Insomnia!

This week is starting in a state of exhaustion. I don't know what happened last night, but I just could not sleep. I had the shakes after laying there for hours on the brink of sleep but never quite getting there. Then I had to get up with Micah at one point, which is becoming something of a ritual these days. He did not settle as easily as he normally does. I don't remember what happened after that. All I know is that most of the night I was aware, so if I was sleeping, I was barely out of my conscious state and I was nowhere near ready to get up when Mike woke me a few minutes before 7 a.m.

But I got up and got Cody ready for school. It's a gorgeous fall day today and I enjoyed our walk to the road. Jamie came along, as he got up when Cody did. Micah woke up as soon as we got back, which was slightly disappointing, but oh well. I did a workout anyway. Just a 20 minute ab routine, but at least it was something. I am going riding tonight, so I will count that as my cardio for today. It will be a perfect day for it. Hopefully it won't get too windy or the horses might be a little silly, and I don't want any silliness if I can avoid it.

Micah will be going down for his "nap" soon. He has not fallen asleep in his "nap" in several weeks other than maybe once or twice. I still put him down because it's good for him to have the quiet time, and yes, it is even better for me. So it will just be me and Jamie this afternoon. I would love to have a nap, but I don't dare, in case I sleep too long and miss picking Cody up from the bus at 3:10 p.m. So, I will either read or write, or maybe even both. My room is bright and there is a fresh wind blowing in the windows. I love it. I hope this weather lasts a long time. Fall is my favourite time of year, but I usually find it flies by way too quickly. I'm hoping it is more drawn out this year.

Anyway, not much else to say at this point. I'm barely even awake, so I better snap out of it at least for another 20 minutes until Micah goes to bed. After that, maybe I'll take it easy for a while. Bye for now.
