Sleep is Overrated!

When I list off all that I do (full-time substitute teacher, part-time nursery worker at the YMCA, own a home-based craft business, graduate student, and mom of five kids), I usually end it with, "Sleep is overrated!"

Last night I worked on a paper for school until after midnight.  I got to sleep around 1:00 am and awake by 6:00 am.

I am tired!

Thankfully I am a substitute teacher, so I was able to stay home today.  Although I have a long to-do list, "take a nap" needs to be a priority.  I might even make it a morning nap instead of the typical afternoon nap.  Looking at my afternoon schedule (lunch, pick up college student, pick up public school kids), I don't think a nap would be possible.

Of course stress on the body can mess with my glucose levels.  Lack of sleep can become a cause of such stress.  So by taking a nap, I'm actually practicing good diabetes management, right?

Yeah, let's go with that!  Sweet dreams!
