It's nice to feel tired because I stayed up too late talking to an old friend. On one hand, tired it tired. But there's something different about having made a conscious decision to have another glass of wine, discuss another point, eat another piece of chocolate. So much of my life has felt out of my control lately that taking some control--even if that meant making decisions that led to me having a headache and being very sleepy today--was a nice change of pace.
Ultimately, I just like knowing what to expect. Being a parent is going to be a lifelong journey in expecting the unexpected and I'm still getting used to that.
