I feel like I can’t recover from my trip home. I am so tired, and I feel like I can’t get enough sleep. I mean, yesterday, it was all I could do to keep myself awake. I wanted to take a nap so bad, but my daughter was showing no signs of slowing down. So I just had to stick it out.
I feel like it depends on the time, though.
For instance, when I first wake up, I’m exhausted, and all I want to do is sleep. Then, all day, I’m so tired. I find myself struggling to get chores done, and there’s no way I can keep focused on my writing. I lay around, and I do the bare minimum to keep the house running. And I can’t shake it. Like, right now, I feel my eyes drooping. Even after some caffeine, I still find myself wishing for some extra shut eye.
Then, when my husband gets home, I still feel a little groggy, but not as bad. It’s like, as the evening progresses, I get less and less tired, and I have so much trouble falling asleep. I’m sure it’s because I am waking up so late. I am not used to so much sleep, so it makes me stay up later. And I just can’t shut my mind off.
I’m not sure what the deal is. I mean, is it normal to feel like this? Have a lot of people experienced this type of energy level pattern? I just don’t know.
For now, I have some chores I need to get done, and I need to give my daughter a bath so she can be ready for tonight. It’s feeling like such a long day, and nothing is getting done. Time to get off of the computer, and I need to get back to the real world.
… Until later.
