The Results Are In

ATTENTION SHELLI -- Read this post the next time the time changes!!!

Throwing off my schedule is WAY better than getting myself into a sleep deficit!!!

Yesterday was awful! I felt miserable all day long. I certainly tired myself out by bedtime, but it didn't help me fall asleep any better. I definitely slept hard all night; I remember waking a few times, but I went right back to sleep afterward. I didn't wake up until 9:30 am today -- that was a full 12 hours (mildly interrupted) of sleep! And, I can still feel the deficit. I'm going to need to take it easy for awhile longer, probably through the weekend.

How I wish some of you could have been a fly on my wall at 6:30 am yesterday morning to buzz in my ear, "Don't do it, Shelli! No, don't!"

On the happy side: I had such a nice day with my kids yesterday! My 8 year old son was showing me how to be an Avatar -- he is so creative, I just laughed at his antics. My 17 year old daughter found a way to get me talking about when I was a teen. My 15 year old son came in my room right before bed (my bedtime is earlier than his, how funny is that?). He was in a hilarious mood, and I really enjoyed him.

AND -- I'm on my way to the spa in a couple of minutes! Full massage, salt scrub and body wrap. Once again, thank you to the world's best husband ever!!!

Well, at least you learned something from this experience, right? I also woke up horribly early today. My husband got up at 6 am but forgot to turn off his alarm (probably hit the snooze), so it went off while he was in the shower and blasted me out of sleep! I was so mad! And I couldn't get back to sleep, but as soon as I got my son on the school bus, I went back to bed for a short nap. Yes, a 2-nap day today, but it helped.

Hope you enjoy your spa visit -
