it’s shortly after 5 in the morning, and i’m wide awake. in fact i have been since 3:15. we went to bed around 10:45, and after much tossing, turning, and a move to the couch, i think i probably fell asleep a little after midnight. that means i’ve had about 3 hours of sleep, and no matter what i do my body won’t relax enough to let me sleep more. i’m a bit worried about being exhausted today. hopefully there will be time for a nap after i get my epidural, yes i fully plan on having one. brad has the alarm set to go off in about 30 minutes; maybe i’ll see if i can at least get my eyes to stayed closed for that long. . .
