Sleep Debt

Today, I successfully did not leave the house again. I didn’t accomplish much, but I think tomorrow I’ll start working on the paper I have to write. It’s not due for another months, but I think now is a good time. I don’t want it to interfere with my future travel plans, so it’s best to get it out of the way now while I’m home.

I made enough spaghetti for lunch to have fed my entire family of six. It’s hard to break that habit. I froze some of the leftovers (the rest are in the fridge) so I’ll still put it to good use. I’m rebuilding my stores of food. I haven’t been able to keep much in the house lately because I really haven’t been here. It feels good to eat in again. Having to go out for food all the time is one of the more tiring things about traveling, I think. It’s a great way to experience a culture, but it’s also expensive and it can start to feel like a chore.

I have never slept as much as this. It is a little embarrassing. Normally, I hate spending time indoors and not being productive… but right now, it still feels refreshing. Tomorrow I think I might start to ease back into it and get some things done around the house. Work on that paper. We’ll see what happens.

  1. You do what you’ve got to do. Rest and refresh. We Americans could stand to prioritize rest a little more than we do.

  2. I just got back from a whirlwind trip to Arizona and am exhausted. Cannot imagine how you go so hard. Ditto Tatie’s note!
