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.
