Sleep

*Feels music* Sleep! Glorious sleep! I'm eager to try some.

If anyone has seen the movie Oliver, the song is my own version of the Food! song. The song is straight from my heart right now, at 3:38 AM. Ben has been sick all weekend and would only sleep if I was holding him. Sleeping sitting up in a chair is not restful to me. I have taken a couple naps in the past few days, but I would really like to get more than one hour of sleep at a time. I don't remember the last time I had 8 hours of sleep in a row. At this point, I don't remember the last time I had a good 4 hours of sleep in a row. Tonight, Ben has not gone to bed yet. Maybe it has to do with the shot of antibiotic he took today and the other one he had yesterday. But honestly, with the thrush and then this, I'm really starting to get tired. For those people in internet land who didn't know me my senior year of high school and for much of college, I didn't sleep a whole lot then, but compared to now, it seems like the lap of luxiry. I really need my kids to start sleeping though. I'm getting truly tired. I think that if I don't get sleep by tomorrow night that my body will force me to sleep by getting so sick I won't be able to stand up straight. Ben still is not showing any signs of wanting sleep.

Hi Ellie,
I wish I could tell you something that would help, but I don't know the secret of making kids sleep. (If you find one other than drugs let me know:) All I can say is that I truly feel for you. Know that when you are awake at 3:36AM in Georgia, I too, am awake at 1:36AM in Utah, and I will pray for you. Good luck.

hugs! I don't know the secret either, but I completely understand. Remember to up the yogurt for ben while he is on antibiotics, don't want the thrush to get worse.
