will want to carve the pumpkins that we picked last Sunday and have just neglected/procrastinated on carving until now. And make the Halloween cookies and cake I promised. I'm not a bad mom, I promise, just Queen Procrastinator!
Between work, homework for the kids, worrying about Scott and his lack of work and his diabetic problems that just seem to have compounded 100x since he lost his job back in April, I just don't have the energy sometimes to do all the fun stuff the kids want to do.
The doc ended up getting Scott into seeing an Endicrinologist, who put him on the insulin named U-500, which is on the governments dangerous drug list because of how potent it is. Even one unit miscalculation in drawing the insulin and it could send him into a diabetic coma. He was managing his diabetes so well until he was laid off. He actually did just fine managing it up until 3 months ago. I truly believe that lack of work has sent him into depression and that is screwing with his body. He eats right and we work out 5-6 days a week. Ok, so the gym we put on the back burner for a couple of weeks but we are slowly getting back into the groove. His sugars will crash around 3am every morning no matter what we do the night before. I sleep maybe 3 hours a night anymore because I know it's coming and if I'm not awake to help him it takes him so much longer to recover. The lack of sleep is taking a toll on my body and I'm afraid I might get sick soon.
Scott has applied at probably every company in our area now, whether he is qualified or not. Just in the hopes that someone will see he's willing to learn and hire him.

So I should go to bed before 3am comes and sleep for a couple of hours and maybe, just maybe the boys will let me sleep in in the morning. Maybe I can bribe them with a pancake lunch? We shall see.

Happy Halloween Everyone
