Me. That’s who. I need a nap. I’m EXHAUSTED. Although as I’ve pointed out before I live in a constant state of exhausting. I’ve decided it’s normal. It has to be. I don’t do any more than anyone else on this planet (or some people on this planet) and they seem to get through a day without their head crashing to their desk. I blame my blood pressure meds and exercise. I know people, those with kids and such, who do seem to do more than me but I really think it is the physically exercise that kicks me in the bum and makes my body crave 9 hours of sleep. That’s what I need 9. I’m lucky to get 7. That math = tired.
Although I do a lot. Let’s review my last few days.
Friday – 6:15 up to get ready for work. 8:00 -5:00 work. 6:00 home to change. 6:30 to dinner. 8:00 theatre. 10:30 bed & reading. 11:30 ish asleep.
Saturday – 6:00 up to get ready for 5K. 8:30 5K at Santa Anita. 10 Grocery story for meatball things for party. 10:30 Make meatball things. 11:30 Dog park 2:00 NAP & TV TIME!!! (Black Swan on VOD – Horrible movie. Include guilt on watching that much TV instead of going for a bike ride) 6:00 Friends 40th b-day party. 10:30 bed & reading. 11:30 ish asleep.
Sunday – 6:00 up to get ready for 5K. 8:00 5K at Balboa Lake. 10:30 NAP & TV TIME!!! Noon – Hiking with friend and dogs. 3:00 Mr. Ink It (when we “made” the date his response was “ink it” as in “don’t use a pencil we are so on you can be confident and use an ink pen to put that on your calendar) cancelled because he was at a 40th b-day party the night before and was in “no shape” to go out. I controlled my impulse to tell him I too went to a 40th b-day party the night before, woke up and ran a 5K, hiked a mountain, and was still planning to make our date. Instead I just rescheduled. 3:30 TV TIME!!!! 5:00 Get ready for dinner. 6:00 Pick up friend for dinner & dinner. 9:00 TV TIME!!! 10:00 bed to read. 11:00 ish asleep.
Monday – 6:15 up to get ready for work. 8:00 -5:00 work. 6:00 home to change and flop on the sofa vs. taking poor Riggins for a walk. 7:00 off to bar method class. 7:30 – 8:30 bar method class. 9:00 TV TIME!!! 10:00 Book and bed. 11:00 ish asleep.
Tuesday – 6:15 up to get ready for work. 8:00 -5:00 work. 6:00 home to change. 6:30 off to meet Mr. Ink It. 7-8:30 on my best Wendy date behavior (which is more exhausting than anything else I’ve done over the past few days). 9:00 TV TIME!!!! 10:00 book and bed. 11:30 ish (it was a good part of the book) asleep.
I’M SO EXHAUSTED RIGHT NOW. SERIOUSLY. I wish I was one of those people that could be “refreshed” after 4 hours of sleep. But I’m not. I’m just not. What is the chance I can sneak off to my car for a quick nap????
