So tired

I'm tired.

I don't know why. I was in bed by 10, lights out. The kids woke us up a few times, but only for a little bit each time. I had set my alarm for 6:30, but couldn't get my butt out of bed, even once the kids were awake and in my room. I finally rolled out of bed around 7:30. Maybe starting the day like that, hitting the snooze alarm so many times, is the reason that I am still so tired even now.

I ended up being needed to sub at the kids' school, which was fun, but meant I couldn't get the huge pile of laundry done or finish my resume to apply for the preschool teacher position I want.

At 3:30 I will leave to go back to the Temple to teach Hebrew School.

When I get finished, I will drive the kids over to my sister's with DH so I can go with him to his rehearsal for the show he's currently directing at the Middle School. He is having such a hard time working with these kids! I don't know if it's the age (middle school kids are tough) or if the kids are actually trying to make it hard for him because they miss the teacher who is out on maternity leave. I told him that I would help however I could, so I'm going to rehearsal tonight to try to whip these kids into shape.

And to top it all off, my back hurts so bad. I know it's muscular because I can pinpoint the exact spots where it hurts. I have to get in to see the chiropractor immediately! I know he will make it better; just have to make the time for it.

But, bottom line, I'm tired. REALLY tired. I have to continue to get to bed before 10. It's sad that by 2 today I was counting the hours until I could go to bed. I'm hoping that if I keep getting to bed on time and STOP hitting the snooze button, I'll start doing better. For now, I'm going downstairs to make myself a cup of Chai Tea Latte - I keep bugging Giant until the restock the shelves with the concentrate that Starbucks uses. This last time they called me when the new shipment came in and kept a case behind the customer service desk just for me.

So sorry to hear how tired you are, but you know what to do ---- GO TO SLEEP!!!! Do whatever you have to do to get yourself into bed as early as possible tonight and every other night this week. If you can, take a few minutes to figure out what really NEEDS to happen this week and plot out when you will do those things. Leave everything else for the weekend! If you don't get your rest, you'll just make your back worse and then you'll get sick. Take care of yourself!!!

I think you have some competition for Giant's Chai Tea Latte. That stuff was so delicious.

Are you eating right? I know that meals really affect how tired I am. Either way, Perky is right, go to bed! :-)

Ummmm...you are wondering why you are tired? I am tired just reading about what you had to do today! You had a very busy weekend and you are very busy with three children. I think you answered your own question! Not getting to bed on time + not waking on time + crazy schedule = tired!

Take care of yourself and GET TO THE CHIRO, PLEASE!!!

Pour another cup of chai.

I'm betting you have allergies, because I feel the same way!
