I have a 76 sleep score average.  My highest was 86.  That was a good night. 

And it's a Bragging On Something I Have Absolutely No Control Over Booyah!

It might only be for people who have the stages of sleep which is only available on more expensive fitbits. They might be trying to sell you on a new product. I don't really care. I know what kind of sleep I need and I know whether or not I get it. I don't need your help, thank you very much.

I have an Inspire without the HR.  Cheapest one I could find that was waterproof.   Needed that since I basically spend half my day washing dishes.

I need to make a body for forensics.  I have a head already, I think I'm going to follow online directions to make one out of duct tape.   Wish me luck.

I think you need HR to measure stages. I have the Alta HR which is one step up from yours. It wouldn't surprise me if they Incorporated sleep into challenges so that people were encouraged to spend more money.

It's a foam mannequin head, like for wigs.   I used it for last years forensics class with some clothes to make a body but I need something I don't have to build every time.

Everyone has what I'm already considering. I'm getting an Inspire HR. I ordered one through Amazon (for some reason, Fitbit website no longer likes my address and I don't want to call), but then cancelled because I realized the seller wouldn't be covered by the Fitbit guarantee. So, I need to order another one from an approved seller on Amazon, so thought I'd ask what ya'll had.

I would love to have your job Krissi.

Did you need a teaching credential to get hired?

I have to say, it’s a pretty cushie job. I do work hard, though. There’s a lot to do, tons of paperwork, deadlines to meet, and a lot of people to deal with, but I do most of it from home on my laptop (I got a ton done at this hospital this weekend 😂👍) and I do still get to homeschool the girls. I am very thankful for it.   I did need a teaching credential. And I think the fact that I have a Master’s in Education helped me out a lot, too.  The state of California (under pressure from  the teachers union) is coming down hard on Charter Schools. Mine is doing a good job at staying ahead of the game.

I'm in the odd circumstance of having an MEd degree but no teaching certification. 

We have somewhat similar charter schools here. I don't really have time for even a mostly at-home job right now but it's something I've thought about for the future.

So I don't have a fitbit to track my sleep, but I do dream a lot.  I hope dreaming is an indication of good sleep.  :)

This afternoon I dreamt that Orlando Bloom was giving me a manicure and insisting on using a blue nail polish to match the curtains in the room.  Oprah was also in the dream.  And the Obamas.  And somewhere along the way I was cooking dinner and it wasn't going well.  I was in a panic because a journalist was on her way to my house to interview me because I was running for Senate.  

Shortly after I woke up, dh called and asked me a question that required me to make a decision.  :svengo:

I swam in the sea. I regret it. I'm annoyed by the propensity to throw people under buses instead of offering grace and kindness, and God forbid, understanding. It wasn't everyone behaving like that, but enough to make me exclaim aloud, "Seriously, people? That wasn't even what she said!" I didn't reply, though. I retreated. I'm sticking with you guys, and hanging up my swim suit.

I am folding laundry whilst watching a not-very-good rom/com on Prime. The question is, do I quit it and watch something else i’ve Watched a million times, but like? Or do I just keep watching because..... who knows why.

And I broke a nail. So I had to trim all the other ones so I don’t look weird.

And I have an eye-twitch.

And I have no idea what to make for dinner.

I Had a brief moment of hope that you’d somehow managed to get ahold of Haydn’s head, but I’m sure there’s much less liability dealing with foam.

Chicken pot pie. I am in the mood for chicken pot pie. That’s what’s for dinner.

 

And Krissi is craving something. 

For sure there is a pregnancy underfoot. Or under book, as the case is...

We're spanning three states here with the pregnancy symptoms, so there has to be a second person...(it isn't me. I think it's Slash).

Italian-seasoned chicken bites

steamed broccoli

roasted grape tomatoes

corn on the cob

mandarin oranges with dark chocolate chips

Do you ever sit on the couch on your computer knowing you really should get up and go to bed but you're almost too tired and it's easier to just sit there and keep surfing or reading than to get up the energy to get up and get ready for bed even though you're really tired and know you need to get to sleep?

We had a creamy pesto and butter bean sauce over pasta, a big clear-out-some-space-in-the-fridge salad, heirloom tomatoes with cottage cheese, and dh's homemade oatmeal raisin cookies for dessert.

Day #2 of school and we did all the things again <shock!>. Dd7's precious elderly Gal Pal from church took her out for chocolate ice cream and then we all went to the farm. Tomato season is over.  😥  But I think I froze almost 3 dozen quarts of tomato sauce, so we will enjoy a little taste of them all winter long. And even though the nights are quite cool, littlest duckling helped me cut flowers and I still collected enough zinnias and Black-eyed Susans and lavender and ageratum and bachelor's buttons to fill four happy vases.  And the ducklings sucked on honey sticks that the honeybee lady gave them and everyone played on Bob the tractor and we remembered to get more milk and we brought home ten feet caked in dirt.  We still have 6 more weeks of produce, but I am so very sad to say goodbye to another summer.  

Wish all this sentimentality means I am the pregnant one, but alas, no.

That’s why you need to get ready for bed before you sit down. Wash your face, brush your teeth, put on your jammies and then sit down. That way, when you are that tired, all you have to do is stagger off to bed.

Not that I have any experience with this.....

I have to run to the AFSA this morning before class.  I should still have time to do my yoga (I managed yesterday despite having to run back home for my phone after I was all the way to the science center).    I'm still not 100% sure what I'm going to do with my youngest class today.  The last two days those classes were super duper extreme messy.  Not sure I want to do the same activities.  I actually did a slightly different one with each class thinking the second one would be less messy but it didn't turn out to be so.  I have not quite as messy plans and materials, I just have to decide on something.

I'm going to start training for my virtual walk/run today.   I'm going to start with about a mile each way.   What is average walking speed?  I'm trying to judge how long this should take me.  I tend to walk fast but if I estimate average walking speed that will give me some lee-way.

training not trying, well that too but...

It is 4:18 and I am absolutely failing sleep tonight. Or this morning. Whatever.

I am in such pain. I took pain meds a couple of hours ago. Didn’t work. And I turned off the a/c because I was cold even with blankets and that makes me tense up, making everything worse. I am so tired that it’s hard to see straight but my stupid muscles won’t relax enough to sleep. 

Tomorrow- I mean today- I need to suck it ip, do my Lamaze breathing and start up my morning exercises again. And I need to get into the chiropractor ASAP to be put back together again. (As an aside, I have used my Lamaze breathing more for getting through everyday life than I ever did for labor and delivery. )

So, since most of you seem to be still sleeping, I googled average walking speed.   It's 3.1 miles per hour.   A 5k translates to 3.1 miles.  Coincidence?

I'm awake now!  On the treadmill, I typically walk at 3.7 and increase to 4.7 for spurts of jogging.  When I walk outside, I try to keep that same pace, but walk a bit longer just in case I am slower.

I never clocked my walking speed. Depends on whether I am in a hurry to get in before the sun and the heat gets me, or enjoying myself in the cloudy coolness of a fall day with rain. 

I've been swamped by flood dreams for a month, mostly all flooded rivers. It's understandable. I've been sitting on a volcano's worth of emotions and trying to sort through them before I've had a chance to yell, stamp around, and actually experience them. Been on the brink of tears for probably two weeks, and yet have not cried. I'm a little too used to having to hold everything together. Yesterday was a good day, but I still feel like there's a huge weight on my back that won't go away. Not pregnant, though.🤣

Going to the doctor shortly. They aren't going to do anesthesia today.
