Today will be a 2 post day. Woah, crazy talk, right? But I raced last night, and I need to do a recap, and I don’t want to wait all weekend, and then there’s Manic Monday… so you wouldn’t get the recap until Tuesday, and that’s just too long. So prepare for a second dose of Rae on your Friday 😉
We’re off to New York state tonight. As I mentioned on Monday, Ben’s cousin Lindsey is graduating from college today, so there will be a party in her honor tomorrow. We haven’t visited this side of the family in a while, so it will be nice to see everyone. We are also camping in their yard, so fingers crossed for no rain and no ticks!
I’ve gone to bed no later than 10:30 pm every night this week. I’m trying to make sleep more of a priority, for both my physical and mental health, and I have to say, it’s made a marked improvement on my demeanor. I’m not saying I hop out of bed all bright-eyed and bushy-tailed every morning, but I’m definitely less cranky and lethargic throughout the day. Ben and I have both re-committed to early bed times during the week, and I’m excited to see what this continues to do for me.
This has been a stressful week, and next week will be too. One of my co-workers is out on a cruise (lucky duck!) and I’m the backup for all of her work. Usually it’s not a big deal, but there’s just a lot of stuff she does that I don’t do often enough to feel comfortable with it, and there is even more stuff that she does that I have absolutely no idea how to do. So every day is kind of a crapshoot and I never know what to expect. And this is in addition to my new role that I started on May 1st. I will be very, very glad when she’s back in the office on May 26th.
What’s your normal bed time?
