It’s so weird to me that most nights I’m utterly exhausted. I don’t classify what I’m doing right now as by any means exhausting. I’m not even exercising much of late. But I am drop, down, knock out tired by the end of the day. I guess this lady-of-leisure thing is harder than it looks!
Realistically, when I’m working a full day in the office, much of it is spent sitting at my computer. And right now I’ve been running around like a mad woman. Today, for example, I woke up at 6:45am, went and taught flute at the kids school, helped sell raffle tickets at our Community Center golf day, had lunch with friends, set said friend up on Facebook, went to the post office (which we have to do to get mail here), picked up a kid from school, went to sign up another kid for math classes, came home, made dinner, hung out with another kid, made school lunches and finally processed a tutu order. This is the first time all day that I’ve sat down at the computer. Sounds quite manageable, right? In fact, I volunteered at a triathlon yesterday and they didn’t have enough for us to do, which drove me crazy! But I don’t feel like I’m working as hard as I normally do, so I don’t get why I’m so knackered. Is it emotional?
I’m looking forward to our office being up and running next month and getting back into a routine with my husband actually living with us (how novel!) and a proper exercise schedule. To that note, we’re actually instituting a new policy in our company, which I’m legally writing into our handbook, that asks employees not to spend more than four hours in the office each day when feasible. I’ll write more about that later, but I for one am looking forward to working my ass of in every aspect of my life! Let’s see how tired I am then!
