This trip has been long and fraught with things that drain my energy!
First of all, I'm eating too much. Every time I turn the corner, I am eating like there is no tomorrow. A good bit of it has been with other people, and they have expected it of me. But there have been times when it was just me.
Jet lag always kicks my butt. However, this trip, I've had so many drains on my time, that I'm not getting to bed early (even though I'm tired), and still waking up a lot through the night and then getting up early. Ugh. But to make matters oh so much worse, I had a triple whammy (that should only have been a double)!
So, Saturday night rolls around. Daylight Savings is about to kick me in the pants. In addition, I'm flying out in the morning from MST to CST, which means I'll lose yet another hour - not to mention the fact that I have to get up early for the flight.
So, there's the double - already a triple, really, as I didn't include an early start in the original calculations. Anyway, my phone didn't switch time zones... I had to manually update it. That's fine. So, I figure that it won't automatically update to Daylight Savings, and set it forward myself. Just to be on the safe side, I set it to only do manual changes in time and date. Surprise!!! That doesn't work. But you know that if I hadn't set it forward myself, it wouldn't have done it, and I would have missed my flight.
So, I realized what happened and tried to go back to sleep. But like that was going to happen! I'm exhausted.
And every time I've thought I was going to have a meal to myself, someone has clamored for my time, so I've had to go out to eat with people. That's great in theory, but I end up overeating as we chat. And the scant few times I've been left to my own devices, I haven't fared very well, either. Part of that problem yesterday and today is that there aren't any small options where I am... it is a tourist area that basically has only sit down meals - even at the stupid food court in the mall! Where's Taco Bell when you need one???
I won't even get into the mental drains, as I'm just simply too tired to recount them right now. But, suffice it to say, they are many! Can't wait to get home Friday!
