Five for Friday 4 – June

Posted on Updated on

Well it has been one week and I have run, lifted, and swam this week. More in one week than I have done in the last couple months combined (maybe not, but it feels that way). I did not get to do as much as I wanted to because life stepped in, but I expected this. I am feeling sleep deprived again. I even tried napping after meditation today and could not. I have become rather slothful as a result. Her Majesty seems to be on an owl’s sleep pattern and she drags me right along with it (actually, I feel more like the mouse avoiding that owl in the dark). I think it is just the change in routine from her school routine that has led to this (the same goes for Little Bit’s illnesses). Hopefully, this will not last much longer. Even if it does, I will still be able to do what I can, which is more than I do during the work season.
