Feeling Kind of Fuzzy

Sorry I missed everybody yesterday. About a week ago, the babe started waking up between 3-4 in the morning and wasn’t able to go back to sleep right away. This left me up for an hour or so in the middle of the night, every night for a while. When she finally was able to sleep through again, I wasn’t. I would wake up on the dot at 3:00am and be wide awake for an hour. My senior year in college I came down with mono (and no, it wasn’t from kissing) and ever since then when I get really run down, my body has a hard time snapping out of it. A couple of days ago, I knew I was in trouble if I didn’t slow down. I couldn’t think straight, had a really hard time focusing and I couldn’t sleep even if I tried. Yesterday, Hubby got up with the kids, took care of them while I was finally able to get some extra sleep. Then when I was up, the babe fell asleep in my lap, which never happens any more, so I was able to sit in a chair for two hours and work on some crochet. Hubby made lunch so I could rest, and I even stayed in my pj’s all day. I drank copius amounts of tea and cocoa to keep myself fortified, and basically did nothing but rest, and it turns out it is just what I needed. I’m feeling better, still slightly tired, but ready to face the rest of the week.

    Mamas have to look after themselves too, but we are so bad at doing it!
    Sitting snuggling with a sleeping baby is as good as it gets, just perfect.

    Hope you feel better soon – with all those little people to look after it can’t be easy but you’re lucky you’ve got a husband helping you out! Make the most of it! x

    I’m glad you took the time to take care of yourself. I’ve had a sleepless babe myself lately, and you’re right – it’s amazing what a bit of sleep can do! šŸ™‚

    Sue, mononucleosis is also called glandular fever in other countries (it’s nick named the kissing disease, because it’s highly infectious). Somebody at the college had it and I was told that if she had coughed into her hand and touched a doorknob and then I touched it soon after that is how I could have contracted it. Anyway, it makes you extremely tired and that semester was really tough. Once you have it it stays mostly dormant, but it can cause some troubles later on.

    Hooray for a day in PJ’s just sitting and chilling. It’s a tough time of year and I’m glad you found the time to rest and relax and help your body to feel better!

    I’m glad that you area starting to feel a little bit better. I love spending time in my PJ’s if i’m feeling under the weather šŸ™‚

  12. Glad you are revived – my sleep went bonkers for 3 years – for two of those I woke up every 20 mins all night and was often awake for hours. Horrible, but what it has taught me is to monitor and guard my energy levels like jewels. Your husband sounds just the ticket! Take care x
