Forced recuperation …

I woke up at 4 am. WIDE. AWAKE. On a Saturday. I purposely did my long run yesterday so I could sleep in today. And honestly, by “sleeping in” I mean I was hoping to sleep until 6 am. But, nope. My body wasn’t having any part of that. Or maybe my brain was to blame. Either way, I woke up 2 hours earlier than I wanted to after two days of feeling exhausted. So I refused to let myself get up. My body was going to get the rest it needed even if I had to duct tape myself to my bed to get it! Sheesh!

Well, I hope you all have a day where you get some forced recuperation!



We are out of town celebrating Sidney, my oldest daughter, this weekend. And we are taking a few extra days to do it, HA! In situations like this it never fails. My body is energized and ready to PARTAY! It doesn’t matter how late I stay up, I wake up early the next day. Like my body and mind are screaming WHAT’S NEXT?!?! Trust me, I would LOVE to sleep in like normal people. But I think my body is worried it’s going to miss something important if we sleep an extra hour or two. Yes body, we will miss a few things … like the undead hours of the day and unopened coffee shops … OY.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you don’t have an innate fear of missing out!!!

Taking the sting out …

Libs has a tennis tournament this morning. It started yesterday and her opponent defaulted. So we went to lunch at a place near the tournament that we don’t get to go to a lot. It made the 40 minute drive AND the 40 minute wait time (we got there early) for the match to be called not so frustrating. Yesterday she also didn’t need to be there until 2 pm, which is WAY better than having to be there earlier and not get to play. This morning 2nd Round begins at 9:30. I had set my alarm on a vacation day! Ouch. But thankfully I woke up before my alarm went off. I love it when that happens. I feel like I didn’t miss out on one of the biggest perks of winter break. SLEEP. I can’t be 100% sure but I think I see a recurring theme happening over the past day.

Well, I hope you all have a day where the sting gets taken out!!!
