I didn’t realize how tired I was, how stressed out, how on-edge. When I wasn’t listening to NPR I was surfing CNN or HuffPost or MOMocrats. But last night? Last night I went to bed when the kids did. And I slept a peaceful sleep. This morning, I gripped the steering wheel a little less and there were tunes instead of news coming out of my radio. That’s not to say I’m reverting back to my head in the sand ways, but it’s nice to be able to relax on my way to work instead of inventorying my house for my move to Canada.

This morning, this is what lifted my spirits.

If you need more music, Wreke’s theme for NaBloPoMo is Blatantly Bad 70s Music.

    Seems you have guessed the song that was playing on my iPod when I pushed Ethan out into this world. This is one song that just lifts my spirits and makes me do what needs to be done…

    You should make this your theme song for the next 4 years as your new goal should be to rally the troops into Service…. something I’ve been thinking about lately.

    Oh man, I hear you. I’ve been freaking out in a quiet, internal way (and sometimes loudly, to anyone who will listen) for months. Wheeeeeeew.

    I fell asleep at 8pm last night – woke up to put The Minion to bed at 9:30 and slept the sleep of the truly mentally exhausted till 6am. It’s like a huge freaking sugar crash. I almost feel liquid in comparison to the last weeks…months…years?
