Twenty-five! This is crazy. I might just make it after all (like Mary Tyler Moore*).
Lazy hair and makeup today. I’ve had to drag myself out of bed recently, despite getting over seven hours of sleep each night. I remember doing an experiment in high school to see how much sleep I really require. I think it was something like nine hours and fifteen minutes to feel fully replenished. Maybe I need to start hitting the sack at 9:00!
I want to sing the praises of this belt for a moment, if I may. When I reached for it this morning, I thought, “Oh, belt. You are so versatile and hardworking.” This belt was bought at American Eagle on clearance for $6.99 a few years ago. (I only remember that because the markdown tag is still on the inside!) It’s braided leather, and I like to wear it both around my natural waist and as an actual functioning belt. You know, one that goes through beltloops and holds up pants. (Sometimes I have to remind myself of the original intent of belts, because I hardly ever wear them for their actual functional purposes.) But anyway, I like this belt because it feels like me. You know when you find a piece that just suits you? This belt is one of those pieces for me.

*Okay, so I just found out that you can watch episodes of the Mary Tyler Moore Show online for free. So that may or may not be how I choose to spend some of my free time these next few days.
God has blessed me by giving me work to do!
