Day 53 – Sleep and self-care

I fell asleep in the recliner last night.

What can I say? It was a long week. I’d just eaten a bowl of pasta. And I’m fairly certain my iron levels have been running a little low (don’t worry, I’ve got a stash of iron supplements that always helps me get back on track).

By 7:00 pm, Henry and I were snuggled up in the chair. By 7:30 pm, I was nodding off. And by 9:30, everyone in the house was snoozing.

So yeah, technically this blog post is about 12 hours late, but hey–my blog, my rules. And I truly believe that missteps or stumbling blocks or failures are not truly failures if we take the time to learn from them and keep challenging ourselves to move forward.

Choosing to take an early night and not force a blog post just to meet my own self-imposed goal of completing another 365 project is a choice I’m not going to feel particularly bad about. It’s all about balance and priorities, and last night’s priority was indulging in a little self-care and getting a full night’s sleep.

And yeah, it feels good.

Now, let’s get back to it.

Day 46 – Tapped out

It has been a week! Busy days at work, after school activities, evening events, and a couple really late nights. Plus, this damn freezing weather and more snow.

Whew!

I’m treating myself and my tired body to a little self-care, which includes a glass of wine an early(ish) bedtime.

Can someone please tell Electra to sleep in tomorrow?
