Feeling Awful, But Pushing Forward.
Wednesday, July 17, 2019
I feel awful. It started on Sunday, last day of vacation, I didn't hardly sleep, I felt like I would fall asleep at any moment, but could not because we were in the car. And my MIL had to take a detour and stop at every waterfall along the way. I had to tell her I was not hiking, I felt horrible and had no energy. I have this sleep thing, even in the military, I never learned the knack of sleeping sitting up. I can't sleep, unless drugged, in any position other than laying down (and even then it is iffy). I've felt like I was mid-flu with a bad hang-over since we got home.
I had such big plans for starting my routines and getting things ready for school to wind up and all that... but instead, I can barely stay awake and am craving sweets so bad! I am going to cut out all sugar and just deal with the withdrawals. I've got an appointment that I made while on vacation for other things, and then this crops up. Oh fun. At least I'll see the doc tomorrow.
I'm planning on doing what I can starting tonight to get myself and the kids to working on our routines and getting into what will help things work better around the house. And I'll start on getting the house ready for guests soon. I'll have to have the kids help a lot until I'm feeling better. They are not going to be happy with that because the last few days they have just been on their behinds playing games and watching TV.
I know I gained weight on vacation. I had fudge. I had things I have not had in a year. Things I said I would not have again. I don't know what about vacation made me feel like I could get away with it. But I did. And now I need to recover.
With that said. I've got to come up with a meager meal plan for the next week and a half, too much was spent on vacation, but the kids had a grand time.
Pictures still to come, I'll try to get them on the computer tomorrow if I can get the energy to get back to it.
Have a great Wednesday!
