Saturday morning, I was up earlier than normal.
Why? Well, since I had a rather boring Friday evening, alone at home, I had gone to bed earlier than normal. Consequently, I was awake earlier than normal, as well.
For a while, I read and spent some time on Facebook (FB), chatting with a friend. When I realized the time, I hightailed it offline and set off for the YMCA/YWCA (Y), where I go to exercise in the pool, as you would know if you were a regular reader of Life with Lynnie (LwL).
Well, I must say I paid the price for rushing out of my apartment.
Arriving at the Y, I made my way to the change room. Wanting to change into my bathing suit, I realized I had done something I had never done, before.
I had left my bathing suit, etc. at home. :( Groan! Sigh...
Oh, I had my bag with me; but, when I opened it up, there was only personal cleanliness items. No bathing suit, no bathing cap, no towels.
I couldn't believe I had done that!
Hopefully, my forgetfulness was due to rushing out the door, and not to some physiological condition. Well, since I am in my 50's, I cannot say that it is due to being elderly and forgetful. lol
In any case, I left the Y as quickly as I arrived there, feeling rather embarassed and disappointed.
Knowing that I had driven across town to get there, I decided to not return again, later. Besides, if I had done so, I would have been exercising in the midst of a group learning to swim, by the time I finished my exercise regimen. Not something I like doing.
Looking at the clock, and realizing it was still rather early, I decided that since I was feeling exhausted after experiencing a rather stressful week, both physically and emotionally, that I would go back to bed and do something I hadn't done in a very long time. Sleep in.
I thought about setting my alarm clock, but quickly decided to just sleep and let my body decide when I would awaken. Hmmm... well, let's just say that I slept the morning away! :( or :) depending upon how one looks at this!
In the afternoon, I did some chores around my home and settled down to relax, read and watch travel shows. Once again, I found my eyes drooping while I sat reclined in my chair.
One thing I realized through all of Saturday, was that I was truly exhausted. God must have known I needed rest, for it seemed that it was practically all I did!
With Saturday evening being another rather lonely and boring time, I decided to once again hit the hay, early. No trouble sleeping that night, for this gal!
I felt much better, after all this rest. Praise God! Thank You, Jesus!
Until next time...
