I went to bed before MIDNIGHT last night. (11:50 to be exact!!!) All my evening tasks had been completed. I worked out and showered. I did not give in to the fb gaming temptation. I headed up to bed by 11, finished a show I was watching on dvd, and even read for about 15 min. I was tired and didn't push myself past tired like I usually do. It felt great. Now, I did wake twice to a screaming kiddo (in need of covers and/or comfort), but it was a quick cure. I got nearly 7 hrs of sleep. Wow that's like sleeping in on the weekend. :) I woke in the a.m. feeling pretty refreshed. I worked in A's classroom this a.m. and didn't even need a nap. I am realizing my desire to nap during the day has gone down quite a bit. I love a good nap, but I know it also ate into my night time sleeping and fed into the cycle of late night bed times.
So tonight, I'm going to head upstairs and do a lil workout then shower. I'd love to read again and enjoy the cozy bed with stacks of pillows. YEAAAAAA sleep!!!
