My son left his backpack at church Thursday night, so Friday morning (yesterday!) my husband went to church/work early, brought the backpack home and picked up my son and delivered him to his campus.
I slept in.
But then at the last minute, I decided to hike for 30 minutes before work.
At 2:30 PM I finished working and drove back to the trails to walk another 45 minutes. That’s when I saw the footprints and mountain bike tread patterns had been erased by rainfall. Only a couple sets of prints remained.
The thing is, I was at home from 10:30 AM to 2:30 PM. The trail is just three minutes from my house. I never heard or saw any rainfall. Did a cloudburst occur only over the trail system? This is a mystery.
My sleep lately has been terrible. I’ve been averaging 7 hours of sleep a night, but that includes couple of hour-long naps. Twice I’ve slept only six hours a night this past week.
So I was looking forward to catching up on sleep this morning. For that reason, a text message jangled me awake at 7:52 AM. That message was followed up by at least three more messages before 8:30 AM.
I did go back to sleep, but . . . yawn. Why can’t I sleep more than three hours at a stretch? (I track my sleep with a Fitbit and literally, I never sleep more than three solid hours at a time.)
I blame old age and those bright-eyed early Saturday morning people who don’t work until midnight on Fridays.
