where is it hiding?

my little man has refused to let himself sleep these past few days;
he fights really hard to stay awake and says he's not sleepy though his eyes tell me he is ~
by the time he's finally asleep, i'm so exhausted i can bear no sound at all - i asked my dad tonight to watch something with subtitles; i couldn't listen to the tv for a second - i thought i would scream!
i felt like there was no air in the room; i needed space but the only vacant room was the bathroom ~
~ yes, tonight i've missed my spacious home ~
last night i spent a few minutes looking at my journal before i finally had gratitude thoughts come in; it felt good in the end.
tonight i won't even bother opening it; typing does not require a firm grasp of a pen like writing does, so i'll just say it here: i'm grateful for a healthy meal of fresh fish and salad and i'm grateful (oh, so grateful) that tomorrow is friday!

Been there - got the tee shirt as they say. You will survive and he will settle into a routine which is easier for you both I am sure. Meanwhile take care of yourself and don't get too tired. Weekend will soon be here!

As I write this, I hope you are soundly and happily sleeping :) Pleasant dreams, and best wishes for this to get better.

I completely sympathize with you both. My littlest one never sleeps all night in her bed & she's 5 ;) luckily, for me, my oldest 2 sleep deeply ;)

Wishing that you both get some rest. Have a loverly weekend. We're almost there. Yay!

P.S. Thanks for the well wishes for my little. She's feeling much better today ;)

Hi Yiota! Sometimes I get up extra early in the morning to sit and complete silence and darkness, which is my light! So, I understand! May Friday welcome you with peace, tranquility, love, joy and happiness because you sooo deserve it!

P.S. By the way, did you ever receive your package?

I hope tonight is easier!

Hope your little one is more settled over the weekend and next week so that you can recuperate and gather your thoughts.

Sending you happy Friday wishes and hoping you have a great weekend.

Yes, it sounds like he got the gist of it right! I should have watched my handwriting more closely :)

And tell him BRAVO!!!! I'm amazed he was able to decipher ANY of it! The front of the card just made me think of you :)
