Palazzo pants are fantastically comfortable and I have no idea how i lived my life for so long without them. 

 

I want to take this opportunity to give a big thanks to @Mistr for introducing me to this awesome piece of clothing and making my summer life easier. :) 

 

I am glad you are happy with them! It just happens that I am wearing palazzo pants at work right now. My next task to to find them with pockets.

Thrilled with them. 

 

Though I am displeased with the Amazon seller I bought this pair from. They were advertised as "palazzo pants", but since making my previous post about them, I have learned that this style actually is based on traditional Thai fisherman pants, where you tie the front of the pants around your waist, pull them through the legs and tie the back on. This is comfortable, there is a pleasant cool breeze around the legs as I walk, and they look awesome.  But they are not palazzo pants, and I am irritated, as I find this inaccuracy to be disrespectful towards the Thai fishermen who invented this awesome style of pants.

They look good though, don't they? :)

I got these, which are similar but don't tie. I also got a pair of very wide leg elastic waist pants, apparently not from Amazon.  I now have enough comfy summer clothes and need to resist shopping temptation. 

 

Yours look like they would be more resistant to powerful side winds than mine are :D

How goes?

 

Not as good as it should, but not as bad as it could.

 

To summarize: Challenge efforts were unintentionally abandoned, and the lack of sleep applied its usual destructive side-effects to my daily life.

 

I was growing increasingly frustrated with the way sleeping was not working out for me, until, thankfully, I had my monthly video appointment with my therapist Tuesday evening. She asked pointed questions and offered new perspectives, and suggested that one big obstacle to creating my new bedtime routine was that I already had a routine in place and that following my old routine was a lot less effort than creating the new one.

 

It had honestly not occurred to me that I already had a bedtime routine, so we spent some time talking about that, and about the fact that I am still reluctant to spend too much time sleeping, because I think the things I could do instead are more pleasant and important. So I left Tuesday's therapy appointment with lots of things to think about, which I think is ultimately going to be a good thing.

I find it hard to identify what mine is. I mean, I must have one, because I must do something, but it's not something I am conscious of doing in any particular or regular way.

I felt like I could run forever, like I could smell the wind and feel the grass under my feet, and just run forever.

Your therapist sounds useful. And what is more important than adequate sleep? Anything saying it is more important is lying.

She does sound great! Do you feel a little less derailed? 

Did she mention that all those non-sleep things will get a lot more pleasant and/or efficient when you've had enough sleep? x)

Careless phrasing on my part. I should have said "things that seem more important at the time". And yes, she has been very helpful, especially during The Great Kitchen Flood of 2020.

A little bit. Having the weekend off to decompress will help.

She may have said something  about that, maybe. Once or twice.

Darn, those are a deceptive bunch. Trained by the best masters, they are.

Looking forward to see you master sleep prioritization, hope your therapist will be a good sidekick at that.

Living life as a Druid is about walking with the beasts. It's about being scared, looking your fears in the eyes and going on anyway. Dread doesn't go away, you just learn to know it. It's still a beast, it still has fangs, but you walk among it.
