I have slept all week. I've not slept great but I have slept and I am so thankful for it. Of course, I did not write but you can't have it all!
I especially thankful for the sleep because my work has been increasingly demanding since I'm leaving the department for another. Add to that my child's recent expectant behavior (it is her birthday - that's her reasoning) and a test on Thursday and I had to give in to sleep.
So by 10 or 11 I've been the good girl and gone to bed.
I felt better this week, not just because of sleep but because I was able to tell a number of people what it was I really wanted in my life, what kind of people and how I couldn't feel less than totally free and so I couldn't conform to others ideas or expectations.
