I couldn’t shut my brain off last night

I didn’t sleep last night at all. I maybe got a couple of hours of restless sleep. I’ve been doing so good with sleep lately and usually go to bed around 10 PM. Last night, however, I just couldn’t fall asleep.

I’m really stressed out and I kept replaying the last two weeks of my life, over and over again in my head. I couldn’t shut it off. I’m the kind of person who needs to be able to make sense of things, and I’m struggling to make sense of everything that’s happened to my family.

Between that, being nervous about the upcoming school year, and stressing out over being enough for my kids, I just couldn’t shut my brain off.

It’s for reasons of complete and utter exhaustion that I’m taking the kids to school and going to bed for a little while. I’m so tired, and I’m not going to get a second wind if I don’t crash for a little while.

Thankfully, the kids slept well, and they’re dressed and ready to head to their first day of school. Emmett did have nightmares last night, but they did it keep him awake. I’ll have to talk to him about the nightmares and make sure he’s okay.
