Today I am grateful for:
- The fact that after E2 had me up 3 times between when I fell asleep at 1am and when M got up at 5.30 and I was shattered beyond the ability to speak coherently, my mother came over and took care of the girls so I could catch up on my sleep.
- The fact that when we got the girls down for their naps this afternoon, I was able to lie down again and get another 90 minutes’ sleep and, when I woke up, I was finally able to shake that hang-over feeling that had been clinging to me all day long.
- The huge thunderstorm that rolled through after dinner — dark, windy, and with an angry rain that pelted everything in the garden into submission. It cooled everything down and lifted my mood no end. We’ve had thunderstorms nearly every day for weeks now — I love them, I love them, I love them!
