More on Beds and Rest

There have been a few times in my life where I have just been wiped out for no good reason. I've been to doctors for full work ups and nobody has found anything. One's advice was simply, "If you're tired, then rest."

I'm not pregnant. I may be stressed about the franchise space (and frustrated and angry), but I'm not depressed. I'm not sick. I'm just so very tired.

Yesterday, the longest day of the year, I put up the white flag. I felt slightly guilty about not playing outside, but the "just rest" comment kept playing in my mind. Despite feeling bad about not running, cooking, or even pulling out the frisbee, I was where I was. My son and I watched Cupcake Wars then Wipeout then 101 Ways to Leave a Game Show (never again) then 24 Hour Restaurant Battle. We watched 4 friggin' hours of tv. Then we slept for 8 hours. I woke up fairly rested, then made coffee, then promptly felt like I could spend the day back in bed.

So here we are. I'm not complaining. I'm not looking for sympathy. I'm just stating.

We are going to Steamboat Springs for the 4th. Mmmmm vacation rest.

  1. Have you considered your diet? I know if I drink a cup of coffee I feel like I need a nap so it could be the coffee is making you tired.
