Oh so tired

I have been so tired and behind on everything lately. I can’t seem to get a thing done. For no good reason, I have not recovered from Las Vegas yet. I feel exhausted and drained. My body feels as though it could just shut down at any minute. The only nice thing about that is that I’m sleeping much more soundly. No insomnia for me when I can barely make it past 9:30. That also means I’m getting much less accomplished, since 9-10:30 are usually my get shit done hours. Boo!
Because of Josephine’s flea bites we have been trying to keep her indoors (we’ve sprayed some stuff out back and in the front, but I’m waiting until the lawn is mowed to take her out). Therefore, nothing at all outside has been done. Nothing. I thought we’d be at a better point than this. But we’re not.
I’d like to have people over, entertain, maybe have a birthday party in November, but the way things are going the lawn will still be overgrown, the artwork won’t be up. We are stuck.
I need inspiration, motivation, energy.
I’m trying to assess why I feel like shit. I’m not eating well, haven’t exercised in months, have one million VERY IMPORTANT things due at work that are stressing me out. That combo is probably killing me. Knowing the steps I need to take is not enough. I have to change now, or my poor health will destroy me. So, since I love lists, here’s one to help me out of the hole I’ve plopped myself into:
1. Eat better. Less junk food (I’m talking to you, Halloween candy), more fruits and veggies. More water, a tad less coffee. Just a tad.
2. Get some intentional exercise multiple times a week. Dancing for 30 minutes with Josephine totally counts. Bring on the Yo Gabba Gabba dance parties!
3. Put up the damn art. Because I’m pretty sure everything will fall into place if we do.
4. Make a relaxing spot outside. Somewhere to sit, entertain, etc. If you build it, they will come (and then I’ll be forced into yard work again).
So there you go. Not too crazy, it seems do-able right now (doesn’t it always though?)
I’ve got to do this, y’all. I’m fading fast.

On a more positive note, Taylor has started finishing up our bathroom (yay!). He put in the toilet and bought our new vanity. It’s nice to have two toilets again. Very nice indeed. Thank you Taylor!
And, although I’m exhausted, we have been having a lot of fun the last couple of weekends with friends (probably directly contributing to the tired, but what can you do? Life needs to be lived, right?!)

  1. i have one word for you – TRANSITION

    I have found that transitions are powerful times and need more respect and time than we give them on the surface….. If they don’t get their needs met they keep kicking our butts! Kinda like a 2 year old….

    You, of course, have been in a huge transition…homes, baby, Los Vegas….

    We are most vulnerable (and sometimes forced to be more productive) in transition. Butterflies, tidal zones, you!

    Taylor super handsome in the photo, you are just super crazy good….

    I agree with you and vote for 3 and 4 being your top priorities to manage transition…Ha!


  2. Kristi the Riva

    Hi Friend,
    When can I come out to hang for you? I just bring my handy-dandy toolbox (fancy hooks and all). You watch the babes run and fall everywhere and within a couple-few hours the transition begins. I can come out Friday afternoon? After work? Let me know… 🙂

  3. Moving is hudge especialy when improvements need to be made. One thing at a time. You guys are doing awsome try not to rush yourselves too much or your wear thin thin thin. Another thought: could you be pregnant? And lastly, if Jo needs outside time you can come play here. Evenings are great for us because Kris doesnt get home till 8 so that last streatch is tuff and its nice to have company.

Tell me stuff...
