A day of planning and mixed results

I went to bed last night rather early - about 9, and I'm sure I fell asleep soon after 9:30. Woke up at 4:30am. I didn't feel to tired, but I didn't want to get up at 4:30, as that would mean I would want to go to bed tonight around 8pm, and that's too early. I happened to wake up due to the dream I was having. I was in my second apartment in Ohio, and opened my bedroom closet to find three cats sitting on my suitcase. One looked like the adult version of my first cat, the second looked like the kitten version of my first cat, and the third looked like a kitten version of my third cat, who now lives with my parents. I wondered how I hadn't noticed them before, and saw they had a litter box next to them. I wondered why I hadn't smelled that, either, as it looked it needed to be cleaned. They were calm while I talked to them, apologizing for not noticing them as I moved things around to pull out the litter box and clean it out. I had no idea what they would have been eating, as I don't leave food out, and they didn't look malnourished. But, like dreams usually go, I woke up before I got any answers. Also, before I got to pet the cats. Boo.

I managed to quiet my brain by playing another guided meditation - the woman who records them has a very calming voice. I fell back asleep around 5, and woke up at 6:30. Spurred on by the fact that I did fall asleep again, I tried one more time to fall asleep, and was successful, waking up at just after 7:30. I'm sure I got a good amount of sleep, and I feel good today.

I felt like reading and relaxing, so that is what I did most of the day. I wasn't wasting the entire day, though. I got the mail, put dishes in the dishwasher, took out the trash, went to the gym and planned next week. I'll be doing the new Strong Curves workout next week, and don't have much planned on the social calendar. It'll be nice to focus on reading, writing, and the gym.
