not at all our ordinary

Della is asleep.
not on me or next to me
or on anyone.
she's alone in the other room.
Granted, she is on my bed, the bed I will sleep in...
and worn out from a day of copious snot and some farm animals and a trip to target and a walk downtown

but we don't do this.
this is not at all our ordinary
it is the oddest thing ever to have her be asleep in there and have me awake in here

she fell asleep at 6 and will wake, starved and imperious, somewhere between now and 3am.

but here we are.
in separate rooms.

I've checked her a few times, she is now 90 degrees away from her starting position.
I'm going to go have some dinner.
maybe read a book?
I don't have the faintest idea what to do which is insane and just goes to show just how far down the rabbit hole I've fallen

I can SO identify with this. You will figure out what to do with yourself soon enough!

Isn't it strange to think that sometime it will be. . .always? (Well, not yet for me, of course, L still invades my bed between 11 and 2 each night, but, someday. . .so strange.) Settle yourself with a lovely cup of tea and something you really want to read or watch on TV, in my experience, that almost ALWAYS wakes them up.

Yay for new found time on your hands.

I am so there with you!!! Except Izzy will go to bed on her own when I lay down with her and she falls asleep until we all come in to share the same bed!!!!
But she has been going so late since we were on vacation that we now go at the same time!
Enjoy these snatched moments and eventually it will be normal....I did say eventually though!!!
