I slept! Last night, from about 2:30 to morning! (Excepting of course nursing Elisheva, but since she sleeps in our bed, I don't really wake up for this much). I think I'm over the hump pf recovery, which I am very grateful for.
In other sad news, Samuel and Aleatha left this morning at four a.m. I wish they could have stayed longer; Aleatha and I had some really neat conversations. We don't know when we'll meet again, either, because Samuel is applying for graduate schools for next year, so where they go will depend on our next visit. I love having family; I love being a part of families.
I've been busy dreaming of Ohio. I'm looking forward to seeing what belongins we actually own. Like my kitchen-aid, whom I love (and yes, it is a person). Or all of the cute baby toys and decorations for Lydia and Elisheva's room. Or a baby changing table. I know that they aren't necessary, but I like having them a lot. Also our books; books are like old friends, and having them all packed up makes me feel like my roots are gone. I keep on wanting to look something up or reference something from one of my books, but then I can't. I'm not talking about facts or anything here; I'm not very good at reading non-fiction. I mean like finding out where Anne of Green Gables was in her fictional life when she was my age (pregnant with her first child).
