Have you ever had a period of days all so busy, so full that you need a day of recovery? I love being busy, but we hadn't had a break in our schedule for way too long. Nothing was particularly exhausting (though the teething-induced lack of sleep wasn't helping), but everything was adding up to a sum greater than its parts. I felt like I do when we return from vacation and I tell myself, I need a vacation from my vacation.
We finally had our recovery day yesterday. It was beautiful. Tye slept until 9:30am. When she fell asleep for her nap at noon, we were both still in our pajamas. After waking an hour into her nap, she fell asleep in my arms and I decided to simply sit on the couch and watch recorded TV shows until she woke up. She took another half hour nap at 5, and still went to bed about 8:30, within her normal range. I guess I wasn't the only one feeling like I needed a day to recharge.
