Goals & Gratitude 7/29/19

Monday, July 29, 2019

I am really struggling with sleep right now. I'm slept 6 hours or less at night the last three nights. Two of those nights I had to get up early and I tend not to fall asleep until after midnight. Last night, I didn't fall asleep until after 2 AM, then I woke up at 7:30 AM and couldn't get back to sleep. I got up and I'm been busy Sparking and doing chores, but I'm really tired. I'm going to try to nap this afternoon and see if that helps. Hopefully I will sleep better tonight. I think it's because of the heat. I have AC in my bedroom at night, but I'm still so hot. I end up sleep on top of bed with no sheets on me just to stay cool. I'm not in menopause yet but I have hot flashes regularly at night. I think when I do hit menopause, it's going to be a nightmare.

I finished up my Business Law class Saturday night. I have a A (95%) in it right now, but there are a couple of things still to be graded and the extra credit that I did throughout the quarter has to be added in. I will definitely get an A. I should also get an A in Management, but I am waiting for my professor to grade my term paper. Now I am down to just two Accounting classes until the beginning of September. I am glad that I have more time to devote to them and that I will have more time to rest in the evenings. I miss reading or watching TV in the evenings to relax. I also have more time to exercise now. I will be taking a good walk this evening when it's cooler, and I have a meeting with my trainer at the gym tomorrow.

I went to our local monastery with some ladies from church yesterday. There's a talk on the last Sunday of the month. It was packed. There had to be 75 or 80 people there for the talk, which was wonderful, though I didn't understand it all, and I'd like to hear it again. Someone did record it, so I'll get a CD of it next month. I love going to the monastery, but it makes for a very long day, as it's 3 hours each way. At least it's only once a month.

Today's Goals:
1) Deal with the laundry. That's my last chore to do today. Everything's clean but it needs to be put away.
2) Read two chapters and do discussion board for Auditing. I asked for an extension on the homework as I've been so busy with Management and Business Law that I haven't had time to start.
3) Read the chapter for Managerial Accounting tonight and go through the PowerPoint.

Today I'm Grateful For...
1) That I got up early and had time to Spark this morning.
2) That I have AC.
3) That I have plenty of leftovers and don't have to cook this week.

    But you can still teach with a MA, right? Hope sleep gets better for you. Sounds like perimenopause.
