Today's favorite moments included . . .
. . . getting a decent night's sleep, and being able to talk without coughing (much). Today actually felt kind of normal.
. . . going to dinner with some friends. It's lovely every now and then to set my cares aside and just have fun chatting (and eating).
And another thing . . .
. . . getting kids ready for bed feels like driving with one foot flooring the gas pedal, and the other foot pressed hard on the brakes. I'm desperate to move the process along so I can take a deep breath and recharge my batteries. Meanwhile, the kids are stalling like crazy because they think anything is more fun than going to bed.
