I am thankful for night time "aha" moments. I was seriously annoyed with the night time hot flashes and waking up all the time. I remembered at some point last night that I used to get up to check on Mom in the middle of the night and fall right back into bed and go to sleep. If I can do that I can flip off a blanket and go back to sleep. It doesn't have to be a big deal.
I woke up once early after I went to bed. I turned on the fan and went back to sleep. I know I woke up during the night but I didn't stress about it. I didn't really wake fully until 5 a.m. I felt so much more rested!
