I now know why I feel like I move through life like a turtle. It's because I do. And I think I know why. This trip back has slammed my sleep cycle. I need sleep. Lots of it. These days I usually turn lights out about 10, toss & turn. Up at 2. Sometimes 4. A pee and a bit of milk. Eventually go back to sleep until 7 or 8. Which is a bit late--by the time I eat, shower, have some Bible time, exercise; well, it's almost noon! Randy calls between 4 and 6. There's a few laps on the noodle (a noun, not a state of being :) after dinner. In bed by 9 to read. That leaves me about 4 hours to do anything and everything. Mind you, I only do one thing at a time these days, given my always-sleepy state.
Ah, well. Not complaining. Just some self-realization.
Anyway. Here's a few things that have been going on despite all the Ishee Tishee:
Before I left UB, my Bible study gals met out at Beverly's cabin outside the city. Loverly!
