NaBloPoMo Day 27: Fail/Not Fail
Well, you may have noticed there is no post for Day 26. That is because, once again, I have failed at NaBloPoMo. Sigh... BUT, I don't feel that disappointed about it. It would be cool to say I made it and that I had done it. But I've made it so far, and I feel like it has done a lot for me already (post on that is forthcoming, for sure!) We've been at the farm with all my family the last 2 days and today and yesterday I have been extremely tired and exhausted. I don't know if it's because the kids are being a bit gripey, or because Danny's been extra whiny (growth spurt? He ate an awful lot today!), or because I'm away from my normal responsibilities so my body's relaxing. I've had a cold for about a week that I can't seem to kick and I just feel really tired, and haven't slept really great the last two nights. I was in the bed with both kids, which was kind of nice, but also way too restrictive to my movements and left me sleeping poorly and waking up with my back hurting. It's not quite the same sharing a double bed with two kiddos as a King like at home! Anyhow, last night I went up to put Sam to bed before writing my blog, and I snuggled in under the warm blanket in between my two little boys. And when Justin came up to check on me a while later and I was still awake, but cozy and sleepy, I decided to stay in bed with them and rest instead of getting up and forcing out some words onto the screen. I don't regret it. I was tired, and I was in a wonderful place at that moment, and you just never know how many moments like that are left! So, I "failed," but I also didn't, because my heart was in the right place. I'm still going to try to post every day until the end of November if I can, we'll see!
