Have had holidays (thus the week of silence). Woke up this morning at 4.30am - wide awake with my mind racing with all that needs to happen with the kids, work, life in general. I don't like it, but waking up in the middle of the night, stressing out, seems to be part of the territory these days. It didn't happen on holidays so it is definitely a stress thing.
However, the good news is that I am now off to (hopefully) get my braces off. Exciting.
