I told myself that I was going to crawl into bed just as soon as my little lady went down for the night.
I've been running on empty for more days than I can count, and Em's 9pm bedtime seemed so inviting.
It didn't happen.
Instead I held my baby girl for nearly an hour after she fell asleep.
I'm lonely, and holding Emily lessened the loneliness.
Jason went from a business trip in Colorado to a backpacking trip in south eastern Utah, and for the last 8 days of his two weeks away from home he doesn't have phone service.
After I put the little lady to bed I knew I wouldn't be able to sleep and so I spent the rest of the evening, and now into the early morning hours, working on a project.
I haven't quite finished but when I do I'll show you pictures.
I'm sleeping with my bedroom window open tonight because there is nothing I love more than to hear the birds chirping as the sun rises.
And tomorrow I'm going to sneak into the yard of a vacant home and cut some lilac blooms...because I love those too.
Lilacs and birds...spring is here. I've needed spring to be here for a long time.
