What does my biorhythm say today?

Wow, I am so exhausted.

This morning I slept in until 8:30. I felt pretty groggy, but I made my green smoothy, and while I was at it, drank about 12 oz of Mt. Dew. I took a shower, did my hair, cleaned the top freezer and even brought up a cookie sheet of frozen bananas to transfer to a zip lock baggie.

I sat down in front of the heater about noon to get warm and read a magazine. Next thing I knew, I awoke on the floor (on my stomach, feet pointed at the heater, head on arm, magazine I was reading spread out, my eyeglasses neatly folded on the floor beside me) to a growling sound, like a dog, which turned into the neighbor's chain saw. The last time I looked at the clock, it was noon, now it is about 40 minutes later. The cookie sheet of bananas was still on the counter, bananas were thawed.

What's with this? I looked up my biorhythm, to see what was up. I don't check this daily, just when I am feeling pretty lousy. But I cannot even use that as an excuse. Three out of the 6, physical, emotional and passion are at the very top today. Just the intellectual is on the floor. Mastery and wisdom are in the middle.

This is very unusual of me to take a nap in the middle of the day, in the middle of the floor! We went to bed last night at a really decent hour, so that is not why. I haven't been exercising lately, or I would blame it on my early rise and my 5 mile run, but that isn't the case either. My consistency and persistence is not working lately. I have been sick for at least 3 weeks with a deep cough, probably a virus, but it is really almost out of my system. For some reason my body just shut down today, right in the middle of the day, in the middle of the floor! I barely remember making that decision to lie down. Usually I make it to my bed because I don't sleep very well on the floor.

I feel a bit better after that 40 minute nap. How strange? What was in that smoothy? Nothing new: bananas, strawberries, dandelion greens, carrots, protein powder and blueberries. That should have given me great amounts of energy. I just don't know. This is how I acted when I was pregnant, but that's not the case either. That has been shut down for at least 10 years. Sympathy sleepies for my daughters who are new mothers? I just don't know. It's one of those mysteries that will probably never be solved, I guess. So I better get off my duff and get something accomplished. As my choir director always says: Onward and Upward.

Hope your day is going very well.

Hi Friend, wow, that is kind of weird.... if I had been explaining the powerplant in detail ,maybe it wouldn't have been surprising. Well I hope you had a good nap, and I am all for an early night tonight. Love you much.

That is borderline scary Annie… Really, it IS scary! it is like a gentle black out, as somewhere in there you folded your glasses and lay down. Something short circuited… I do not like it one bit… I hope you figure this thing out, it just does not sound right to me!

actually I do remember, I was sitting and decided I would be warmer reading on the floor with my feet on the heater, but I just fell asleep there. Reading always lulls me to sleep. But I was really REALLY tired with NO reason why. This afternoon I rode my bike around the section. I stopped and visited four of my friends and I did it all in an hour and a half. I really need exercise.

Maybe you were just having an off day? Was it the weather maybe? Very interesting no matter. Hopefully today was much better!

Ummmm, with all that you do? I'd be taking a nap every single day.

Personally, I think naps are a gift from the heavens above. I love my Sunday naps. It started before I was a heathen and quit going to church- I'd have a nap after church every Sunday. Now I just have a nap. Sometimes I'll get up really early on Sunday so I'll enjoy my nap even more.

I'm a silly wabbit.
