I don't know what's the matter with me. For the past 2-3 weeks, I have been unable to sleep more than 6 1/2 hours a night, even on the weekends. I wake up feeling exhausted, but can only doze until I finally rouse myself out of bed. It's not insomnia because I have no trouble falling asleep... the problem is staying asleep after I've had the minimum number of hours my body needs to function. Too much on my mind I suppose. Unsurprisingly, I woke up early and exhausted again... and I do believe I'm fighting a cold (sore throat, foggy brain).
I needed something to pick me up this morning, so I choose an outfit that made me feel especially pretty. (By the way, am I the only one who does things like that? DH dresses like a slob when he's tired or down or stressed. I'm the total opposite and dress in an effort to improve my mood.) I paired it with a black lace pencil skirt and pale pink cardigan that would compliment the softness of the blouse without overpowering it. I pulled out these shoes that I love, but which for no good reason, I haven't worn at all this season.
About 30 minutes into my work day, I was surprised to hear the doorbell ring. It was my good friend and neighbour from next door. She stopped for coffee this morning, and thought to bring me one just because. Very sweet of her, and just the pick me up I needed on this dreary morning (both weather and soul).
