I don't know what is going on, but R is wide awake. We've been trying to get him to fall asleep since 9:00! And here I had been hoping that this would be my one night where I could sleep in my own bed for the entire night. (The last two nights with the new big boy bed have been pretty rough. Last night, I spent hours in R's room either serving as a human bed rail so that he wouldn't fall out or trying to calm him down from night terrors. When I finally crawled into my own bed at 4:30 a.m., A started snoring. I wanted to cry.)
I need a break!
Normally, work is the last place that would help me relax. Today was busy, but productive. I'm so thankful to work with such a great group of people. I really love the department that we've built up during the last few years. So, I decided to buy a slew of gooey, warm cookies at the bakery downstairs from our office to share with our team. And, that was the best thing I could have done. Not only did I get to make people happy, which made me happy, but everyone came by to chat - or I swung by their office to say hi. And that hardly ever happens because we're just so busy all the time. It was the recharge in my spirit that I needed!
Now, we'll see what recharging I need tomorrow...
