Eight hours. In a row. With no interruptions.
That is a milestone for me. I can't remember that last time I have slept that long! Jimmy took the kids to his parents' house last night, and so after spending over an hour cleaning up my kitchen (I had made homemade pizza--including the crust, two loaves of bread, and cinnamon rolls for them to take with them), I got my new book, Sparkly Green Earrings by Melanie Shankle, and went to bed. At 9:00!
I read for almost two hours, and then.......sleep! I can't remember the last time I have felt so rested. I guess I am extra tired from the marathon training (which includes my getting up to run at 4:30 AM at least once a week--twice this past week), and just life in general. I usually sleep only 5-6 hours each night. But now I am caught up!
Today we are celebrating Russ's birthday. Which means that we get to see Millie Janalee!
I still have groceries to buy, presents to wrap, food to prepare, laundry to put away, etc. But I am rested and ready!
I am trying two new recipes this week, and if they turn out well I will post them!
