I'm not dead- the pictures to prove it

Tonight I just couldn't sleep. This isn't anything unusual these past few months. There are too many reasons why sleep evades me. I won't bore you with them all. Or maybe I should. That might  actually help me sleep......
1. My niece was diagnosed with Leukemia. You can learn more about her and my sister and brother in law here https://www.facebook.com/#!/Bronwyn.vs.leukemia
Part of a painting I did for my sister and her family
2. We are settling in. This would seem like a reason to rest well and be content. Yes those things are true and have helped me to rest easy. However, being the 'new' family is still difficult. Also as we make friends and start to love our surrounding and love seeing our kids thrive and not just survive I get a little nervous. I just don't want to be in a situation anytime soon where we would have to leave it all. I'm sure that won't happen but having lived through some stuff I know to never get too comfortable. I think that's sad and that is what keeps me up.
A super yummie latte I made at work. I LOVE my job.
3. Money sucks. I'm pretty sure this subject keeps more than just me awake some nights. Having said that I can't really complain. We are doing well enough. We can buy food and pay bills. That's pretty freakin great.
4. My son will be in middle school next year! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
5. I love to help people. Help with whatever I can. Many times in my life I have let that part of me trump the needs of my family and mostly myself. I'm working on it. I find myself feeling guilty that I can't support or really 'be there' for everyone who I see needs it. That keeps me up.




Trinity and I ready for a night at the theatre
6. Hey this is working I'm getting really sleepy. I'm gonna try and catch some zzzzzz's
