Today I am grateful for a little wake-up call. I fell asleep while snuggling with the kids and watching Mickey's Clubhouse, then when Mollie wanted me to read to her I had to say, "Honey, I won't be able to stay awake. I'm so sorry." Even as the words left my mouth I felt sheepish and angry with myself. That's not the kind of mom I want to be.
So, it's time to try harder at getting more sleep. My body and mind need it so badly and I have been depriving myself too long. It's not going to be easy; heaven knows I love staying up late. But I've also grown to love getting up early and doing my own thing for a while before the house wakes up. Doing both isn't an option, so I'm cutting back on the up-lates to see if I can make a change in my energy levels.
And now, off to bed! Good night and sweet dreams to you all!
Have a wonderful night!
