The day started off with a very unhappy 1 year old, crying out at 1am. She has teeth coming in and was not happy. It was a pleasure seeing her during the night. I especially loved it when she fell asleep resting her head on my shoulder. There is nothing more precious than this feeling, a little ones breath, my little ones breath on my neck as she takes a breath in and out, while she sleeps.
After I got Emily back to sleep, I tried desperately to go back to sleep myself. My mind was racing about all of my work to do's. Instead of laying in bed awake, I got out of bed and worked for a couple hours. I figured my restlessness was productive instead of getting increasingly annoyed as the time ticked away on my clock.
I started the day tired and it went quickly downhill during my morning meetings. It took me a while to recover. Thanks goodness for the people I work near. They helped me overcome hurdles and get through the day. A crass joke by one of my co-workers definitely changed the mood, for the better.
I grabbed lunch and added a nice chewy chocolate chip cookie to the menu as a reward for simply making it to lunch. Knowing the issues I had faced earlier in the day, a woman that works for me brought me back another cookie from a local bakery. She is very thoughtful and I went ahead and ate this one too as I had earned it.
I really hope Wednesday isn't going to be a 2 cookie day!!
