Last night, I was finally able to sleep without the radio. I did great until around 3am when I woke up for some reason and couldn’t get back to sleep easily. I’ve been to do my old techniques of relaxing and meditation to clear the thoughts from my mind long enough to get back to sleep, but it’s so hard to let go of some of those images and thoughts.

However, this morning the view from my window was wonderful. The clouds had filled to valley to the point that the peaks of the hills across the valley looked like islands floating on an ocean. As I did my yoga, the clouds creeped up the hill and now the house is cloaked in clouds.

Today, I’m going to go to the store to get stuff to make more sandwich mix and also stirfry. I need to make something that I can take with me to rehearsals. I’ve got to start eating more or I’m going to get sick, or worse my body will think I’m trying to do something stupid like go on a starvation diet. I need to make sure that I have food to use since I’m doing so much activity.

When I went to Nature’s, I got a some green tea extract, a bottle of my old multi-vitamins, and a bottle of flax seed oil. I’ve been taking the green tea and multi-vitamins each day because I realize I’ve not been doing good at keeping my body nourished. I’ve been trying to use the flax seed oil instead of butter on bread, but I was twarted by the fact that Toby ate all my good bread the other day when he was home from school. I do have some in the freezer, but I haven’t taken it out yet. Anyhow, it was a half-loaf of my good bread that was left and it went away in one day. I’ll just chalk it up as a sacrifice to the burgeoning teen spirit.
