Last night, while all the world was asleep - and my body was apparently on speed - I wondered what a normal night was like for most people. I'd ask my husband, but I've seen how he sleeps...and there doesn't seem to be ANYTHING peaceful about that. He dreams about large insects, dinosaurs, and being chased my people that cast spells on him. He talks, swats, and does the just-dozed-off jump/startle almost every single night. Needless to say, I don't consider him to be an ideal candidate to answer my question.
Where was I? Not sleeping....Rob's a psycho sleeper....OH! Yes. So, last night while you were all in dreamland - I was wondering what it's like to sleep the entire night through. Is that the norm? I realize I am probably more on the extreme end of sleepless nights (not quite insomniac - but definitely on the border somewhere) but do most of you go to sleep, fall asleep quickly, and then wake up in the morning feeling bright eyed and bushy tailed? OR - as I like to believe, do you all wake up at least two to three times - check the clock, hit the potty, roll around for a few and then go back to bed?
Are any of you out there making the list? Panicking over the ridiculous things that somehow - in the daytime - aren't anywhere near as important? I am so curious as to what a typical night holds for all of my friends. Do you have lots of dreams? Do you remember them?
BDEM: Today my friend, Maria, and I weeded the yard of a lady from our church who is about to have a baby. It was so wonderful to sit and chat with her about all of the different trials that mothers face. It always seems like everyone else has it all together, when truth be told - our problems - no matter what they are - are just as burdensome as everyone else's. We are all going through similar experiences: the joys, the heartaches, the exciting days, the days that never end - and when it's all said and done, the only thing that matters is that we did OUR best. Not the best according to other peoples' standards - but the best for our individual families. It was one of those chats that you walk away from thinking, "Wow - the grass really does always seem greener.." Good reminder. Good BDEM.
