Having been with my husband for ten plus years, it's a given for me that he is literally a part of me,! I have a hard time falling asleep and STAYING asleep when he works graveyard. I would be so exhausted the next day because I wouldn't get a good night's rest. It's extremely funny if I really think about it, like why? Hehe. I love sleep, no shame and no doubt about it. Sleep makes you sane and recharges for the next day, without it, you're a grumpy old fart zombie, get real!
At times I would arrange a whole bunch of pillows on his side of the bed to make it a little better. Sometimes that doesn't work so I eventually stopped doing that to feel a little less silly. Finally, at last though, I think I found a solution to that, by mistake, at least. I wasn't even looking for anything to help me sleep but some discovery is a great discovery!
My neighbor, Patti, is a homeopathic lover like me. I prefer things that are less processed or containing too much chemicals. One day I asked her about what she takes for anxiety because when it's MY time of the month with crazy women period and what not.. my anxiety goes off the roof. I don't let it really show, but containing it IS hard and it's not fun. She suggested I try St. John's wart during the day and Valerian root at night because her husband has anxiety problems as well.
I look forward to Mother's Day every year because I just love how fun that day ends up being every year! My husband usually works but he always takes the day off and I think it's SO sweet of him. He told me I could get my nails done or whatever, but I really just wanted to go out as a family.
We started off having such a nice service at Glennwood Community Church. I just have to say that I love smaller churches. The ones without a stage and funky lights like we're watching a concert, that is! Our pastor is so amazing, he's so real and will tell the whole truth no matter if we get offended or not. The bible is the bible, and truth is truth!
Afterwards, we had brunch at IHOP! I didn't really eat that big of a breakfast so I had to eat big during this time lol! Country steak and gravy, thanks very much. The kids has their silver pancakes with eggs and little Mimi had chicken tenders with tons of hash browns!
LET'S BE FRIENDS!
