last night i crawled into bed and within seconds i fell fast asleep. this is something that i have never been able to do no matter how hard i tried. i would silently curse my snoring husband from my side of the bed, as he slept peacefully within minutes of his head hitting the pillow. this of course, while i tossed and turned, struggling to fall asleep. my mind would wander and i would be full of anxiety about what tomorrow held and the many things that were either sitting unfinished or never started and needing to be done. lately i have been having no trouble falling asleep. in fact, it seems that i am in dreamland faster and faster as each day passes. while i am no sleep specialist, i do believe that i am just plain old exhausted. that and a lot less stressed than usual. i'll take it.
the ebb and flow of the past few weeks, my duties as a mother, a wife, a teacher, a friend, a blogger... they have left me tired. but i am sleeping. sleeping and waking up somewhat refreshed. i'm not feeling stressed about silly things and i am enjoying each productive day with a satisfied smile upon my face. i have so much to be thankful for.
have a great weekend!
some good things: my forever hiding toddler. i have been on a miso kick, making everything from soup to dressing. the most comfortable pair of shoes that i own. a handful of beautiful flowers picked for me by my oldest daughter.
