Sleepless nights, snot, and refusal to take medicine (yes I've tried every trick) has been the norm this week and I was shattered by last night. Falling asleep on the couch at 8pm, I finally gave in and called it a night. I felt so guilty leaving Morgan this morning with the nanny but it was time. And you know what? We both needed a break from each other. (First time in a while that she waved goodbye and kissed me and giggled as I left...she needed someone else's love for a day and I was happy to pass the reigns). So today for the ridiculous rate of $16/hr, I am paying for peace. I paying for a glorious catnap outside on Sheep Meadow. Leftover banana pudding and a green juice for lunch. Finishing (sadly!) my new bible, Carry On Warrior. And maybe that's why these Thursdays of mine are so necessary...I come home so completely recharged. (Seriously what did we do before when our whole lives were about ourselves and recharging was just our LIFE outside of work??? Please fill me in former self, I don't remember enjoying and being so full of gratitude for peace this much!)
In a few hours I'll be ready for bubbles and doc mcstuffins and sandbox play on 68th & CPW…but now, right now...excuse me while I get back to this.
