I had such a nice weekend.
For all of last week, I was feeling overtired, strung out, highly stressed, and extra cranky. I screamed at my son, growled at my daughters, and had no patience for my students. I felt restless and fidgety, and couldn't focus on anything for long. In short, I was a real mess.
And so Friday night, right after dinner, I ignored the dirty dishes in the sink and I went to sleep. And I slept. And slept and slept and slept. Until 4:30 the next afternoon. I woke up intermittently to visit the bathroom, drink some water, take a shower, and serve my kids Shabbos lunch. Otherwise, I slept. And when I finally woke up, that buzzing sound in my head had gone away, and I felt so much better.
Yesterday, I spent the morning with my son. We did a bit of shopping and visited the eye doctor. In the afternoon, while Supermangirl was at a birthday party, I took Wonderwoman out to lunch, just the two of us. We went to the pizza shop, nothing fancy, but it was nice to spend time alone with her. I could see that she really enjoyed it. Afterward, I spent 3 hours (!) helping her study for upcoming tests, but because I was rested and relaxed, it was pleasant instead of draining.
It's amazing what 20 solid hours of sleep can do for you.
