It is very rare that I have a sleepless night. I’m guessing that at least 360 nights out of the year, I go to bed, instantly fall asleep and don’t wake up til I’ve had 6 or 7 hours of sleep. Last night was not one of those nights. It was after 11 when I went to bed and Addie was still awake, which is weird too. We were talking and she asked if last night was my last night. I explained that it was Wednesday so we still have Wednesday, Thursday and Friday nights together and I leave on Saturday. She started crying . . I don’t want you to go! I told her “I always come back!” and she said “But not the next day!” I explained to her that I have my home and she has her home and we spend as much time together as we can, and we love our time together and we make good memories but I can’t be here all the time and I’ll always come back within a few months. She wasn’t totally thrilled with that explanation but I think she understood it . . at least she understands that I HAVE to go and I will come back.
We both went right to sleep but at 3 a.m., I was awake. There were a lot of things I was thinking about and once I start thinking, I know going back to sleep isn’t going to happen. Finally, at 4:30, I got up.
I’m betting both Addie and I need naps this afternoon.
It’s looking like I’m not even going to finish Addie’s socks. That’s ok . . I came here to spend time with her . . the knitting can happen at home. Today and tomorrow I will enjoy doing things with her.
