Spring break + extra kiddos = a very messed up sleep schedule. It's taking its toll on all of us. I made Ellie take a nap one of the mornings because she was so tired she had a meltdown because her pancakes wouldn't stay on her fork. It took less than a minute after she crawled into my bed at 10 am for her to fall asleep. Deep breathing kind of asleep.
When I'm worried about or interested in something, I read everything I can to find out and learn more about that thing. A few races ago, I wanted to find out how my sleep was affecting my running. This http://runnersconnect.net/running-training-articles/running-on-no-sleep/ is one great article that helped calm my fears about lack of sleep the night before a race but also reminded me that lack of sleep over time can be very detrimental to my training and my life in general. My family can also testify to the affect it has on my life when I'm not getting enough sleep.
So I'll try to make sure I step off the plane in Boston well-rested.
No matter how sleep deprived I get though, I can always find the humor in some things. Like these...
Bathing suit season is quickly approaching. Sigh.
