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!
