No Nap Needed

Energy begets energy! As I settled in for a nap this afternoon, I realized I had not felt the need for one all week. I credit this fact to my new volunteer work, on Tuesday and Thursday, and a surprisingly drama free outing with my mother on Wednesday. After work, I used the energy I had doing things that were recharging and enjoyable. I did not spended the time continuing to work. That makes a difference. I have a mountain of papers to grade this weekend, but I have the three day weekend to get through it.

What comes next is finding a way to use my time in a balanced, effective way.


  1. I too have a mountain of papers to grade. The semester ends on The 26! However, I spent Saturday knitting and today visiting with my in-laws. The papers can wait. I needed to recharge! Work will always be there. I take a nap most weekends! It is one of my guilty pleasures. I'm glad you didn't have Mama drama! I have sister drama. It is draining. Take care of yourself, and you will be better at everything you do!

  2. I love your blog and all the Mini-Challenges! I'm in school now as a 50+ year old student.
