Not much sleep

Last night was hard. Skunk struggled to go to sleep at all and then I couldn't get her back in bed at 2200. I could get her asleep on me but as soon as I put her down, the screaming started. I tried 3 times to lay her down and each time she woke up. So I slept in Bear's bed w/ Skunk on my chest. I got the blankets all messed up and I was shaking and so tired and cold. But if I moved, Skunk would cry out and wriggle. So I just laid there, cold and miserable until I fell asleep. I didn't sleep well at all and kept waking up all night. Skunk was up at 555a and I walked and sang until 625a. Somehow she is able to sleep in this morning nap, I wish she would skip it and sleep in the afternoon when she is tired beyond belief. Somehow that doesn't happen though. We are on day 5 so hopefully things will be a tiny bit better tomorrow. I am so hateful and mean that no one should have to be around me... wish I could just go live in the woods until my mood improves.

I am praying that God helps me to be thankful for my house, even through the difficulties in the way that it is set up. I am claiming:

Isaiah 40:28-31

Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary and his understanding no one can fathom.

He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.

Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall;

but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

This is my prayer (probably forever)!
