Dog-tired after a long day

Today was… Well… You know when you suddenly realize you need to pee so bad you don’t think you’ll make it to the bathroom, then you wonder how could you not know you had to pee, and then you realize it was because you barely had time to consider the possibility? Yep, that was today. At some point during the day I sat down and had a few gulps of diet coke and realized my throat even hurt from drinking it. Yep, I was that thirsty that I had to drink it so fast it even hurt.

Anyhow… It was a great day, nonetheless. Right now I’m so tired I’m not even that hungry. I am, and I know it. Last time I ate was over seven hours ago, so of course I’m hungry by now. But I’m just so tired… I’m thinking of the possibilities and trying to decide which one will require less energy to prepare. That’s indeed very sad. Or funny. One or the other, I’m not sure, I’m too tired to decide anything right now.

Dog-tired. Yep, that seems about right.

Bob Hope once said “You never get tired unless you stop and take time for it.” Maybe that was my mistake, to sit down and allow myself feel tired. But gosh darn it, I am going to take time today to just feel tired. And you know what? I think sometimes it feels pretty good to feel tired after a long day of work.

Drained of all energy

Got home tonight and the thought of making something to eat was just too much, so I decided to just drink something. And by something I mean a non-alcoholic beverage.

I was going to grab a coke zero, but then thought “Nah, I’m gonna drink a tea. It’s too late for coke.”

Really? Really Carol? Too late for coke?? How old are you? When did you get to the point that 9pm became too late for caffeine? You, who are so used to drinking coffee til you’re too tired that you fall asleep. You, who can drink coke all day and not postpone going to bed because of it. You, who cannot spend not even a few days without caffeine that you go crazy. Where did the time go, because apparently I missed that memo.

The thing is that I’ve being digging through my body to find what little energy I have to deal with all I have to deal. I don’t go to bed before midnight and wake up around 3 or 4 in the morning to be able to handle all the assignments from my college classes. Then I go to work and have to find patience to deal with children all day long. Then I have classes. And all this finding-energy-where-there’s-no-more is getting to me. And I finally have no more energy left.

I’m tired. No, not just tired. I’m exhausted. Yes, that’s exactly how I feel right now; exhausted. Like all energy was drained out of my body and there’s finally nothing else left. I’m depleted of all my resources or reserves. I’m done.
