(I actually got in bed around 12:30, but spent almost three hours tossing and turning before finally giving up and surrendering to my sleeplessness. I went through some old stacks of mail to find not one, not two, not three, but four credit cards waiting to be activated - guess I should start opening my mail more often.)
Yeah, so, that whole "going to work" thing? That's a lot of why I can't sleep. Okay, I will admit that my having gone to bed yesterday at 5:30am and sleeping until 4:30pm may be part of it. And having a caffeinated beverage with dinner at 8:30 probably also didn't help. But mostly I find that I'm too nervous to sleep, because
I mentioned before that I was talking with a new family about a nanny position, and after much deliberation on both sides, we have all decided that it's a good fit for everyone involved. I've had working interviews already - I've spent multiple days with the two boys - but I'm still nervous about my first REAL day tomorrow. I've been through enough "first" days by now that I know it will all be fine and I'm worrying for nothing. But somehow, knowing that doesn't actually help me feel less nervous.
Four o' clock in the morning is not the time for "demystifying black heels," which I know I've promised to do, so unfortunately, that will have to wait for another time. I suppose I was just hoping that by writing about my nervousness, I might release enough of it to get some sleep. I think it's time to go see if it worked...
Wish me luck!
