Today has been a pretty good day here. When I got up I left a few extra minutes to use in the kitchen, where I peeled and chopped sweet potatoes and put together a beef stew to cook in the crock pot. It uses beef stew meat, bacon, sweet potatoes and a bunch of spices. It calls for onion but I substituted a little garlic instead because that way my husband will like it. So that will be dinner. Then we went to church, and afterward came home where my son cleaned and vacuumed my car out for Mother's Day! That is sweet and was really needed, so I'm very thankful.
Trying very hard not to take a nap this afternoon. I really want to try to stop napping on the weekends. I love it so much, but I have read that it really throws off your sleeping patterns and makes the following week harder when it is time to get up and go to work, and so I'm putting that to the test to see how true I think it is. I also read that you shouldn't let your getting up time vary too far off the norm on the weekends, so I'm going to try to keep getting up around the same time as usual, although not quite as early, because really there is no need to wake up at 5:15am on Saturday and Sunday. This weekend I woke got up at 7:00 each day, although on both days I started waking up around 5:30 as usual and then just dozed off and on until time to get up. There are many things that I could accomplish in the time when I sleep in on the weekends, so I should just get up and get moving and I'd probably feel better for it. It is very hard though, because napping is such a favorite of mine, especially on the weekends.
Anyway, nothing much else going on around here.
