Countdown to Finals

Wow I am tired today!  So if you’ve been around for a while, you might have noticed that I’ve stopped complaining about my sleep and being tired.  That’s because I’ve been sleeping great for the past few months!  I don’t know what changed but I’m happy.  There isn’t less stress or anything and I’m working out less because of school but I’m sleeping.  I’ll take it! 

This only comes up because one of my cats has been howling all freaking night lately (actually only for 2 or 3 hours at a time but it seems like all night!).  I don’t know what is up with him but he really needs to stop.  Ignoring him doesn’t work nor does the squirt bottle.  We play with him during the day, he has other cats to entertain him too, and he has plenty of food and water.  He’s just a pain in the butt!

This weekend was pretty fun after my stomach ache went away.  Yes, it finally stopped hurting!  I tried calling my doctor on Friday but her office was closed.  If it comes back again, I will call her and get it all sorted out, but for now, I’m glad the pain is gone.

Saturday was jam packed with events.  I had a hair appointment with a new stylist, Rob had rugby all day, and Lauren had a birthday party for herself at the bowling alley.  I don’t think I’ve been bowling since high school but it was a lot of fun!  I wouldn’t mind going more often!

The rest of the time was spent whining about my stomach, doing house chores, or working on homework.

I have so much work to do for these last few weeks of school that it looks like I’m abandoning any sort of goal tracking.  It is just too much to do all at one time.  I’m still going to eat healthy (because I like to) and get some workouts in when I have time.  I just won’t stress over every little thing so don’t expect to see any trackers for the rest of the month.  May 1st is my last final so I’ll make new goals for next month!  Now, off to get some work done!

    Yeah!!!! The end is near…keep plugging along…you can do it and then things will settle down (well, as much as things settle for you!!)

    Fun! I never bowled as a kid but went several times around age 24…had a friend who’d love to go drink & bowl. ;p I was never any good and people seem to be VERY good.
