i am tired

that is all.

It isn't because there isn't anything else going on in my life. "Tired"... well that just sums it up.

I share an office (another post for another day), and since I started my job in September, we have been passing the sniffles back and forth. The sniffles turned into coughing and sneezing, to sore throats and itchy eyes. My office person is over hers for this round. However my head has felt like an overfilled water balloon since last Thursday. The sloshy head, itchy eyes, running, yet plugged nose, achy body. I am tired.

My mom in law had her 50th birthday party last weekend. Well actually, we threw her a surprise party, all day Saturday.
The car ride to the party was 8 hours one way. I had to drive part of it. It was nice and she enjoyed the day. However each time I had a chance, I snuck out to the car to sleep. I was tired.

Work is busy. I have students applying to 4 year schools and preparing to transfer. I have resume writing workshops to plan, volunteer activities to organize, and paperwork to fill out and file. I have so many things I need to do. I have sticky notes all over my desk. My calendar is filled. I have a 7:15 am appointment on Friday. I need a day off. I am tired.

My house is a mess. Lets not even mention I have boxes and boxes to unpack from our move in November. I have a stack of mail on the counter and another on the table. The dishes are dirty and laundry pile is high. I need to catch up, yet I cannot seem to catch up. I am tired.

sure... I'm just tired... well maybe a little crabby...

Lets hope this week continue to move on by, and this weekend brings much sleep :-)


  1. Take care of you and one sticky note at a time. Sounds like you're having an exhausting time right now.

  2. Hang in there! This time of year is always a downer, hopefully when spring gets closer we'll all have a little more pep in our step! :)

  3. Feel better soon! I think maybe you need a "sick" day soon!

  4. thank you everyone! I too, think a sick day is needed!

  5. Yeah, you need a break. And some pampering! So do I, if you read my post yesterday it sounded very similar. I think we're all running ourselves ragged and getting sick too much. I've read so much about blog moms getting sick. I can't even imagine having to go to work too. Hope you get some rest!
