Winding Down

Sometimes it’s impossible to wind down, and i’m not just talking about with the kiddos in our lives.  When I lay down to go to sleep my mind goes CRAZY and it drives me nuts!!!!

Ya know, by the end of the day, you’ve went to work, you’ve busted your butt, sat in grewling traffic, pulled your hair out (well most days), got home cooked supper, got the princess a shower, helped with homework, dried her hair, and finally got her to sleep….

Okay… how at this point is your mind even functioning?! I mean I know it’s a normal typical day, but it is tiring, so how in the WORLD are you WIDE awake, and can’t get your mind to STOP thinking about what else you need to do.

There are only enough hours in the day, and I wouldn’t trade my life for anything in the world…. but sometimes I would just love to go to sleep, and get a goods nice rest. Anybody with me?

Somtimes I lay awake and count the hours until I need to get up…. Below is an example of one of my sleep records. Believe it or not, this is on a better night.

In the past week, me and my Princess have came up with an alternative way to set our minds at ease…. Coloring.

I have to say, it’s really worked for us both, and I don’t want to jinx myself or her, but it’s been great.  It’s our special time together, just the two of us, exploring our artsy side and winding our brain down.  Focusing on the designs.

Has anyone tried coloring? I really love my adult coloring book.  Call me crazy, but it’s therauptic for both of us.  It makes me feel like a kid again.

I would love to hear if anyone else has enjoyed coloring as much as the two of us do.
