After seven years of NOT sleeping through the night (legit) this mama has slept three full nights in a row and now I think I can change the world. Well, maybe when spring arrives! ;)
On my vacation I was pretty sure I'd sleep well, wake up well rested and return home fresh and under-eye dark-circle free. Well, I was wrong. And I'm not unhappy about it in the least! I mean, fun was had, drinks were shared, cake was passed and sleep was sought ... just not the way I had envisioned.
Upon returning, and Luke starting some new sleeping meds which I can touch on later, I have had GLORIOUS WONDERFUL FULL nights of rest. And that is just something that hasn't happened in, oh, ... SEVEN years. This week I've slept 3 nights in a row not waking up once. GASP!?!?! I almost, ALMOST don't know what to do with myself.
Except, the thing is, I still feel tired! How is that? Is it that I've slept so little in the last seven years that my body doesn't know how to act? Is it that "sleep begets sleep" business that we all read about when going through babyhood (think Baby Wise and other sleep training books!). Or is it simply that I AM JUST THAT FREAKING TIRED?
Whatever it is...it is a welcome relief and has been a long time coming. I don't want to get too comfortable with this whole sleep business because I know that 3 little kids have a myriad of issues that occur in the night (barf and bad dreams to name a couple!) but for now #tired is GETTING HER SLEEP ON and enjoying it.
Do NOT wake the bear until Spring. #pleaseandthankyou
