It has been a rough week with regard to getting enough sleep, in part because my 1yo has decided to start getting up at 5 a.m. again, and also because I am taking part in a clinical study that requires me to drink 16 oz of liquid twice per day. The first bottle of the day isn’t too bad, but the evening bottle is really throwing a wrench into my get-to-bed plans. For that reason, I may decide to drop out of the study. It’s only been 3 days, so I’d like to give it a few more days.

Praise God, I was able to sleep for about an hour around lunchtime today. My 1yo was napping, and my 4yo was eating lunch and hanging out on his own. I lay down and my body felt like a bag of sand; I had no desire to fidget around or toss and turn. After 40 minutes I woke up and thought about getting up, but then I closed my eyes and next thing I knew it was 10 minutes later. This happened a few times.

I feel so very much better now. I have a chiropractor appointment later today, and I’m expecting to feel even better after that. I have been dragging so much lately due to lack of sleep and due to my back being out of whack. I want and need to feel better. My kids need me to be at my best, and so does my husband.
