Catching Up

My lack of sleep for several days is catching up with me. I didn't sleep again last night, but forced myself to stay in bed for  8 hours awake or not. My anxiety is really building up and I am missing Chris so much it actually hurts!  Just 3 days away form Thanksgiving which was always a fun time with my kids. We would have the traditional turkey dinner, watch some video together, and put up the Christmas tree while we laughed and played together as a family. It was family time. Me, Chris and Alice. We would also try to go see the Christmas light at Rhema Bible School. The decorations are out of this world! It doesn't look like Alice is going to get to come down for Christmas. UGH!!!  I'm trying to pull myself together, because I have an appointment with my therapist, my pre-op appointment, and have to give another unit of blood for my surgery. I determined to make this the best day I can with all things considered. These mood swings are the pits.  I'll just try to put on a "happy face" and make it one day at a time. See my happy face?

Wanda, that pig is too much. LOL I love it!! Just look at it when you're down. Too funny.

Stopped by to remind you that today I pray for our children and us weary mommas throughout the day. I have an encouraging verse on my sidebar this week for Heart of a Mother. I usually send out a bulk email to all the moms I pray for each Monday but you don't list an email. If you'd like to be added to that list, just forward me your email. I still pray for you regardlessly.

Haha! Excellent gif.

On a more serious note, I'm sorry you're feeling so down. I know sleep deprivation is NO FUN and definitely doesn't help your mood. Staying awake all night gives us time to ruminate over things that can sometimes make us upset. Have you spoken to anyone about potentially going on a sleep med or other sedative? I know without mine I would be a complete insomniac.

Wishing you well,

Yes. Happy face and all. Courage and strength to you.

My sleep patterns have always been an issue. I work nights and lately have been soooo exhausted at night! Yet tonight I'm off work, am wide awake, and have to take my son to an early occupational therapy appointment. Go figure!
I hope that you are able to get some rest. Much love.

I think I can guess your mood by the pigs face. Funniest thing I seen for a while. If it doesn't cheer you up, it made me smile anyway :-)
