I'm a sleeper

I got to Toledo yesterday. I laid out for a half hour, and then made the ride. It was 100 degrees when I left, and my right arm was POURING sweat out. It was GROSS!!! I went to a college bible study last night and it was so good. It was about fasting. When you fast, you must seek the Lord. I am going to do this, next week and pray about--jobs, God's will for my life, relationships, and other issues in my life. I got up at 10 AM this morning. UHHH I never sleep PAST 8 ever in my life. I must have needed it. No idea what I am going to do today. I am going to do a workout video today because I FORGOT my running shoes in Sandusky :( :( :(
I am going to the ZOO with my student teaching class tomorrow!! AHH I am SOO excited!! I have to be at the school by 850! AHH I could seriously JUMP for Joy!!! I am so thrilled to see my students again :)

Fasting is a really cool thing. I always feel more spiritually close to my Heavenly Father and better about the choices I make when I fast. Also, those muffins look GREAT. I would like to see Choc rough muffins next =)
