After my whirlwind trip down to my nephew's wedding and back, I am exhausted. Last night I was so low on sugar (I hadn't eaten supper), water and energy that I broke down crying once I was home. A dinner of a couple of fried eggs and lots of water with electrolytes did help me feel better. I went to bed at a decent hour and found that I could not get out of bed this morning. I tried at 8 hours. Nope. My body just wasn't going to do it. I tried at 9 hours. Finally after 10 hours in bed I was able to drag myself out of bed - barely.
I am very fortunate. My wonderfully independent and capable 11 year old made us french toast this morning. It helped to have some food all ready to eat!
Today is going to be challenge to try and rest and yet work on my to-do list. I MUST work on the lessons I'm teaching at camp in three weeks. I'm hoping that later I can take myself down to the library with my laptop and can just sit and work quietly on them.
My adrenals are a huge problem for me. This summer was a stretch with two different weddings so far away. Then my dh wants to go on a family vacation in a week - more travel, though he promises a leisurely pace and he will be the one driving. To be honest, I'm dreading it. We're staying with his cousin who is very nice but is one of those terribly busy people who bullies you into doing things her way because she honestly thinks it's for your own good. Once we get back from the family vacation we have a week off and then we go to family camp where I'm one of the teachers. I will be teaching 9 lessons and while I absolutely love it, it is exhausting.
