9.5 hours

July 14, 2021

= the amount I slept last night, and it was amazing.

I skipped my morning run today. I may try to do some (light, restorative) yoga tonight while the kids have their coveted show time.

This is a reminder to myself and anyone who needs it that pushing past fatigue on a regular basis is just not worth it. I feel so much better today!

(Also, I have noted that one of the first thing to go when I am tired is the ability to parent effectively. It takes a lot of mental and physical stamina apparently).

2 other notes:

1- I impulse bought these shoes this AM immediately after seeing them on this post.

Throwback to a pair of orange Sauconys I wore in college.
Further recreation of my circa 2000 shoe wardrobe and I’m pretty thrilled about it.

2- Annabel received this rainbow loom organizer and the level of joy was IMPRESSSIVE.

    Fun shoes! I bought a super cute pair of flower sneakers a couple of year (yikes!) ago for something fun and easy to wear especially while subway commuting. Though i realized that the laces which objectively seem like a small thing were annoying so i bought elastic laces to make them easier to slip on and I love them so much more. Think joy on the Annabel and rainbow loom organizer joy!

    Aww! A full night of sleep! That feels so amazing! The baby STTN twice this week so that felt so good. He was up once last night around 4 which isn’t bad. He had been getting up around twice a night for awhile so I am glad things are moving back in the right direction. Uninterrupted sleep is a glorious thing!

    Also, thanks for the Greenwood book rec. I had not heard about it until you mentioned it. I am loving it!! I should finish it today.

    I finally got a full night’s sleep too and it feels life alteringly amazing!!!!!

    Is your bedtime going any better? Have you tried going directly from dinner to bed? I’ve been thinking of you!

    Also I am now obsessed with those sneakers! My size is out of stock but I’m going to stalk the website hoping to catch a returned pair! Just love the color. It’s perfect for fall.

    THOSE SHOES! I seriously love them. I may not want to wear the ’90s styles on the top half, but I am here for the throwback shoes.
