Trouble Sleeping

I had trouble sleeping last night.
An acquaintance at work lost his wife this weekend. She went to the hospital with a toothache, got some pain meds, went to bed, and never woke up. I would guess she is close to my age, with young kids, like mine. A very sobering day at work.
Then, at bedtime my 8 year old daughter didn't want me to leave because she was afraid of having a bad dream where we were in the big city and we got separated. "I don't want to lose you", she was crying. Normally that wouldn't keep me from sleeping, except for the fact of the friend's wife dying the previous night.
I stayed with her until she was asleep. Even then I just wanted to hold on to her for the rest of the night.

Honestly, WHAT am I thinking sometimes...

What made me think I would take the time to maintain a blog? How many half-done, half-baked projects do I have out there? I'm an "idea" person...not a do-it person. So is my husband. How many half-done, half-baked house projects do we have? How often do we actually eat a complete dinner? Why are my kids out of control some days?


What was I thinking?
