Just Some Sentences

Sleep is still not going well for me. Last night, I woke up pretty much every hour on the hour from midnight on. Took a nap this afternoon. Hope that doesn't mean I won't sleep at all tonight.

I lost almost half a pound this week. I just need to stay out of the candy (see above).

That's about all I can think of. Until next time,
