Finally I was forced out of bed by Remewin's supplications for nourishment.
The sky was still dark outside and I wondered, sadly, how early I was rising. So I checked the clock before going to her room.
I stood there slightly shocked and finally recognized the sound of rain outside...it was overcast.
Ralexwin was already at work and I had absolutely no recollection of him leaving.
The kids were all in the family room staring at various screens.
I was still wishing I could go back to bed. 8:30?
It's an hour later now and I'm still in my bathrobe. I still feel like it should be 7AM, but I have to get up now and clean because the house is a mess (per the usual) and it needs some serious attention.
My mom used to tell me that when the Lord said "...ye shall find rest unto your souls." (Matthew 11:29) He must have meant we'd be able to get some sleep after we died.
I think I'm inclined to agree with her.
