(My little man fell asleep like this one evening after dinner, guess he was completely pooped!)
I have good and bad days. Yesterday I woke up feeling like a new woman. I cleaned my house, went grocery shopping, read a good book and took a 2 hour nap.
Then last night was hard to fall asleep. It was one of those nights when I couldn't get things out of my head. I just kept re-playing all of my worries over and over in my head.
Stupid worries, really. But still worries that kept me up way past my bedtime.
Then today was a rough morning. I pushed snooze on the alarm. I pulled myself out of bed. Once I ate some food, I felt a little better, but let's be honest, I would have much rather climbed back into bed and slept the morning away.
On days like this, a nap is a requirement. But lunch was late being fixed, then it was time to shower and get my buddy from the bus, and then we went to the dentist (yes, the dentist days before Halloween!) So there was no nap for me.
Now it's 5:30pm and we're cooking our chili for the Trunk or Treat at the church. I'm exhausted and who knows how I'll feel a hour from now when it's time for the party to start. I can hardly keep my eyes open and when I close them, they burn, that's how tired I am.
I still have the final touches on the kids costumes to figure out, procrastinate much, I think not!
This stupid thyroid of mine is kicking my trash and I can't wait for the medicine to help me feel better. I know it's a gradual thing, but I don't do gradual very well. I am more of an instant gratification person, that's why I worked in TV and also why I don't sew quilts! It's just to hard for me to wait for something to happen. So when I'm faced with a trial that might take a while to solve...it's really hard on me. But I digress.
It seems that the medicine is helping me out in the morning and maybe in the next week it will help me in the afternoon and the week after that help me in the evening? We can keep our fingers crossed, right?
I know life is rough on all of us and my worries are minuscule to the worries I could have...but I just had to get this off my chest. Venting is over. Now back to your regularly scheduled programming.
