I slept a LOT last night. I went to bed around 2 AM, after picking my housemates up at a party that I had left earlier in the evening. (I like parties, I do, but after an hour or so, I'm totally drained. I guess it's part of my being more of an introvert than an extrovert.) So anyway, I didn't go to sleep until after 2 AM. Before going to sleep, I turned my phone on silent. Bad plan, Batman, I didn't wake up until 12:45 this afternoon. Yes, I slept almost 11 hours. Insanity.
I feel bad because I was supposed to go to church with a friend this morning, and I hate not keeping my commitments. But I can only imagine that I really needed the sleep. I haven't been getting enough lately, and community life has just been really hectic this week. Not to mention that it is almost Christmas, and I feel a lot of pressure to find gifts for my family, and yet have to remember that I am living on such a strict budget that I can't really afford much.
Stress. Gotta love it.
There is a 5K coming up next week that I am doing with a friend, and I have not trained at all. Luckily, I can fake my way through 5K pretty easily by now. It will be fun, I think. Next year, starting in January, I think we are going to start training for a 5M, and then for a Half Marathon in May. I do love a good half marathon, especially if my friend Kate from Michigan will be able to come out for it.
I just feel like I'm rambling now. Which I guess means it is time to get out of bed and do something...
