I woke-up around 5:00 AM and found Mark sleeping beside me. Unlike the last two weeks, I woke-up without feeling empty.
My world is better again.
Last night, I picked up Mark from MCI and we did dinner at Ole’ Tapas. Over a tasty Catalan seafood broth and patatas bravas, we caught-up on work, friends and random headlines. I could feel the weeks of bitter isolation and negative vibes melt away over glasses of margaritas.
Over the last two weeks, I finished a bottle of wine, Jameson, four Red Stripes and one Dos Equis. Anything to fall asleep on my own.
And the best thing about this weekend, I don’t have to fall asleep at noon today! I have entire Sunday with my husband – going to church, eating out, watching a movie and maybe even going to trivia night at a Lawrence bar. That’s because I’ve heading to prime time, starting tomorrow. After a little schedule switch-up at work, I’m now producing an evening news show. Woot! More resources, viewers, reporters, photogs and crazy good times.
It will take some time to adjust my body to a new sleep schedule, but I totally think it’s worth it! Anything for the chance to fall asleep with my husband and my baby.
