Today I woke up feeling really weird...


Today I woke up feeling really weird. I couldn't put my finger on it but something about me just felt different.

As the day progressed I realized it wasn't a wholly unpleasant feeling. Just odd. In fact, the more I ruminated, I realized it was actually a really pleasant feeling.

Then I got to thinking, what could this unnameable sense of calm, that all is right with the world, be called?

And then it hit me... I had Ny-Quil drugged myself last night & went to bed really, ridiculously early & this morning everyone slept in. I had gotten like 10 1/2 hours of sleep.

That blissful, utterly content feeling I couldn't put my finger on?
Non-exhaustion.
Satiated sleep.

10 1/2 lovely, long freaking hours of sleep.


I think 10 1/2 hours of sleep might just be my new bestfriend. Or should I say new-old bestfriend. Here was our conversation:

ME:
"Why hello 10 1/2 hours of sleep? Where have you been all my life?"
SLEEP: "Oh, you used to know me. Back on Saturdays. Before you had kids. Oh, and those rare years you didn't have church before 9 am."
ME: "Well, I've missed you."
SLEEP: "Yeah, I missed you too."

All I have to say is, "Let's not let it be another 4 years before we meet again."

Seriously. UGH why is it is hard to get a full night's rest! Impossible basically. I took 2 simply sleeps at 11 and am hoping to go to sleep soon...

The other night I was asleep by 7:30 and didn't get out of bed till 7 the next morning - lovely! And last night I was asleep by 9 and didn't get up till 7 this morning - but Isaac was up a few times last night. But still, this pregnancy is sucking the life out of me, so I need try to go to bed by 8 at least once a week. It's a good feeling!
