It's the middle of the dang night. Mike's laptop needs to be banished from my room. It isn't easy to sit in our library in front of the five-foot wide window letting the cold cold wind blow in and type on the computer late into the night. It's easy in the summertime, maybe, but I'm getting so bed sounds like a good idea after I get Leo to sleep. Last fall, I would read to Maeve, and then nurse Leo down, and then read to Sophia. By the time I was done, I'd go to sleep 9 nights out of 10.
Christmas break, of course, ruined me. I got to sleep in and Mike held Leo a lot and life was easy. This week, too, has been easy with only the three school days. More snoozing and then staying up late. I started to worry that the thyroid medication was losing its edge, but I realized I wasn't sleepy and zoned sitting up late at night. I was unable to close my eyes. Insomnia. Never had it before. Not for real. So I eliminated the cozy nap with Leo in the late morning and cut the coffee off at noon. Sounded good, until Mike's laptop crept into bed with me last night. And of course I slept in today--a Saturday with no plans? No brainer there.
Tomorrow morning is early. Sophia goes to Atrium and I have to figure out what to do with children's liturgy. And tomorrow is long as well--we undecorate at church, at least a good start at it. Tomorrow could break the habit and get me back where I belong. But I have to say goodbye to the laptop.
