Two cross country meets.
Two early morning practice sessions.
Two nights of parent teacher conferences.
I’m wearing glasses.
Swear pants come out tonight.
Awesome road trip.
Crazy two day teaching workshop.
My week summed up so far. It’s been exhausting, exhilarating, and energetic.
In the midst of all of that, I lost my car keys this morning, resulting in Jim lending me a car to work and back. Also, our apartment complex has decided to do random “yearly inspections” this week.
There’s more NyQuil and coffee in my veins than there is blood…
And I’m loving it all.
Loving this life.
I booked it yesterday. Working from 6:00AM to 8:30PM non-stop. Along with schedule changes at school my day was rather chaotic.
However, with all of that comes this kind reality also…
I slept like a rock last night. I moved once due to a nightmare, but that was it. On too of that I woke up this morning completely refreshed.
I will throw up some praise for an awesome sleep offering!
Let me tell you how last night functioned…
Got off work at 4:45 (stayed late to cover for a teacher). Grabbed dinner to-go from my friends place, and arrived home around 6:30. Finished dinner at 7:00, and fell asleep, while talking to Darco, not waking up until 9:00. Left the couch at 9:00, brushed my teeth, and went directly to bed.
It’s currently 4:30 and I’m wide awake. I’m not complaining because this is precisely how my week has been, just overwhelmingly exhausting. I honestly wonder if my body is wiped from fighting off the recent flu that’s been going through the school, or from dealing with the stress of our recent financial shortfalls.
Either way, I don’t feel guilty for finally getting some much needed rest.
I was able to accomplish the sxheduie from yesterday. In turn I found myself sleeping through the night without moving once.
Now I’m just trying to wake up…
Only day this week I head straight home after school. So much to do, so little time.
It’s 7:00 PM.
I’m in bed.
It’s 7:00 PM.
Why am I in bed?
-Headache (first time in months)
-Exhaustion (…just wiped out…)
-Experiment (training session switch up to the AM)
I’m not sick, I’m not getting sick, I’m just extremely worn out. I blame myself for getting the maximum of six hours of sleep per night this week. Obviously this can set the stage for this problem.
Not upset. Not cranky. Just completely wiped out, and because of how far behind I am in training I’m going to see if I can double up over Friday and Saturday sessions.
Here’s to motivation…and 4:00 AM…
Maybe the weather? The snow? The cold? Whatever the case is I’m struggling to function today. I barely had a “deep sleep” last night, and that alone nearly KO’d me today at school.
I have a million things I need to do, but that element of movement…my body just refuses to comply. This is going to make tomorrow night very difficult for sure I’m afraid, but tonight…
To be real: It just isn’t happening.
