I’m sitting on my bed drinking coffee doing my ankle exercises.
Last night my entire house slept. I know that seems like a “duh” statement but sleep has been missing from our nights. Clara may be teething? Eli has been sick. Clara may dislike her crib. There are a lot of mysteries surrounding our sleeplessness. I wish I could figure it out, fix it and sleep peacefully for the rest of my life.
But last night, well, last night we all hit our walls, it was like every single one of us just could not stay awake one second longer, so we just slept. Peacefully. For hours and hours.
It was heaven.
I woke up this morning and everything felt clear to me.
So now, I’m working on catching up, Brian’s been out of town and I haven’t been able to work, I have a newborn session in a few hours (with crutches and a boot) and I’m finally, finally able to see the light at the end of this very, dark tunnel.
For the first time in a long time I feel like everything is going to be okay. I just have to be strong. Be positive.
And keep doing these ankle exercises.
