today is a gift

I am so tired today
I woke up at 3AM for some unknown reason
I went for a run hoping it would jump start my mood and energy level
food choices good until around 4 when a few chips and candy snuck into my mouth mindlessly until I realized I was just tired and eating junk to wake up

remember when the party started after 10 pm?

so this is what 50 feels like with a restless night.

tomorrow is a new day I hope I rest better tonight

I have a stupid paper to write to finish off my public health clinical rotation. I am the world's best procrastinator! The paper is all about what I learned about uninsured children's access to medical care in Los Angeles. I enjoyed the rotation and the paper should go fast if I could just make myself start it...like ummm tomorrow!! hahahaha!

I decided to raise money for research for Leukemia and Lymphoma research when I run Los Angeles Marathon in March.
~my Father in law died of Acute Lymphoblastic Lymphoma 2 years ago, then my husband's cousins' infant son was diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia and is being treated at St Jude's in Beirut and the last straw was a friend of my daughter's was just diagnosed with Leukemia and is undergoing bone marrow transplant at UCLA.

Leukemia & Lymphoma Society - National
Our mission is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease, and myeloma and to improve the quality of life for patients and their families.
