Some days, I’m fortunate to have a babysitter come and watch the kids for a couple of hours, keep them distracted, amused and on nice days, out of the house while I get a little dev work done. I plan out my agenda, get my assets in order so I can be efficient and get as much work done in my little allotted time.
This was not one of those days.
I woke up shortly after 5 AM, sounds of my youngest fussing and my wife tending to him. We have a deal, she gets the kids in the middle of the night, and I let her sleep in on the weekends. After 15 minutes or so of non-stop meltdown, I got up to see if I could help. The missus informs me that our lil’ guy stripped off his diaper, peed all over his crib, blankets and stuffed animals – and is now throwing a fit because he can’t go back to sleep with his soiled bedstuff.
Since she leaves early for work, I had to take junior and calm him and coax him back to sleep, which sorta worked, until his big brother decides to wake up at 6:30. Oh well – at least the babysitter will be here today.
Except, when she gets here, I can’t focus. I’m dragging. Creative impulses are as useless as logical focused thinking when I’m tired. The best I can do is play around with a bunch of mocap files I got off the asset store, to see if I can incorporate them onto MakeHuman .fbx files and if they’ll play nicely with Mechanim & PlayMaker. Sadly, I just can’t get it in gear and instead fiddle around in Photoshop, putting together a graphic design idea I’ve had kicking around in my head for a while:
Oh well, there is always next week…
