I’ve had a full day today, although I did try to rest today, which was a dismal failure for me.
This morning I had breakfast with some other Altrusans. Julie and I decided as cochairs that it would be nice to get together with Altrusans outside of meetings just to talk. So, we’ve had two gatherings so far – both with very little lead time – and both have been good. This morning was not well attended but maybe people don’t get up early on Saturday. Sometimes I do, sometimes I don’t.
Anyway, I came home and made some cupcakes for tonight’s Father Daughter Dance being put on by Altrusa. I then went upstairs and back to bed. I have been getting the message repeatedly that I need to rest. I fell a couple of weeks ago. Then a couple of nights ago I had a really rough night of stomach upset and spent most of Friday in bed, trying to rest. Anyway, I decided I want to try and pay attention to the universe telling me to rest so it doesn’t have to give me the message in a harder, different way.
Unfortunately, I did not really get a nap today. Unless I’m ill, I think laying in bed is just a huge waste of time. I could have been accomplishing something during that time. Anyway, I stayed in bed about three hours and I tried to sleep. I did doze, but never fully slept.
I had not planned to go to breakfast this morning unless I just woke up. I went to bed about 2 a.m. and at 7:05, my eyes were wide open and I was ready to start the day. So, I don’t know. I just don’t seem to be wired that way but I’m going to try and be better about getting some extra rest. I feel like I’m getting that message from the universe and I want to pay attention to it before it gives me the message in a much more dramatic way.
The father daughter dance is for girls 6-12. It’s a really neat event. We do punch and cookies and keep it pretty simple. It’s so adorable to see the daddies, grandfathers, uncles and whatever with the little girls. The bunch tonight was pretty wild but it was a good evening. I will be putting some photos on my live journal, but they’re not there yet.
Mark is down for the weekend from Kansas City. I was doing so well at preparing for his visit until I got ill Thursday night and so I, again, didn’t have his bed ready for him. Poor guy he always has to end up putting his own sheets on!
Greg and Mark went to see Gone With the Wind tonight at the Fox. The Fox is a beautiful, 1930s theatre that has been restored. Last weekend we saw North by Northwest. I took a group there to see it and even though I’m not a movie person, seeing the old clothes and such was neat.
We just got in from a late night bite at I-Hop — the only place that is open late here. We’re just chatting but I’m going on to bed soon. Gotta get some of that rest! 🙂
