Cozy spot

I am so tired, I think I could sleep for a week. I really want to find a cozy spot to hunker down and just close my eyes, relax and feel all of the tension ease out of my back and shoulders, and just ... sleeeeeep ...
Yes, that is what I want to do. The boys woke up Grandma at 4 am, and me at 4:30 am. They wouldn't go back to sleep!!! I think they knew that Grandma was flying home today and didn't want to waste time sleeping. So we, tired as can be, got up with the boys and made them breakfast, got everything ready, and at 6:30 am left for Edmonton International Airport. It is roughly a 1 & 1/2 hour drive with no traffic, and we hit some morning rushers, but I drove expertly through the rain at just under the speed limit and delivered my Mother-In-Law safely at the airport on time. Of course the boys, snuggled in their new car seats under quilts and grasping warm bottles of milk, SLEPT the whole way there and most of the way back. Lucky guys. They found their cozy spot!! When we arrived at home the boys, refreshed from their long sleep, were ready to rock while I am even more tired than before after the drive!!! I can feel my eyes close slowly, and I yank them back open to be alert lest the boys take advantage of my state and get into something. Perhaps this afternoon while they nap (IF they nap...) I could curl up on the couch under a comfy quilt, bury my head in a pile of pillows, and just drift off... I think I will do that. Wish me luck!!!
