8:44 PM

What is it about being old(er) that makes you so tired?  It is 8 o'clock on a Friday night.  Most people would think the next sentence would be "I should be going out..." Nope.  I don't want to go anywhere.  I just want it not to feel like it's 3 a.m.  It's not 3 a.m!

My guess (science!) is that since I work off 5-6 hours a sleep a night, by Friday my body's like... nope. But I don't want to go to sleep (someone told me I shun sleep, that is kind of true), I'd like to:

  • write a million things and make all the money
  • make a grocery list
  • find some new recipies
  • make iced tea magically appear 
  • have clean hair
That list, it's not "what's poppin" (I'm so old) but it's me.

I need to figure out some time management or something.   I've got to rebalance family, work, writing, sleeping, eating, feeding the people who live here.  Right now, I'm way out of balance and I don't have a plan.  I need a plan. 

We still don't know the cause of my mysterious symptoms of randomness, but I believe tweaking my diet will help.  I can say that now that I'm drinking as much water as I can get in, some of my symptoms are decreasing.

I'll probably do some freezer cooking this weekend.  I've figured out that as much as I like to do crockpot stuff, my new schedule leaves things in too long even with the timer.  I need to do all the cooking on my cooking day so all I have to do during the week is warm up.

Follow me on Pinterest, I'll be pinning new recipes and then posting them here, eventually, you know, when I'm not sleepy.  :-)

  1. Ain't nothin wrong with being old...revel in it!

    1. You no longer have to listen to wack music at "da club"

    2. You can easily turn down invitations to parties that start at "11ish"

    3. You can go to bed when you want...kinda

    etc, etc, etc...

    1. Lol. I'm not going anywhere that starts at 11! Unless it's 11 am. Just the thought is horrifying! LOL

  2. I feel the same way. I complain of being tired all day but sit up half the night writing, thinking about writing or fantasizing about a maid. Love how you just want to have clean hair. lol. Changing your diet might actually perk you up some. Hope you get some rest soon.

    1. I could so be asleep right now. RIGHT NOW!!!

      ooohhhh a maid! LOL

      I finally achieved clean hair today. It's an event! Dang fluffy hair of mine.
