Pooped …

The past two years I have really tried to focus on getting more sleep at night. I have written before about how I can honestly go with very little sleep for a very long time. And then I have bouts of insomnia on top of that. The past two years I have literally forced myself to stay in bed and rest. Now, after a ton of practice I can usually fall back to sleep. Go me! There are, however, those bouts of insomnia that still occur. And boy oh boy do I feel them now. I think it was almost better when I slept less, HA! The past two nights I have slept terribly. The first night I couldn’t fall asleep then woke up about 4 hours after I finally did. Then last night I tossed and turned. OY. When these bouts occur I am usually OK for most of the day and then suddenly, at no specific time or after any particular activity, IT HITS me.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you aren’t pooped!!!

We lost a part of our past …

Prince Rogers Nelson died today. If you were in high school in the 1980s this stings. A lot. He was an icon. A gifted musician who’s talents reached far beyond just music. He influenced our fashion, our hair cuts and even how we danced. He showed us what passion looked like. ELECTRIFIED. 

May he rest in peace.

Well, I hope you all had a day where you didn’t lose a part of your past!!!

Picking up where we left off …

This morning I got to meet with my dear friend Paula. We saw each other a few weeks ago at her birthday party but prior to that I can’t remember the last time we got to spend some REAL time together. I’ll admit it, I missed the heck out of her. Knowing I was seeing her today made me feel like a kid at Christmas! And regardless of the time that had passed we fell easily into our deep conversations and laughter. Like time stood still waiting for us. Yep, having friends like this is the BEST.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you picked up where you left off!!!

Fascinated by oatmeal …

Reese and I love oatmeal. My other kids ate oatmeal when they were younger but not one of them will even consider it now. To me oatmeal is THE healthy breakfast and when my kids would eat it, I felt like I somehow climbed to higher rung on the motherhood ladder. At least for that day anyway, HA!

There is something odd about oatmeal though. The heat it retains. Seriously we should insulate houses and the space shuttle with this stuff. It keeps the heat locked in! I have tried to figure it out too. But I can’t. Is it the density? Is it the liquid? Is it the mushy consistency? What on earth keeps it so hot for so long? I’ll admit it, I am totally tripped out … yes … by oatmeal.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you are fascinated!!!

Relaxed and renewed …

I went to a beautiful wedding shower at the beach today for one of my best friend’s daughter. And ya wanna know what’s crazy?

First, that my friends have children who are old enough to actually get married. And second, that I can go to the beach, without even laying on the sand, and feel like I went on a mini-vacation.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you feel relaxed and renewed!
