I think it's good I decided to take today off. I went out to a play with Noelle last night and didn't get home until about 11:45pm. Falling asleep didn't prove to be too difficult, as I was already feeling somewhat sleep deprived and exhausted. In fact, sleep came so easily but leaving it was the hard part - I overslept until 8am!!
It's one thing to wake up from a nice 8 hour rest feeling fresh and ready to go. However, I had somewhat of a nightmare, so I woke up feeling groggy and out of sorts.
In the dream, it was the day of the Lake Berryessa swim. I (coincidentally) overslept a little, but was already at my mom's house in Napa, so I wasn't too worried. For some reason, however, I kept piddling around and realized that it took longer to get there than I had planned, and that by the time I made it up to the lake and found parking (it's a pretty big event), I would never have time to check in and make the 10am start time. So I missed the 2-mile swim, and then for some reason that I can't remember, ended up not making the entire thing. I felt so upset! I had missed both swims, missed out on the fantastically fun BBQ that my teammates were enjoying, and was out $40. Then I woke up.
Talk about taking it all too seriously. Lighten up, Sarah! I think I'll go on a walk this evening...
Ciao for now!
