How to do it all?

I'm exhausted. Seriously and completely exhausted.

Had to call in sick today or I could see this spiraling out of control.

Slept in an hour later than normal... dog peed in the living room.

I should fix my house, call my cell phone company, finishing addressing thank you cards for my dad's wake (ugh worst job ever), get the dog out for a long walk, etc etc etc...

I just want to pull the covers over my head and see you next week.

I don't know how people have the energy to constantly go go go... I have just about zero.

Also: noticed a trend.... when Chris isn't here, my weight drops 2-3 pounds, when he is here, it goes back to normal. I think he is the one making meals for me and making sure I eat consistently. It's just not a top priority for me.... today, I am going to try. Made a delicious almond yogurt/blueberry/mango smoothie to start the day, even when I wasn't hungry. Just to get the body fed and start the day.

I might go lay back down for just a little bit... see if I have the energy to do anything at all today.


  1. Maybe you just need a day of nothing. I think people call them 'mental health days.'

    Take care of yourself

  2. Generally people who "go, go, go" aren't mourning on top of everything else. You're getting settled into a new house, a new dog, and a new lifestyle. Big life changes here...and it's exhausting. Take care!

  3. Think about everything that has happened to you in the last month alone. Doesn't it make sense that you're exhausted? It's one thing to deal with such huge loss in your life - now you're moving, you have new responsibilities. It's ok to step back for a day and breathe. It's ok to take care of yourself and put yourself first.
