I've been fighting a cold for the last couple of days, so I decided to allow myself to sleep in and rest yesterday. Believe it or not, that is a HUGE deal for me because I'm one of those people that love to be busy busy all.the.time. Resting is not productive in my book, so I almost never allow myself to rest.

However, yesterday I slept in until 11:00 a.m. and then also took a two hour nap in the afternoon. And you know what? I felt fantastic today! I woke up on time this morning (for a change) and felt pretty energetic throughout the day. I guess it IS important to sleep 8 hours a day.

PS: I'm writing this post at 12:42 a.m.... oh dear, I guess I'm not getting my 8 hours sleep today! LOL

How many hours a day do you sleep?

Here are all the ways in which I've worn this skirt:

  7. Marie, I am so glad that you're feeling better. I've been feeling a bit off for the past few days, but it's because of the temperature change and I wish I had more time off so I could rest. As much as I love being busy, I also like doing nothing at all! :)

    LOVE the skirt, dear. it's so colorfully you!

  8. I love being able to sleep in. I'm terrible about going to bed on time, but I know it feels SO much better to get the right amount of sleep. I also get insomnia sometimes, power naps are always a good idea. Good for you for letting yourself rest.
