Unpacking...

I had to come to work early this morning because D.T. needs the car to go to a dentist appointment to have his crown put in. I don't usually have these extra few minutes to myself before the day starts. I think I will use them to unpack my brain a bit. Come to think of it, my life needs some unpacking, too. Since my class has been over, I have enjoyed not having homework or reading to do. Yet, the other things that I thought would be accomplished still lay there untouched. I am realizing that my problem is not school. Rather, I think that we have too much on our plates, diverting our attention from where our priorities need to be.

What a recipe for exhaustion, anxiety, and Godlessness! Who ever said that the enemy wasn't creative?

I honestly don't know what else to say. My brain just wants to go on hiatus for a little while...

Maybe it is just the fall season. Spring and summer lend themselves to so much excitement and activity. Fall and winter just seem more the time to slow down, curl up with a good book, or take a nap. Speaking of sleep, I can't believe I fell asleep at the end of Biggest Loser last night!

We did make another change to our nighttime routine, though, much to the chagrin of our puppies. We locked the gate. We don't care if they are on our bed any other time, but we sleep so much better if we have all our room. So, they sleep downstairs on the couch with no temptation to climb the steps. Then, in the mornings when we get up, they enjoy a little time to sprawl out. :o)




I haven't lost any more weight recently. I have been able to maintain, though. I really need to ramp up my motivation to reach that last little bit of this goal. Like with everything else in life, I think I am just tired.

Well, I guess that's it for now. Does anybody else feel the need to do some unpacking?

Totally agree with you on this! And I love the picture of your sweet doggies! Makes me want to go take a nap...maybe w/my sweet doggie. :)

Our dogs do that too! They aren't allowed to sleep with us, but as soon as they get up in the morning they take over the bed. A brain hiatus sounds good...

I will be doing some unpacking on Friday myself. You have still done such an amazing job on your weight loss even if you aren't losing...you are maintaining! We need our space in bed and even when A comes to get in bed with us 20 minutes before we are ready to get up, it just seems so crowded.

How precious do they look on that bed? lol Too cute!

Congrats on maintaining! That is an accomplishment!

Let your brain rest a while and enjoy some down time.
