Tired: exhausted, as by exertion; fatigued or sleepy.
That's what I was yesterday... I was TIRED. Had a hard time waking up and figured I'd get a glimpse of energy after I headed off to work. Nope. Dragged-ASS all day long! I was so fatigued, I actually thought about asking if I could go in the back to take a power nap. During work.
On the bus ride to my car after work, I fell asleep. While I was sitting in my car waiting to meet Dave and the kids, I fell asleep. When the kids and I got home I sat upright on the couch, trying to stay awake while the kids ate their snacks and got ready for bed. I fell asleep sitting up. When we sang our song during snuggle time, I hardly had the energy to form the words. As soon as we all got quiet, I fell asleep.
I had set my phone alarm to tell me when to put the kids to bed. I tucked them in, went back into my room without turning out the living room lamp, and fell onto the bed. I tried to text Josh a "goodnite" but I couldn't spell out the words. I was a goner.
This morning I got up and took the kids to school and as soon as I got home I was back in bed, comatose within minutes. Two and a half hours later the ringing of my phone woke me up. Who knows how much longer I would have slept had he not called...
Anyhoo, there is a reason for all the sleepiness! On Saturday morning I woke up at 3:00 am to be at an overtime shift from 5:00-10:00 am. Then I did my regular shift of 10:30-7:00 pm. After that I went to a friend's place and had some drinks. Didn't get much sleep that night either. Sunday night was better, but still short on sleep. So by Monday (yesterday), I was toast.
GAWD I'm getting OLD!
