Nathalie's Notes

Raising the Hardy Boys

DSCF4438

It occurred to me yesterday that life doesn't have to be hard. There are things that suck and funks to go through but that's okay. I mean, you don't have to try to change that fact about life. And somehow knowing that, remembering it, leaves you open to more joy.

I'm not sure if I was in some kind of delayed post-partum deal or what but I'm feeling more balanced and more like me. It helps that I'm sleeping more- thank you God, Sam and Dr.K – and also that I'm back to working on my book again. I need to figure out how to keep working on it while on deadline for other projects.

Last week when Sam's sleep shenanigans came to head I was totally out of my mind. Matt asked me when I last worked on my book. While his timing is suspect, he nailed it. Creative writing is more than a hobby for me. It's like right up there with sleep and oxygen

    He’s getting so big! What a cutie. I’m so glad to read that you are feeling better. Sleep is such an amazing remedy, isn’t it? So happy to hear that you and Sam are getting more of it. 🙂
