Feeling better and yet...

After working Monday night's Cowboy game I was completely wiped out. I had a hard time functioning yesterday and mostly I didn't. I was in bed and asleep by 7pm last night and slept like a rock until about 3am (that's right around 8 hours exactly *rolls eyes*). I rolled over and slept until DH had to get up earlier than normal and then rolled over again and slept until I had no choice.

While my brain is feeling better, I've seriously slacked off on exercise lately and I'm feeling it in the general stiffness and achy-ness of my body. So it's back to calisthenics and evening exercise. I really need to get my butt in gear and start that walking I talked about TWO months ago.

Unfortunately, home life is still adjusting to two things: having my Brown Eyed Girl back in the fold and the changes at work. These changes have meant that both DH and BEG are up way earlier than they used to be and I have lost some of that peaceful quiet time I enjoyed all by myself.

Which means if I want it back, I have to start actually getting out of bed when the alarm goes off at 5. Ugh.

I'm thinking though--get up at 5 and write in the peaceful stillness and then walk when everyone else gets up. Now to just do it.

Here's picture just for the sake of having a picture: a beach in Rockport, Texas--I'd love to be there now.

So what have you been struggling with lately?

Daughter has been feeling tired and had a sore throat for the last couple of days, but she's continued to go to school hoping it was something that would pass. Today it hit her full on and she was sent home from school. So I'm playing nurse today instead of writer.

I'm like your daughter, power through it until the body either submits or says "heck no". You're a good mom, Regina; hope your girl is feeling better in no time.
