Sleep ..... Where Have You Gone?

Friday, October 11, 2019 why did that thought have to come up today?! emoticon A reminder that I do have to get rest and it's been in short supply this week. Thankfully tomorrow nobody has to be anywhere until 11 so we can sleep in without an alarm. I think Tim will be up early as he's going to help Wendell with some fencing.

I did make it through my client meeting this morning and then went through paid work emails, cleaned up a couple paper traps at my desk and then I couldn't keep my eyes open any longer. Power nap and then I chose to work on my jigsaw puzzle. I got it done!

Tonight Maegann is off with her friend Kim to the gym and a late movie. She is out of school until this coming Friday so today was called "rest and enjoy my day". Tomorrow afternoon she has to go meet with the HR gal at Taco Bell and attend the welcome event for all the new hires. She applied Wednesday online, went to the open interviews yesterday and had a job call within 90 minutes. She needs to raise funds for two school trips as Tim and I can't finance both of them. We told her we would match so she only needs half. One is to NYC and the other LA and would be amazing experiences for her.

Isaac's been home resting. He's exhausted too from a busy week at school and basketball practices.

Tonight Tim and I are catching him up on some of our weekly shows (The Voice, Survivor....).

Tomorrow my plans, other than sleeping in without an alarm, is to draft a client plan, get the spiderweb and green lights up out front and the fall decor inside. It's time!

    Sorry to hear you've been having problems sleeping. You know that I relate to that so much. This week I've been drinking lavender herbal tea and I love my new weighted blanket. That has helped so much. I've gone from having sleeping problems nearly every night to just once in a while now with all the tools I use to help for a better night sleep. I hope you find a good solution for your sleeplessness as well.

    Sometimes I can sleep easily and sometimes not.

    We got to sleep in this morning too, but we got to bed so late last night/early this morning, that it really didn't feel like sleeping in, just felt like regular rest. Enjoy your day and your time with your hubby, so nice that he is able to be home for a little while.

    Hope that not setting an alarm helps. Sometimes I think the whole idea of an alarm going off causes the lack of sleep. Needless to say you are in my prayers.

    Well, young lady, God knows what you need and when you need it and that's why that first quote came up as a reminder so that God doesn't have to put you down. Get some R E S T as you sleep in and I pray it was a sweet rest in Him.

    When does Isaac start with his aide at school that will be going around with him? That should be soon if I remember correctly.

    So, Maegann will be cutting hair, going to school, and working at Taco Bell? That's a lot but you know what she is able to handle and it's okay. Will she stop cutting hair except on her terms with clients and work at Taco Bell or will she be doing all three? As for her two trips, is it a girl's week or weekend both times? Yes, it will be a great experience for her especially going from one coast to the other and she will have such diversity in the cultures which is FANTASTIC!!!!!

    How long will be Tim be home this time around? I am so glad to see that Wendell is still in the picture and the two of them helping each other. That's wonderful!!!!

    Did you ever get your central heat hooked up?

    Girl, you're a wiz with those jig-saw puzzles and I am in AWE of you!!! I love seeing your projects from stage to stage as it's beautiful and it gives me the sense that I am right there with you, which I am in spirit!!!

    ENJOY your day!!!!
