Crash and Burn

June 08, 2006

The stress and toil of the past few months has finally caught up with me. I’ve been constantly tired for weeks now and last evening I just couldn’t bring myself to do anything. I was planning on attending the Wednesday evening kendo-in-the-park practice, but with an outside temperature in the low 90s I decided to pass and stayed home (and cool) instead.

By 7:15 I was getting sleepy and so I went and laid on the bed and read for a while. By 8:30 I had turned my light out and was sound asleep. It was still light outside. I must have needed a good night’s sleep as I didn’t wake at all until 5:00 this morning - almost nine hours of sleep. I feel much better this morning and I am planning on turning in early again this evening.

Like Ben Franklin said, “early to bed, early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise.”
