Well, after the three weeks of madness, life has returned (sort of) to normal. Have I mentioned how much I dislike having weekday plans? And naturally, the ONE time I register for a weekly class, it occurs during the 3-4 weeks in which I have 2-3 other weekday plans in the same week. To say I'm exhausted would be an understatement, and I'm looking forward to getting back to the normal pace of life. I have an uber-intense work-week, but a light social calendar, which means time for workouts and healthy cooking.
The Manfriend and I headed just over the Iowa / MN border this weekend to play a little craps and roulette at a silly little casino that we'd randomly stopped in back in July -- we didn't walk away winners financially, but had a blast and a day away together was just what the doctor ordered. Once back in his house, we both immediately fell asleep on the sofa, and then I proceeded to go home around 5 and stay up WAY too late -- doing laundry, catching up on email, dishes, etc. So the first order of business is to get the sleep schedule normalized -- I'll be hitting the hay, technology-free, at 10 PM and not a moment later (maybe even earlier), after making some sort of healthy dinner.
The bad habit I've gotten into since the entrance into my life of the beloved iPad is that I stay up way too late messing around online -- emails, blogs, Words With Friends, solitaire, reading... I can't seem to put it down. So tonight baby iPad will sleep in another room and I will disconnect at 9 PM -- after a healthy dinner and a jaunt on the treadmill.
Off and running,
