Why am I tired?

I really shouldn't be. Today was one of those blah kind of days. I had to go run errands this morning, and stupidly forgot what I actually went to the store for. But, being hungry, came home with lots of other goodies. Just not the bread I actually needed. On the plus side, I resisted buying any more clothes. I did get a new alarm clock. Mine has quit working. This morning it was going for 25 minutes when I woke up on my own. It is radio only, and you only get sound sometimes when you have your hand on it so it acts like a giant antena. Usually the static sound is enough to wake me up. But this morning was dead silence until I touched it. I have finally gotten sick of not being sure if I will hear it at all, so I bought a new one. I like the idea of the projecting the time onto the wall. So I got one of those. $16.00 seemed like a great deal for an alarm clock that actually goes off so I can hear it, and with projected numbers big enough for me to see at night.

But the rest of my day was dismally unproductive. I pretty much sat and watched and watched Trading Spaces on DVD and did something on the computer. I don't even know what. I did get the living room somewhat straightened. Or at least the kids did. I didn't make it to the gym, or even work out at home, I wonder if that is why I have no energy today. I should be over the moon. Mark was back on swing shifts today, so we got to see him for more than 20 minutes, I got to run to the store for an alarm clock without the kids, and Mark got off 3 hours early and was home to help get kids in bed, although that was at 9:15 instead of 7:30. I was just having issues today, and couldn't seem to get things together. All I want to do is go to bed, sleep 10 hours, and wake up with absolutely no responsibilities, housework, buses to catch, people to bring things to. I just want to sit and stare at the tv and let Mark deal with everything. I can't even bring myself to care about the house enough to sweep and mop, even though the floor hasn't gotten cleaned in almost a month. Swept, but not really cleaned. My rear actually hurts from sitting so much today and yesterday. I am not used to it.

Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day, and I will be out of the humdrums, or whatever this is.

Sorry to hear that your day was so blah. I hope things pick up for you tomorrow. The exercise certainly could be part of that, since you get a natural high off of working out.

I've certainly had those days--

maybe as a pick-me-up it would lighten your day if I told you that reading about your watching Trading Spaces made me flash back to the VERY FIRST time I EVER saw that show--which just so happened to be in your hospital room while you were in labor with Oren. :) Oh how funny our memories can be....

Better luck today?!

Cheer up! You're doing so great at everything (any mom of three toddlers HAS to do great) and things have to be better...you know, just *decide* to have a better day. Hope you're really feeling better, though.

I know we all have those days every once in awhile and it's no fun. I think it's just our bodies begging for a break, because what we do is exhausting. Hope today is better.
