Hi.

Welcome to my place.

I write about about being a 40-something mum of five wonderfully exasperating children, attachment parenting, my adventures in the kitchen, and whatever else comes to mind.

Wide Awake

It's 1:52am on Sunday morning. I'm wide awake -- for some unknown reason my brain just doesn't want to shut down yet. I'm not even tired enough to read myself to sleep. The way I feel right now, I'd end up finishing the book and then it would be 4am and I'd still be wide awake. Some nights I don't mind being wide awake -- with my depression under control, my insomnia is generally a result of my brain thinking big creative thoughts and I'm happy to be awake with a reason. I'm a "middle of the night" person for that sort of stuff -- always have been -- and it's great to feel like I'm getting back to normal.

I focused my energies tonight into a gift I'm working on for a friend. I'm pretty happy with how it's going so far, and it's nice to have my pens out being used again. I haven't been drawing for quite awhile. I may scan it when I'm done and share it here after it has been gifted.

Wouldn't do to ruin the surprise! ;)
