The only thing I can equate this lethargy with is being pregnant....but I'm not pregnant, so I'm attributing it to needing a vacation.
Last week was an emotional one...BIG TIME. I had a blog written about it, but swapped it over to a journal entry instead...but trust me, between running around with the kids, the extracurriculars, the planning, the emails, the homework, the shuffling of bodies from place to place...I am pooped.
So staring at me this Monday is this (on highest to lowest levels of priority) are:
- change battery in fire detector because it is beeping - sure, a simple task you think...BUT I have to call ADT to go off line, then get a ladder, then open the thing up, then go GET a new battery because GOD FORBID it's a normal one I'd have in the house,...the reverse the whole thing so I'm back to it NOT chirping at me every 10 seconds.
-prep for the den meeting I am having tonight for scouts
- food store....evidently my shopping trip to the store on Friday was a complete bust because we are out of eggs...and green things...and wheat bread for the kid's sandwiches for school.
- the office supply store...ink is kinda important
- the office to do the monthly billing (you'd think that'd take higher priority, but I can bang it out tomorrow too)
HOWEVER....I am beat. Tired. Pooped. Tuckered out. Drained. Seriously in need of a vacation...I want to do absolutely NONE of the above.
HERE is how tired I was yesterday: slept late until 9am!!!! Me and the hubby...both of us..in bed, passed out...until 9am when the kids got us up to feed them. We felt like we were in a twilight zone episode. We have not slept past 7am in the last 13...yes, THIRTEEN...13 years...yes...YEARS!!
After that - we are 2 hours off-kilter...and then at my sister in laws house.....I took a nap while everyone was watching the football game around me!!! And I NEVER EVER EVER EVER have done that...in all of 16 years of knowing these people....I have NEVER fallen into nap mode....even when I WAS pregnant!
So...as you can see...i'm sitting here blogging and listening to the chirping fire detector and the temptation to go back to bed is HUGE...and I just might.
Maybe I'm fighting off a cold. Very possible.
Maybe I'm just tired of the constant running around. VERY very possible.
Should I be SELFISH and actually go back to bed for a bit...since it is my "day off" and all...oh, I am seriously leaning toward that. My nice warm and soft flannel sheets...my quiet house all around me. It's sounding better and better the more I think about it.
Will everything else get done today...yup, it will....because I am me and I get stuff done....all the time. Guaranteed. Absolutely...positiviely..if I say so, it gets done. That's me. The go-to girl.
but right now...I think I will take an hour to take a nap...a little one...and then, hopefully, I will feel refreshed enough to get on the treadmill like I wanted to do this morning. I know THAT wil give me some energy....for sure!
