I haven't needed an alarm in weeks and weeks because I find myself tossing and turning somewhere between 4 and 6 a.m. on a regular basis, no matter what time I go to bed. I am starting to get a little ticked off about it. Wait, that might cause more problems. grrrrrrr
I am pretty sure it is typical of people my age to have these same issues they are worried about. Our kids are becoming adults and starting to get independent, which means we hope and pray they have remembered things we taught them. Financially the needs of everyone are bigger. A trip to the dollar store, which used to work like magic for my ninos, doesn't cut it anymore. And now I am working and going to school, which has been a blessing really, but has added stress to the family. The other day my husband said he missed me sometimes. "We get home at the same time most nights," I reminded him. "But", he said, "your thoughts are split across more things now." True.
I need to ride things out. Read my scriptures more. Count my blessings more. Sleep more.
I am happy, just s t r e t c h e d.
