Part of the reason for my recent blogging slump (in addition to “I don’t have anything to say” and “I don’t waaaaaaaaaanna”) and that I have been straight up E X H A U S T E D. I’m tired all the time, and some days it’s all I can do to get through a day of work, walk the dog and then collapse on the couch. Some days I’m too drained to even shower, and on the days that I DO manage to shower I end up falling asleep in my bathrobe with wet, unbrushed hair and my legs hanging off the side of the bed.
I find myself unable to finish anything (or even start anything, really) so I’m going to take a moment to appreciate some of the small things I’ve managed to accomplish this week.
Bought new tank tops. Tank tops are basically all I wear- t-shirts always look weird on me and almost anything with long sleeves STRESSES ME OUT. Like, I can have a panic attack from sleeves. I have to replace my tank tops quite frequently because I wear them to death. Last weekend I finally went out and got some new ones, so now I just have to get rid of the old shabby ones, but that seems impossible to me right now. Baby steps, okay?
Refilled the daycare kids’ soap dispenser in the bathroom. I don’t even want to say how long it’s been sitting there empty next to the refill bottle of soap. Now if I could just find the motivation to fold the load of towels that’s been chilling in my dryer for two days they’d be able to wash AND dry their hands.
Cooked a single meal. It was spaghetti. I had to defrost my homemade sauce AND go to the store to buy the noodles. IT WAS A LOT OF WORK, OKAY?
Finishing this blog post.

Have you been to the doctor? Fatigue for that long for no apparent reason is definitely an indication that you should get checked out.
It’s just work is really stressful right now, I actually feel pretty great on the weekends. UGH. WORK. It’s for chumps.
