Rest for the Weary

I have discovered the cure for [my] insomnia! College. I have not been this wiped out since, well, I don't ever recall being this tired. With all of the exercise hours I've logged in the last year, all of the looming divorce worries, all of the packing and moving across the country, all of the nursing-babies-through-the-night, never, NEVER have I felt this completely zapped.

On Wednesday I wasn't able to scrape myself out of bed to attend spinning class. Let me say that again...I missed spinning class. My greatest addiction lost out to the desperate need to rest my brain. Each subsequent night has been much the same. This morning (no school on Fridays) I slept past 7:30! Mind you, I was sound asleep well before 11:00 p.m.

This makes me realize just how lazy my brain has been for the last, well, several years. Though I've picked up on lots of new skills and facts and whatnot, I've not challenged myself to any real degree. I'm now in the process of retraining my brain to learn, and very much need to teach it to sort and file information for speedy retrieval. And it might just be the fatigue talking, but that seems pretty cool.

And on that note, I'm off to bed. I will rise early tomorrow...a little event I like to call a half-marathon awaits me.
