December 27,2021 Later that day
My affair with sleep has never been long enough. I wonder what it would be like to just have a normal life where I could sleep a whole eight hours a night. That is not me unless I am medicated, and medication just makes me groggy, so I do without sleep. This new routine is different for me. I am used to waking up at 3 or 4 in the morning, not going to bed at those times, but that is where I am now. I did not work today but I did visit the library and I totally forgot my card. I left it in the car and of course the librarian made me go get it. Is this a thing? I mean, four out of five people could not possibly spell my first name without looking at something. What are the chances that someone is going to go into the local library and impersonate me in order to check out a book? Could this happen? I mean, do people do this and if so, why? I guess they could sell the book on amazon or something and make out with a few dollars in pocket change to buy a taco from the local taco bell.
Today, I realized that I have two people in my life that are aggravating me, and I am unsure why this aggravation is coming on but both parties are extreme in their strictness of rule abiding. It is not like I am a huge rule breaker. I follow them 99.9% of the time and it normally would not aggravate me for the librarian to ask me to go get my card but today it did not go over well. I did it but I was not happy about it and I did not check out another seven-day limited book. Nor did I challenge the librarian about what would happen.
I ran today on the trails that I used to ride my bike on, and I am so pleased to announce that I have found my new spot for knocking out the 3.1 Running on these trails are so challenging and exciting. I felt like I was flying but I was still running at 10-minute miles, which is okay. I received my first pair of yoga/running pants today from the amazon store! They were not exactly what I was expecting but I love the color and the way they fit but I was wanting something with more of a liner for the colder days, but they will do just fine! You can find them here and I have to say out of all my yoga/running pants I love these the most. I have one other pair of this brand and I have had them for two years now and they still fit the same way, the waist is still in shape, and I do not feel like a gangster yoga teacher/runner. I like running in these because after the holiday weight expansion, I do not feel like I am flapping all over the place.
The day was boring, and I did not really accomplish much. I did start a challenge (five day) to kick off the new year. The first part of the challenge is to create a theme for 2022, so far, the only thing I have thought of is “out of the darkness”. Which is a pretty good one for me, it just does not seem all to positive. I want to stay away from darkness, sadness, grief, longing this year. “Light, laugh and love” feels like something you would hang on your wall in the south. I will think more on it and decide.
