I. am. so. tired. Way too tired to be writing this.
Getting up at 5:15 is killing me. Maybe it's morning duty that's really killing me. Either way, I am more tired today than I have been in quite a while. I don't stay up super late, but getting up so early is making me crash around 3, which is very bad because I still have a lot to do after 3. For example, today, I still have to finishing grading a set of essays, pick up Cara and play with her, cook dinner, cook and freeze a casserole for next week, bake cookies, fold laundry, and sew the sleeves on dress #3. Notice that I didn't list clean up after dinner, bathe Cara, or put her to bed. I love my husband.
This is a unique kind of tired. It's a mental tired, a loss of conscious thought, a desire to stare at the wall, a lack of meaningful language. I would like a nap, but it's not really a sleepy tired. This does not lead to any kind of decent dinner conversation, and I feel a little bad about that.
What do I do about tired? How do I fix it? Do I make any sense at all?
