I Never Knew Tired Till Now...


Brooks asleep in the back room at work in his Shark outfit

Last night was a doozy. For some reason Brooks tossed and turned in the bassy all night long all the while snorting on the mucus monster and trying to catch his breath every several minutes. I couldn't fall asleep until about 12:30, and I think LB was up every hour choking on snot (yummy, huh?). This is the first bought of exhaustion I have had to bring to work with me. I am working on about 2 hours of broken up sleep, and that might be pushing it. The good news is, I was on time to work this morning, and my boss was here to witness it, and me with no make up and lack of sleep written all over my face and attitude.

I am really trying to put on a happy face, but I think the shadows are consuming the sunshine right now...So, in an effort to make myself see the brighter side of my situation, here is a list of the things I am thankful for today:

My handsome, supportive husband
My healthy, happy, wonderful son
The rest of my wonderful supportive family members
The fact that I have a job to go to every morning
The fact that they let me bring my baby to the office every day
A house over our head with an incredible view, and great neighbors
My health and ability to be physically active and healed from pregnancy and delivery
The 2 pair of jeans I fit in to so far
The freedom to love and worship the Lord Jesus Christ freely and openly

There are so many more, but I am too tired to type them out. :)

Praying for more sleep, continued health, and quick recovery.
