Sleep, or lack there of.

I need to write. I want to write... but I'm SO tired that I'm having trouble thinking straight. I didn't fall asleep until after 1:30 this morning and Gregory woke up at 6 for a bottle (after sleeping from 7pm last night so no real complaints there), but then I stayed awake until he woke up again at 9:30. Why wasn't I sleeping? I have no idea.
We ate breakfast together and then I dropped him off at daycare. I stopped by the store and here I am. I have managed to somehow use up 2 hours of my time to get stuff done including but not limited to, unloading the dishwasher, unpacking from the weekend, laundry, putting Gregory's travel stuff away, answer emails that have gone WAY too long without response and WRITING. And now I have just 3 hours until I need to pick him up.
All I can thinking about is a nap. I think that my body is screaming for sleep. I think today will have to be a day of rest and tomorrow I'll work on tackling chores. These are the days I feel like a lazy person, but I have to try to remind myself that I did more this past weekend than I have in the past 8 months. I really need to work on giving myself a break. I guess off to nap I go. Hopefully I will be able to fall asleep. And tonight? Bed time is 8:30. I need a good solid sleep so I can participate in life instead of watching it tick by.


  1. It is ok to sleep. It is GOOD to take care of yourself. We are all better mommies when we take care of ourselves. Remember when you fly, your are supposed to put your mask on first and then your childs, because you won't be able to help your child if you become incapacitated.

    BTW - I am so proud of all you accomplished this last weekend! Good for you!

  2. I second that! In fact, you inspired me to try and nap this morning while my big girl was at day camp. Course, the little one didn't cooperate but at least I lay down for a while!
